Revealing Performers: Carol Connors, Dennis Parker, Heather Mills, Sharon Stone & Sylvestor Stallone.


     There are many famous mainstream people who at one point in their past have some sort of adult material. This does not make that person a bad person. It just means that was something they did to get by at the time and later moved on in life to better things, mainstream or a family.
<Wade Nichols is Dennis Parker! For example, Wade Nichols went from adult films to mainstream soap operas and is famous under aka: Dennis Parker for his song Fly Like An Eagle. Unfortunately, Wade past away with Aids/HIV 1985. Other famous people who had adult material in their past & fortunately did not have Aids/HIV are Carol Connors, Heather Mills, Sharon Stone, & Sylvestor Stallone.


<Carol Connors is a SURVIVOR. Carol Connors (aka: Carol Conners, Carol Birch) has 22 adult porn titles in which she is in, including: "Confessions of Linda Lovelace" and "Deep Throat" that Linda Lovelace is also in. Carol Connors left behind her porn career in the early 1980's for mainstream. Carol Connors appeared in several episodes of "The Gong Show" as a hostess. Carol was in the 1982 mainstream movie, "The Concrete Jungle," which also starred famous mainstream performers: Greg Finley, Peter Brown, Sondra Currie, Tracey Bregman & others. She played Carol Davies in the movie. Carol Connors was also in the mainstream series: "CHiPs" in 1982 and played a woman driver. In 1986 was in the mainstream movie, "Electric Blue 38," and played Tammy's mother. Who else was in 1986's "Electric Blue 38," a mainstream movie? Samantha Fox, Tami Lee Curtis, Amber Lynn (pornstar), Rick Savage (pornstar) & others. This just goes to show you that porn performers are actors or actresses and do cross over to mainstream. Jack Birch was in porn with Carol in their earlier days, including in 1972's "Deep Throat," 1978's "Sweet Savage," and 1979's "Candy Goes To Hollywood." Carol Connors married Jack Birch. Their daughter Thora had a very prosperous career as a thriving mainstream actress. Their daughter was born the same year the movie "The Concrete Jungle" came out.
<Heather Mills was born 1968 in England. She is the former wife of Sir Paul McCartney of the band: the Beatles. When she was younger, her parents divorced, even though she had a home she ran away as a teenager, hung out with a caravan at a fair, found herself homeless for a short while, and in 1988 took a photoshoot that involved simulated intimate acts (softcore by porn standards) with model Peter Wilson. You see so much softcore intimacy in fashion magazines, on TV and R-Rated movies nowadays, you would think people would not have made a big deal out of it, especially since it was when she was much younger and not during when she was married. The 1988 book published in Germany that the photos came out in was called "Die Freuden der Liebe (The Joys Of Love)" or published in America called "S-x Games." In 1993 she was hit by a police motorcycle as she was a pedestrian crossing the road near London's Kensington Palace (crushed ribs, punctured lung, metal plate in her pelvis, & amputation of her left leg below the knee). My goodness, she's suffered enough! She made $250,000 after having sold her story to reporters while in the hospital. Heather met Paul McCartney, and it was like a fairytale romance, Cinderella meeting her Prince. She was later married to Paul McCartney from 2002-2006. During that time the couple had a daughter. It's sad to see a family break up, but Heather will always be the mother of Paul McCartney's daughter... and that is respected. I just don't think she had the willpower and strength to hold her family together with all the media publicity that this book brought about after having been in such a tragic accident previously in 1993. During Heather's marriage to Paul she became a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Association 2002, 2005 attended Charity Evening for Aid of Breast Cancer and PETA's 25th Anniversary Gala & Humanitarian Awards Show. Paul McCartney went on the Jay Leno Show. After Heather Mills & Paul McCartney's divorce, she continued to contribute to society by attending 2007's Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation Gala.


<Sharon Stone (aka: Sharon Vonne Stone) scored an IQ of 154 in high school and earned a scholarship to Pennsylvania's Edinboro University when she was 15 years old, studied creative writing and fine arts. She entered the county beauty pageant and won the title of Miss Crawford County in Meadville. She then pursued mainstream modeling with the Eileen Ford agency and modelled for Dior, Esquire, & various fashion magazines, plus appeared in TV commercials for Burger King, Clairol, Maybelline, Revlon, and Diet Coke. She then went onto acting in films like 1985's "Allan Quatermain And The Lost City Of Gold" and 1988's "Tears In The Rain." Sharon Stone was on the cover & was photographed by Stephen Wayda in the following adult Playboy Magazine issue: July 1990, page 118 "Dishing With Sharon" -pictorial. She was a teaze in R-Rated 1992's "Basic Instinct" flashing her vag-na in a scene, and in R-Rated 2006's "Basic Instinct 2" she displayed nud-ty, going beyond culturally specific boundaries regarding appropriate modesty in clothing. When "Basic Instinct 2" was originally filmed there was an org- scene, which was cut out of the U.S. release in order to maintain an R-Rating for censorship in cinematic film, but in the UK version of the film the org- scene remains in the film. She was also in box office mainstream movies such as: "Total Recall" with Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1993's "Sliver" in which she plays a seductress roll & simulates mast-rbation, Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. 1994's Drama "The Specialist" with Sylvestor Stallone, 1998's Science Fiction thriller "Sphere" & "The Muse." Sharon had at least 3 Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture & 1 Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role, an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, and an Emmy in 2004 for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series ("The Practice"). She was definately a s-x symbol in her days of modern mainstream, a talented and intelligent actress who was also seductively beautiful.
After 1990's "Total Recall" was released, Sharon had been in a car accident on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles, didn't get medical attention right away, and woke up completely paralyzed on the floor for three whole days. When she finally got to the hospital she was diagnosed with a concussion, dislocated shoulder and jaw, several broken ribs, and three compressed discs in her back... left with visible scars. Then in Sept. 2001 she had a relapse and suffered a vertebral artery dissection which caused a subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding around the brain membrane), was treated for it, and made a complete recovery. You cannot expect any person to look beautiful after such a tragedy (as if you notice any not so pretty photos of Sharon floating around the internet that would definately explain it), but Sharon Stone did not let this tragic event get in the way of pursueing her career as a mainstream actress. Beauty comes from more than just looks. She did not let the car accident get in the way of her inner beauty. In 1999, Sharon Stone had considered legal action against an internet porn site that entices users to see nude photos of famous stars and was using her name, according to the Chicago Tribune. (I'm really proud of her for that, but I wish more stars would have stepped forward to do something about websites that are hardly legit. Some adult sites are legit and follow standard rules, but there are so many out there that don't... it's ashame. At this point in history I was still recovering from a tragic car accident I had been in also.) In 2004 Sharon Stone attended the Cinema Against AIDS Cannes Benefit. In 2005 she wrote and recorded the song "Come Together Now" to help raise money for Hurricane Katrina relief. In 2005 Sharon also attended the 7th Annual White Tie & Tiara Ball to benefit the Elton John Aids Foundation. Since this is a documentary about "Aids Awareness" I figure it's important that you know that performers have expressed their concerns about Aids.



<Sylvestor Stallone was in the softcore porn "Party At Kitty And Studs" (aka: "The Italian Stallion"), but I've always thought of Stallone from "Rocky" and "Rambo." I like comedies, so I really enjoyed "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot." Who cares what he did when he was younger in order to survive as long as what he did was not harmful to others, especially not to his own health and well-being at that time. He moved on in life to better things, and that's what counts. No matter about the adult film, he's still always going to be an American icon. Sylvestor Stallone was in mainstream 1976's Rocky. Sylvestor Stallone (aka: Sly Stallone; Sylvestor Gardenzio Stallone) was a Roman Catholic who attended school in Philadelphia where he first started acting, spent two years instructing at the American College of Switzerland in Geneva, then enrolled as a drama major at the University of Miami and began to pursue writing. He went to New York to audition for almost every casting agent in town with little success. He had his first acting roll in 1970's adult softcore porno film called "Party At Kitty And Stud's" in which he received $200 for with no royalties nor gratuities. He had a roll in the nude play "Score." He took odd jobs, including cinema usher & writing various screenplays... whatever he could get to survive. He went on to get better rolls in mainstream, including Woody Allen's "Bananas" and did several other rolls in mainstream films. He then went onto Hollywood. At one point his bank balance was barely $100. When he performed in 1976's "Rocky" he made his career as a mainstream moviestar, and this movie won three Oscars, including the Academy Award in 1976 for Best Picture. The porn film "Party At Kitty And Stud's" was re-released as softc-re porn titled "The Italian Stallion" after Sylvestor Stallone was famous, as a marketting strategy to capitalize on Sylvestor's celebrity fame.
     He went on to do box office mainstream movies such as: "Cannonball," "Nighthawks," "First Blood," "Rambo, First Blood Part II," "Cobra" distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, "Tango & Cash" distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot," "Cliffhanger," "The Specialist" distributed by Warner Home Video, "Cop Land," and "Driven" distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. There's a huge difference in what famous porno performers earn in comparison to what famous mainstream performers earn. Stallone received $15 to $20 million for each of his mainstream movies, which is much better than $200 dollars for porno. Stallone was a Winner of the People's Choice Award for Favourite Motion Picture Actor, was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the USA Academy of Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Films, & was winner of Action Movie Star Award 2005. He once sued a British magazine, The Spectator, for publishing an article which suggested he "ducked the Vietnam War," and the suit was settled under undisclosed terms. He is also one of the founding partners with Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in Planet Hollywood, an international chain. Sylvestor was a volunteer 2001 for A Tribute to Heroes Benefit by helping out on the telethon's phonelines. Films are films, and it's all part of acting. The problem with pornography is that when you leave the set you have to worry about if you go home with more than you came with. When you leave the mainstream set you go home to your real life with your family, without worry of health risks. Sylvestor went to watch "Shrek2" at the Los Angeles Premiere in 2004 with his wife Jennifer Flavin and their kids. Performers can have a family too, just like everyone else, and that is part of life's fulfillment.
