“Little Joe” Dallesandro was first discovered at the Los Angeles bus station by an AMG (American Model Guild) scout. He is best known as one of Andy Warhol’s favorite muses. Dallesandro starred in several of Warhol’s films including “Flesh” (1968), “Trash” (1970), and “Heat” (1972). His film and television career continued through the 1980s. He was honored with a Teddy Award in 2009 for his contributions to the LGBTQ community.
