Sunny Leone is the first performer of Indian descent to become a Vivid Girl. Her first movie, "Sunny," was released late in 2005. Canadian born, she moved to the United States as a teenager and has been doing adult modeling as well as XXX movies since. "I wanted to sign with a company that would really help me advance within the industry, so I chose Vivid to help me take that big step in my life. You only get one chance to make a debut," says Ms. Leone. "Prior to taking this step, I was working on my website and had come to realize that it was time for me to start acting." While it may be unusual for a woman of Indian background to enter the adult field, Sunny Leone's choice of profession has intrigued the mainstream media. She was interviewed by Jane magazine for a 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 has worked as an interviewer for E!'s Wild On. Sunny Leone has introduced other adult industry performers in VH1 programs and has been a red carpet reporter for the "After Dark" program coverage of the Sundance Film Festival. Sunny Leone's breakthrough role came in "Sunny Loves Matt," in 2007 where she shed her women-only rule in videos by appearing with then fiance, Matt Erickson. In 2008, Sunny Leone starred in "The Other Side of Sunny" where she was again with Erickson and also with XXX stud Tommy Gunn.
