Jennifer Gimenez joins Rachael today to talk about her EPIC life and career. Jennifer was discovered on the Santa Monica Pier by legendary photographer Bruce Weber at the age of 13. Her modeling career blew up and she was soon walking the runways of Paris and was the it girl for the famous designer Alaia. She was the youngest person to ever appear on the cover of Elle Magazine and starred in a documentary that was nominated for an Academy Award. She then turned to acting where she read with legends like Robert De Niro, competed for roles with Penelope Cruz and eventually had roles in movies like Blow w/ Johnny Depp, Vanilla Sky w/ Tom Cruise and many more. Throughout all of this though, she silently struggled with addiction, attempting to get sober several times. She finally had success at the facility where she met Dr. Drew which would ultimately be another turn in her career. She starred in both Sober House and Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew and has celebrated almost 15 years of sobriety. She's an inspiration about how you can be on top, hit rock bottom, and pull yourself out and have the life you always dreamed of.
