JAMIE PRESSLY (Denise) combines beauty, talent and natural screen presence. She is currently in the fourth season of NBC's hit comedy "My Name is Earl” opposite Jason Lee, for which she won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2007 and received her first Golden Globe nomination. Additionally, she was nominated for a SAG Actor Award in both 2006 and 2007 and an Emmy in 2006. The year 2008 proved to be another big year for Pressly, who had a supporting role opposite Jim Carrey and Steve Carell in Twentieth Century Fox's animated film "Horton Hears a Who.” She also published a new book from HarperCollins titled "It's Not Necessarily Not the Truth,” which came out in February 2009. In it, Pressly writes candidly about the importance of dreaming bigger than the town you're from.

Pressly started performing at a young age. Born in Kinston, North Carolina, she was a tomboy who loved to water-ski and fish. Her mom, a highly accomplished classical dance instructor who trains current and future ballet students, put an early claim on her daughter's innate athleticism by teaching her ballet, tap, and jazz and led her towards gymnastics.

At 13, 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 had appeared 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.

Other film credits include "Dead or Alive”; "Venus & Vegas” with Danny DeVito; "Cruel World” starring Edward Furlong; Neil Moritz's "Torque”; "Not Another Teen Movie”; "Ticker” opposite Dennis Hopper; Columbia Pictures' "The Adventures of Joe Dirt” with David Spade; and Revolution Studios' "Tomcats” for director Gregory Poirier. Audiences also recognize her from her roles in Jerry Springer's mockumentary "Ringmaster,” "Can't Hardly Wait” and "100 Girls” costarring Katherine Heigl.

Her other television credits include The WB's hit series "Jack and Jill,” the TNT movie "Evel Knievel” and "Happy Family.”

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, Pressly presented her line during L.A. Fashion Week with a successful runway show in October 2007.
