While Paige Butcher can proudly say she made a name for herself before she became linked to legendary American comedian Eddie Murphy, the Australian beauty certainly has their relationship to thank for her newfound worldwide popularity – something that she has been unable to get accustomed with as she now lives a very private life to avoid intrusion. Read on to find out more about her career before their relationship and how she began dating the father of her two children.
Paige Butcher – Biography (Age)
Ms. Butcher, whose birth name is Jacinta Paige Butcher, was born on the 6th of October, 1979 in Perth, Western Australia, Australia. She is one of two daughters to her parents – Robert Butcher, a popular Australian model, and a mother, whose name is not known but is said to be also equally famous as a fashion designer.
Thanks to her parents’ careers in the fashion world and the lifestyle they were able to provide for her while she was growing up, Butcher from a very young age desired to follow in their footsteps, first becoming a model and then ultimately having a career as an actress. After completing her education from Santa Maria Catholic College, she went on to start modeling, booking various photoshoots as she also auditioned for various acting roles.
Soon after Paige Butcher entered the modeling world, her beauty and talent began to receive wide attention. Thanks to the exposure she received on that end, she was able to finally make her film acting debut, albeit a small role, in Something’s Gotta Give (2003) which also featured heavyweight Hollywood actors like Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton, and Keanu Reeves.
In the following years, Butcher continued to make her name in the modeling world. One of her more notable features around the time was appearing in a swimsuit video for Maxim Magazine called Maxim the Real Swimsuit DVD Vol. 2 in 2015. The next year, she landed her second acting role in Martin Lawrence‘s comedy movie Big Momma’s House 2 (2006).
Following her appearance in Big Momma’s House 2, Paige Butcher has been unable to land any other acting gig. She has since then fully turned her attention to modeling where she has achieved some level of success.
Several sources have estimated that Paige Butcher’s net worth is $780,000. The Aussie beauty was able to make bank thanks mostly to her career on the runway, as she was only able to land small acting roles during her very short acting career. Her net worth is expected to grow in coming years as her modeling career continues to thrive.
