Besides being a successful Hollywood actress, Jennifer Tilly is also a true poker player and babe for that matter. She was born on September 1958, which makes her over 50 years old and she still manages to look amazing.
Jennifer Tilly played in many movies including Bound, Monsters Inc and Disney’s The Haunted Mansion. Tilly also did the voice of the psycho killer bride in Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky. Besides playing in the classic Chucky movies, she delivers a great performance playing Bonnie Swanson in the animated TV series Family Guy. We can definitely appreciate her kind of humor.
In 2003 Jennifer Tilly began playing poker competitively after being encouraged by her boyfriend and pro poker player Phil “The Unabomber” Laak. They’d met each other before during the WPT Invitational tournament at the Commerce Casino. Being with Phil Laak definitely improved her poker skills.
She proved her skill on June 27th of 2005 when she won a Word Series of Poker bracelet and $158,625 in the $1,000 Ladies No Limit Holdem event, where she outlasted 600 other poker players. Winning a genuine WSOP bracelet is the holy grail of all poker players and is definitely an accomplishment that put Jennifer Tilly on the poker map.
Her new rise to fame within the poker world caught the attention of game developers at Activision, who asked her to appear in their 2007 game World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions.
She has been playing poker ever since and with success. On July 09, 2010 she managed to win the $5,000 (WPT) No Limit Holdem Bellagio Cup VI. Leaving 90 poker players behind and pocketing $124,550 dollars in cash. This puts Jennifer Tilly’s total tournament winnings on an impressive $662,413.
