Biography

Known for her bubbly onscreen persona, distinctively breathless baby-ish voice and eye-popping curves, actress Jennifer Tilly has made a career playing airheads with high-pitched voices and hearts of gold. Though she has been accused of amplifying the ditziness supposedly inherent in her personality, Tilly began earning respect when she was nominated for an Academy Award for her comedic performance as a dumb and untalented actress in Woody Allen's "Bullets Over Broadway" (1994). A shining moment, indeed. But among the occasional bright spots, her career has been littered with B-movies and straight-to-video schlock (and no, she was never a body double for sister Meg in "Body Snatchers"). As she got older, however, the demand to play airheads and bimbos waned. Though life for an actress typically ends at 40, Tilly began landing more dramatic parts and plenty of voiceover work in animated features, giving her career much-needed new life.
