Biography

As the self-described "most downloaded person on the Internet," porn star Jenna Jameson has emerged from college dorm room stardom to become a household name. Contrary to popular belief, Jameson never used her profession as a stepping stone to mainstream acting or as a substitute for a career in entertainment gone bad. With the determination to become the most popular star in the industry, Jameson accomplished just that, becoming so famous that she wound up atop her own merchandising company with carte blanche to appear in any movie of her choosing-or none at all. Despite typifying the porn star cliché-she has been abused and was a drug addict-Jameson's unabashed biography, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale, has only complicated rather than simplified the argument that porn either exploits or empowers women.

Bonus Trivia

.

Jameson on what she would do if her daughter wanted to join the porn industry: "I'd tie her in the closet. Only because this is such a hard industry for a woman to get ahead and get the respect that she deserves. I fought tooth and nail to get to where I am, and it's not something that I would want my daughter to go through. It's not something that any parent would choose for their child." – Jameson to CNN.com, Aug. 28, 2004

.

Her web site was www.clubjenna.com.

.

Jameson revealed via Twitter in March 2010 that she lost three babies following surgery for an ectopic pregnancy. "Had surgery today for a double ectopic pregnancy. I also had a pregnancy in my uterus. This is so insane. I just wanted to get this off my chest."

.

Jameson pressed charges against Tito Ortiz on April 26, 2010 for felony domestic violence. Several hours after posting bail, Ortiz and his attorney accused Jameson of drug addiction and claimed Ortiz never struck her.
