“I would like to be like Britney, but maybe better, but I don't wanna outshine her.” Jamie Lynn Spears

Jamie Lynn Spears managed to escape the shadow formed by her older sister, pop phenomenon Britney Spears, and has experienced success on the Nickelodeon TV series “Zoey 101” (2005-2008). As Zoey Brooks, she took home two Kids' Choice Awards and shared two Young Artists Awards. She also earned a 2005 Teen Choice nomination. Prior to the successful comedy series, she spent two seasons on the Nickelodeon series “All That” (2002-2004) and netted a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice and a Young Artist nomination for her work on the program. Spears had her first taste in front of the movie cameras in Britney's unsuccessful vehicle “Crossroads” (2002).

In December 2007, Spears announced that she was pregnant by her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. She affirmed the couple's engagement in March 2008, and their daughter, Maddie Briann Aldridge, was born later on June 19, 2008 in McComb, Mississippi. In March 2009, Spears and her fiancé canceled their engagement. She terminated their relationship and moved out from the couple's house in February 2010. The couple reconciled in August 2010 but split up again in November 2010.  

Spears mentions Hilary Duff, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Will Smith and Lindsay Lohan as her favorite actors.
