Biography for Jenny McCarthy

Jennifer Ann "Jenny" McCarthy (born Nov. 1, 1972 (49 years ago)) is an American model, comedian, actress, author, and activist. She began her career as a Playboy magazine model in 1993 (28 years ago), before launching a TV and movie acting career. Most recently, she has written books on parenting issues and has become an activist promoting the avoidance of vaccines.

Early years

McCarthy was born in Chicago, Illinois. Her middle-class Catholic family lived in the West Elsdon neighborhood of Chicago. She is the second of four daughters; her sisters are named Lynette, Joanne and Amy. Her cousin is Melissa McCarthy of Gilmore Girls fame. McCarthy's mother, Linda, was a housewife and courtroom custodian, and her father, Dan McCarthy, was a steel mill foreman. She attended St. Turibius Grade School on Chicago's South Side. As a teenager, McCarthy attended Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School (whose school sweater she donned in the pages of Playboy) and was a cheerleader at both Brother Rice High School and St. Laurence High Schools, although she has referred to herself as an "outcast" at her school. After McCarthy graduated from high school, she attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale to study nursing. She needed money to pay for college, so she decided to submit her picture (wallpaper) to Playboy magazine to make money. She was accepted and became a model.


After getting accepted by Playboy in 1993 (28 years ago), the magazine wanted her to pose for the Oct. issue. McCarthy was paid $20,000 for the photo (wallpaper) shoot. McCarthy became the Playmate of the Month and later the Playmate of the Year. In 1994 (27 years ago), thanks to this newfound attention and popularity, McCarthy moved to Los Angeles and, for a time, hosted Hot Rocks, a Playboy TV show featuring uncensored music videos.

In 1995 (26 years ago), MTV chose McCarthy to be the host of a new dating show called Singled Out, for which she left Hot Rocks. Her job as a host was a success, and Playboy wanted her to do more modeling. That same year, she also appeared at WrestleMania XI as a guest valet for Shawn Michaels. She left after the match with the victor, WWF Heavyweight Champion Diesel. She returned to the WWE on the Aug. 2, 2008 (13 years ago) edition of Saturday Night's Main Event to thank the fans for supporting Generation Rescue. In 1996 (25 years ago), McCarthy landed a small part in the comedy The Stupids. In 1997 (24 years ago), McCarthy launched two shows. The first one was an MTV sketch comedy show The Jenny Mccarthy Show, which was sufficiently popular for NBC to sign her for an eponymous sitcom later that year, Jenny. The latter show is generally considered a disappointment and was quickly canceled. Also in 1997 (24 years ago), she appeared on one of two covers for the sep. issue of Playboy (the other cover featured Pamela Anderson (24 walls)). McCarthy also released an autobiography: Jen-Y.

In 1998 (23 years ago), McCarthy starred in BASEketball. In 1999 (22 years ago), she starred in Diamonds, a movie which was directed by her husband John Mallory Asher. The next year, she appeared in the horror movie Scream 3. Since 2001 (20 years ago), McCarthy has guest starred in such shows as Stacked, Charmed, The Drew Carey Show, Wings, Fastlane, and Just Shoot Me!.

In 2003 (18 years ago), McCarthy appeared in Scary Movie 3 along with model and actress Pamela Anderson. In 2005 (16 years ago), McCarthy produced, wrote, and starred in Dirty Love (2 walls) along with Carmen Electra. The same year, McCarthy hosted a new show on E! called Party at the Palms. The reality show, which is filmed at The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, features hotel guests, party goers, and celebrities. In Mar. 2006 (15 years ago), she was given Razzie Awards for "Worst Actress", "Worst Screenplay", and "Worst Picture" for her work on Dirty Love (2 walls), which also netted her then-husband, John Asher, a Razzie for "Worst Director."

McCarthy has continued her work with Playboy over the years, both as a model and in other capacities. She appeared on the cover of the magazine's Jan. 2005 (16 years ago) issue wearing a leopard skin bunny suit and was featured in a pictorial shot at Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion in the same issue. She was the second woman (Carmen Electra (75 walls) was the first) and first Playmate to become a celebrity photographer for the Playboy Cyber Club, getting behind the camera to photograph model Jennifer Madden, who is not a Playmate.

Jenny's younger sister, Amy, has also posed for Playboy. She was a Cyber Girl of the Week and the Cyber Girl of the Month for Jan. 2005 (16 years ago).

She is the current voice of Six in the season three of Canadian CGI Sci-Fi cartoon Tripping the Rift.

McCarthy currently stars in an online five episode series, called In The Motherhood, along with Chelsea Handler and Leah Remini. The show is on MSN and is based on being a mother where users could submit their stories to have it made into real webisodes.

She also plays the role of Agent Tanya in the video game Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3.

Though McCarthy initially rose to fame because of her sexual image, a frequent source of her celebrity derives from toilet humor. McCarthy once modeled for Candie's, a shoe company. In one magazine ad, McCarthy posed on a toilet seat, with her underwear near her ankles. Cultural scholar Collin Gifford Brooke wrote that the ad's "taboo nature" brought it attention, while noting that the ad itself helped to weaken that taboo. Another Candie's ad depicted McCarthy passing gas in a crowded elevator.

A sketch on her MTV show centered on her character, a well-coifed business woman, answering the question of "What did you have for lunch?" by seeming to force herself to vomit all over a table which she then ate on-screen. This was faked using special effects. The direct contrast of McCarthy's reputation as a sex symbol and this often grotesque humor is closely associated with her image. This image (wallpaper) was taken to a new extreme in her movie Dirty Love (2 walls), which featured McCarthy's character sitting in a massive pool of her own menstrual blood.

Personal life

In 1993 (28 years ago), McCarthy underwent breast augmentation to enhance her look as a model for Playboy. McCarthy had the implants downsized in 1998 (23 years ago).

McCarthy dated her manager Ray Manzella for a short time in 1998 (23 years ago). After breaking up with Manzella, McCarthy began dating actor/director John Mallory Asher. The couple became engaged in Jan. 1999 (22 years ago), and married on sep. 11 of that year. They have a son, Evan Joseph, born on May 18, 2002 (19 years ago). Evan is autistic. In Aug. 2005 (16 years ago), McCarthy and Asher filed for divorce.

In a Feb. 2006 (15 years ago) interview with Howard Stern, adult actress Jenna Jameson (9 walls) said she had two sexual encounters with McCarthy. When McCarthy visited Stern's show in Apr. 2006 (15 years ago), she denied having sex with Jameson, but said she "made out" with her during the two encounters. McCarthy also took a lie detector test and passed the questions regarding Jameson.

In dec. 2005 (16 years ago), McCarthy began dating Jim Carrey. They did not make their relationship public until Jun. 2006 (15 years ago). She announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Apr. 2, 2008 (13 years ago) that she and Carrey are now living together, but have no plans to marry, as they do not need a "piece of paper." Carrey almost made a mock proposal to McCarthy as a promotion to the film, Yes Man, in which Carrey's character has to say "yes" to everything.

Her brother-in-law is NHL hockey player Dan Hinote of the St. Louis Blues. Dan is married to her younger sister, also a former playboy model Amy McCarthy. She is also an avid Chicago White Sox fan.
