VAN NUYS, Calif.—Digital Playground contract star Riley Steele is the latest adult star to seduce the mainstream media. The blonde beauty is featured on the cover of horror entertainment magazine Gorezone and has ignited a media firestorm with her Sapphic kiss in the upcoming motion picture, Piranha 3D.
In addition to her cover slot, Steele is featured in a seven-page pictorial and interview in the October issue of Gorezone, a magazine that’s billed as “Vogue for horror fans.”
“Riley Steele is the perfect ‘Goremate’—sexy, intelligent and has a great set of lungs,” said Bryn Hammond, editor of GZ Magazine. “The Riley Steele pictorial will make grown men explode with both excitement and interest.”
Steele is stoked to be on the cover of the U.K. publication with an excess of 200,000 copies.
“I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am,” Steele said. “I mean to be on the cover of a magazine that has stars like Johnny Depp and Brittany Murphy is a dream come true.”
In other Steele news, like songbird Katy Perry, she kissed a girl and she liked it—and the press can’t get enough of it. In this case, Steele locks lips with U.K. model/actresses Kelly Brook and Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr in Piranha 3D, a big-budget mainstream release directed by Alexandre Aja.
"Jessica Szohr has also been taking notes from Katy Perry’s song and kissing girls,” Marc Malkin of E! News said. “Szohr has a little make-out session with porn star Riley Steele in their new movie Piranha 3-D. Reportedly, Szohr’s character does a body shot off of Steele’s body before the kissing action that is reminiscent of mild Girls Gone Wild behavior."
Gossip maven Perez Hilton even got in on the buzz.
“While on hiatus from the show, Jessica worked on the not-so-anticipated horror flick, Piranha 3-D,” Hilton said. “In the flick, Jessica had to get a little cozy with one of her co-stars, Riley Steele. You know, the porn star! One scene has the girls locking lips and liking it while doing tequila body shots! Um, are we sure Joe Francis didn't produce this thing?”
“We had so much fun filming Piranha 3D anyway,” Steele said. “Getting to make out with Jessica and Kelly was just an added bonus.”
Steele gives up the tease and goes straight to the hardcore in Bar Pussy and Strict Machine, her latest Digital Playground titles. She also stars in Body Heat, the company’s upcoming big-budget fall release.
