Leslie once played a page leading a tour of KNBC radio in New York, whose group happened upon a taping of one of Stern's early shows, featuring a woman who deep throated a 13-inch kielbasa sausage.
Leslie would later reminisce to TV Guide: "I didn't do anything with sausage, [but] to see this woman do what she did with the sausage was pretty awe-inspiring."
Leslie Louise Bibb was born in Bismark, North Dakota on November 17, 1973 and raised in rural Nelson County, Virginia, the youngest of four sisters. After her father's death when she was three (1976), she grew up in a single-parent home. 1988 Moved with family to Richmond, Virginia at age 14 (date approximate), where Leslie excelled at St. Gertrude's, an all-girls school.
After modeling in Japan, London, and Milan, Leslie is now turning heads in Hollywood. She appears on the series Popular on the WB Network. "Nine years ago you took a little girl from Kansas and gave her a new life," she told Oprah via videotape. "You made all my dreams come true."
After gaining such major recognition, Bibb's modeling career was launched. She briefly attended the University of Virginia, but by the age of 18 was working full time in New York with Elite, appearing in numerous magazines such as YM and Seventeen. While modeling brought Leslie to New York, it was acting that kept her there. She attended the William Esper acting studios for three years and took about nine months off in which she modeled in Europe (in France, Italy and England.) and Japan.
At Esper, Bibb was cast for two pilots, Face Value for the Fox television network and Talkgirl for MTV, neither of which were picked up as series. She landed the role of "dimwit model" for a Lee Jeans commercial. The slogan of the ad was "Lee Jeans will make you look like a model, just don't think like one." The director allowed Bibb to improvise on camera, and her wit came through.
Bibb left New York for Los Angeles, California. With enough money saved up, she gave up modeling and dedicated herself to acting. She had small parts in Pacific Blue on the USA network, Early Edition on CBS, Fired Up and Just Shoot Me on NBC, and Home Improvement on ABC.
Her first film role came in 1997's Private Parts, an adaptation of the autobiography of nationally-syndicated radio host Howard Stern. (An important book, right Leslie?) She played a page leading a tour of KNBC radio in New York, whose group happened upon a taping of one of Stern's early shows, featuring a woman who deep throated a 13-inch kielbasa sausage.
Leslie would later reminisce to TV Guide: "I didn't do anything with sausage, [but] to see this woman do what she did with the sausage was pretty awe-inspiring. It's like sword swallowing I guess."
Leslie is very athletic, and enjoys tennis, swimming and boxing, and toured New Orleans on a mountain bike while working on The Big Easy. She reads and sees movies when time permits, and toys with writing as a hobby. To relax on the set, she listens to a machine which produces the sounds of crickets, waves and white noise.
Leslie lives in Los Angeles with her dogs Jack and Harley. She continues her acting classes in L.A. with coach Leigh Kilton-Smith, and has acted on stage at the Imau! Theatre Company. She volunteers on Sundays doing theater workshops with juvenile delinquents through a group called "The Unusual Suspects.",
"They write their own plays and we'd go in and help them," I didn't know if they were guilty or not. We never talked about what they were in for. Through us, they got to explore their creativity for fue first time - they got to be kids."
