Fresh Faces: Jorden Kennedy

This article originally ran in the November 2016 issue of AVN magazine. Click here to see the digital edition. Hometown: Somewhere in New Jersey | Age: 23 | Height: 5'8" | Weight: 145 pounds | Eyes: Grey/blue | Hair: Brunette If Jorden Kennedy is a little unsure about what her hometown is, that's probably because she's what's called an "army brat." "Because I was an army kid, we probably moved around every year or so, and so I constantly had to go to a new school, learn a new city, and I constantly had to make news friends and adapt to situations so I could fit in and get along with everybody for about a year—and then we'd move again. Moving around a lot definitely gave me the ability to adapt to situations really quickly. I'm very outgoing and comfortable and confident because we had to do that." But did all that moving make it tough to form long-lasting relationships? "It did," she responded. "You have to be very purposeful in your long-distance correspondence, but the people that really matter stick around, so the ones that are the true-blue friends stick with you throughout the moves." A college graduate in equine science with an eye toward becoming a veterinarian, Kennedy is currently taking a break from her education. "My goal was to go to vet school, but after I graduated, I did an externship at a vet office and I found out that I really struggled a lot with putting the animals down," she admitted. "It was really hard on me, so I wanted to take a break and kind of reevaluate if that was what I wanted to continue doing, because vet school is really expensive. So right now, I'm kind of taking a break. "I've been working since I was 15," she added. "I started out as a dishwasher at a bar. It was a good first job, and it taught me to work hard, and my parents were very adamant that if I wanted to do things like go out with my friends, I had to use my own money, so from a young age, I've always worked; even did babysitting was I was pretty young. I worked as a chef to put myself through school and I'm still paying off loans. I worked for a catering company, so I dealt with large amounts of food, but I specialized in gourmet desserts—and that means I do a lot of working out because I love sweets." In her spare time, Kennedy is quite the dancer—ballroom, not exotic—and she particularly likes the tango. "The Argentine tango is a beautiful, passionate, intense dance," she explained, which differs from the American tango. "It almost looks like ballet. … It's kind of like a mash-up that originated in Argentina, and it's a gorgeous dance. It's done with these really cool shoes that have suede on the bottom so you can slide across the floor really easily. It's a beautiful dance." Kennedy is also something of a horsewoman. "I really love horseback riding; that's what I did all throughout my childhood years, and then through high school and college, I rode horses," she said. "I rode Western, English and sidesaddle; and I did polo for a while as well." Animals even figure into her philosophy of life. "The words I live by are, ‘Lions are not worried by the opinions of sheep,’” she told us. "What that means is, I need to be myself—not in an arrogant way. … When people [say] 'You should do a real job,' or they give me a hard time about my appearance, or if I have a bigger butt than normal, or whatever, I'm just like, 'You know what? I don't care about the sheep's opinions because I'm a lion, and so it's just like I hang out with the other lions and we're cool, because we don't hang out with sheep.' “It's just kind of a self-confidence thing,” she continued. “Tons of people will bring you down; everybody will bring you down, so you can't also bring yourself down, so you have to be your number one fan and just say, 'You know what? I have self-esteem, and just because they have a poor opinion of me doesn't me I have to have a poor opinion of me.' I think that you need to have good self-confidence in order to succeed in life—not just the adult industry, but life. If you have good self-confidence, you don't need others' approval to succeed, and that's something I try to give myself: Be confident in yourself and be confident in your abilities and do your best." When we spoke with Kennedy, it was soon after the news had broken that Cecil the Lion, a protected cat in a Zambian wildlife preserve, had been gunned down by a Michigan dentist, and Kennedy was outraged at the incident. "I hate big game hunting! I hate it so much!" she exclaimed. "You know the thing about lions? They're always hanging out in the shade and sleeping and lounging around. It's not like you're stalking a deer or anything like that; it's a lion. And they're so fundamental to the ecosystem as well, and I really struggle with hunting predators." Kennedy's only done a few scenes, but one of her faves was for Girlfriends Films, directed by Dan O'Connell and starring Mindi Mink—but she can't remember the title of it; she just recalls that the plot involves a MILF website. She's also quite happy to be represented by Ideal Image Management. "I love working with Ideal," she said. "They take such good care of me; truly, like in every single way. I've gotten booked almost every single week; it's fantastic; it's great, because I'm fairly new still, and they make sure I get all of my information; they make sure I'm happy with how everything's going on the set; they make sure that I'm happy as a model and getting the bookings I need. They take good care of me and we frequently have parties at the Supperclub, which is great for the other models and it's a great atmosphere to work in, and Isiah and TJ and Corey are great to work with. I really enjoy them." Find her on Twitter (@jordenkennedy) and Instagram (therealjordenkennedy). Photo above by Chris King/ReelSeduction.com.
