Sunny Leone took the No Filter quiz on the second season of Neha Dhupia’s chat show and we got to know a lot about the quirky side of the actor. Sunny spilled the beans about her relationship with other stars, her dorky side and her phobias.

Here’s a sneak peek.

1. Sunny’s insect phobia

My team keeps a box of odomos around, a can of HIT and get-out sticks. So I knew I was going to Splitsvilla, I knew I was going in the middle of nowhere in the jungle. So I was like, okay, what can I do myself so that I don’t get crazy? So I brought those get-out sticks, so I can light them in my room every night. I probably had some pollution or something from all the smell, it’s really not good for you. The insects were on my bed, there was one lizard that I swear to God, I don’t know what was wrong with him. He hated me, he took a shit on my pillow all the time, right in the centre. How does he even get the poop in the center? How does he even know it’s the centre of my pillow? Then I had to call and change my sheets because this totally freaks me out.

2. Sunny, the dork

I’m klutz and I’m really dorky, I’m probably the complete opposite of what is in people’s minds of who I am. I can create my own website, learnt HTML, webmaster program. I taught myself how to edit videos, photos.

I don’t knit in public anymore, ’cause one time I was working on something on the plane, and one of the actors I was with made fun of me. Actually couple of them have made fun of me. So then I got really embarrassed, and I was like all right fine, I won’t do it in front of people. I paint, I paint like large abstract paintings. I don’t have them here but have them up on the wall in U.S.

4. On being the most Googled Indian

It feels great because there are always people out there trying to tear you down or there are trying to hurt you with their words. Numbers are the only thing that you can’t change, especially on Google. That’s not my report and that’s not a paid report either, which is the best and when I see it, that just confirms in my head that I’m in the right place. I’m where I need to be and it reminds me how amazing and supportive my fans are.

5. When actors refused to share the stage with Sunny

Neha: I’m going to read this out, this is the quote that you made “One of the first award shows that you went to, they wanted to put me on stage with another woman or any other actor and all of them said no and someone really nice ended up saying a yes”. Who is this person?

Sunny: Chunky Pandey!

Neha: Why do you think said no?

I was new then and when a new person comes in and specially when it’s like they think its shady or who is this person and where does she come from, blah blah blah, I think there is some sense of curiosity plus at that moment there were probably many women who didn’t like me. I’m okay with that, I don’t really care so much but it was weird to sit there. And I was sitting there for a very long time because they couldn’t find somebody to go on stage with me. Somebody told Daniel and then Daniel told me.

6. No real friends in Bollywood

Neha: Have you made real friends in Bollywood?

Probably not. I mean, I made really nice friends with people that I have worked with, and I know it sounds weird but where else am I going to meet people? I only meet people when I’m working with them. I’m not part of some social group or club, so it’s not like I’m meeting people and what I find is that people get so weird and shallow that it’s not me that they want to get to know, it’s someone else.
