Riley Steele (born August 26, 1987) is an American pornographic actress.[1]


Early life and adult film career[edit]

Steele grew up in Escondido, California.[5] Before starting her adult film career, she worked at Starbucks and at a golf course snack bar.[3] In 2005, being a huge fan of pornographic films herself, Riley Steele traveled to Hollywood just for the signing for Pirates, where she met some of her favorite stars, including her personal heroine, Jesse Jane. Jane advised her to get into the adult film business and gave Steele her card.[4][5] Steele didn't contact Digital Playground until a couple of years later. Joone, the founder of Digital Playground, signed her to an exclusive contract[3] that same day.[4][6] Her first scene was in the 2008 film Naked Aces 5.[7]

In 2009, Steele starred in an adult film with former UFC fighter War Machine,[8] and she also had her breasts enlarged.[1] In January 2011, she co-hosted the AVN Awards.[3]

In July 2012, Steele announced her very brief retirement from porn along with fellow Digital Playground contract girl BiBi Jones, both citing unfulfilled promises by the adult industry.[9] She later explained that this had been a joke which she had not expected people to take seriously. She said that she passionately loved the adult industry, along with all her co-stars, and was enjoying herself far too much to ever think about quitting.[10]

On September 20, 2013, Riley Steele signed a two-year contract with director Axel Braun.[11][12]

Mainstream media[edit]

Steele appeared in the 3D horror film Piranha 3D as "Crystal", a minor role.[13][14][15][16]

On December 23, 2010, Steele appeared alongside Manuel Ferrara in an episode of Manswers entitled "Airplane Plane Hanger-On" to discuss their careers for the segment "How Can You Become A Porktastic Porn Star".[17]

In 2011, she appeared in the TV Series: Life on Top and NTSF:SD:SUV.[citation needed]

She also appeared as the supporting character "Kaylie" on the HBO/Cinemax series The Girl's Guide to Depravity.[18]
