Biography And Filmography:

This sexy actress became a Hollywood sensation from her co-hosting job on "Singled Out", the MTV smash hit, and Jenny McCarthy was able to take her success on that show and turn it into into a television sitcom career, beginning with the series "The Jenny McCarthy Show" (1996) and her own NBC series "Jenny" (1997-98).

Born the second of four daughters, Jenny McCarthy was raised in Chicago and had always dreamed of a Hollywood career. When she ran out of tuition money for nursing school, Jenny tried to find work as a model, but was turned down by the local agencies. 

According to the actress, McCarthy approached Playboy Magazine in 1993 in an attempt to earn some much needed cash. Within three months she was Miss October and went on to earn the title of Playmate of the Year. Taking her earnings she moved to Los Angeles to seek an acting career. Once in L.A., she met with talent manager Ray Manzella who had helped the early careers of Vanna White and Pamela Anderson. He sent her to an audition at MTV where she was hired. During her two-year run as co-host of "Singled Out", she showed her onscreen comic personality by making funny faces. She became an overnight sensation.  

In 1997, the network offered her a television sketch comedy series, "The Jenny McCarthy Show", where she was given full control. Many critics were not impressed by sketches that had her eating her own vomit or wearing extra long armpit hair. Regardless of  her talent, McCarthy was hired for a television deal. Based on a guest appearance as the date from hell on the comedy "Wings", the network agreed to create a show around her skills. "Jenny," with the blonde comic as a small-town girl who moves to Hollywood, debut to a moderate audience reception.

Despite her television popularity, especially with young teen males, Jenny had not yet been able to transform her popularity to the big screen. She made her acting debut as the private nurse of Christopher Walken in "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead" (1995) and played a glamour girl in "The Stupids" (1996), followed by the lead role in "BASEketball" (1998) opposite "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and featuring Yasmine Bleeth. 

Her best role to date was as Sugar, a working girl in a Las Vegas brothel in the Kirk Douglas starring "Diamonds" (1999), which was directed by her husband John Asher. Jenny was then cast as an arrogant actress, one of the latest victims of the Ghostface Killer in the horror sequel "Scream 3" (2000), with an all-star cast including Courtney Cox and Patrick Dempsey, where a women, Sidney, visits the set of "Stab 3," after pictures of her mother become the clue to a series of murders around Hollywood. The actress would reunite with director Zucker for the third parody of that film series, "Scary Movie 3" (2003), in an amusing and sexy scene opposite her one time rival and fellow Playboy Playmate Pamela Anderson.


After giving birth to her first child and writing about her pregnancy experiences in her best-selling 2004 book "Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth About Pregnancy and Childbirth", Jenny McCarthy returned to Playboy Magazine ten years after her first photo spread and centerfold looking as hot and sexy as ever. It seemed that now that she had become a top sexy celebrity, everybody wanted to see here nude. That months edition of Playboy Magazine was one of the fastest selling editions in Playboy history. As a result of her naked exposure she was hired to star in the UPN sitcom "The Bad Girls' Guide" (2005). 

McCarthy then accepted hosting duties for E! Entertainment's Las Vegas based  series "Party at the Palms" (2005), and wrote and produced the independent feature "Dirty Love" (2005), a madcap, gross-out kind of relationship comedy co-starring Carmen Electra about a photographer driven to dating an assortment of weirdo's and losers to push the buttons of her ex husband. McCarthy always showed her enthusiasm to do just about anything to sell her jokes including lifting her ban on nude scenes for a humorous sequence involving her bare breasts. Shortly before the movie hit theaters in fall 2005, she announced her split from Asher.

In 2006 Jenny McCarthy appeared as a very sexy mom in the young teen comedy "John Tucker Must Die" (2006) starring Jesse Metcalfe, about three ex-girlfriends of a serial cheater who set up their former lover to fall for the new girl in town so they can watch him get his heart broken. Jenny then grabbed some off-screen notoriety by being romantically involved with Jim Carrey.

In 2008, McCarthy was cast in the comedy "Witless Protection" (2008) starring Larry The Cable Guy, about a small-town sheriff who witnesses what he believes is a kidnapping and rushes to rescue a woman. She then had a supporting role in the comedy "Wieners" (2008) a comedy about three friends who travel across the country in a Wiener Wagon to beat up a popular daytime talk show therapist. The actress wrapped her year with the animated adventure "Around the World in 50 Years 3D" (2009) with Tim Curry, about a sea turtle who was hatched in 1959 and spends the next 50 years traveling the world while it is being changed by global warming. 


Apart from her celebrity status, Jenny became the spokesperson for "Talk About Curing Autism" after having a son who was diagnosed with the disease in 2005. Her subsequent book, "Louder than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism" was published in 2007.
