Background:

“Be yourself, fill your life with good people, and don’t get a big head. It can all be gone tomorrow.” Molly Sims

American model and actress Molly Sims first became famous for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues and gained additional popularity for playing Delinda Deline in the NBC drama “Las Vegas” (2003-2008). She has appeared in several films, including “Starsky & Hutch” (2004), “The Benchwarmers” (2006), “Yes Man” (2008) and “Fired Up!” (2009).   

Sims ranked No. 71t on the 2005 list of Maxim Magazine’s “Hot 100” and No. 83 on FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World 2005.” The American beauty of Cherokee descent, Sims has a fear of flaying and is a big fan of yoga.   

On a more personal note, the green eyed blonde is married to the American film producer Scott Stuber. They have one child together. Sims was once engaged to fashion designer Stephan Dessaint, but the bond later split up. She also was formerly linked to Enrique Murciano (began dating in 2002; split after several years together) and Aaron Eckhart (dated  for several months in 2009; no longer together).

Childhood and Family:

Molly started dating Scott Stuber in early 2010. The couple announced their engagement in May 2011 and eventually tied the knot on September 24, 2011, in Napa Valley, California. Molly gave birth to her first child, son Brooks Alan Stuber, on  June 19, 2012.

Career:

“Sometimes people want to approach me, especially guys, because they’re interested in seeing how I respond to them. However, after they get to know me, they realize that I’m not what they originally thought. They usually think I’m just a pretty face. The biggest misconception is that people don’t realize that I’m southern until they hear me speak.” Molly Sims

A native of Murray, Kentucky, Molly Sims was a law student at the Tennessee Vanderbilt University when her friend suggested her to take modeling. She then had her photos sent to agencies in New York and it paid off soon when the NEXT Modeling Agency signed her. Deserting her dream of becoming an attorney, Sims flew to London to launch her professional modeling career. It was not long before she modeled in other Europe countries such as Germany and Italy.

As her popularity grew, the attractive Sims fronted many major fashion magazines, including Marie Claire, Vogue, Elle and Madame and Figaro. This cover girl soon branched out to TV advertisements and worked with big names like Armani, Chanel and Nautica. Sims later returned to the U.S to appear in the sexy Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalog.          

Armed with her top model status, Sims began to try her hands in acting. She had a big break in 2000 when she was hired to replace supermodel Rebecca Ramijn-Stamos as a host for the long running MTV fashion show “House Of Style” (2000-?), a series that also formerly launched the career of Cindy Crawford. The success won Sims subsequent hosting gigs in “The Victorias Secret Fashion Show” (2001), “World’s Sexiest Athletes” (2002) and “MTV’s Mardi Gras 2002.” Meanwhile, Sims posed for the 2000 and 2001 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit editions, as well as became the spokesperson for the famous Old Navy clothing store and appeared on their TV commercials.           

Sims continued acting with guest roles in an episode of “Andy Richter Controls the Universe” (2002, as Tracy) and “The Twilight Zone” (2003, as Janet) and also appeared as an injured girl in the made-for video “Frank McKlusky, C.I.” (2002). Her big break came when she was cast in the regular role of the sexy, scheming Delinda Deline in the NBC crime/drama “Las Vegas,” opposite James Caan, James Les, Josh Duhamel and Nikki Cox. She was on the show from its debut on September 22, 2003 to its final on February 15, 2008      

While working on the Gary Scott Thompson-created series, Sims added film acting to her endeavors in 2004, when director Todd Phillips cast her in the supporting part of Mrs. Feldman in the Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson comedy “Starsky & Hutch.” She followed it up with a role as Rob Schneider’s wife on the sports/comedy film “The Benchwarmers” (2006), directed by Dennis Dugan. She also reprised her role as Delinda Deline in an episode of “Crossing Jordan” called “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” (2007). She once again became the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model in 2006.

After “Las Vegas” departed the airwaves, Sims was cast opposite Jim Carrey in the Peyton Reed hit comedy film “Yes Man” (2008), appeared in teen comedy “Fired Up!” (2009), which was directed and written by Will Gluck, and co-starred with Donald Faison, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Eddie Guerra in the action/comedy “Venus & Vegas” (2010). In 2008, she made several cameos on the Bravo reality series “The Rachel Zoe Project,” which starred her stylist Rachel Zoe. Next up for Sims, she appeared with Matthias Chrans, Circus-Szalewski and Laura Gardner in the 2011 made for TV film “Shredd” and with Julie Adams, Seth Bailey and  Annie Bakke in the film “Chez Upshaw” (2012). In 2012, she also made guest appearances in the television series “Royal Pains” (as Grace Hay Adams) and “Wedding Band” (as Vanessa).
