Long before her breakout role as the “hooker with the heart of gold” in the 2006 hit comedy Borat, comedian Luenell spoke openly about her body, beauty, and public perception. Now, fans can see this extraordinary diva in all her glory, along with an evocative interview that sheds more light on one of today’s biggest and brightest stars. The exposé titled “HEY, LUENELL” is a key feature in the April edition of Penthouse magazine slated to hit newsstands on March 21st!
“It was the opportunity of a lifetime because Penthouse wanted to do much more than just go skin deep,” said Luenell. “Looking closer at social media, Hollywood stereotypes, body shaming, and the current political landscape, posing for Penthouse empowered me to be real with y’all in a way that was previously unavailable to me.” Luenell continued, “ These things affect us all, and this is a more honest look than anything you’ll see in the mainstream. Naked truth can be as sexy as a naked body.”
Penthouse CEO Kelly Holland added, “For the past 52 years, Penthouse magazine has lead the conversation about the progression of sex, sexuality, and sex appeal—a conversation that is still woefully unexplored today.” Holland continued, “We’re huge fans of Luenell—her style, her attitude, her fierce honesty—and her layout reveals everything about who she is, who we are as a brand, and the world we want women to live in today.”
“I want to make history with this shoot,” said Luenell. “It’s already made history for me. I had cold feet, but they warmed up very quickly when I walked on set. I just said, “Eff it!” People can go fuck themselves if they feel any type of way about what I’m doing.”
