Porn Star Veronica Hart blew in and out of the adult film industry like a sexual hurricane, only staying around for a few years before leaving as quickly as she’d appeared. She definitely made her mark, though. Veronica Hart was a erotic-looking brunette with a trim figure, piercing dark eyes and a lusty sneer that seemed to dare men to take her on. She had charisma to spare and a screen presence unmatched by her contemporaries — it was impossible not to focus on her whenever she was on screen. Veronica Hart’s acting ability was well above the usual porn standard, and she could take on a variety of roles with skill and believability. Her hottest quality was her obvious love for and enthusiasm for raw, wild sex. It was evident whether she was matched up with men or women, as Veronica Hart let loose with uncontrollable passion on her lucky partners.Veronica Hart’s brief stay in porn ended in 1984, but she left behind a surprising number of films that attest to her red-hot screen persona. 1983 was the high-water mark of Veronica Hart’ carnal career, as she won Best Actress honors for ‘Roommates’ and Best Supporting Actress for ‘Foxtrot.’ She was inducted into the XRCO Performers Hall of Fame despite her short stay in the field — a real testament to the impact that Veronica Hart had on the industry. A charming woman and a steamy sexer, Veronica Hart’s name still raises pulses in fans of erotic entertainment.Veronica Hart received the award in 1981 from the Adult Film Association of America for the movie ‘Amanda By Night’.She received the award in 1982 from the Adult Film Association of America for the movie ‘Roommates’.She received the award in 1982 from the Critics’ Adult Film Awards for the movie ‘Roommates’.Veronica Hart received the award in 1982 from the Adult Film Association of America for the movie ‘Foxtrot.’.
