Pressly was recently seen in the feature film, "I Love You, Man," starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, and was heard in Twentieth Century Fox's animated film "Horton Hears a Who," opposite Jim Carrey and Steve Carell. She also starred in the independent feature films "DOA: Dead or Alive," opposite Devon Aoki and Steve Howey, and "Venus & Vegas" with Danny DeVito, Donald Faison, Eddie Rose Thomas, Roselyn Sanchez, Eddie Guerra and Molly Sims.

Pressly published a book from HarperCollins in 2009 titled "It's Not Necessarily Not the Truth." In it, she writes candidly about the importance of dreaming bigger than the town you're from.

In addition, Pressly starred in the cable TV movie "Evel Knievel" appearing as Evel's (George Eads) wife. The film told the real-life story of the legendary daredevil—and the pain and suffering endured by his wife. She also displayed her athleticism and grace as a strong-willed biker girl in Neil Moritz's action-thriller film "Torque" (also starring her fellow "Earl" star Eddie Steeples).

Pressly's extensive dance background and her acting ability were showcased in her most memorable television role as Audrey Griffin, an aspiring Broadway dancer, on The WB series "Jack & Jill. She was also on the big screen portraying a "bitchy" head cheerleader—and the most popular girl in school—in the satirical comedy film "Not Another Teen Movie."

Pressly has enjoyed box-office success in many films, including a starring role as Claire Manning, the female lead in Filmworks' "Ticker," opposite Dennis Hopper, Steven Segal, Tom Sizemore and Kevin Gage, for director Albert Pyun. She has also appeared in "Cruel World," starring Edward Furlong, "The Adventures of Joe Dirt," with David Spade, and Revolution Studios' "Tomcats," alongside Jerry O'Connell, Shannon Elizabeth and Jake Busey, for director Gregory Poirier. Audiences also recognize Pressly from her roles in Jerry Springer's mockumentary "Ringmaster," "Can't Hardly Wait" and "100 Girls," co-starring Katherine Heigl.

Born in Kinston, North Carolina, Jaime Pressly grew up as a tomboy who loved to water-ski and fish. Her mom, a highly accomplished classical dance instructor who trains current and future Joffrey Ballet students, put an early claim on her daughter's innate athleticism by teaching her ballet, tap, and jazz, and pointed her towards gymnastics.

At age 13, Jaime Pressly registered with a local modeling agency and began working consistently. She submitted a photo to an international teen-modeling agency and by the age of 14, her face began to appear on the covers of several prestigious teen magazines. She quickly became the spokesperson for her agency, International Cover Model Search, which took her to Tokyo and Milan.

On the small screen, Pressly was seen in the comedic film "Best Actress" (E! Entertainment's first original movie for television). She also starred as a former gymnast on the series "Push" from the creators of "Party of Five."

Now, living near Los Angeles, Pressly spends her free time with friends who share her love of nature. She enjoys hiking, horseback riding, swimming, kickboxing, playing with her two dogs and, most of all, spending time with her baby, Dezi, born in May 2007.

Pressly also had her own clothing line, J'aime, which started as lingerie and became a full, ready-to-wear clothing line. Although the clothing is no longer available, she presented her line during L.A. Fashion Week with a successful runway show in October 2007.
