Sasha Grey Crowned <i>Penthouse</i> Pet of the Month

NEW YORK - Porn starlet Sasha Grey has been crowned Pet of the Month in the July issue of Penthouse magazine.

Shot by acclaimed photographer Terry Richardson, Grey's layout was conceived with a 'runaway teen' theme. "They didn't use all the pictures we shot and all the setups we shot in the magazine," Grey told AVN. "But it does have a good edge to it, and photographically speaking, I think it's brilliant."

Grey does not appear on the magazine's cover because she's under the age of 21 and alcohol is advertised within its pages. However, Grey was happy to see the cover claimed by internet sensation Tila Tequila. "People will want to pick it up just because she's on it," she said.

The July Penthouse is on stands now.
