Jaime King (born April 23, 1979 in Omaha, Nebraska) is an American film actress and model. In her modeling career and early film roles, she went by the names Jamie King and most especially James King, which was a childhood nickname given to King by her parents, because her agency already represented another Jaime â?? the older, then-more famous model Jaime Rishar. King, because of the latter name, is sometimes referred to as the "Model with a man's name".Called by Complex magazine "[o]ne of the original model- turned- actresses", King appeared in Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Harper's Bazaar among other fashion magazines. Afterwards, she began taking small film roles, her first large endeavor being the big-budget Pearl Harbor (2001), and later first starring role in Bulletproof Monk (2003). She has gone on to appear as a lead in various other films, gaining more notoriety after Sin City (2005), a role which she will reprise in the sequel Sin City 2 (2009).
