Jennifer Tilly is a very rare hottie, as she is someone twice famous. She was first a Hollywood celebrity,
and then she became a celebrity in the poker world as well when she won one bracelet
at the WSOP.
When Jennifer won the Ladies No-Limit Texas Holdem event at the 2005 WSOP, defeating a field of
600 female players and reaping the $158k first prize, she decided to become a full time poker player.
Prior to her success in poker, Jennifer Tilly appeared in more than 30 big screen
movies and in many television shows and movies.
This dual celebrity status led her to become a feature in some televised poker events, such as
Poker after Dark. It is nice to have the charming babe Jennifer Tilly at the table, especially
given her proclivity for deep décolleté.
Jennifer Tilly's fame started when she got an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in
Woody Allen' s "Bullets over Broadway" in 1994. This is a very good Woody Allen movie where she plays a
movie actress without talent, but with the support of a dangerous mafioso. Unfortunately she is assassinated
by her bodyguard, becomes he gets deeply engaged in the play she is starring in, and thinks that her acting ruins
it. Pure woody Allen.
Jennifer often chooses very interesting characters. In "Bound", she plays a lesbian whose life is threatened by
very dangerous people. In "Dancing at the Blue Iguana", she is a stripper with a taste for dominatrix jobs.
In "Bride of Chucky", she is the girlfriend of
a sadistic serial killer resurrected into a doll. She becomes a doll herself at the end.
Her poker carreer is doing very well too. She won the WPT Ladies Invitational Tournament at the Bicycle
Casino in Los Angeles in 2005. She appeared in
She played in the Celebrity Poker Showdown and in the WSOP Tournament of Champions 2007 Edition. Her total
live tournament are in excess of $450k.
Jennifer is dating another successful profesional poker player since 2005, Phil "Unabomber" Laak. In 2008, the year when Peter Eastgate won the WSOP, Jennifer Tilly decided to go back to acting. This is great news and we are all looking forward to
seeing her again on the big screen.
