Many may recognize Kevin Smith for his role as Silent Bob in the movie “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back”, but like him, his wife Jennifer Schwalbach is also an actress with a few notable titles in her repertoire. While Jennifer’s career hasn’t been as successful as her comedy husband’s, she has nonetheless had her fair share of public appreciation. The couple first met in 1999 and took their vows soon after. At the time, Jennifer was expecting their first and only child, a daughter named after Batman villain Harley Quinn.
4-7: Jennifer Schwalbach Smith turned 46. She married Kevin Smith and appeared in Clerks and Clerks II, as well as Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.
Here’s a quick look at all the untold truths we were able to dig up about the actress Jennifer Schwalbach Smith.
Early life and family
Not much has been revealed about Jennifer’s childhood except that she was born in Newark, New Jersey on April 7, 1971as Jennifer Mary Schwalbach. It has never been revealed who her biological parents are, or what her early life years were like. Most of her past has been a closely guarded secret and she only gained recognition when she joined the ranks of Hollywood’s many celebrities.
As much as Jennifer’s early life remains shrouded in mystery, her educational background is equally unknown. She never disclosed to anyone where she was educated, and so it is not known where she enrolled in high school, nor whether she pursued further education at a university or college.
Since she used to work as a reporter, it would be unbelievable to think that she has no professional training. Different sources separately state that Jennifer enrolled at Coral Springs High School, Florida, then enrolled at Florida State University, but also studied at the University of California, Los Angeles – her subjects are not identified.
Before making her mark in movies, Jennifer worked as a reporter for USA Today, the iconic New York newspaper that is distributed nationally in the US and internationally to various places in the world, including neighboring Canada. Jennifer also later got a job at MTV, but had to resign because she was expecting her child fathered by Kevin Smith, who would later become her husband.
Her acting debut was all due to the influence of her husband who is a writer and producer of several notable films. When she asked Kevin, Jennifer got a part in one of the movies he had been working on. Kevin was looking for an actress who could play the role of Missy McKenzie and decided to give Jennifer a shot.
In 2001, Jennifer made her film debut in “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back”. Their daughter, Harley Quinn, also appeared in the film as Silent Bob when he was a baby.
The following year, she made an independent appearance in the movie “Now You Know”, but it was a small role that did not bring her much credit. Her continued success as an actress was in several more Kevin Smith-related productions. In 2004, she starred in “Jersey Girl” as Susan, directed and co-edited by her husband Kevin.
In the same year, Jennifer made her directorial debut for the documentary “Oh, What A Lovely Tea Party”, a three-hour production about the making and filming of the movies “Jay and Silent Bob”.
In 2005, Jennifer co-starred with her husband in two consecutive episodes of the Canadian teen drama series “Degrassi: The Next Generation”. The following year she appeared in the film “Clerks II”, which was both written and produced by Kevin, and in 2008 she appeared in another production of his, with Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in the controversial “Zack and Miri Make a Porno “. .
Jennifer’s other appearances include “Red State”, “Tusk”, “Yoga Hosers”, and “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot”. Besides acting, Jennifer has also worked as a producer for the movies “Tusk” and “Yoga Hosers”.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Not much is known about Jennifer’s personal likes, dislikes, or likes, except that she has been a vegetarian all her life. Jennifer is known for a supposedly scandalous appearance in the January 2004 issue of Playboy magazine’s 50th anniversary issue. Jennifer had posed nude with a superman look-alike model – the photos were reportedly taken by her husband Kevin.
To date, the only relationship Jennifer has been involved in and received media attention has been with her husband. The couple met when Jennifer was assigned to do an interview with Kevin while they were still working for USA Today. This was at the time when rumors were circulating that Ben Affleck, an old friend of Kevin’s, and Matt Damon stole Kevin’s “Good Will Hunting” script. The couple married on April 25, 1999, and on June 26, Jennifer gave birth to their daughter Harley Quinn Smith.
