LAS VEGAS - Break out the single-malt scotch: AVN award-winner Sasha Grey can finally drink something other than Coca-Cola and the sperm of strange men.
Sasha has many reasons to celebrate this Saturday night at the Venetian's TAO nightclub, where she will toast her 21st birthday in high style. The fiercely independent and uninhibited actress has come a long way in just three years of hardcore performing.
In her latest crossover coup, the star of Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience and Jay Sin's Anal Acrobats is featured in the Hollywood 2009 edition of the "ultra-hip" magazine Black Book.
"Shooting for Black Book was quite interesting," Sasha mused on her My Space blog. "People on set are curious, but there is still such a sense of the unknown that tends to float around the room when I am on a shoot like this. Black Book and its staff treated me with the utmost respect, so it was great going into an unstressful day.
"I would have liked to know that two of my male counterparts were gay porn stars; I would have perved out even more! I have such a fascination with the gay adult world, as we are so detached from each other. I actually find that a bit disappointing; at the end of the day, we should all relate to the struggles of discrimination, obscenity, stereotypes, etc. Gay or straight, Luca Di Corso and Jeremy Bilding were great to work with; it was a great experience for me."
Saturday night is sure to be a great experience for the lucky elite who manage to penetrate the tight sphincter of TAO.
For Angelenos who can't make the Sin City scene, Sasha will attend a Black Book party tonight at the Sunset Marquis hosted by actress Mischa Barton.
After the ch-chi Marquis event, the all-grown-up Grey will host Joanna Angel's Girls Girls Girls 2 video release party at the Roxy. It's an '80s night, but Sasha says she's "more of a Sisters of Mercy fan."
What about Sir Lord Baltimore?
Happy 21st, Sasha. As a drunk and dope-crazed Ozzy habitually exclaimed at Black Sabbath concerts throughout the 1970s, "WE LOVE YOU!"
