Jaime Pressly

Her role as Violet in 'Poison Ivy: The New Seduction' (1997)
Jaime Pressly was born in Kinston, North Carolina, on July 30th, 1977. The natural beauty began performing as a professional gymnast and dancer. Her classical dance instructor mother coached a young Jaime, who continued to practice gymnastics for 11 years. Although a trained dancer and gymnast, Jaime broke through as a model. By the time she was 13, her recognition was beginning to grow internationally. Appearing on the cover of Teen Magazine, Jaime also took to the world with modeling work in Italy and Japan. At the age of 15, the precocious teen legally emancipated from her parents, and began to appear behind movie cameras. She made her big screen debut in the 1997 film, Poison Ivy: New Seduction; she was offered the role after appearing as Drew Barrymore's body double in the original Poison Ivy film. After her role as a prostitute in Poison Ivy, Jaime appeared in the films Against the Law, The Journey: Absolution and Can't Hardly Wait, where it's safe to say that she stole the show from Jennifer Love Hewitt. That same year, she appeared in the Jerry Springer film Ringmaster, and was cast as C.J. Callum in Trash and in Coyote Moon, as Dottie.Jaime hit it big on the small screen in 1999, when she was cast as promiscuous dancer Audrey on the hit television show, Jack & Jill. While the only thing that she has in common with her role is her love for dance, Jaime is receiving recognition as one of the Jack & Jill babes. No stranger to television roles, Jaime appeared in the television series Push, and has shared her knowledge on the game show Hollywood Squares. The Southern girl starred in the film Best Actress (along with model Rachel Hunter); appeared in Poor White Trash (although she is anything but); appeared as Cynthia the Goddess in the comedy 100 Girls; and starred in the thriller Pinata. Currently married to Brodie Mitchell (sorry guys), the model/actress recently became a new spokesmodel for Liz Claiborne Cosmetics and the new fragrance "Lucky You". With a tattoo on her lower back of a blue Leo sign, with "healthy, strong and brave" written in Japanese, Jaime is only the next to prove that a beautiful face and talent can also blossom into a lucrative film career -- something Rachael Leigh Cook could have told her.Has a tattoo on her lower back of a blue Leo sign with Japanese writing meaning healthy, strong and brave. Hates doing love scenes. Feels that even a stage kiss is too intimate. Legally emancipated from her parents at age 15. (July 2000) Became a spokesmodel for Liz Claiborne Cosmetics and will advertise the company's new fragrance "Lucky You" starting September 2000.Source: actressgallery.com
