Jennifer Schwalbach and Kevin Smith have a hilarious story as to how the duo first met. Apparently, Kevin was practicing with Chris Rock and was scheduled to meet with a US Today journalist. Chris Rock left the room after a few sessions and Kevin heard a knock on his door soon after Rock’s departure. When he opened the door, Kevin was faced with Jennifer Schwalbach, a drop-dead gorgeous beauty, who Kevin thought was one of the bar hookers. And given USA Today’s tendency to send in old reporters for interviews, Kevin was quite shocked to see Jennifer. Fast forward to today, and the pair recently celebrated their 20th Anniversary. So, in this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Jennifer Schwalbach.
Jennifer Mary Schwalbach was born on the 7th of April, 1971 in Newark, New Jersey. Not much is known about Jennifer’s life and the former reporter has kept details on her parents, siblings, and early life under wraps. Given her status as a reporter, it might be safe to assume that she has had a University education of some sort, but Jennifer has not been too forthcoming with the details.
Jennifer was a reporter for USA Today and would often travel around the states for her assignments. It was during one of her assignments when she met Kevin Smith and the pair fell in love. Ultimately, Jennifer fell pregnant and had to leave her job.
Not limited to one side of the industry, Jennifer decided to explore acting and asked Kevin to cast her in the role of Missy in the 2001 movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. At the time, Smith was looking for someone to play the role and gave it to Jennifer. Since then, Jennifer enjoyed a variety of supporting roles for several movies written by Smith. Some of her credits include, Now You Know (2002), Jersey Girl (2004),
Oh, What a Lovely Tea Party (2004), Degrassi: The Next Generation (2005), Clerks II (2006), Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), Red State (2011), Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie (2013), Tusk (2014), The Mission (2015), Yoga Hosers (2016), and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019).
In January of 2004, Jennifer was photographed nude with a superman lookalike for Playboy Magazine’s 50th Anniversary Issue, which was photographed by her husband. During her early years, Jennifer also worked on the SModCo SMorning Show on SModcast Internet Radio (S.I.R) hosted on SModcast.com. The show came after the previous show she hosted, Plus One Per Diem was canceled in favor of the SModCo SMorning Show.
American actress and reporter Jennifer Schwalbach has a net worth of USD 5 million.
Jennifer Schwalbach is happily married to Kevin Smith and the pair have been together for two decades. While the pair are often concerned with secrets and privacy, Smith decided to bare it all in the 20th Anniversary post dedicated to his wife. The actor recounted the story of how the pair first met and Smith thought that Jennifer was a hooker when she knocked on his door.
“So [Chris] Rock and I rehearse and as he’s leaving, I tell him I’m doing an interview with USA Today next and that I feel weird that it’s in my hotel room,” Smith writes. “Rock jokes ‘Better here than the bar downstairs. It’s filled with hookers!’ Ten minutes after Rock left, there was a knock on my door. When I answered it, a stunning young woman roughly my age was standing there. And because up to that point, anyone I’d ever been interviewed by at USA Today has been in their late 40’s, the first thought that ran through my head when I saw the face of my future wife was ‘Oh no! Chris Rock sent a hotel bar hooker to my room!'”
Jennifer didn’t seem to mind the story and the pair tied the knot in 1999 and had their only child, Harley Quinn Smith, on 26 June 1999. The family of three lives in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles.
