There are films that become scandalous even before they are released on the screen. One of them is the erotic historical drama "Caligula". The shooting of the film was financed by the owner of the magazine "Penthouse" Bob Guccione, and the director was the genius of the erotic genre Tinto Brass. The most memorable female role, Messalina, was played by American actress Anneka Di Lorenzo, who possessed stunning beauty and powerful sexual energy. (Careful! Nude).

The sponsor of the project, Bob Guccione, took an active part in the work on the film. When most of the material was filmed, he reviewed it and put forward a claim to Brass. The owner of a men's magazine wanted the film to have more explicit scenes. The director refused, and after the quarrel Guccione himself shot another 6 minutes of the hottest episodes. Anneka Di Lorenzo shone in all her naked glory in them. By the way, the sex in these scenes is not simulated, but real!

The real name of the actress is Marjorie Lee Thoreson. She was born in 1952 in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. The childhood of the future star was not easy — her parents drank and often quarreled. When Marge turned 13, the family broke up. The girl stayed with her mother. But vegetating in the province was not part of her plans, so at the age of 16 she ran away from home.

Marge settled in Los Angeles, where thousands of girls from all over the country flocked in search of money and happiness. Angel City was not too friendly to the girl and was in no hurry to realize her dreams. She had to work as a waitress and cleaner, and even dance in a strip club. Growing up in a dysfunctional family, Marge was not too scrupulous in finding money. Problems with the law began with her immediately after moving.

Lee Thoreson was arrested for car theft, forgery of bank checks, illegal possession of weapons. The girl walked on the very edge, but her young age always helped her out. She got off with several days of arrest or fines. At the same time, Marjorie understood that she would not be lucky forever and it was time to get on her feet. Moreover, she had a great start—up capital - a beautiful face and a great figure.

At 17, Marjorie Lee Thoreson came into the modeling business. Basically, she was filmed for erotic magazines, performing under different pseudonyms. In parallel, the girl participated in beauty contests to attract attention. And this tactic worked. In 1973, Bob Guccione noticed a curvaceous girl. It was he who insisted on changing his name to Anneka Di Lorenzo. The girl became a model of the "Penthouse" and popularity finally came to her.

Collaboration with Guccione brought the girl her first experience in cinema. However, these were episodic roles in low-budget thrillers and action films. And then the owner of the men's gloss offered her a role in the peplum "Caligula" at Tinto Brass. Anneka played Messalina, and it was not so much acting skills that were required of her, as the absence of complexes. The Penthouse model had no problems with this, and the beauty coped with her task perfectly.

Few people know that Anneka Di Lorenzo played Messalina twice. Almost simultaneously with "Caligula", another film was shot — the pseudo-historical comedy "Messalina, Messalina!". It used original sets commissioned by Tinto Brass and Bob Guccione.

The actress was predicted a brilliant career, but it did not work out. After the role of Messalina, Anneka starred only in the film "Razor" by Brian De Palma, where she played a nurse in the episode. Maybe everything would have been different, but the actress managed to quarrel with her patron Bob Guccione. She accused him of harassment and even won $4 million in compensation in court. But she never received the money, as she lost the appeal.

So Anneka Di Lorenzo was left without money, connections and roles. She managed to appear in only 6 films, of which only "Caligula" brought her fame. Having lost everything, the woman decided to start life from scratch. She became interested in fitness and yoga, becoming a popular instructor. Then Anneka got married and together with her husband opened a business in the beauty industry. The couple had a daughter, Jessica.

But the marriage turned out to be fragile and soon broke up. Along with him, the business that did not have time to get stronger also crumbled. After these events, Anneka disappeared from the field of view of fans and journalists. She moved with her daughter to live with her sister Susan Thoreson. The former model and actress led a secretive lifestyle and skillfully avoided paparazzi lenses. There were rumors that Di Lorenzo was suffering from a mental disorder, which resulted in persecution mania and unreasonable anxiety.
