Linda Lovelace

Linda Susan Boreman (January 10, 1949 – April 22, 2002), more commonly referred to by her previous stage name Linda Lovelace, was an American pornographic actress famous for her performance in the 1972 hardcore porn film Deep Throat. Although the film was an enormous success at the time, it was later alleged that Boreman’s abusive husband, Chuck Traynor, had threatened and coerced her into performance. Boreman described what went on behind the scenes in her autobiography Ordeal. She later became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement.
