NEW YORK - The editors of Rolling Stone have named AVN Female Performer of the Year Sasha Grey to the magazine's 2008 Hot List.
The list of the year's trendiest music, movies, fads and fashions places Grey in the company of Twilight actor Robert Pattison, "Gossip Girl" Leighton Meester, and the sleeping pill Ambien ("Hot Multipurpose Drug" of the year; DMT and syrup of Ipecac are officially out.)
"With her sad eyes, waifish body and willingness to push the boundaries of porn, Grey quickly became the toast of the San Fernando Valley," wrote Rolling Stone scribe Claire Hoffman. "Grey's stardom is starting to titillate people in legitimate Hollywood. Naturally, she likes that feeling very much."
Grey made mainstream news this year when Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh cast her as the lead in his low-budget indie feature The Girlfriend Experience.
"The simple fact that I was selected to be in Rolling Stone's Hot Issue this year is an honor in itself; they actually scouted me out before the news broke about my role in The Girlfriend Experience," Grey told AVN. "For me, that's the icing on the cake!"
The list is available in the current issue of Rolling Stone and online at RollingStone.com.
