LOS ANGELES—Allie Haze will be ringing in the new year as the January 2014 Penthouse Pet of the Month. Featuring an exclusive interview and photo spread, the New Year edition of the storied magazine offers fans an up-close and intimate look at Allie Haze.

On stands December 10, Haze’s tasteful layout was shot by photographer Cisco Lamessi and features the popular star in an array of steamy poses to warm up the cold holiday winter nights

“What an honor to be chosen as a Penthouse Pet,” said Haze. “The shoot was a lot of fun, the photographer kept an energetic vibe on the set and the photographs are beautiful."

Star of HBO’s hit series Emmanuelle Through Time, Haze posed for Australian Penthouse earlier this year, and in between shooting XXX movies and magazine layouts, she has been working to elevate her mainstream profile with her starring role in the erotic HBO series Emmanuelle.

“Allie has such great energy and she is absolutely the perfect Pet to start off 2014,” said Penthouse Executive Editor Barbara Rice Thompson. “She’s sexy, gorgeous and has that ‘it’ quality. I’m sure we can expect great things from Allie in the future.”

A petite brunette of Dutch-Hispanic descent, Haze made her way to Los Angeles and into the porn industry in June 2009 after a two-year stretch as a preacher’s wife in Southern California’s Inland Empire. After four years and 180 adult features, the California-born entertainer is branching out as a mainstream actress who can be seen in HBO’s ongoing Emmanuelle series, and media personality and documentary subject in photographer Deborah Anderson’s unflinching Aroused.  She has been awarded and nominated for numerous awards, and is well-known particularly for the unforgettable impact she made as the sultry but assured Princess Leia in the 2012 XXX megahit Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody.

Fans of the Penthouse Pet of the Month will have the opportunity to see Allie Haze during her fall/winter dance tour and at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE), at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, January 15-18, 2014.
