Model-turned-actress Jaime Pressly -- a native of Kinston, N.C. -- was born July 30, 1977, the daughter of a used car salesman and a classical dance instructor.

The blond beauty made the jump to films in 1997, playing vampy teen sirens in her early screen endeavors, which include the erotic sequel Poison Ivy: The New Seduction. She followed up with a part as a catty cheerleader in the 1998 teen comedy Can't Hardly Wait and next portrayed a young vixen in the mockumentary Ringmaster. In 2001, Pressly starred opposite Dennis Hopper in the thriller Ticker and returned to her bad-girl cinematic persona with her role as a tough biker chick in Torque (2004).

But Pressly's broadest public exposure has come thanks to the hit TV show "My Name Is Earl," for which she received her first Emmy win in 2007 for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy.
