Mary Carey (born June 15, 1980) is an American pornographic actress. Carey was born Mary Ellen Cook in Cleveland, Ohio to a mother with schizophrenia and a father with cerebral palsy and was cared for by her grandparents from the age of three months. After her parents divorced, her mother moved in with Carey and her grandparents. At seven years of age, she and the family moved from Cleveland to Florida, and the next year Carey was legally adopted by her grandparents. Carey studied ballet from the age of seven until she was 19-years-old. She graduated in 1998 from the Pine Crest School, a Fort Lauderdale private preparatory school. At 19, she joined the dance team at Florida Atlantic University, where she was a student in the theater department. After her grandfather's death, her grandmother's health worsened and Carey took a job as an exotic dancer to help support the family financially.
