According to her own words, Jolene was a very lonesome child when she was young, despite the fact that she has three siblings, saying that she didn’t have any friends, and that reading was her favorite pastime. Apparently, she was always looking for ways on how to improve herself, even from such an early age, so she started acting in 6th grade, and of course her first acting steps took place in school plays. Her family briefly moved to Oklahoma, but after a few years returned to California, where Jolene spent the major part of her childhood.
Jolene was a very ambitious young woman, and she left home when she was 17 to pursue her dream – a modeling career. She went to Asia and Europe in search of modeling gigs, and over the years managed to land a couple of high-profile covers and editorials. For instance, she appeared in Playboy magazine in 2002, and she was also on the cover of Maxim. On top of all that, FHM magazine has ranked Jolene as the 10th sexiest woman on the planet in 2005.
However, it seems that acting was destined to become Jolene’s number one profession, and she predominantly worked as an actress through all of these years.
