She has now largely retired from acting, and concentrates on photography and business ventures. On April 23, 2002 she was taken off life support and died in Denver, Colorado. Her beauty brought her to the attention of Hollywood, making her first "American" film in 1954, following which she was cast in a series of light romantic comedies considered minor by some. On April 3, 2002, she sustained severe injuries in a car accident in which her sport utility vehicle rolled over. (They had one son, and were divorced in 1971). Boreman testified before congressional committees investigating pornography and also gave lectures on college campuses and elsewhere, always decrying what she described as callous and exploitative practices of the pornography industry. In 1949 she married a Yugoslavian physician, Milko Skofic. According to Boreman's 1980 autobiography Ordeal, the couple's relationship was plagued by violence, rape, prostitution and, of course, pornography.
She began appearing in Italian language films. Traynor went on to marry and guide the career of Marilyn Chambers, another major porn star. She was born Luigina Lollobrigida at Subiaco near Rome, and became a fashion model and beauty contestant. For many years after the film debuted, Boreman claimed that her husband, whom she divorced in 1973, had forced her into pornography at gunpoint and that in Deep Throat itself bruises from his beatings can be seen on her legs. Gina Lollobridiga (born 4 July 1927) is an Italian actress. However, several 8 mm "fetish" loops that still circulate confirm the assertions. Over the years she was sometimes accused of having made zoophilia pornography before Deep Throat, a charge that she always denied.
Boreman maintained that she herself was not paid for her work in Deep Throat and that her husband, Chuck Traynor, received only $1,250 (1972 US dollars) for it even though the film would eventually gross an estimated $600 million. After becoming famous she starred in several soft core movies, which were flops. The daughter of a policeman, Boreman made several hard core short features before making Deep Throat, perhaps the most financially successful porn movie ever. She later became an advocate against pornography and insisted on using the name Boreman.
Linda Boreman (January 10, 1949 - April 23, 2002) became famous as a pornographic actress under the stage name Linda Lovelace in the 1972 film Deep Throat.
