Sasha Grey was born and raised in North Highlands, California to a working class family. Her mother worked for the state of California and her father is a Greek-American mechanic. Her parents divorced when she was 5 and subsequently she was raised by her mother, who remarried in 2000. Grey states that she felt miserable at home around her stepfather, and as a result at 16, informed her mother she was going to move out. It is unclear as to whether or not she in fact left the home. She's stated that while her parents don't like everything she does, they get along. Grey attended four high schools, among them Highlands High, before graduating, having been unhappy in each one, though it should be noted she graduated a year early, at 17. In autumn 2005, she attended junior college and took classes in film, dance, and acting. She waited tables at a steakhouse through March 2006 and saved $7,000 for a move to Los Angeles.
