VAN NUYS, Calif. — Digital Playground contract star Riley Steele's mainstream profile is steadily increasing with her recent feature film debut in "Piranha 3D" last weekend. This week Steele has become the highest rated adult star on IMDb's STARmeter rankings as she has entered the top 250.

Since "Piranha" hit theaters, Steele has been fielding interview requests from all over the world, Digital Playground said. The San Diego native will turn 23 on Thursday.

"I couldn't ask for a better birthday present," she said. "I love my job and my life right now!"

"We are so proud of Riley for all of her hard work and determination," Digital Playground CEO Samantha Lewis said. "She's earned every bit of this notoriety."

The STARmeter and MOVIEmeter are rankings of every person and title in IMDb. The charts provide industry professionals with insights into the popularity of film and television productions as well as the people who make them. The date is based on the actual behavior of millions of IMDb users, meaning there is a high level of public awareness and/or interest in the title or person.

According to the site, IMDbPro uses proprietary algorithms that take into account several measures of popularity for people and titles. The primary measure is who and what people are looking at on the public IMDb.com website.The rankings are updated on a weekly basis.

Steele last week talked to XBIZ about her experience attending the world premiere of the movie. Click here for the full report.
