Exclusive Interview: Sunny Leone

sunny-leone

Tell me how things have been going and what you’ve been up to lately!

I just got home from being on the road for several weeks so I’m really glad to be home. I’ve been shooting a lot. We just shot Sunny Loves Matt for Vivid.

That’s big news for you because it’s your first boy/girl scene, right?

Yes it is.

You’ve been a Vivid girl for over two years. Was it harder at first to be a contract girl and only do girl/girl scenes?

It was a lot easier because I got to move at my own pace and Vivid is such a great company. They let me do girl/girl for the past couple of years and that doesn’t really happen a lot with the big adult companies. I’m very fortunate. I slowly progressed into doing boy/girl. Vivid never pressured me at all. They let me do what I wanted. I walked in and said, “This is what I want to do now,” and they were very excited.

I remember reading a couple of years ago where you said you’d never do a hardcore boy/girl scene. What changed between then and now?

The last movie that I made with Vivid helped out a lot. I was in a scene with a guy and another girl and it was so hot and sexy that I wanted to jump in! That was a major turning point. I started thinking about it some more and thinking about the terms I would want and how I wanted to do it. I didn’t stop thinking about it for a long time. I’m very sure about it and very confident in my decision.

What originally kept you from doing boy/girl scenes?

I just wasn’t comfortable yet. I needed to see it. That’s the nice thing about this industry. Some girls can move at the pace they want. I’ve always believed in taking things very slowly. I didn’t really know what I was getting in to. I’d never done that before. That was a huge deal for me when I signed on as a Vivid girl!

Being a Vivid girl is a great compliment and a huge advantage in this industry.

Sure. I’m very honored to be a Vivid girl. It’s exciting and they always have great things going on. I’m really excited to be a part of it.

You shot Sunny Loves Matt last month, right?

Yes. I’m in three major scenes – one’s a boy/girl, one’s a boy/girl/girl and one’s a girl/girl.

You sound like you were anxious to start doing boy/girl scenes. What was that day on set for your first boy/girl scene like? Were you excited, nervous?

Everything! It’s a huge decision as far as my career goes. I’d never done this before. How’s it going to go? How will it turn out? Will it be pretty? The first thing girls think about it is if it’s going to look pretty and how the lighting looks! I was nervous. Did I make the right decision for my career? You don’t know until the movie comes out and you see how it does. I think it’s going to do really well. This is definitely taking me to the next level. I don’t exactly know what’s going to happen because all that’s out there right now is the buzz. The movie will be out in early 2008.

You were a Penthouse Pet in 2001. Was that you first taste of adult?

I shot that when I was 19. I had no idea what it meant to be a Penthouse Pet until the magazine came out and it was in my hands. Penthouse started sending me out on promotions and I couldn’t believe people wanted an autograph from me. I didn’t get it but it soon started making sense. You don’t realize the magnitude of the company until you are actually there. Winning Pet of the Year was icing on the cake.

How did you graduate from Penthouse into adult?

As far as making a choice from being a glamour girl to working with Vivid, I’d always wanted to work with girls. Why not just ask them? The worst they could do is say no, right? I emailed their tech guy with a photo and a stat sheet and it went from there. The next day Steve Hirsch wanted to have a meeting. It happened rather quickly. We hit it off right from the get go. I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

Since Vivid knew your limitations of doing only girl/girl scenes in the beginning, what limitations do you have now?

My horizons are open. I know there’s a certain level I’d like to stick with. We did a girl/girl/boy scene and we did a boy/girl scene. It was really, really hot and sexy. I don’t know exactly what I’d say yes and no to. I’m doing the basics. I won’t stick anything in my pee-pee and one in my other hole, too! I’m not sure what kind of craziness will come my way except doing boy/girl because it’s still new.

A lot of fans know you from the mainstream stuff you’ve done on the E! Network and VH1. Fans really love the movie “Busty Cops” and I know you got to work with Jesse Jane on it. What did you think of that movie?

It was a lot of fun. We had a great time shooting it. That was one of the first things that Jesse did. She was just getting into the industry and she did Hawaiian Tropics and all this other stuff. She was brand spankin’ new and it was really nice knowing her from the beginning. That movie was a lot of fun and we laughed all day long.

When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wasn’t sure. After I graduated high school I wanted to be a nurse. I always said I wanted to own my own business and do my own thing, though. I just didn’t know what it would be. I was very confused!

I guess with your career now it’s kind of like owning your own business and you’re the product.

I’ve worked very hard over the last two years building my career and my company.

Thanks for taking time for this today! What would you like to say to your fans?

I can’t wait to see you at my appearances. You can see me at SunnyLeone.com and I have a new site called SunnysGirlfriends.com and you can always find me on Vivid.com.
