Jenny McCarthy

personality, actress, model
Born: 11/1/1972
Birthplace: Chicago

Actress, model and one time Playboy Playmate of the Year, McCarthy's vivacious personality has contributed significantly to her career. Just a few short years ago she was a nursing student at the University of Illinois—an offer to pose in Playboy soon ended her nursing career, and she has never looked back. Hired by MTV to co-host Singled Out, a dating game that debuted in 1995, McCarthy has also attempted both sitcoms (Jenny, in 1997, cancelled immediately) and feature films, such as Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead (1995), The Stupids (1996), Diamonds (1999) with Kirk Douglas, and Scary Movie 3 (2003).
