Leslie Bibb has been in the public eye since the turn of the millennium.
For two years beginning in 1999, she played Brooke McQueen on the TV teen drama "Popular," about two teenagers who are at different ends of the popularity spectrum at school. Brooke was a popular cheerleader, and another girl, Samantha, was a smart, geeky type who isn't popular. The two girls became stepsisters when their single parents married each other.
Since then, the North Dakota-born Ms. Bibb has done several movies, with roles in films such as Miss Nobody (in which she played Sarah Jane McKinney, an ambitious secretary at a pharmaceutical company, earning herself a Best Actress award for it at the Boston Film Festival) and Confessions of a Shopaholic. She has also had recurring roles in TV shows such as "About a Boy" and the 2015 version of "The Odd Couple."
