Jaime Pressley was born on 30th July 1977 in Kinston, NC, she dove headlong into sports at an early age, studying gymnastics and dancing for 11 years. Modeling became a vocation when she was just 14, where she made a name for herself in the highly competitive field in both the U.S. and abroad.
Pressley stated that she was unaware that nudity would be required for the picture) as well as a 1998 layout in Playboy, for which she was full aware. She would go on to pose for the magazine again, though in a more demure pictorial, in 2004. On the bright side, all of the exposure essentially cemented her in the minds of producers as a nubile and somewhat predatory femme fatale.
It was not for a lack of trying - between 2002 and 2005, she appeared in almost every genre of film - from comedies (2005's "Death to the Supermodels," which she also produced), horror flicks (2005's "Cruel World," which pitted lunatic reality show castoff Edward Furlong against an unwilling cast of victims), action movies (2004's dreary "Torque," in which she played a venal biker girl), and even family features (the bizarre "Karate Dog" in 2004).
That same year, she took home an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy. In 2006, she became engaged to her longtime boyfriend, DJ Eric Calvo, with whom she had a son, Desi James, in 2007 - named after famed Cuban entertainer Desi Arnaz. That same year, Pressley lent her distinctive voice to an animated character in the feature film version of Dr. Seuss's "Horton Hears a Who" (2008) with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell.
