Maitland Ward Became a Porn Superstar and Was Shunned by Hollywood

I was leaving Whole Foods with a sack of veggies on my hip as Elizabeth Berkley was canoodling with a man.

It was more noodle than passion, with a "can" added to the front for encouragement. I detest the name "canoodling," but that's what it was.

She backed away from the man, her face turning red as she saw me, a woman with a bun on her head fucking men on camera who had dicks as huge as the zucchinis sticking out of the bag of veggies.

Elizabeth kept her eyes on me the entire time she spoke, playing it as coolly as when her Saved by the Bell character once hid her No-Doze addiction.

He waved at the astonished girl who had previously intended for Showgirls to shock the world as his mouth slackened.

Having seen those eyes previously, I immediately understood what was happening. You don't see a Disney princess turned porn actress lugging produce every day.

Growing away from a family-sitcom image is not an easy feat, especially when that image is consistently promoted on afternoon repeats.

People will pit your life against the persona you played when you were practically a child, whether they are aware of it or not.
