  • Quotes

    • Jaime: (On her favorite event in the Olympics)
      Definitely gymnastics, because I was a gymnast for 11 years. That's my thing. My girlfriend, Betty Okino, was in the 1992 Olympics and won a bronze medal. She's a gymnast. So I'm a huge fan

    • Jamie: Earl is the best job any of us have ever had. From the cast to the writers to the crew, I can honestly say that I'm working with the best of the best and loving every minute of it.

    • Jaime: My friend calls me Martha Junior, because I'm good in the garden, I'm a neat freak and I love cooking.

    • Jaime (about filming the fight scene with Monet Mazur): We had such a great time. It was fun for us girls to get to do a badass fight sequence for once, to see some girls kick some butts.

    • Jaime: I box with my trainer for a workout, like kickboxing. It was fun. The fight stuff came easy to me because I like it.

    • Jaime: Everybody wants to keep the blonde hair and make me up like a Barbie Doll. I can't stand that, you know? I'd rather be in flip-flops and a wife beater with my hair pulled back in a hat, quite frankly.

    • Jaime: I'm doing Happy Family on NBC. I joined the cast, it's a John Larroquette show. That's been the best thing that's ever happened to me. I'm having such an amazing time. There are such amazing people on that show. Christine Baranski, I've been a fan of her for so long. All the other cast members are just such a pleasure to work with.

    • Jaime: It took 45 minutes to get into [my costume] every day and I couldn't do it by myself. I had to have two women help put me in it. It was four hours for me to get ready every day from the tattoos, they airbrushed my hair black every day, the outfit, the piercings, it was about four hours every day.

    • Jaime: There's more to me than my long, blonde hair and my little dancer body.

    • Jaime: My character is so over the top, but it's just funny to me.

    • Jaime: I learned what I can and cannot do, what I do and do not have to do and what I can and cannot say no to. So, I learned a lot of lessons and unfortunately a lot of women get started in the business that way. It's unfortunate but true.

    • Jaime: I've been on my own since I was 15, so I've got that tough girl tomboy. I'm a Leo. People just didn't see me as this sweet, vulnerable, innocent girl. They saw me as the strong, tough whatever who could play the bitch well.

    • Jaime: Bitches are fun to play. They really are.

  • Jaime Pressly is a talented actress, and a beautiful person.

    I think 'My Name is Earl' is one of the best shows on Telivision, but 'Earl' would be nothing without it's wonderful cast. Jaime is in that cast, and she is one of the best parts of the show. She plays the main character's ex-girlfriend, and she plays the part just right. She's a great actress, even though I've heard some people say she was horrible.

    She has a great Southern accent, and she delivers her lines wonderfully. I also saw she's going to be in the new Dead or Alive movie, and I think she'll be perfect for the part.moreless
