Linda Lovelace

Pornstar Profile, Date added: 03 Jul 1995

Linda Lovelace is an American pornstar who was born in the Bronx, New York. She was a Capricorn by the signs of astrology and has brunette hair and deep brown eyes. She stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 128 pounds. Her body dimensions are about 34C-24-36 and she has never had any implant surgeries. She has no tattoos or body piercings whatsoever. She was never known by any alias names during her career although she did appear in several short films with no credits whatsoever. She was said to have had a son out of wedlock when she was about twenty years old who her mother reportedly put up for adoption.

Linda was said to have been born to a working class family and had a rather unhappy family life while growing up. Her mother was said to have been quite harsh and a domineering disciplinarian, while her father was a police officer. It's been said that her father was rarely home except for after she had gone to bed for the evening because of his long hours of police work. Miss Lovelace attended a couple of private Catholic schools including Saint John the Baptist school in Yonkers and Maria Regina High School in Hartsdale, New York. People remember that she had been given the nickname "Miss Holy Holy" because she would never let her dates get too close to her physically. Before she came of age, her family moved to Florida after her father had retired from the police force. At a point soon after she turned nineteen, she moved back to New York where she was raised and attended computer school.

She had to have a blood transfusion in 1970 after a bad car accident and she later contracted hepatitis from it. Years later she would undergo a liver transplant surgery as a result. She began working in porn films in approximately 1970 around that same time when she was about twenty years old. Some of those early film loops were "Sex for Sale," "Peeverted," "Knothole" and "Gomorrahy" most of which were released in 1971 and have no film credits for her. She married a man by the name of Chuck Traynor in 1971 and in fact she claimed later that he was very controlling and even abusive. She alleged that it was he who forced her to move back to New York where he became more of a pimp to her than a husband or manager.

In 1972 Linda Lovelace appeared in the x-rated film "Deep Throat" which was produced by Arrow Productions and directed by Gerard Damiano. She performed in seven of the movie's eleven scenes. This film was the first of it's kind in many respects and one of those was the fact that it received a lot of mainstream media attention. It was even reviewed in The New York Times. The film was played several times a day, every day for nearly ten years at the Pussycat Theater chain. Lovelace even made promotional appearances for the theater chain including printing her hands and feet in cement outside of their Hollywood, California location. The movie became a cult classic and was awarded as such in 2005 by AVN who gave it an honorary Five Porn Cult Classics award.

Lovelace herself alleged that there were several problems about the movie that would basically define her legacy long afterwards. For one, she was reportedly paid $1250.00 for her performance and never made any royalties from the film which is said to have grossed over 600 million dollars worldwide since it's release. She made stunning claims about her personal relationship and relationship on set with her husband. Her claim that he literally held a gun to her head during the scenes was strongly rebuffed by the film's director who was present for every scene. Contemporaries of hers allegedly said that she was often on drugs and was a "sexual superfreak" who would never take personal responsibility for the things that she did, but would instead blame pornography for all of her problems. She would go on to write the book "Ordeal" which is highly critical of the adult film industry.

In 1975 she left her husband and began a relationship with David Winters who had produced her in the film "Linda Lovelace for President." The movie was not a success and her attempt to make it as a legitimate film actress was short lived. She claimed at times that the film used cut scenes from "Deep Throat" but would dispute that same claim at other times. It was around this time that she allegedly took to smoking large amounts of marijuana and taking painkillers. After she had begun a family she finally quit from the porn business. She wrote two pro-adult industry biographies called "Inside Linda Lovelace" and "The Intimate Diary of Linda Lovelace."

Her second marriage was to Larry Marchiano who was a cable installer when they met. He later would own a drywall business and the couple had two offspring. The couple were living in New York state still when she had to have her liver transplant. Around 1990 his business went bankrupt and the family moved to Colorado. The couple divorced in 1996 and in a production called "The Other Hollywood" she claimed he had been an alcoholic and sometimes abusive. However the couple separated in a civil fashion and remained in contact for the rest of her life. In the same piece, Lovelace said that she not only felt that she was used by the porn industry, but that she was equally used by the anti-porn movement. She claimed that when she made "Deep Throat" her husband took all of her paycheck, and when she did speaking engagements for anti-porn rallies they would just give her pocket money even though she always felt they made a lot more money from using her name.

On April 3, 2002 Linda Lovelace was involved in a serious car crash with another vehicle and suffered a lot of internal injuries and trauma. On April 22 her family removed her from life support and she died at the age of 53 in the Denver, Colorado hospital where she was being treated. She was surrounded by her family and was laid to rest at a cemetery in Parker, Colorado.
