‘Euphoria’ star Chloe Cherry starred in Zendaya-inspired porn parody

She’s the added cherry on top of the “Euphoria” craze. 

But before adult film actress-turned-HBO Max ingenue Chloe Cherry began stealing scenes as Faye, opposite Emmy winner Zendaya, 25, in the newest season of the illicit substance- and sex-fueled drama, she starred in “Euphoria” parody pornography. 

“My friend and I, who’s also an adult movie star, we were just both huge fans of the show and we thought that that one scene [with Rue and Jules] was just so beautiful,” Cherry, 24, told Nylon of the mock erotica — which was inspired by a steamy exchange between Zendaya’s character, Rue, and Hunter Schafer’s Jules. 

“When you’re making a porn parody, the best way to make them is scenes like that, where they’re already insinuating that sex is about to happen,” Cherry continued. “So that’s usually what people would want to see in terms of a porn parody. Fans really, really liked it. They thought it was awesome.”

And Cherry, who was cherry-picked from Instagram by director Sam Levinson to join the show’s star-studded cast for Season 2, says she hasn’t noticed any dissimilarities between performing in porn and acting on mainstream TV.  

“Before I was an actress of any kind, I, as a viewer, never really saw difference between different kinds of movies,” the Pennsylvania native said when asked if she’d always aspired to transition from sex flicks to major studio productions. 

“To me, it was all like, you’re all acting, you’re all beautiful people. So I guess as the viewer, I never really saw a difference in it, but I guess that was just me, maybe. I’m an actress, just through and through an actress,” she continued. “I’ve acted for a long time. And it’s a different experience, but I would just through and through call myself an actress.”

And owing to her years of on-camera experience, Cherry said she’s become responsible for improvising some of her most iconic “Euphoria” dialogue. 

“A lot of those lines, like the line of, ‘You’re probably eating that ginger’s ass for oxys,’ that I improvised,” she said. “Sometimes in the scenes [Levinson] would be like, ‘OK, just say whatever you want.’ Because he just wanted to see if I would say something funny. And that was one of them that he kept in there.”

And the fans went wild over her slick-speak.

“I was really glad that people liked that [line],” Cherry said. “I’m just so happy to make people happy. I’m so glad that people like Faye. It makes me so happy.”
