Born Jenna Marie Massoli on April 9, 1974 Jenna Jameson is an American adult movie actress and entrepreneur who has been called the world's most famous adult entertainment star. She started acting in erotic films in 1993 after having worked as a stripper and glamour model. By 1996, she had won the three top newcomer awards from the adult film industry organizations. She has since won more than 20 adult film awards, and has been inducted into both the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) and Adult Video News (AVN) Halls of Fame.
Jameson founded adult entertainment company Club Jenna in 2000, with Jay Grdina, whom she later married. This business was initially an individual website, which expanded into managing similar websites of other stars and began producing adult films in 2001. The first such film, Briana Loves Jenna (with Briana Banks), was named at the 2003 AVN Awards as the best-selling and best-renting adult title for 2002. By 2005, Club Jenna had revenues of US$30 million with profits estimated at half that. Advertisements for her site and films, often bearing her picture, tower on a forty-eight-foot-tall billboard in New York City's Times Square. Playboy TV hosts her Jenna's American Sex Star reality show where aspiring adult stars compete for a Club Jenna contract.
Jenna is also noted for her relative success in crossing over into mainstream celebrity, starting with a minor role in Howard Stern's 1997 film Private Parts. Her mainstream appearances continued with guest-hosting E! television, an award-winning voice role in the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and a recurring role on the 2003 NBC television series Mister Sterling. Her 2004 autobiography, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale, spent six weeks on The New York Times Best Seller list.
Jenna Playboy Interview
- Hollywood's Golden Age
The glamour, the style, the sex-appeal and the sheer razamatazz of an era which produced some great films, some great directors and some of the greatest stars ever to walk this earth.
A former dancer at the legendary Crazy Horse Too, the Las Vegas native segued to adult film, and was soon producing her movies through her own company, ClubJenna, Inc. Her first feature distributed by Vivid, Briana Loves Jenna, became the best selling and most rented release of 2001. Her conquest of Hollywood began with a role in Howard Stern's Private Parts and continued with a featured part in Comedy Central's Porn 'n Chicken and a recurring role on NBC's Mister Sterling. In 2004, she signed with Elite Model Management for fashion endorsements, and her 48-foot billboard still towers over Times Square. Jenna's 2004 autobiography became a New York Times best-seller. Online, clubjenna.com is one of the most visited sites on the Internet.
In addition to being the host of her very own reality show on The Playboy Channel called "Jenna's American Sex Star", Jenna frequently appears on the E! channel, VH-1 and many other mainstream shows. It seems that you do not have to look very hard if you want to catch a glimpse of this beautiful superstar.

Jenna and Relationships
In 1996, Jenna Jameson married porn star Brad Armstrong (n Rodney Hopkins). They separated after ten weeks. By this time Jenna had drawn the attention of Howard Stern, who cast her in Private Parts (1997). At the premiere of the movie, Jenna met singer Marilyn Manson, who she would later date. In 2000, she moved in with female porn star Nikki Tyler. Despite a willingness to work with females and even a few alleged lesbian relationships, Jenna Jameson has always maintained that she is heterosexual.
Jenna was at the top of her game in 2003, by this time both a household name and a mainstream commodity. She signed an exclusive 7-year deal with Vivid Entertainment Group (a company known for classy adult features with sexy women and storylines) to star in at least 15 films.
Seven years after separating from Brad Armstrong, Jenna finally obtained a divorce and married her boyfriend, studio owner Jay Grdina, in 2003.
In the world of porn, Jenna Jameson has come to define success. With over 80 movies on her resume, she's pitched in her fair share towards building this billion-dollar industry. While her exact net worth is unknown, her film career and own entertainment management company, ClubJenna, have certainly garnered her millions. But that's to be expected; after all, sex sells.
Jenna Trivia - Jenna a waxwork!
In 2004 Jenna was immortalised as a waxwork in Madame Tussauds.
The Las Vegas branch of the world famous museums unveiled a likeness of the X-rated actress, the star of such films as 'I Love Lesbians'and 'Jenna's Built For Speed'.
The partially naked model depicts 'Jenna'kneeling on a bearskin rug, and is so accurate it even features her tattoos, including the famous 'Heart Breaker'etching on her right buttock.
Visitors to the attraction will receive a sexy message from 'Jenna' if they tickle her tattoos.
When presented with the waxwork, the busty blonde was delighted, saying: "It looks so real!"
Jenna, who happily posed with the creation at its unveiling this week, is the first porn star to be made into a waxwork by Madame Tussauds.
Summary - her legacy
Since everyone is a star in the world of porn, it's hard say that Jenna Jameson stands out for her steamy onscreen sex (although she certainly does not disappoint in that department). Basically, she's become the public face of porn. Jenna Jameson is the top interview choice when the mainstream media (everyone from CNN to FOX) does a story on the multibillion-dollar industry. The 2004 publication of her book, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, legitimized Jenna even further.
There seems to be very little that can stop Jenna Jameson -- and that's okay with us. Unlike most porn starlets, she has mastered the art of the crossover. As a result, she's become more of a household name than virtually anyone else in porn today.

Jenna was recently in the news for filing assault charges against her husband who happens to be a Mixed Martial Arts fighter. I don't know his name but from the interveiw that showed a very emotional Jenna Jameson, it looks as though their marriage may be in jeopardy. Jenna business skills has been a model for other up and coming adult film stars.
