Famed adult film star Marilyn Chambers was found dead in her home in the Canyon Country area, authorities said Monday, and an autopsy was pending to determine how she died.

The 56-year old broke into the porn industry by appearing in the 1972 film “Behind the Green Door,” the first widely released pornographic film in the United States.

Her appearance in the film cost the then-aspiring model and actress her job as Procter & Gamble’s Ivory Snow¬†detergent girl, appearing on the soapbox with a baby and the caption “99 & 44/100% pure.”

The Providence, R.I., native had a bit part in the 1970 Barbra Streisand film “The Owl and the Pussycat,” but after establishing herself as a pornographic film star, she was never able to break into mainstream films.
