Joanie “Chyna” Laurer continues to maintain that she has never used anabolic steroids. She recently addressed the steroid topic along with questions about her new porn career in an interview appearing in the November 30th issue of Steppin’ Out Magazine.

Laurer told Steppin’ Out that she was lucky she never had to use steroids to attain her muscular physique. She claimed she always had a “killer monster” body and wasn’t ever “conveniently pretty”. Consequently, she has often been asked if she used steroids.

“So right off the bat people were asking me if I took steroids. I didn’t even know what they were talking about,” Laurer proclaimed her early ignorance of the drugs.

But once she learned about steroids, Laurer claimed her fear of steroids kept her from entering the “dark world” that “few come back from.”

“But steroids were a very dark world. It scared me. I knew about it very early on and I decided to look the other way. I knew some people had to do them and I didn’t judge,” Chyna told the magazine. “But I also didn’t want to be a part of that world. I knew I was ugly but inside I was a very feminine woman. Steroids are a lifetime choice that few come back from.”

Laurer is best known for her work as a professional wrestler with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) between 1997 to 2001. She was billed as “The Ninth Wonder of the World” and has been the only WWE Diva to have competed exclusively in the men’s division.

She has since appeared in Playboy and in television reality shows such as “The Surreal Life” and “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”

Most recently she has starred in an adult movie, Vivid Entertainment’s “Backdoor to Chyna”, released in June 2011 at the age of 40. She has expressed interest at continuing a career as an adult film star.
