(HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- In what has been one of the biggest years for any woman who has made their profession in the adult industry and successfully ''crossed-over'' into the mainstream, Sasha Grey has accomplished more than anyone in her time.
As 2009 draws to a close, Grey was chosen among a select group of people chosen by Newsweek to provide analysis for the magazine’s ''20/10: The Decade in Rewind,'' a project undertaken in conjunction with online social networking titan Facebook.com.
''I want to thank Newsweek for giving me the opportunity to participate in the magazine’s look at the past decade, and hopefully readers will appreciate my serious undertones in a lighthearted fashion.'' Grey said.
Grey goes into detail, putting her thoughts to print on the recent scandal involving South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, as part of the decade’s 10 biggest sex scandals, posted Friday, November 20. The sex scandal list, along with several previous lists covering a variety of topics, is available online at http://2010.newsweek.com/
