As one of few porn stars with roots in India, Sunny Leone really stands out. Born in Sarnia, Canada on May 13, 1981 she was very athletic as a child and attended a Catholic school. This former nursing student got a taste for the industry when she posed for Penthouse in 2001 and was named Pet of the Month in March of that year. Sunny also appeared in Hustler and Swank magazine and in 2003 she starred alongside Tera Patrick in the video Penthouse Pets in Paradise. In 2005 Sunny made the transition to hardcore and signed a 3-year contract with Vivid saying she would do only girl-on-girl scenes.
