Early life

Sunny Leone was born in Sarnia, Ontario to Sikh Punjabi parents.[12] Her father was born in Tibet and raised in Delhi, while her mother (who died in 2008)[13] was from Sirmaur, Himachal Pradesh.[12] As a young girl, she was a self-described tomboy,[14] very athletic and played street hockey with the boys.[2]

Although the family was Sikh,[12] her parents enrolled her in Catholic school[12][15] as it was felt to be unsafe for her to go to public school.[16] When she was 13, her family moved to Fort Gratiot, Michigan, then to Lake Forest, California a year later,[15][17] fulfilling her grandparents' dream that the family be together in one place.[12] She discovered her bisexuality at age 18.[18]

Career

Before working in the porn industry, she worked at a German bakery,[19] a Jiffy Lube,[15] and later a tax and retirement firm.[20] She also was studying to become a nurse.[14]

Sunny Leone at AVN Awards 2006

That same year, Leone signed a three-year contract with Vivid Entertainment with which she transitioned into the world of hardcore pornography, stating that she would only do lesbian scenes.[2] Her first movie released was titled Sunny[31] and was released in December 2005. Her next movie, Virtual Vivid Girl Sunny Leone, was the first interactive title for Leone, who was the first Vivid Girl to make such a movie.[32] Taking only four days to film,[19] the movie won her her first AVN Award (Best Interactive DVD). She followed this with Sunny Loves Cher, which featured her first on-screen squirting, and The Female Gardner co-starring Mikayla Mendez and Daisy Marie.

Leone's last two movies under her contract with Vivid were It's Sunny in Brazil, which was filmed in Brazil,[33] and The Sunny Experiment also starring Monique Alexander and Brea Lynn.[34] The movies were released in October and December 2007 respectively.

In May 2007, upon re-signing her contract with Vivid for another six films, Leone agreed to perform for the first time with men on camera, but exclusively with her fiancé, Matt Erikson.[35] That summer she also received breast augmentation,[36] and shot her first movie under the new contract titled Sunny Loves Matt. The movie led to her being nominated for three (out of six) AVN awards in 2009 in addition to being a choice for Female Performer of the Year.[37] She followed up her first boy-girl title with The Other Side of Sunny in October 2008, which would be the last time she would perform with Erikson.

In January 2008, Leone revealed that she was no longer exclusive to Erikson, and had done scenes with other actors, most notably Tommy Gunn, Charles Dera, James Deen[38] and Voodoo.[39] In 2009, Vivid released her only movie performing with other male actors titled "Sunny B/G Adventure".[40] Her final release under contract with Vivid – "Undress Me", once again made her exclusive to performing with just one male actor, Daniel Webber.[41]

In August 2009, she announced the launch of her own studio, Sunlust Pictures, with Daniel Weber as her partner.[42] With her new venture Leone announced her plans to write, direct and create her own brand of adult movies with Vivid Entertainment as her distributor.[38] Her first independent production, The Dark Side of the Sun, was released in March 2009, and was debuted at the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas.[43] In June 2009, she held a casting call in Las Vegas for her second independent production titled Sunny Slumber Party[44] (released September 2009).She followed up with three other self-produced features Gia Portrait of a Porn Star (2010) which was nominated for multiple AVN awards,[45] Roleplay (2011) and Goddess (2012) which featured her first anal sex scene.[46]

A police first information report was filed against her in May 2015 after a woman at Mumbai, India, complained that Leone's website, sunnyleone.com, was destroying the Indian culture. Thane police's cyber cell at Ramnagar booked her for sections 292, 292A, 294 which could land her into jail, fine or both. Senior police inspector JK Sawant stated, "We cannot block the website, but will ask the operator to remove objectionable content."[72]

She indicated that for the right price she would seriously consider a career in Bollywood.[78] She was courted by Indian directors in the past but felt uncomfortable with the roles that she would have played.[21][79] Director Mohit Suri reportedly asked Leone to play the lead role in his film Kalyug, but instead cast Deepal Shaw as he could not afford Leone's $1 million acting fee.[80] She has mentioned that Aamir Khan is her favorite Bollywood actor,[81] and that over 60% of her fans are from South Asia.[82]

Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber at Vogue Beauty Awards in 2017

Although bisexual, she has stated that she prefers men.[154] Leone was engaged to Matt Erikson, a vice-president of marketing at Playboy Enterprises but they broke up in 2008.[17][155][156][157] Sunny Leone had dated stand-up comedian Russell Peters for a brief period in 2008.[158][159] She mentioned in an interview at the start of 2011 that she was married to Daniel Weber.[160] During her stay in the Bigg Boss house later that same year, Leone indicated that she had married; Leone said she 'purposely arrived late' to their first date as she was not impressed with him, but he changed her mind by sending 24 roses to her hotel room.[161][162]

A 2008 Eye Weekly article reported that "Leone does her best to maintain a link to Sikh traditions, even if more in theory than in practice. But she's unlikely to disavow her career path due to religion" and that Leone said "Girls will leave the industry claiming that they found God. Well, the fact is, God has always been with them the entire time."[163] In a 2010 interview, she said

It's a community-based religion. You walk into a temple and you're greeted with the utmost respect... But, just like any religion it doesn't want you to shoot adult material. I mean, I grew up going to temple every Sunday. When my parents found out they knew my personality which was very independent. Even if they tried to stop me or tried to steer me the right way they would have lost their daughter. I'm too headstrong. And it wasn't a plan. It just happened and my career and everything just kept getting bigger and bigger.[16]

In July 2017 Leone and her husband Daniel Weber adopted their first child from Latur, a village in Maharashtra. The baby girl named Nisha was 21 months old at the time of adoption. Actress Sherlyn Chopra first confirmed the news by writing a congratulatory message on social media on 20 July 2017. "Never in my life did I think that I want to adopt a child. People doing such amazing work at the orphanage changed my mind," Daniel Weber told Hindustan Times."[164][165][166][167]
