GQ U.K. Features Riley Steele in Online Pictorial

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Digital Playground contract star Riley Steele is set to make waves in mainstream this summer, and GQ U.K. is hot on her tail. Noting Steele’s potential “because she really can act,” the site for the popular men’s magazine features Steele in a sizzling seven-page web spread.

Steele is poised for a breakout summer. The blonde beauty stars in the upcoming Alexandre Aja-directed Piranha 3D alongside Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr, Chistopher Lloyd (Doc Brown in Back to the Future) and Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, Mr. Holland’s Opus).

“There are many beautiful blondes in Hollywood, but few have the charisma, charm and talent of Steele,” wrote James Mullinger for GQ. “It is telling that she will be sporting a bikini alongside GQ favourite Kelly Brook.”

"We knew when signing Riley Steele as an exclusive Digital Playground contract star that she was destined for greatness,” Digital Playground founder and director Joone said. “Riley is on the brink of becoming a major player not only in the adult industry but in mainstream. Her beauty and talent never cease to amaze; and her wonderful personality will truly make her one of the great stars of this generation."

Steele was named co-host for the 28th annual AVN Awards at the Palms on Jan. 8.

"We couldn't be more thrilled for Riley," Digital Playground CEO Samantha Lewis added. "It's an incredible honor to be featured in such a prestigious and respected publication. I knew Riley was a star in the making from the moment I met her. And it has been our goal to do exactly that, make her a star."
