#45- JENNY SLATE

Age: 31

Hometown: Milton, Massachusetts

Known for: Saturday Night Live, Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, House of Lies

Why she's a JILF: Jenny’s comedy career began while attending Columbia University where she formed the improv group, Fruit Paunch. During this time, she met Gabe Liedman, who later became one half of her comedy duo, Gabe & Jenny. In 2009, she joined the cast of SNL where she was best known for impersonating celebrities including Kristen Stewart, Ashley Olsen, Lady Gaga, and Olympia Snowe. After being famously “let go”, Jenny has escalated to super-stardom with her animated viral video hit Marcel the Shell With Shoes on, roles in Bored to Death and House of Lies, and her current gig writing the screenplay for the upcoming Looney Tunes feature adaptation.

Check out our exclusive interview with Jenny Slate here.


#44- SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR

Age: 36

Hometown: New York, New York

Known for: All My Children, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Grudge, The Ringer

Why she's a JILF: Raised in Manhattan, Gellar was born to Jewish parents. Her career started at the age of 4 when an agent spotted her at a restaurant, encouraging her to audition for a TV movie. She landed the role, and went on to appear in various TV shows, films, commercials, and print ads. Her big break came while starring on All My Children and winning a Daytime Emmy for her portrayal of Susan Lucci’s long-lost daughter. She has since appeared in countless successful shows and films including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I Know What You Did Last Summer (where she met husband Freddie Prinze Jr.), The Grudge, and Cruel Intentions. Look out for her next in CBS’ new sitcom The Crazy Ones, a single-camera show about an advertising agency co-starring Robin Williams.


#43- RACHEL WEISZ

Age: 43

Hometown: Westminster, England

Known for: The Mummy, The Constant Gardener, The Fountain, Oz: The Great and Powerful

Why she's a JILF: Rachel is not only an extremely talented actress and gorgeous, but also highly opinionated & intelligent. Growing up, her parents wanted to encourage independent thought, so they would often engage in family debates. Since then, she has voiced her opinion about Botox and plastic surgery (“it should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?”) and turned down an acting gig at the age of 14 to star alongside Richard Gere. Since then, almost three decades have passed and Rachel has established herself as one of the most versatile actresses working today, with roles ranging from Penelope in The Brothers Bloom to Dr. Marta Shearing in The Bourne Legacy to Evanora in Oz: The Great and Powerful.


#42- ALICIA SILVERSTONE

Age: 36

Hometown: San Francisco, California

Known for: Clueless, Batman & Robin, The Kind Life

Why she's a JILF: Alicia first won us over with her portrayal of Cher Horowitz in the cult hit Clueless in the 90’s. She went on to appear in other classics including Batman & Robin, Excess Baggage, The Babysitter, and Miss Match. More recently, Alicia has been an avid advocate for organic, healthy, vegan living with the release of The Kind Life, a book and website dedicated to green living. Most recently, Alicia made news with the launch of Kind Mama Milk Share, a controversial initiative connecting moms lacking breast milk with those that have excess.


#41- ASHLEY TISDALE

Age: 28

Hometown: West Deal, New Jersey

Known for: High School Musical, Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure, Sons of Anarchy

Why she's a JILF: Ashley began her musical career at Monmouth County’s Jewish Community Center (JCC) appearing in Gypsy and The Sound of Music. At the age of 3, her current manager discovered her at a mall and placed her in more than 100 national commercials. By the age of 8, she was cast in Les Miserables and later performed for Clinton at the White House. But most of us didn’t know who she was until she played Sharpay in the ridiculously popular High School Musical series. After reprising her role of Sharpay in a straight to DVD film, Ashley has switched her focus to her blossoming music career, although she stills finds time to voice a character on Phineas & Ferb and prove her Disney days are in the past with mature roles in Sons of Anarchy and Left Behind alongside Nicolas Cage.

Check back in tomorrow for #40-31 on our JILF list!
