Randy Pubert: So tell me how you got started in the biz?
Matthew Rush: I actually was discovered by a Falcon rep in a bar in Columbus, Ohio.
P: What was your first movie?
R: My first movie was Bounce.
P: What is the most surprising thing about porn that you didn't expect?
R: I guess it was the models in the industry. There's a stereotype that we are all full of ourselves and we aren't intelligent. Most of the guys that I have met have been really down to earth and have lives outside the porn industry.
P: What has been the funniest thing that has happened on a porn shoot?
R: My very first shoot with Chi Chi Larue was a riot. She's very vocal when she directs. During a scene, she told me to tell my scene partner to 'Lick that sweaty bodybuilder ass.' I started cracking up! Who the hell says that during sex? I would never say anything like that. Every time I tried to say it, I would laugh. It took a good ten to fifteen takes to get it right.
P: What is your exercise program like?
R: I try to hit the gym four or five times a week. I'm pretty strict with my workouts and diet.
P: Are you friends and family surprised at what you do?
R: My family doesn't know but my friends do. I think at first they were a little surprised that I decided to do porn but now they are pretty cool with it.
P: What is the craziest thing a fan has asked you to do?
R: To be honest, I don't get a lot of crazy requests. The most popular request is guys want my sweaty jock straps. I don't wear jock straps.
P: Describe yourself in a personal ad.
R: I'm really not very good at describing myself. I consider myself to be somewhat of a dork. My friends would agree. I'm basically a twelve year old stuck in a thirty-something body.
P: What are your upcoming projects?
R: I will be doing the play Psycho Beach Party in Austin for six weeks in September and October. I was also in the comedy Another Gay Movie which is out now in select theaters.
