Paddy O'Brian | Man Crush Blog InterviewHe’s perhaps the biggest porn model from the U.K.–Paddy O’Brian. Sexy, fit as fuck, and the object of just about everyone’s affections both gay and straight (and everything in between), you may think you’ve seen and gotten to know everything there is to know about this stud … until today. In this exclusive interview I asked the questions you’ve been wondering, from the “gay-for-pay” banter to questioning the gradual evolution of one of the industry’s most talked about stars. Photos in today’s interview are from COLT Studio Group, Men.com and Landis Smithers (www.landissmithers.com).

Ice Breaker
Man Crush: Let’s start off with some random questions to make sure you’re awake and on your toes. What’s a talent, outside of porn, that you have that would probably surprise everyone?
Paddy O’Brian: First of all I’d like to say a big ‘ello to you and my lovely fans and friends! What talent do I have outside of porn? [laughs] I have many talents, like fighting, which I have done from a young age. Mostly learned on the street but I boxed, too. Tried karate–it wasn’t for me.

The gym is in my genes. I thrive in it and would love to help others achieve their goals. Also, I was a runner, an athlete in school and was top 3 in my district. Performing and acting is a talent that I’d like to think i have.

Picture this scenario–You end up in the hospital and have to stay overnight. Who do you want in the bed next to you?
So, I’m picturing that I’m in hospital like you said … first, I want my docking station so I have my music–it keeps me calm. I love my music! Back to your question, I would say my loved ones but as long as they’re safe I’m cool with my music for the night. Otherwise I’d have many answers.

What, in your opinion, makes British men so darn irresistible?
It’s in our blood! [laughs]

I’d imagine you render many unsuspecting admirers and fans speechless when they meet you in person. Who would you feel starstruck by during an unexpected meeting or passing in public?
Hmmmm. If I was to meet a celebrity that would make my jaw drop, it would have to be Beyoncé. Or Mike Tyson. Someone like that. Jaw on the floor!

Attitude magazine just released it’s Hot 100 list and it was topped by Tom Daley. Now, I personally think you were robbed because you should’ve been number one but what man would top your own Hot 100 list?
Attitude did just release the new top 100 and yes, I was robbed! Grrr [laughs] There’s always next year. And who in my top 100 list would top me? Hmmmmm … my dad. He’s the man.

The Porn
Any true Paddy O’Brian fan like I am who’s followed your career from the start to present day would see how gradual it’s been. You’ve gone from solo scenes to your most recent Men.com scene that involved you being on the receiving end of a gang bang. How’d you describe your approach to your career? How much thought goes into choosing the scenes and deciding how far you’re willing to go?
Everything I do is my choice. There’s an actor, porn star, someone doing it for fun, or because they wanna sleep with that person. I do it because I have a passion for every aspect of it–the filming, the acting– I approach it wanting to give my all. I love pleasing people and making people happy. A lot of us put our hearts into it. If you’re gonna do a job, do it properly. We are all actors that perform. I personally just like being naughty and fucking that camera. I always think about my fans and what they want. It’s never forgotten.

Paddy O'Brian | Man Crush Blog InterviewNo one can seriously say you aren’t invested in any scene or endeavor you take part in but there are a few out there that have slapped the label of “gay for pay” on you as if to say you’re just a hot straight bloke playing into the gay fantasy. How’d you address these critics? Do you think your personal sexuality and preferences should even matter to those watching you in porn and following your career?
Now when it comes to this question, no people shouldn’t be bothered what sexuality I am. So what if I identified as gay, bi, straight, black, white, German or English … I am me. I will never change or let people label me. I am who I wanna be, just like everyone else has the right to be who they are.

I hate bullies and I hate people who belittle others. The people who have questions or disagree are the problem since they aren’t letting people be happy, are questioning, or are wanting answers. Just look after number one–yourself. Love yourself because when you can you’ll learn to love others. So no, it shouldn’t matter. If it does… wash me out of your head, and stay out of people’s business if you haven’t got something nice to say.

You’ve been involved in the porn industry for a while now. With some experience to draw from, what is something about porn and the industry you’ve been surprised about?
I’m all about positivity so I’ll say something nice–the respect and love I have gained doing what I do. Very grateful, man. That and the doors it has opened for me. [smiles]

One trend I’ve seen seize the porn industry over the past year or two has been the rise of bareback porn. Studios and performers that once stated they’d never engage in producing bareback scenes and films suddenly are doing it. What’s your personal view on this subject?
My personal view on bareback porn … NEVER! No excuses. We all get tested but what some people do in their private lives … hmmm. We don’t know BUT is it worth it? To each their own. Don’t get me wrong, but it’s not something I would promote. I’m all for safe sex and educating people.

I saw in another interview that you’d be up to one day direct a scene. Do you ever see yourself setting off and heading up your own studio or would you want to work more in the producing and directing role with someone like Men?
Many times, my friend. Experience is the key and yes, I’d love to. I have so many ideas and dreams. All in good time! If I had my own studio I would definitely give people what they wanna see: real sex– naughty, real, hard, passionate  with close-ups. The noise of the stickiness. [winks and smiles] Dirty minds make good porn and I was born dirty. I could do anything I put my mind to. We all can!

The Body
I’m always curious about the body of a porn actor. Basically, your body has to be on point and presentable at all times or you’ll face an uphill battle finding work and being taken seriously by studio producers and your viewers. Do you feel the porn industry and it’s heavy emphasis on staying fit and appearing near perfect is a good or bad thing?
I think everyone’s appearance is important in porn. We all know what we are there for. Gym has been part of my life since I was 17 so it’s easy for me to maintain my fitness and stay fit. I stay fit and healthy for me, my family and of course my world. It won’t last forever! Or will it? [laughs]

What’s your fitness regimen like? Do you stay fit more so with exercise or is it nutrition? Let us in on the secret to getting a body like Paddy O’Brian!
Eat healthy, good meals each day. Plenty of water. 6 days a week I train for an hour a day, and have for every day for 11 years with a little break here and there.  Just watch them foods, eat good and join the gyms. Who knows–one day I might have my own gym, or maybe a bar or a club. Dreaming again! Dreams do come true, you know. You have to push a little, though.

We all have a favorite and least favorite exercise. What do you find yourself dreading when it comes to working out?
There’s nothing I don’t like about training or exercise. It’s good to keep fit and pump. It all helps with anger, stress and is magical.

I’m always drawn to your abs when I see you Tweet or post a pic of yourself on Instagram. Do you have a favorite move to carve out awesome abs?
Aww, thank you man [blows me a kiss as I attempt not to swoon out of my chair in response]. My abs are just me. [winks] I’m lucky! [laughs] I do 150 a day–crunches and leg raises. Try it! And try 2 minute plank.

If you had one piece of fitness or nutrition advice to dispense to the readers of this interview, what would it be?
Drink plenty of water–it’s IMPORTANT. No excuses. Muscles are made up of water. It keeps us alive and hydrated.

Let’s forget, as hard as it may be, just for a second that you’re a big-time porn model. Take the porn away and what we’ve seen in scenes and pictures, who is the man behind Paddy O’Brian?
Who is the man behind Paddy O’Brian? My real name is Liam, I’m 28 years old, I’m an aries, I love my family to bits i have a 18-year-old sister named Sine’ad, who’s my world. I love to help people, would help a lady across the road with her bag–that’s me. Not a lot of us left. I’m a gentleman behind the camera. I’m crazy, too. What can i say? I’m just me. Paddy is me, and I’m Paddy, I’m Liam, I’m different.

What’s one big misconception that people have about you that you’d like to dispel?
If people have a misconception about me, I haven’t got to explain myself. It doesn’t bother me. I know who I am and I’m a nice person, until double-crossed. I’ve been brought up rock-hard solid. If anyone has any misconceptions about me they can sit on it. [smiles]

You see about a dozen or more guys pop up on Twitter and elsewhere each week who say they want to be porn “stars.” In your opinion, what does it take to be considered a porn star and what advice would you give to someone considering a career in porn?
For those who think or want to be a porn star, I’ve seen lot of tears in this industry. You have to know your place and be strong and not care what others think or u will break. Be safe and have fun. Plus, never forget your fans. [smiles]

What’s been the best moment in your life so far and what’s been the worst?
The best moment in my life so far, is where I am going. I can feel success so I’m on a journey and no one can stop me. The worst part of my life was when I was 15 and I experienced things as a child and went through a few hard, tough years. It could make a real good book or film. It made me become the man I am today and gave me real strength–both to my heart and to my mind. People are to quick to judge! Tsk tsk, shame on them. No one knows what happens behind closed doors but as they say,  ignorance is bliss.

You get the final word. What parting thought or message would you like to leave with all the readers and fans out there?
I would love to say so many things. I’m sitting here listening to Drake on a Friday night, I have all my scenes coming out soon this month … I’m just staying fresh and am ready to give my all. I’m so grateful for all the love and respect I get. I have made so many lovely friends on Twitter–you all mean the world to me. I’ve got so much coming–calendars, posters, a book, my website, products. You just wait and see. When I do something, I do it properly. Speak soon lots of hard loving

  1. First, the positives. The writer is right, those abs … I could (and occasion do) stare at them endlessly. They are, by far, his most impressive physical feature. Liam’s/Paddy’s advice — diet is essential — is spot on. Working out is important too but if you consume 3,500 calories a day and burn only 1,500, well, no matter your natural metabolism, the unused calories have to go somewhere. My fellow Ram’s other positive trait — as a porn performer — is the chemistry he has with his partners. His make out scenes alone can make you climax. He gives his all and — whatever his personal sexual preference — he deserves all the credit for making it look and feel “real.” Romance — who knew?

    All that said, I wish he would play nothing but deaf characters who cannot speak. The Cockney accent is about as grating and offensive as any dialect of English can be — that’s what makes the musical, “My Fair Lady” so great. The whole point of the story is to get that “gutter snipe” to speak proper English. If Liam/Paddy could do that, he’d make the perfect boyfriend.

    My two cents.

  2. I love Paddy’s cock… absolutely perfect… and that’s all that should matter right? But his hypocrisy makes me never watch him perform ever. He says bareback porn “NEVER.” Oh reeeeeeeeally? What he should really have said is no bareback with a MAN because he did bareback before with a woman in a straight porn movie called Shagless. Scene 4. No thank you, Paddy, for your homophobia. You won’t be getting any of my money.

  3. The question:
    What, in your opinion, makes British men so darn irresistible?
    It’s in our blood! [laughs]

    My answer:

    In my opinion, I believe is for the accent, sound very attractive, sexy and gets people attention. that’s why you see in thousands of movies that actor’s that speak with the British accent get hire for characters in movies, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Thor, Norse Movies, Harry Potter Movies Snow White & The Huntsman, etc and TV shows.

    British Accent is what make them irresistible. That’s the true, or ask Madonna.

    Paddy got my attention: 1st his accent, 2nd his personality, smile & way of laughing, 3rd great build hairy ass.
