MUMBAI, India — Adult and mainstream actress Sunny Leone continues her crossover juggernaut with a feature story in fashion bible ‘W’ magazine and a photo layout and cover in the Indian version of "Maxim" magazine.
The performer said “W” magazine flew from New York City to spend a week with her in India on the set of her newest film, "Jackpot."
"This was such an honor as its every women's dreams to have 'W Magazine' call them and ask to write a feature story and layout," Leone said.
The magazine’s article chronicled Leone’s porn and Bollywood film careers, pointing out how she’s handled her meteoric rise to fame in India and how she transcended what could have made her a pariah in the still sexually prudish country of her heritage.
“W” writes, “…Leone is all cool confidence, unfazed by the rather stark contrast between the kind of acting she did in Southern California and the kind she is doing in Bollywood — by the fact that she now delivers lines with her clothes on, and in Hindi. ‘For me, it’s all just entertainment,’ she says.”
The "W" story also comes with a photo slideshow of her, husband Daniel Weber and Vivid box cover.
Leone also nabbed the cover and feature with photo spread in the November issue of India’s "Maxim" magazine.
"I love Maxim as it allows me to push the limit in a mainstream magazine while wearing sexy designer clothing," Leone said.
Maxim’s interview followed a sexier path and asked Leone questions like “Does every woman want to be dominated?,” and “Is promiscuity a big deal? Or is it open threesome season?” Surprisingly, Leone answered candidly regarding the threesome question saying that although experimenting is fine, most women prefer being with one man.
Leone's latest Bollywood film "Jackpot" is set to release Dec. 13 worldwide. She is currently working on the film “Tina and Lolo” in India that she describes as “a cross between 'Thelma and Louise' and 'Kill Bill.'"
