She also appears in the Danish film All About Anna, produced by Lars von Trier's Zentropa, where she performed explicit and unsimulated oral sex on mainstream actress/singer Gry Bay; in a twist typical of Zentropa films, she is the only porn star in the film's cast, yet stands out as she does not appear nude in the film (only Gry Bay is undressed during their sex scene).

Ovidie refused to give her real name to the press. Her parents are liberals from "a good family background" who were teachers in 2003.
More DetailsHide DetailsShe was married; her husband left a teaching position at the University of Paris to edit a pornographic magazine. They later divorced, but her job was not a factor in the divorce.
Ovidie has denied entering the pornography industry for either sex or money, describing herself as middle class. Her involvement in dance and choreography, and her interest in expression of the human body, played a part in attracting her to the industry.
At the time that Ovidie became an pornographic actor, she described herself as a "very active militant feminist". She first viewed pornography to get a sense of the injustice that was being perpetrated on female industry workers. She found herself surprised when female porn stars, who she once felt sorry for, impressed her with their powerful sexual images. Wanting to attain this same kind of sexual strength, which seemed compatible with feminist ideals, she began acting in pornographic films. She told The Times Magazine "I am interested in these sort of experiences not just because I am perverse, which as you have seen I can be when I want to be. No, it's because not everyone can achieve them."
Ovidie is a French director, producer, journalist and writer. She used to be a feminist pornographic actress from 1999 to 2003.
