LAS VEGAS, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Jenna Jameson, the adult film superstar and pop culture icon, was immortalized in wax today at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
Ms. Jameson, a Las Vegas native, unveiled her life-sized wax figure during a special ceremony at Madame Tussauds on the Las Vegas Strip. The partially nude, interactive figure portrays Ms. Jameson kneeling on a bearskin rug and displays all of her well-known tattoos. She also wears her original "Jenna" black leather belt with her name in rhinestones.
"This is an awesome honor," Ms. Jameson said after the unveiling, "especially since I'm making history as the first personality from the adult world to have an attraction at Madame Tussauds, and it is happening in Las Vegas, my hometown. I was so excited when asked to be part of Madame Tussauds incredible collection and even more excited to see my figure .... it looks so real!"
Like all Madame Tussauds interactive figures, visitors can pose for photographs with Ms. Jameson and when you tickle the tattoo on her right ankle, she whispers a personal message. Her attraction is displayed next to the one of Playboy Publishing founder Hugh Hefner, with whom she shares the same birth date, April 9.
Playboy Enterprises recently acquired Ms. Jameson's company, ClubJenna, Inc. She is the first adult film star to be immortalized by Madame Tussauds in its more than 200-year history.
"The adult entertainment business has become a multi-billion dollar industry. Jenna is the most famous adult film star in the world and is widely recognized for taking the adult genre into the mainstream media. It is that fame we are honoring today," said Adrian Jones, general manager of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
