Gina Wilhelm Actress – Jaime Pressly is Sexy AND Funny
For years, Jaime Pressly was told she couldn’t be funny-she was too sexy and pretty. She now has an Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmy that says otherwise.
However, now that she has that award, (along with her success on “My Name is Earl” and a scene-stealing role in “I Love You, Man”) people are saying she’s too funny to be sexy.
Pressly says she actually doesn’t mind that as much. She says comedy is her first love.
She started in gymnastics before becoming a model and finally an actress, but most of her roles were small and involved being some sort of “sex bomb.”
It wasn’t until Greg Garcia, the creator of “My Name is Earl” that someone finally gave her a chance to be funny.
Pressly says she believes comedy is genetic, and her family is very funny.
She said that filming “I Love You, Man” was more like partying than working. So much of it was improvised that she doesn’t remember now which parts were scripted and which weren’t.
Pressly also wrote a book, “It’s Not Necessarily Not the Truth: Dreaming Bigger than the Town You’re From,” which came out on Monday.
