Katsuni – Adult Film Star

January 26th, 2015

Katsuni, formerly born as Celine Joëlle Tran, is a former French adult film actress also known as Katsumi, Atsumi, Kamasoo and Belgazoo. She was born on April 9, 1979 in Lyon, France. She is of French and Vietnamese descent, her father taking the former side and her mother taking the latter. She is known to be fluent in both French and English.

At the age of 18, Katsuni entered the Grenoble Institute of Political studies, where she studied Political Science for a year. In 2002, the adult film industry was swept away as she made her debut in the industry at the age of 23, appearing in a number of successful and popular adult films. She initially used the stage name “Katsumi”, a common name in Japan used by both sexes. She was eventually asked to stop using the name in 2007 when a woman named Mary Katsumi filed charges against her for using a name that closely resembled the complainant’s. Aside from being ordered to stop using the name “Katsumi,” she was also fined 20,000 euros in October of the same year.

Some of these awards include being the “Best Starlette” in 2002 at the FICEB Ninfa Award, “Female Performer of the Year” in 2006 from the AVN Award, “Best French Actress” in 2009 from the Hot d’Or Award, “Foreign Female Performer of the Year” in 2011 from the XBIZ Award and the most achievement being a Hall of Fame Inductee in 2014 from AVN. Complex magazine also ranked her at #14 in their 2011 list of “The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars (Right Now).” She was also in the #3 spot on the magazine’s list of “The Top 50 Hottest Asian Porn Stars of All Time” on 2013.

Along with being a showgirl and being featured in over 350 adult films, Katsuni also become a brand ambassador for the clothing brand Otaku and an endorser of Alloresto. Her commercial success for an adult film actress is uncommon and proves that she is well loved by a wide audience. She even gained a spot among the exclusive roster of the 100 Most Influential Women in France.

On August 14, 2013, Katsuni announced her retirement from the adult film industry. With this, she also announced that she will still continue to perform occasionally and do strip tease performances.
