It's Jaime King's birthday today, and what better gift could a woman receive than to be named Crush of the Day?

Born in the sleepy suburbs of Omaha, Nebraska, Jaime King was showbiz from birth, being named after the cyborg protagonist of 'The Bionic Woman.' In 1995, young King dropped out of high school to move to New York and pursue a modeling career. Unlike most young ladies who try that gambit, she actually succeeded.

By fifteen she'd featured in magazines as major as Vogue and Allure, and in 1998 she made the transition to acting by hosting MTV's 'House of Style.' Her first major Hollywood role came in 2001's 'Pearl Harbor,' although most of her scenes were left on the cutting room floor. She's gone on to feature in movies as diverse as 'White Chicks' and 'Sin City.' You can currently see her on TV on The CW's country hit 'Hart of Dixie.'
