(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Stunning brunette model and Penthouse Pet of the Year Sunny Leone has become a Vivid Girl and will make adult movies exclusively for the Vivid Entertainment Group.
Ms. Leone, 23, is the first performer of Indian descent (her parents were born in the Indian state of Punjab) to become a Vivid Girl. Her first movie will be titled "Sunny" and will be released in the fourth quarter of this year.
The Canadian-born Ms. Leone moved to the United States as a teenager and has been doing adult modeling for the past five years.
"I wanted to sign with a company that would really help me advance, so I chose Vivid to help me take this big step in my life because you only get one chance to make a debut," says Ms. Leone. "For the past six months I've been working on my website, SunnyLeone.com, and I've come to realize that it's time for me to start acting."
It is unusual for a woman of Indian background to enter the adult field and Ms. Leone's choice of profession has intrigued mainstream media. She has been interviewed by Jane magazine for an upcoming story about being Indian and in the adult business, which she entered at age 18. She has done extensive media work as Penthouse Pet of the Year and worked as an interviewer on E!'s Wild On, has introduced other adult industry performers in a VH1 program and was a red carpet reporter for the "After Dark" program coverage of the Sundance Film Festival among other TV appearances.
The 5'4", 110-pound beauty has measurements of 34-24-34 and an established fan base. As a young girl, she was very athletic and played street hockey with the boys. She currently plays on a women's soccer league team in California whenever she has a moment. Also likes to ride horseback English style and is a fan of opera, rap music and both Italian and Indian food.
