Melissa Hill (born January 8, 1970) is a former pornographic actress and director. She was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2014 and XRCO Hall of Fame in 2015.
Hill began her career in the adult entertainment industry in 1992 by first modeling in photo spreads in magazines such as Club, Hustler, and High Society. She proceeded to start acting in adult films a year later and appeared in more than 200 movies, for a wide variety of producers, over the next ten years until her retirement from hardcore. Over the course of her career, she was nominated for several AVN Awards. Hill won the Best Actress—Film award in 1997 for Penetrator 2 (Pleasure Productions). In 1998, she was named Best Supporting Actress—Film for Paul Thomas' Bad Wives (Vivid Entertainment). In a 2015 interview, she claimed she retired in part because she did not want to age on camera and in part because she felt her career had reached a "plateau", and she found herself not getting another contract and not wanting to succumb to plastic surgery.
Hill has also appeared in a variety of mainstream productions, most notably the porn-themed comedy Orgazmo from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. She has acted in non-sex roles, including Beyond Fucked: A Zombie Odyssey and the porn parodies Underworld and Measure X.
Hill is a San Francisco native, and she spent most of her childhood studying ballet, even becoming an instructor for five years after graduating from high school.
