Annette Haven is labeled as one of the first real stars of the porn industry. She brought a fresh and innocent girl-next-door look, while still being one of the most dazzling ladies to appear in hardcore at the time. She had wonderfully shaped, just-the-right-size breasts that balanced out well with oh-so-sweet ass. Annette was raised as a Mormon, later rebelling against her upbringing by creating a strong female character for the screen. She was hailed as a role model for porn actresses and everyday women, but also labeled a bitch for her approach to the business.
Annette worked as a nurse’s aid, exotic dancer, and massage therapist before getting into porn. She was known to always be extremely professional and classy. Annette was very selective about which roles she would take as well as who she would work with. Her tenacious work habits led to the higher standard for the films that she appeared in. Annette made her first hardcore performance in 1973 with ‘Lady Freaks’; she was often put into roles where she played the innocent virgin or confident executive. An intelligent actress with the ability to play a range of roles, Annette was hoping to change the way Americans thought about sex. Annette found herself getting more roles as professional women that were secure in their sexuality. The only disappointment this seductive lady of the screen ever brought was her refusal to receive facial cumshots for her films.
Annette became one of the first actresses elected to the group’s Performer Hall of Fame for X-Rated Critics’ Organization. She also received a Best Supporting Actress award for Adult Film Association of America in 1977 for her work in ‘Coming of Angels’. She has starred in a couple features that have gone down into the hall of fame as well including ‘Sex World’. Since retiring Annette has started a family and settled down in the ritzy Marin County, California.
