Best Local Porn Star (2012)

Priya Rai

By anyone's measure, Priya Anjali Rai is in the midst of a successful acting career. The 34-year-old East Indian starlet has been featured in dozens of movies, had her picture splashed across the pages of glossy magazines, won a major award for her talents, and has countless fans across the globe. Not bad for an ASU dropout.

There's one small difference between Rai and your average Hollywood ingénue, however: She acts in hardcore pornography. A native of New Delhi who emigrated to the United States as a child, she eventually wound up in Tempe studying as a Sun Devil in 2008, stripping and starring in skin flicks to help pay her way. When porn proved to be far more lucrative than higher learning, the voluptuous vixen (whose measurements are 34-25-35) decided to put ASU in the rearview. And she hasn't looked back. Rai, who divides her time between Phoenix and L.A., has been cast in more than 60 videos, including Office Perverts 2, Spicy Sexcapades, Cougar Hunter, and even an X-rated parody of HBO show Entourage. By the way, Rai's middle name roughly translates to "angel" in Hindi. Isn't it ironic?
