Last night, Jaime attended the 10th annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party in Los Angeles and I’ve already added 31 pics to our gallery, including 4 HQ. Jaime looked flawless with a Monse dress.
Here’s a new interview with E! News at Sundance Film Festival.
Jaime King can’t remember for sure what she wore to her first red carpet, but she thinks she has an idea.
“I think it was the premiere for Basquiat, and I went with [sisters] Lola Schnabel and Stella, cause their dad [artist Julian Schnabel] made that movie and it was the first movie premiere that I had ever seen,” the model-turned-actress says. “We were just kids, we were babies…It was in the ’90s so probably some sort of slip dress.”
This was just one of the many firsts that King recalled when I sat down with her at the Sundance Film Festival to promote her new indie Bitch.
The 37-year-old’s first celebrity crush? “Eddie Furlong, from The Terminator, because his hair was long with that sweet haircut and he rode that skateboard,” King said.
And then there’s the first time she knew she was in love with her now husband of 10 years, director Kyle Newman. Watch the video above to get the romantic details and find out what Kristen Bell had to do with it.
And check out the video below to hear what she had to say about her friendship with Taylor Swift .
WWD — Those used to spotting Jaime King grace red carpets, where she’s still very much in her former fashion model element, will get to see the actress in a different light in her latest film, “B—h,” which premiered this past weekend at the Sundance Film Festival.
The genre-bending indie, written and produced by Marianna Palka, who plays the title character, has received notice for strong performances by costars Jason Ritter and King, who play Palka’s husband and sister, respectively.
The films centers around a stay-at-home mom who reaches her breaking point and assumes the characteristics of a female dog. Her family struggles and ultimately transforms as they deal with the unusual situation.
The three are actually longtime friends; King and Ritter met when they worked on the television show “The Class” a decade ago, and Palka and Ritter cofounded the production company Morning Knight Inc.
“My whole life people have asked, ‘What’s your type?’ and my type of human being is the type that’s passionate. Marianna and I are very similar in the sense that we dive in completely into what it is we are trying to say or do,” King says.
She points to her unguarded style on social media. “Sometimes on Instagram people will say, ‘I love your feed, it’s so inspiring’ and sometimes I’ll make a post and go, ‘Am I too open? Am I too vulnerable?’ and it’s, like, ‘No. The world is so curated that it’s important to be who I am.”
King calls “B—h” the “anti-curation” film, saying, “It’s really balls to the wall.”
Having acted in mainstream and big studio fare, while producing and starring in her own sketch series, “Attention Deficit Theater” for the CW’s digital platform CW Seed, King understands all to well the Hollywood system. “A lot of times they say they want something like this but people usually back down from it because they get caught up in numbers and screenings and statistics. People are so used to operating out of fear, ironically, in a place like Hollywood which is supposed to be a creative hub. I have empathy for that.”
She’s happy to be in Park City, Utah, simply because “it’s really nice to just be able to just tell stories.”
As you may already know, Jaime’s new movie “Bitch” premiered at Sundance Film Festival yesterday. Here’s some info about the movie and the first pictures.
MarVista Entertainment and SpectreVision have set indie genre-blending drama Bitch, starring Hart Of Dixie‘s Jaime King and Jason Ritter (Parenthood), as the first film under their four-picture financing and co-production deal. Written, directed, and co-starring Marianna Palka (Good Dick), Bitch, which recently wrapped production, is a provocative tale of a woman (Palka) who snaps under crushing life pressures and assumes the psyche of a vicious dog. Her philandering, absentee husband (Ritter) is forced to become reacquainted with his four children and sister-in-law (King) as they attempt to keep the family together during this bizarre crisis.
Jaime King(born April 23, 1979) is an American actress and model. In her modeling career and early film roles, she used the names Jamie King and James King.
A successful model, King was discovered at age 14 in 1993 and appeared in Vogue, Mademoiselle and Harper's Bazaar, among other fashion magazines. From 1998, she moved into acting, taking small film roles. She has since appeared as a lead in other films, such as Sin City (2005) and My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009) and, from 2011 to 2015, starred in the television series Hart of Dixie.
