North Carolina native Jaime Pressly was a gymnast, dancer, and model before she pursued acting. One of her first gigs onscreen was playing Drew Barrymore's body double in the 1992 thriller "Poison Ivy."
Pressly's first regular role on television came when she was cast as a dancer named Audrey in the series "Jack & Jill." One of her more memorable early screen roles was her turn as a snobby cheerleader in the teen comedy "Not Another Teen Movie" in 2001.

Even as she landed acting gigs, Pressly continued to model for Playboy and Liz Claiborne. She also appeared in the 2002 Aerosmith video "Girls Of Summer."
In 2005, she was cast as Jason Lee's trashy ex-wife in the hit NBC show "My Name is Earl."
