It also happened to a girl in a high profile University (not giving too much details for her privacy). She acted in adult movies during her studies. She has been identified by other university students and then had to abandon her studies, change city, etc. 

There are still traces of her online with the two contexts collapsed: the university, and the movie. The network makes a lot easier to collapse contexts (aka the opacity of our lives, aka one may have many different contexts).
