AINews Exclusive: An InnerView of Bridget "the Midget" Powerz
Source: Adult Industry News
by: Steve Nelson
Since this interview Bridget retired from porn, and there are rumors
that she is comming back. She is one of the most pleasant people to talk to!
I'm looking forward to seeing her again soon.
I'm here with Bridget Powerz. Hi, Bridget!
[In a sexy voice] What's up? (Laughs)
I usually try to make the people I interview comfortable, but in this
situation you can probably make me more comfortable by telling me what's
politically correct and what's not.
I think it's all about what a person feels, like are you talking about
the word midget and dwarf?
…Because for the life of me I don't know what to say.
Most little people think there's a politically correct way, like if
you want to call someone fat or black, like there is a politically correct
way, I don't believe in any of that garbage. I don't buy into it. Call
me a midget, call me a little person, call me anything you want, because
you aren't trying to make fun of me. You know what I mean?
It makes no difference to me. If you are fat, you're fat. If you're
black, you're black. You're a midget, you're a dwarf, who cares. People
shouldn't be so sensitive.
That's good to here. I couldn't help but try to tread lightly, just
I'm not a sensitive person about anything like that. I've had my share.
How long have you been in the business?
About three years, actually
What have you done?
I've done lots of stuff. Everything, but anal, I don't do anal. I want
to with Ed Powers, though. I want him to be my first. I've been doing
a radio show with him 97.1 every single Friday for a year. So I have
been just seeing him every Friday and I am just falling in love with
this guy, and we have been bonding, so. You know, I like to work with
people I bond with on a certain level. I don't like to just sleep with
someone like that. Everybody I work with there is some kind of bonding
that I go through with them. So, they always end up thinking I am pretty
cool. What you see up on the screen is me with these guys, but you know
behind it I have gotten to know each and every one of them. There is
something special there. That's why I want to do my first anal scene
What did you do before you got into the business?
Hmmmm. Let's see. I'm an entertainer. I do multiple entertainment.
I'll entertain anybody, anywhere, anytime. And no matter what it
is, if it is something sexual, adult, if it is bachelor parties, singing,
commercials, television, radio, I do it all. I have a television show
right now. Before the [Adult] Business I was a fire breather, a sword
swallower, I used to do freak shows. I used to do a lot of commercials
and movies, lots of stuff like that when I was younger. I got older
and kind of got sick of the roles I was getting. All they would call
me to do were leprechaun roles, elf roles, fairy roles, and stupid little
roles that weren't real. So when I turned Eighteen, I thought about
getting into the adult business, but I didn't know how. There's a funny
story about how it happened. But anyway, I got into the business and
so here I am. I like doing it because it's real. You know what I mean?
It's real. I'm not dressed up as an elf or doing all this crazy stuff.
I do that sometimes in some of my movies, but there is a balance, you
know? There's a real person doing stuff and then there's fantasy stuff.
I think we need that in Hollywood, mainstream as well. Modeling and
all that, there needs to be a some kind of balance. Kids are going to
grow up thinking that Elves and Leprechauns exist and that little people
don't exist and we are just figments of someone's imagination. It's
So what you do on film is what Bridget really does in her personal life.
In other words, you are not an elf or one of those gnome people, in
your real life, but you have sex in your real life.
I do have sex, but the sex I have on film, I add an entertainment value
to it depending on my character and role. I know people that do that
in Porn. They say you are just supposed to go there, have sex, get your
money and go, but I think that I bring an extra part into it. I did
a really great movie called Innocence Lost. It got an award or something,
but my scene was probably the best scene out of the entire movie - they
even told me that - and they just said that you were such a pleasure
to work with. Because I added a certain thing to it so it's not just
a "jack-off, lets have sex" thing, It's "jack-off, let's have sex, Gee,
that's kinda neat!" That kind of scene is more real and I'm more into
that. I try not to just look like I'm trying to get my money, but actually
into it. That's what I try to add.
Why did you change from mainstream to doing adult? You had a story there.
Mainstream, Adult, I think it's all the same. I really do. It's all
behind a camera doing something. Some people, they see the adult as
something very naughty. Wrong. But I don't think so. I think it's all
a part of us just as anything else is. How I got into the adult business?
Cute story. I love to go out to nightclubs and stuff. A lot of little
people don't, but I always do. And I like to dress up and look really
cute. I was kinda hanging out at Goth clubs for a couple of months and
I kind of got into the style of Goth and Punk. I incorporated that,
I don't know if you noticed that, anyway, I was at this great Goth club
in Long Beach. I was just dancing and this Gay guy, totally Gay and
flamboyant, really great guy, dancing with me bumping up doing nasty,
dirty dancing. I was like, "Oh God, he's Gay!" But he gave me a napkin
with his phone number on it and he said call me. So I was like, "He's
gay, he's gay, he's gay!" So I called him up and it turns out he's a
make up guy for these people who are doing a porno for the first time.
And they were just so amazed when they saw how cute and sexy I was and
how well I could dance. I have this sexual nature, a sexual energy about
me, he said. He felt it and he was getting turned on, and he said you
gotta do porn. So I tried my first one and I had such a great great
I actually wasn't supposed to be in this one but [the girl who was booked
to do it] didn't do it. So we had somebody else play the part and she
was supposed to shoot eggs out of her butt but she couldn't so I did
it. So that is when I started doing gross stuff.
Wait a minute! You shot eggs out of your butt?
For my first porno I got introduced to porn by this gay guy and it was
a tribute to me that [the other girl] wasn't in it and I shot eggs out
of my butt. I was butt double. A stunt double kind of thing. So you
don't really know its me, but it is really me. I had so much fun. I
explored my body. I found out the things I could do and the things I
couldn't. I am learning a lot more about my body and I think I am getting
a lot more self esteem and more aware of my body and how it works and
also better about myself actually. I have a lot more self-esteem. Who
knows? It's a good thing.
What guys were you working with?
I saw some pictures of you on the Internet of you and Sasha.
Sasha Gabor, yeah.
What was that from?
Probably a Gang-bang. I've done two gangbangs, one with five guys one
with four. I think he was in both of them actually.
I saw a write up on it in Hustler I think.
Those guys I didn't really pick, they kind of all came and I met them,
but I worked with them a second time because I liked them so much. But
I've worked with Rod Fontana, Skip, I've worked with Ed. I don't know
if you know Mickey Blank's Shooting Star, I've worked for him. He does
a lot of videos and he gets me some really great guys but a lot of first
time people. I really like to meet them and we kinda hang out, we party,
we have fun. (Laughs) GET NUDE.
Are you under contract with anyone?
It doesn't sound like something you plan on doing.
Never. I wouldn't want to be tied down. Like with a contract you do
four movies for a certain company, yes. But, not where I am exclusive
with anybody, because I want to keep myself open and free. So everybody
can get a little piece of me.
That's kind of nice to know. Are you touring at all?
Well, I went to England once to do some adult business stuff.
Like the festivals and stuff, over there?
No, actually I did a two month layout thing for Sunday Sport. It was
kind of an exploitation thing.
What do you mean?
Well, it's all exploitation. They made me up to be this little sex girl
that is coming over to England. I was going to do this little movie
and I was going to get laid by all these guys. And you write in, it's
a contest. They showed pictures of me. For two weeks they like showed
pictures. There was this other little person originally, she got no
response because she was so ugly, and big and fat. I was so cute. People
saw me and they tripped! They got more that 20,000 entries, and they
picked 10 guys. I had to work with them. Each and every one of them.
I only got to have sex with two of them because it was pictures in the
magazine, it wasn't a movie. They were all pictures. So the promo said
I did ten but I just did two... hehe. They were nice to me and they
paid me a bunch of money. I got to go there for a month, all kinds of
expense paid. I got money for taxis, I was treated like a queen, I stayed
in the best hotels…
I like doing things like that. I've been in New York. I've met Howard
Stern. I was on the Roseanne Show. I'm going to do the National Enquirer
Television Show very soon. I am working with them right now. So I do
radio, I do cable shows. I love radio. Love TV. One day, I would love
to get my own music show on mainstream television, non-cable, like CBS
or something. I'm working on that. Maybe, one day.
Tell me a little bit about the music.
I've been singing since I was a little girl. Love to sing, but I'm
not ready, you know? When you know you're ready, you're ready. I'm
still working on just getting people together and training and all this
great stuff. And getting connections and learning how to hustle, learning
the art and the business. Not just the mechanics. So, I'm really into
music, I love to sing, I have a really great voice, I think, so.
I would like to hear you sing some time, unfortunately I can't type
what you sound like otherwise I would have you sing something right
That's OK. You can tell I have a nice voice, very strong.
When I first saw you the motivation for asking you if I could interview
you was I thought you were so fucking cute I wanted to hug you.
Its funny you should say that. I can't go out anywhere by myself with
out a bodyguard, especially at night in L. A. Even with bodyguards I
have trouble, walking down the streets outsides clubs, a lot of people.
People will just randomly come up to me and go "Oh, my God, You are
so cute let me pick you up!" They pick me up like a baby, they give
me to their friends, it's amazing. It gets out of hand. Now I have
to have bodyguards with me, they go, "I'm her bodyguard, please
put her down".
It's gotten crazy. God, after doing Howard [Stern], everywhere I go, people
recognize me. I got mobbed once. At Grumman's Chinese Theater. I was
shooting a porno there and I was on Marilyn Monroe's little thing, It's
called Bridget Goes To Hollywood. I was there with my hands on the little
thing shooting this little thing. A couple of like Asian people started
clicking pictures. They thought I was a movie star or something, because
the cameras were there and the sound thing you know the mixer. Then
the next thing you know a couple of white people, all of these people,
then everyone started coming up, they thought it was a big deal. Nobody
knew why they were there but they were all looking at me. They didn't
even know who I was. This one person goes, "I know, that's Bridget Powerz"
A big old huge mob, and it was insane, because no one really knew me
except a few people, but you know.
recognize me a lot. Even in my car. They just see me from my face up
and they just recognize me. I had this lady roll down her window and
go, "You're Bridget Powerz, your so cute! I just think your doing
great, keep it going!" She just drove off, she was all happy. I
get that all the time.
Do you have a website?
Do you want some of this stuff?
while we eat.]
Where were we? We talked a little bit about how you got in the business
and why you changed from mainstream into doing porn, who were some of
the first people you met when you came into the business?
Sharon Mitchell and Jim South, those were the first people I was introduced
to. Of course, it's good to get information from a male and female perspective,
point of view. So that is what they did for me.
What's this about a movie where you came out of a suitcase?
It was my idea, cause as a little girl I always planned vacations and
I always would hide myself. I just thought it was cute. And I had a
fantasy that it would be kinda neat if you could have a man in a suitcase,
cause you know, I could never get men and stuff, cause I was little
and stuff and guys aren't interested. So I had a fantasy about having
a man I could open a suitcase, pop him out, and it would be a little
man, but he was like real. I thought about this years later, when I
thought about it, I thought I'm gonna reverse it. So I stuck myself
in a suitcase. So that is where the idea came from and originally I
called it "Bridget the Midget's Suitcase Sex Story", but it
might have a different title now. But it's so cute! (Laughs)
It sounds wonderful.
I'm popping out of the suitcase Here I am! I think it was a silent film.
Yeah, we did it in a silent film. The art aspect of this porn. (Laughs)
See I told you I add art to it. It was a silent film (Laughs)
I believe that there is a lot of porn that is art.
Yeah, you should see some of the amazing scenes that I've done.
Mixed in with all that terrible stuff. My stuff is art.
Now I want to go out and rent all your stuff.
I have a big ego.
Tell me about it.
Well cause I'm all small, I want to make up for this smallness by being
big. So I just extend it. Do you feel it? [with her foot under the table]
Yeah, don't stop.
OK go on.
Let's see, what movies have you done recently? Do you have anything
Yeah, I'm going to work with Ed Powers very soon. I just worked with
this lady named Cumisha, she has been in the business about 20 years.
AINews: Cumisha Amado
Yeah, Yeah, I just worked with her, did this great film, at a tattoo
parlor. It was lots of fun. Me and a guy named Lucky Star. Black guy.
Lucky! He was my roommate.
I've been seeing a lot of him lately. He's been around. Lucky.
Yeah. What other kind of roles would you like to portray that you haven't
done? Can you think of any off hand that …
You mean in the Adult business? Well, there is one I'm going to do very
soon, coming up, it has to do with a genie, being me in a lamp. A bunch
of men finding it on a beach and using it. They rub it and something
pops out! (Laughs)
Yep, that's my little creation. I'm sure it's been done before, but
I haven't seen it so. Might as well. It hasn't been done with a little
midget genie girl. It needs to be done.
I Dream of Weenie
I Dream of Weenie! (Laughs) We are going to try to do a take off of
I Dream of Jeanie. At the beginning of it we are going to try….
Porn always rips off mainstream…It's OK.
It's OK, it's funny, it gives it more of an edge. You watch something
mainstream and wonder what it would be like from a porn aspect.
I always fantasized about going to bed with Barbara Eden as a kid watching
I Dream of Jeanie. I always wondered why they weren't in the sack.
I know. I used to like think of all the porno that they could do so
It's great, things like this it's just great to do take offs.
Do you like roles where you are dominant or you are submissive?
Dominant. I'm dominant in every single movie I do. I never am submissive
and if someone is dominant, we will both be dominant together. It just
makes it even more interesting. To be in control... except one time,
I wasn't in control, and this guy took total control and just starts
doing his thing with me and I totally was being to, to dumb, not letting
me…and I just slapped him! I jumped off him and said "Hey you! Stop it!"
So I didn't work with him any more. They got a five minute scene and
I guess that has something to do with respect then?
Yeah, very much so. I mean, every guy has a fantasy of taking girls
and spinning her around, but you don't really do it. He tried, it just
doesn't work. Can you do it is it possible?
You mean like this?[I move my hands like I'm spinning her around in
my lap] [Lots of laughing]
Every guy has a fantasy of doing that with a midget, I swear to God.
They all say I've always wanted to have a midget sit on my cock…
Better be lubricated!
...And spin her around… I know he tried to do that and that's why I
slapped him and told him you can't do that! (Laughing)
Do you like working with new talent or experienced talent?
I like working with anybody, new or experienced, because, one person
you get to work with and one person you get to teach with. I like them
Like you said before, you like to get to know them first.
To bond with them and then it doesn't matter, right?
How do people get a hold of you to book you?
That's a good question. Call me… but I don't want to have my phone number
out on the Internet. My website is just getting going.
What about Jim South, can he get a hold of you?
The thing about that is he will get a piece of it, you know what I mean?
Some people don't want to go through that. I don't want to have an agent.
How do you get work now?
Connections. You go to conventions, get a thousand cards and call them
all back and then fill out a thousand forms out of those thousand forms
each person has a connection with 5 other people. Then that becomes
five thousand, then ten thousand. You know how it multiplies out. To
me I got it from like a million.
(Laughs) 35 or something like that. Really 35.
That's not to bad.
No not in a year. Only 2 a month, less than 2 a month. Some girls I
know do two a day. Once a week, some do it every a week twice a week.
Those girls are hopefully putting it into mutual funds or something
to provide for themselves later on instead of spending it. Do you have
a wish list of guys you would like to work with or girls you would like
to work with?
Yes, I wish I could work with Donita Dunes every day, because she
is so beautiful. And ummm, lets see a wish list... yeah, I want
to know about a certain person but I want to do a porn, you know cartoon
characters, you know Club Kids? It's a certain kind of style, they dress
up in pink, they have pink hair, blue lipstick, you look like a cartoon
but your real. I want to do a porn with a bunch of Barbie Doll looking
girls. I want to be the little Club Kid. I want to do one with like
a strap-on and I just want to do a whole bunch of blondes with big tits
that look like Barbie dolls. It's called a Barbie Doll Blowout or something
like that. That's one I really want to do. I always liked Barbie dolls,
I always had fantasies of doing Barbie dolls, cause I used to play with
Are you condom only, condom optional, what are your limitations?
It depends on the situation, on the person, have they been tested a
lot. It depends on the situation. Most of the time I… I really don't
remember… Probably one or two times I've used them and sometimes in
the middle of a scene we will just rip them off. They will be like I
don't want this and I'll be like Well god that's mean, keep it on. Lucky
did that. He took it and ripped it off. And I'm like, "What the hell
is that for.
I give the girl the option, whether or not she wants to use it or not.
Sure, sure it should always be up to the girl.
The last time I worked she wanted to, but when the scene started she
changed her mind.
There are some guys that want to use condoms.
I don't blame them, but she had just been to AIM and I saw the results
and felt pretty confident.
I get my tests all the time.
How long would you like to perform before going into music?
I'll do a couple more, maybe five or ten more something like that. I
kind of want to leave it at fifty, fifty different films. That's my
goal, something like fifty.
It was kind of nice finding pictures of you on the Internet.
Yeah, I hear I am really hot on the Internet. I hear I am all over the
I have to go on and look now after this interview. I have to go on and
People tell that me all the time. Downloading pictures of me.
In fact I have one of you as a screen saver.
Bridget: I have a screen saver?
AINews: I made it. It's you from the Ed Powers Show. The time with Sharon Mitchell
and Talisian. Rachel Worth took a really great picture of you and they
put it on the Internet.
Bridget: Yeah, yeah, I remember that. Talking to Dave Norwood
AINews: Are you really psychic? Do you know what I'm thinking?
Bridget: Stop that!
AINews: Are you politically active? Are you with any anticensorship groups or
would you like to be?
Bridget: I would like to be. I would like to get into the politics of changing
AINews: It's a noble cause.
I want to change the world perception, especially children's perception,
of what little people are. Who and what we are. Because, and this
I know because I talk to kids. I know a lot of young kids 8 years old,
6, I talk to them all the time, I ask them questions every time I get
a chance. I always ask kids about leprechauns, elves, fairies, dwarves,
and midgets, just to get what they are being fed! I have come to this
naughty, naughty, terrible, sad, sad conclusion and I've been doing
this since 15 talking to kids and little people. And it is the saddest
thing in the world, but the big problem is, and this is something I
would really like to do something about, is the way the world perceives
little people, and I think the way the world perceives anything, a lot
of people choose their perceptions based upon what's on television,
radio, the media.
how they look at things, based on what they are fed by that. And if
you watch television, movies or anything, little people, they are always
being made fun of. Hey I can go on and on. There are a few movies where
they haven't and it was a good thing. Like Simon Birch, but most of
the time, Willow, any movie, they are all being made fun of or they
are being shown in a way that is not true. Fantasy. For instance, great
movie Labyrinth, with David Bowie, a little person, a female, they had
her play a dwarf. That was her character, they called her dwarf. The
dwarf had a costume a mask big nose big feet, big voice, everything
was big. It's OK, it's entertaining, but if a child sees it. And that
is all they see and they don't see anything else they grow up as an
adult with a certain perception of what a little person is. So when
I am walking down the street and a child sees me for the first time,
sometimes they are scared because they have seen the movie Leprechaun,
or something like that.
they laugh and think I am a little fairy and I can give them wishes
and they come and ask for wishes. They get all this stuff but they never
see me for what I am, they ask me all the time, are you an elf, are
you a leprechaun, and they ask me this. It is really sad because I've
been to meet these young kids, now I am talking about little people,
not average stature kids. Now with little people, whenever a little
person goes out and they get this feed back, because of the way we show
them, and the little people get this feed back, they feel very, they
have low self esteem, they don't feel good about themselves because
wherever they go they get this stereotype of who and what they are.
It is 100% every time and so a lot of little people don't leave their
houses. A lot of the young kids especially growing up, stay at home,
you know. They are in their teenage years. They should be out there
having fun. That is how I got my self-esteem.
is why I see the world the way it is because I said I am never going
to be like that. I don't care what anyone calls me. I don't care what
people think. All I care about is how I see myself and that is all that
matters. A lot of little people are not taught this. A lot of them
stay at home and don't leave and don't do anything because they are
afraid to go out by the way people react to that. And it is kinda sad
and I would like to help them in a way. I think that Hollywood needs
to do in radio and movies and stuff more little people in a different
point of view. And they have been lately. The movie Elizabeth, I don't
know if you've seen that, but there is a little person in this movie
Elizabeth, a great masterpiece work of art. It shows pretty much what
little people the roles we were given, in the renaissance time. We were
either made fun of. We were all actors, little people were all actors.
I want to do this really great movie but you know how elves and leprechauns
and all that stuff came about? It is just like the mermaids stories,
drunk sailors seeing dolphins swimming.
story of the Fairy for instance, let me go back and think about this
it is very logical, and it makes a lot of sense. Years ago when the
fable first started, it was probably some drunk guy, drunk off his butt,
walking through the forest and little people back then, we were so rare
to find one that a lot of them probably didn't live in the village that
they were in. A lot of them probably left and lived off in the woods.
In little houses and built a little place for themselves because they
were not like everyone else. And there are a lot of types of little
people. Thousands of different types. It was probably a pituitarian
type of dwarfism person, who had this dwarfism. Didn't know what was
wrong, probably left, went into the woods, cause everyone looked at
them funny. Pitutarian is exactly proportional to you but small. So
they are the ones that look like the fairies.
this guy was drunk and saw this little midget girl probably making her
own clothes. That is probably why leprechauns were green because these
guys lived off in the woods. And they probably dyed their clothes in
green and stuff because that was what was around. Most of these stories
come from drunken people seeing little people run around the forest
doing crazy stuff. Especially if you are drunk and trip over, probably
a leprechaun, this I love. A drunk trips over a rock fell down, a little
midget person lives in the woods comes over and says what's wrong, can
I do something, can I get you something, he was so drunk he thought
the guy was offering him three wishes. He bandaged up his head, picked
him up, gave him some tea to help him with his hangover and stuff. And
that guy is like well, I tripped over this rock and this leprechaun
gave me three wishes. And look I'm OK now. That is probably how the
story started. He told somebody, and you know stories get big. There
are so many explanations for these little fairy tales and fables that
the world has so grown on and to this day the only role a little person
can get is a role like that. Which is not real. Which is funny, the
irony of it is it is derived from us anyway.
is the irony of it and that's why they think it is real. Because that
is why I want to do a story about this, that is why I want to do children's
movies explaining what leprechauns are how they started. That would
be great. Imagine the scene a great scene like that. I really would
like to change the world's perception of that. I am doing a bunch of
shows and I talk about this openly. Something like this I'd like you
to type everything I just said so that would be a really great message.
That is why I like to do porn though.
Why, why do you like to do porn? Other than the obvious.
Mainstream you don't have that kind of power. Because everyone owns
everyone. You know what I mean you just you don't have that kind of
power. In porno you have a lot of freedom and power and choice of what
projects you do. You know what I mean? 'Cause it's such an easy business
to do, so, you have a lot of freedom of choice. So I balance out what
I do. I'll do a leprechaun thing, like for Playboy, I'll do the Elf
thing, but I'll make it cute. You can't make fun of me, but I'll make
it cute. I'll add a balance to it. So everything I do there is a balance
to it and a real person is doing something. It's not like, a couple
of people have done that to me and I don't like it.
How involved are you in the editing phase?
That is a good question. The editing?
Yeah, that would be a good phase for you to be involved in.
Not really, but every time I watch them they come out good. I'm very
good. If you want to take pictures of me I'm very photogenic.
I wish I had my camera. What am I going to put online with this interview?
I look good too, right now.
You do. I'll have to see you again.
Uh huh. ...
AGHHHH, I ate a hot pepper! (Laughing) You want to see me stick a straw
up my nose?
Well, let me put on my glasses.
I'm kidding, just kidding.
Not really, I don't really want to see you stick a straw up your nose.
I can stick it up my nose and ram it up far enough; I used to do freak
shows. You didn't know that about me did you? I used to do my renaissance
I keep having this fantasy of you and this really, really tall girl.
She's like an Amazon Woman. Huge breasts, like unbelievably tall, like
6'6" or something.
OK, this girl was 6'4". Kari Sparks?? She was huge, she was like tall,
she was so huge, she was like an Amazon. And she is sexy! She is big
