Queen Of Clown Porn Star Hollie Stevens Dies

The “Queen of Clown Porn” Hollie Stevens dies in a San Francisco hospital holding the hand of her husband, a month after their wedding, after a battle with breast cancer.

She had put off having a lump checked as she had no health insurance, but was diagnosed with breast cancer last Spring and had her left breast removed.

“I noticed it and paid attention to it, but going to the doctor is hard when you don’t have insurance,” she had said.

Soon after, the cancer had spread to her bones, liver and brain.

Stevens, 30, had performed in more than 170 films and was nominated for industry awards. She was also a pioneer of the niche genre, clown porn. But before her death, she said she hoped to be remembered as a good wife and friend rather than for her professional accomplishments.

“I hope people know I’m always myself. I take pride in what others think may be weird about me!” she said in a public statement. “I’d also want people to know what I love most, what makes me happy, is being a friend and a wife. That’s what I would want them to know and remember.”

She was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer after undergoing several months of chemotherapy.

Her friends, family and fans rallied around her, raising $16,000 for her medical bills.

But in December 2011, the cancer was found to have spread to her bones. In March, a spot was identified in the actor’s leg, and she underwent an operation in an attempt to strengthen her leg and hip. Cancerous cells were also found in her liver, and several new tumours were discovered on and near the initial site.

As well as working as a porn star, comedian and actress, Stevens also enjoyed painting and exhibited works in the Hyena Gallery in Burbank, California.
