BiographyPorn Star Annette Haven was one of the first true porn superstars, a stunningly gorgeous creature with a wholesome, girl-next-door aura about her. Her fresh-scrubbed look made her the perfect choice for roles which called for an innocent, virginal young woman, and Annette Haven was the 70’s queen of such parts. Despite her seemingly naive facade, Annette Haven was a tenacious sexual performer who always left everything she had right there on the screen. Her long career in front of the cameras didn’t harden her, and she looked almost as bright and fresh in the mid-80’s as she had for her hardcore debut in Alex DeRenzy’s 1973 feature ‘Lady Freaks.’ Annette Haven had a strikingly pretty face, with deep brown eyes and a lusciously full mouth. Her body was more in the soft 70’s mold than the sculpted 90’s mode, with perfect medium-sized breasts and a delectable backside that was built to be put in motion.Annette Haven worked in a variety of jobs before getting into porn, serving as a nurse’s aid, massage parlor girl and exotic dancer. Once she got into the scene, she was known as a true professional and a class act. She was highly selective about the films she did and the performers she worked with, which resulted in a uniformly high-quality batch of features. Annette Haven starred in such XRCO Hall of Fame films as ‘Desires Within Young Girls’ and ‘Sex World,’ and was one of the first actresses elected to the group’s Performer Hall of Fame. She’s currently married and raising a family in up-scale Marin County, California.Annette Haven received the award in 1977 from the Adult Film Association of America for the movie ‘Coming of Angels’.

Did You Know

Retired from adult films in the late 1980s and lives in Mill Valley, California.
Inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame and the XRCO Hall of Fame.
Turned down the role of Marsha Quist in "The Howling" because she was opposed to the violent content of the script. The role eventually went to Elisabeth Brooks.
She and Melanie Griffith competed for the role of the porn star Holly Body in "Body Double", which Griffith won. Haven was devastated but she stayed on as technical advisor and trained Griffith for the film.

BiographyAnnette Haven (born 1 December 1954) is an American former pornographic actress popular during the 1970s and 1980s.
Haven was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and raised in a sexually conservative Mormon family. Haven later claimed that part of her reason for entering porn was that she wanted to show that "sex is not sinful" and could be pleasurable.
When she was 17 years-old, she married her boyfriend, and they were divorced two years later. Following the dissolution of her marriage, Haven moved to San Francisco, where she began dancing in erotic shows, and she eventually worked as a stripper. While working in one of the strip clubs, she met porn star Bonnie Holiday and moved in with her and her boyfriend.
She was introduced to the sex industry through a role in a film called Lady Freaks in 1973, starring Holiday. Annette Haven went on to work in nearly 100 porn movies. Haven had a mainstream acting role in Blake Edwards’s 10. She was considered to play the lead female role in Body Double, which eventually went to Melanie Griffith, and she became one of the director’s consultants for the film. Before filming Body Double, its director Brian De Palma commented, "I’m already thinking of casting. I don’t know if there’s any good young porno stars out here, but the older ones – Annette Haven, Seka – some of them can really act. And Annette Haven has a terrific body."
Annette Haven is a member of the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame.
