Kylie Ireland was born in Longmont, Colorado. She lived there until she was 15 when her father sent her to live with her mother in San Diego, hoping the change in scenery would change Kylie's hard partying ways. It did and Kylie returned to being a good student who was more apt to study on Friday night instead of party.
During this time she began working at a local video store and was exposed to many different porn movies - her interest in the business along with women was piqued. Nothing came of either interest for a few more years though.
In 1990 she got married and, later, began attending college for Journalism back in Colorado. To make ends meet she, you guessed it, began stripping. Here she began an affair with porn starlet Juli Ashton. It wasn't until 1994 did Ireland follow her girlfriend (with husband in tow I guess?) to Hollywood and tried her hand at modeling and movies. She was an instant hit and even won Best New Starlet at the AVN awards for that year.
Her career since then has been up and down. She has made 100's of movies, opened her own site KylieIreland.com
in 1996, left dancing and modeling to work behind the scenes briefly in 1999 as a spokesperson, was divorced in 2000, returned to porn that same year, became a director and radio show host in 2004 and opened her own production company (SlutWerkz) in 2006.
