Life for Jenna Jameson as a teenager was tough. Her family was deeply in debt, which made things hard on the family. For a while, Jameson could stay distracted by her talents as a ballerina (a talent she frequently won contests with), but she eventually stopped practicing the dancing.
As a teenager, Jenna Jameson also began using drugs, which made her life even more difficult and complicated. She ended up moving out of her family’s home when she was only 16 years old so she could live with her boyfriend.
When Jenna Jameson was only 17, she made a fake ID for herself so she could take up a job as an exotic dancer at a local establishment. While there, she was spotted by a Penthouse scout. Soon after this, Jameson moved off of the stage and in front of the camera.
Jenna Jameson began her adult film career in 1993, and her first video was released shortly afterward. It was around this time that she started to use the name, Jenna Jameson, as she thought there was something risque and attractive about the name Jameson. Throughout most of the 1990’s, she appeared exclusively in pornos. However, she did appear in the film Private Parts, which was a biopic about Howard Stern. Some of her famous films from this decade include Cherry Pie; I Love Lesbians, Photoplay, The Kiss, Paradise, Jenna’s Revenge, The F-Zone, and Flashpoint X.
