Jane Esther Hamilton (born October 27, 1956) is an American former pornographic film actress and current pornographic film director who performed under the stage name Veronica Hart[1] during the 1980s. She is sometimes credited as Jane Hamilton, V. Hart, Veronica Heart, Victoria Holt, Kathryn Stanleigh, Randee Styles or just Veronica. Hart is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame.[3][4]

Career[edit]

Hart appeared in pornographic films from 1980 until 1984 and is best known for her performances in Amanda by Night, Wanda Whips Wall Street, Roommates and A Scent of Heather. In the 2000s and 2010s she directs, edits, and produces pornographic films, while making occasional (non-sexual) cameos in both mainstream and adult productions.[5]

With the sale of VCA, her primary production company, to Hustler in 2003,[6] Hart moved on to other work.[7] Including working as a tour guide at the now closed Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas.

Appearances[edit]

Hart portrays a judge in the film Boogie Nights (1997), appearing in the scene where the characters of Amber and her husband are arguing during a hearing about their son. She would later appear in another Paul Thomas Anderson movie, Magnolia.[5]

Other ventures[edit]

As of 2014 Hart had become a sex educator in China. An article in AVN magazine stated that she has been instructing women through an arrangement with a chain of adult retail stores and clubs called Sediva Maison.[7]
