On July 30, 1977, in Kinston, North Carolina, one of the most
beautiful women was brought into the world. She grew up in
North Carolina. As a kid she had Ricky Schroder and Ralph
Macchio all over her room. Finally, at 15, she was legally
emancipated from her parents.
At that point in her life, she had spent eleven years training
for gymnastics, but she broke through, however, in the modeling
world. Her face has graced the cover of Teen Magazine, and
she toured the US, Italy, and Japan doing modeling work. Perhaps
her most well-known modeling work was in the pages of Playboy.
Her acting career stemmed off of her work as a model. Her
career, has seen her in a variety of roles, but always the
focus of the scene. She had a role in the Poison Ivy series
(which has also featured Alyssa Milano and Drew Barrymore).
In fact, her role in the series was offered after her work
as Barrymore's body double. In the Jennifer Love Hewitt vehicle
Can't Hardly Wait, Pressly was the one who caught everyone's
eye, an impressive feat. She also has a recurring role on
the television show Jack & Jill (with Amanda Peet), as
Audrey. Of her character, Pressly says she is "absolutely"
similar "except for the sleeping with all the guys."
But, Pressly doesn't want to be a Hollywood gal. "I
don't want to be the Hollywood girl...I'm Southern and old-fashioned,"
says Pressly. As far as her love life goes, Pressly has been
steadily dating. The possibility of marrying an actor? "I
don't care to date an actor as long as I live." In fact,
she doesn't even like love scenes with her costars. She feels
that even a stage kiss is too intimate.
