Linda Lovelace Goes From 'Deep Throat' Star To Buttoned-Up Feminist (PHOTOS)

01/10/2013 11:24 am ET

Linda Lovelace may just be one of the most notorious names in film. Anyone remember a little movie called "Deep Throat"? Yah, that's what we thought.

Strangely enough, the iconic adult film star had pretty conservative beginnings. Born in the Bronx, New York, Linda Susan Boreman attended Catholic school where she earned the nickname "Miss Holy Holy," a nod to her demure attitude towards the opposite sex. Soon after high school, however, she married Chuck Traynor and her life completely changed directions.

Linda's ensuing porn career and drug-laden lifestyle has become a controversial topic, since she later became a spokeswoman for the feminist anti-pornography movement and claimed she was abused and coerced into performing. In 1976, after marrying her second husband Larry Marchiano and having two children, she left the industry and settled into a quieter life in Colorado until she died in a car accident in April 2002 at the age of 53.

With two Hollywood biopics in the works, there's been a renewed interest in the woman who grabbed the world's attention back in 1972. Here, in honor of Linda Lovelace's birthday on Jan. 10, we take a look back at Linda's sense of style throughout the years.
