The adult film star was reportedly found dead in her home over the weekend.
Wired PR News – Adult film star Marilyn Chambers has passed away. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the cause of the 56-year-old “Behind the Green Door” star’s death was not yet known at the time of the report. Chambers was reportedly found in her home by her daughter, who is 17.
Chambers rose to fame in the 1970s after starring in a series of adult movies. She also garnered mass attention for posing on the Ivory Snow laundry detergent as a young mother with a wholesome appearance.
The actress is quoted as once stating of her decision to cross over from modeling and mainstream acting into an adult film career, “Back then in my naive brain I was thinking that something like ’Behind the Green Door’ had never been done before and the way our sexual revolution was traveling I really thought it was going to be a stepping stone which would further my acting career.”
