Actress Jaime Pressly, 27, plays Linda Bork, the first wife of daredevil Evel Knievel, in a new biopic about his life starring George Eads. It premieres July 30 on TNT.
ON EVEL He was one of the last great American gladiators. But persona is one thing; the actual person I don’t much care for. The things he did are catching up with him, whether it’s the Wild Turkey or the wild things he did.
ON HER NEW CLOTHING LINE I was shooting Torque, and on an action film there’s a lot of sitting around while they’re setting up for stunts. I started sketching a lingerie line because I love pajamas. Now it’s turned into a whole ready-to-wear line that will be in department stores this fall.
ON DATING KID ROCK We thought we’d try it because we’re such good friends. We thought it’d be perfect. But it wasn’t. I love him, but I’m just not a rock star’s girlfriend. My new boyfriend is a businessman, but I don’t talk about him. The minute you talk about a relationship, it ends. This is way too good for me to end.
