Jeanna Fine (born Angelique Michele Payson on September 29, 1964) is an American pornographic actress[1] and erotic dancer.


Adult film actress Barbara Dare remarked how "fine" Jeanna was, which prompted Jeanna to adopt that as her surname.[1] She was romantically involved with fellow pornographic actress Savannah.[2]

Fine began in the adult movie industry as a blonde-haired punk-girl when she was 21 in 1985.[1] She made fifty movies between 1986 and 1989.[citation needed] She re-emerged as a black-haired in 1990.[citation needed] According to Fine's official adult film bio, Fine's adult film career was noted to have several large gaps between performing, such as during the pregnancy and birth of her son.[3]

According to her IAFD page, Fine made her last non-compilation film in 2002.[1]

Fine was inducted in the AVN Hall of Fame in 1997.[4] She is also in the X-Rated Critic's Association's[5] Hall of Fame.

Fine appeared briefly in the film The Boondock Saints, as a dancer working the adult parlor where an attack was made on a mafia character played by fellow adult star Ron Jeremy.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Fine became involved in a long-term relationship with fellow pornographic actress Savannah, who claimed to have fallen deeply in love with Fine.[7] In a 1999 interview following the airing of the E! True Hollywood Story about Savannah's life and death, Fine commented, "We had an ongoing, on-again, off-again, volatile, loving relationship. At that time I was having a lot of problems myself. Between [male porn actor] Sikki Nixx and Savannah pushing and pulling, I pretty much at one point ran away from them both. I couldn't take it any longer. But I feel I left her behind when she needed me most. It's very sad."[8] Their relationship has been described as troubled due to the two women's heroin addiction.[7]
