Helix Studios performer Angel Rivera has had one of the swiftest—and, at times, controversial—ascents to gay porn superstardom in recent years, and Str8UpGayPorn was able to chat with the stunningly handsome model at the Helix production office in Las Vegas recently. From his rise to fame, the “drama” over the last six months, the misconceptions some fans might have about him, and what it was like growing up gay in a small Texas town, Angel covers a lot of ground in the revealing interview below. In addition to his obvious good looks and sex appeal, Angel is humble, pragmatic, and just a really nice guy, and it was great getting to know him a little bit better.

Thank you again to Helix and to Angel, who let me interview him while he was busy at work in Helix’s shipping department, as you’ll see below:

  • I clicked on this knowing I had no interest in Helix just wanting to be lulled by Zach’s voice. Was not disappointed. 😍

    • Maximus

      I’m happy to learn that I’m not the only one who finds Zach’s voice to be quite sexy.

    OK, one more time for those new to this. It is not being quiet when you post snapchats and insta stories trolling your boyfriend when he is in the hospital begging you to come home. That’s why people think your a dick Angel and you have to this day never explained anything or even admitted the obvious that you were in fact cheating. Ignoring your bf’s calls and texts while you are with another man is cheating sex or no sex.

    • Sean

      Yet his ex has never explained how he fully recovered from severe depression in a weekend. WHat his reasoning for posting OTHER peoples personal information was. The fact is, Ben was a whiney ass bitch who wanted to control somebody. When that person wouldnt jump through his hoops, the drama queen was suddenly hospitalized. It was all to gain sympathy and quite frankly any moron buying his story is an idiot

      • justaloe .

        What does any of that have to do with Angel’s cheating? If Ben with such a terrible boyfriend then why didn’t Angel just break up with him? Angel didn’t show any signs of not being in love with Ben up until the day he flew to Vegas he was even posting sex videos and heart emojis the day before with Ben. He didn’t break up because he wasn’t sure Joey Mills would let him move in based on that leaked Snapchat. So was willing to go back and live with Ben even know he was clearly in love with someone else. It’s a pretty despicable person who would do something like that.

    I watched the whole interview….

    But if I could fuck the interviewers vocal cords, that’d be much appreciated.

    • Galaxy_Scribe

      I’ll wait for a recap. Video interviews are rarely worth it

      • Xzamilloh

        You didn’t much. Even when he looked up from boxing videos, there felt like a disconnect. So I believe him when he says that he doesn’t like to engage the drama online because he was barely engaging here. Like, you couldn’t stop engage the person interviewing you?

        But that’s youth, not anything bad about him per se. He seems harmless. I get the appeal, even if he does nothing for me

        • Sed

          But he did engage the drama online. Big time as a matter of fact. Just because he didn’t tweet a bunch of shit doesn’t mean he didn’t engage. And when he finally did tweet something it was to defend the guy he cheated with. He’s Gaslighting us.

          • Xzamilloh

            I don’t care enough to be gaslit with CW drama. If you say he engaged the drama online, I believe you

  • Galaxy_Scribe

    Str8UpHelix

    • Benjam

      Right? He does seem to be a little too close to this company.

  • peter

    He looks like he’s on the YoungPerps set

    • Hari Kalyan

      LMAO my exact thought. And this was about as boring as a Young Perp scene. I love interviews but Angel is not for me. His looks, his personality, blehh.. they all leave me cold. I don’t get it. But not everything is for everybody.

  • Rubby

    You retweeted and liked a lot of tweets attacking your ex-boyfriend. You made a YouTube video to clarify that you were “innocent.” You even brought the LGBT into the drama to clarify yourself. It’s been a few months now, and you are still clearing yourself up. You say you don’t like drama, you keep quiet all the time. It’s so funny.

  • Thanksegon

    I am not sure why I watched this, and after watching this I am even more curious why I watched this.

  • Paul J

    If he is popular, I don’t get it. He looks good, but surely more is required than that? His porn scenes seem like this vid – he’s not really interested and his mind is somewhere else.

    • tatumon

      He smokes weed all the time, his mind is lost..literally, look at his eyes… they say “Hi,I smoke weed 24/7”
      And I agree, he is hot, but his attitude sucks and his performance is even worse.. like.. Angel has no angel…

    • Hari Kalyan

      Its just in the glass house that is the Helix fandom and this blog he’s notable for his public relationship drama. Outside of that he’s barely a blip on the gay porn radar

  • Tom

    Rise to fame?

  • SaintMike

    Who?

  • tatumon

    Angel is hot, and that’s about it.
    Bad attitude.
    Even worse performer.
    Angel has no angel on cam…
    Also Angel and Joey need to stop smoking weed all the time… their eyes say they soke weed all the time, and they look like stoned zombies…
    Please stop.

  • B.C.

    Nice interview. Looks to me are very important in porn, and that boy is stunning. Face and body. His scenes? Angel gets me hard every time so I’m happy. His attitude, and break up/adultery business? I can’t throw stones when I’ve done the same shit.

  • Dana Rimons

    Nope. Pass.

  • jk500

    Looks wise, he is quite attractive, but his scenes lack any real chemistry as he seems rather disinterested regardless who he’s with. I’m guessing his smokey plant addiction has a fair bit to do with it.

    • Hal Longan

      Yes he does seem super stoned in every scene.

  • Manuel Palomino

    Never liked him

  • James Johnson III

    I can’t deny his physical appearance. He is pretty cute. I get what people see. I’m kinda glad the only scene of his that I have seen is the one he did with Blake Mitchell. Blake has learned how to get the best out of his scene partners over the years and he does there too

  • TK

    The most interesting thing about that interview…people still buy porn on DVD?

  • Alena Conte

    The problem with gas lighting is that every fan has receipts these days. People don’t forget, either. You can’t say you weren’t serving drama when your snaps, tweets and a terrible video prove otherwise. Besides the blatant lies and obvious relationship with JM, he does seem happy now, so kudos to him. Just wish he hadn’t gone about it so poorly and turned so many people off to him. BTW, Zack does have an amazing voice.

  • Link Nla

    I think he’s beautiful. I don’t think I have the right to make judgments about someone else’s life, especially if I don’t have all the information, and if you’re dealing w/ social media you never will ( and even then I still don’t). Anyways, my thing is- what’s with this moral imperative I’m seeing lately in how pornstars live their lives. I say this without malice but, if the purpose of a pornstar is to stimulate us sexually physical attraction and all that goes with it, are they really obliged to do much more? I get that when people reach a certain level of notoriety the public expects to have some access to their personal life. I admit that when I find a pornstar or movie/film star that resonates with me, I wanna know more about them. However, I think it’s wrong to assume I’m entitled to them.

    All that to say, as a pornstar- I like Angel Rivera….a lot. I think he’s super attractive and he does it for me ( I wish he’d top more :P). It also seems like if we grew up in the same neighborhood and were they same age maybe we’d be friends and that allure is extra enticing for me, someone who comes off as accessible, rather than the opposite.

    Anyways, that’s my $4.58 cents- Peace and love :)

    Rise to fame? these gay porn stars kill me thinking they are famous. I mean he could walk through any mall & no one would recognize him lol.
