Biography

An appealing lead and supporting player on television and in features since the early 1990s, Leslie Bibb displayed a knack for comedy in features like "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" (2006), "Iron Man" (2008) and "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (2009) which allowed her to rise above the largely ornamental roles she had been given throughout her career. A former model, she first came to national attention with the farcical teen TV series "Popular" (The WB, 1999-2001), which led to a string of girlfriend or law official turns on both the small and silver screens. Bit parts in "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2" (2010) as well as an impressive turn as a bumbling, homicidal office worker in "Miss Nobody" (2010) allowed her to segue into more comedic roles. In 2012, she returned to series work on "GCB" (ABC, 2012- ) while balancing a steady diet of supporting work in features. Bibb's tenacity and ability to shine in roles outside the limited realm of work offered to attractive actresses made her the kind of timeless talent desired across the industry.

Bonus Trivia

.

Bibb on the uniquely multi-dimensional in-crowd character she played on "Popular": "[Brooke] is flailing on the inside. She's stuck with maintaining this image because that's how she thinks she'll be loved and fit in. But it's stifling. After all, what 16-year-old knows herself well enough to understand all the contradictions?" – from Touchstone Television's 1999 press materials for "Popular"
