Jill Goodacre entrenched her presence in the modelling industry in the 80s through the early 90s as one of the foremost Victoria’s Secret models during the brand’s early years and is thus, fittingly referred to as the Queen Mother for all Victoria’s Secret models. Along with her colleagues, she established the lingerie moguls as one of the famous fashion brands, making it a name to reckon with among women.

With her admirable grace and aura, as well as her likeable persona, Jill Goodacre also made a mark in the entertainment industry as an actress. She is married to Harry Connick Jr. Here are other facts about her.

Jill Goodacre – Bio, Age

Jill Goodacre was born on March 29, 1964, in Lubbock, Texas USA to William Goodacre, a real estate broker and Glenna Maxey Goodacre, a renowned sculptor. She was raised in Boulder, Colorado along with her brother, Tim.

Following in her parents’ footsteps, she also took on the path to excellence and fame. Armed with her gorgeous figure and ethereal beauty, added to her education, she entered the modelling arena in the 1980s and was soon blazing the trail. She was one of Victoria’s Secret’s first models along with Stephanie Seymour and Frederique. As such, she featured in all of their early advertisements, catalogues, and retail store advertising and served as the face of the brand as it grew throughout the 80s. She modelled hosiery, swimwear, and lingerie for their catalogue and remained one of their top models in the ’80s through the early 1990s.

With her modelling empire growing, Jill Goodacre was sought after by other magazines and became the face for a number of them including Sports Illustrated, Self, YN, Harper’s Bazaar, Sassy, and Cosmopolitan. Goodacre became a household name and the first model to earn celebrity status just by appearing in Victoria’s Secret catalogue.

On the heels of her career in the industry, she tested the deep waters of acting. First, she appeared on the David Letterman show and went on to a moderately successful acting career. In 1994, she made a guest appearance as herself on the American sitcom Friends in The One With The Blackout episode with Matthew Perry.

Since then, she has featured in various television series both in acting and voice roles including the animated sitcom Duckman, Simply Mad About the Mouse, Play for Today, The Nation’s Health, Odd Jobs, Worlds Beyond, and The Uninvited. Besides acting, she is also credited as a director. In 1993, Goodacre directed her husband’s live performance videos Harry Connick Jr.: The New York Big Band Concert and has appeared in several of his music videos as well.

Jill Goodacre has an estimated net worth of $5 million. Despite her modelling days being far behind her, Jill has made so much and has also garnered a whole lot from her acting stint.

Goodacre’s father was from Boulder while her mother, Genna is a native of Lubbock, but now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. After her parents divorced, her mother married a Dallas attorney, C.L. Mike Schmidt in 1995.

At the height of her modelling career, Jill Goodacre was in a party in 1990 where she met Harry Connick Jr., the man who would become her husband four years later. Harry was then popular as New Orleans-bred big band crooner who repopularized Gershwin on the soundtrack of When Harry Met Sally. His song Jill on his BlLight, Red Light album is about her.

Connick Jr. is an award-winning musician, a composer, actor, and television host and has sold over 28 million records as well as appeared in movies such as Hope Floats with Sandra Bullock. He was a member of the judging team on American Idol with Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban and has his own talk show known as Harry.

The duo tied the knot in a Catholic ceremony at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans on April 16, 1994. They are parents to three beautiful daughters: Georgia Tatum born in 1996, Sarah Kate born in 1997, and Charlotte, born in 2002. The family lives in New Canaan, Connecticut and also in New Orleans, Louisana.

Height, Weight

In October 2012, Goodacre was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent two surgeries including a lumpectomy. She took Tamoxifen, an estrogen modulator for five years after things started looking good again.

The pills sent her into menopause including weight gain. For someone who was known to have a perfect physique, becoming rounder and heavier was indeed too much of a fact to handle. Although the condition took a toll on her self-esteem as it could do to anyone, she took it gracefully.

She is 5′ 8″ (1.73 m) tall and has a weight currently fixed at 128 lb (58 kg).
