"When I was a little girl, and I was on the show... I was shy, and then that shyness turned into anxiety, and that was only because, from the shyness, I didn't want people in my face all the time, so while I was on set, I was fine, after I got off the sets, that's where I started having most of my problems concerning anxiety.

Quotes

  • I'd never lived a normal childhood, I always went to auditions.
  • I felt ridiculous & degraded after making my first porn video, I never thought anyone would find out...at least not for a few years.
  • Telling my mother that I have acted in a porn movie was the hardest thing in my life.
  • I couldn't hold my head high, I couldn't walk around and say, 'My name is Jaimee Foxworth' without someone saying, 'Ew,' or, 'We heard about you'
  • Always have another option. Try to go for your dreams. Don't try to be just what you see on TV.
  • Being sober has opened my eyes to a whole new world, I’ve been through a lot of pain in the past, and I never really wanted a child until recently. I now look forward to years of joy to share with my child
  • I am so excited to be a mother and I also look forward to getting back to work.
  • Half of the women will see you and (assume) that's what (porn actress) you will ever be. But, for me, I redefined myself by being a mother and connecting back with my family as a whole and remembering who I was growing up. [3]
  • I just wish that more people had compassion and empathy when it comes to younger stars.. first of all, we are all humans, second of all, you do not know what they are going through, a lot of times these kids are trying to live up to what people think they are supposed to be or who they are supposed to be. [4]
