Belladonna gives the crowd a big smile

Tonight, at the Hustler Hollywood’s flagship store, located on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, CA, the adult industry paid tribute to two beloved stars.

Legendary producer/director and former performer John Stagliano and super adult star Belladonna were inducted into the Hustler Walk of Fame, amidst an exclusive gathering of industry dignitaries and personalities, fans and media. It was a proud occasion for Evil Angel, the company founded by Stagliano and where Belladonna has been a performer/director and a longtime favorite of fans.

Guests enjoyed champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, prior to watching as Stagliano and Belladonna put their handprints into wet cement blocks, which will be placed in the walkway in front of the store, alongside the legends that have already been honored there.

Among the guests last night were three other Walk of Famers: performer Eric Edwards (whose career spanned the ’60s to ’00s), performer and industry historian Bill Margold, and blonde bombshell Sunset Thomas. Other industry personalities present included Karen Stagliano, director Eli Cross, director Jules Jordan, performer Tera Reign, Hustler President Michael Klein, attorney Paul Cambria, Evil Angel General Manger and FSC Board member Christian Mann, performer Mr. Marcus, and FSC Membership/Communications Director Joanne Cachapero, among others.

Free speech icon Larry Flynt was there to conducted the ceremony with help from his daughter, Hustler Hollywood founder Theresa Flynt. Speaking briefly to those gathered, Theresa said the adult industry is “a big family, and this is how we celebrate.”

Stagliano, who went through a much publicized obscenity trial in 2010, spoke after making his handprints and acknowledged Flynt’s pioneering obscenity battles. Both men have been on the front lines for First Amendment rights and are strong advocates for free speech.
