Hottest Jane Russell Bikini Picture Which Are Incredibly Bewitching. Veteran actress Jane Russell was born as Ernestine Jane Geraldine Russell on 21st June 1921 to Roy William Russell and Geraldine Jacobi.
Very few actors can claim to have the best of both looks and artistic talent and Jane Russell is certainly one amongst them. Blessed with a voluptuous figure, Russell was one of the leading actresses and sex symbols of the mid-20th century. She made the men go weak in their knees with her full-figured body and alluring and fascinating sex appeal.
Having an affinity for drama and music, it was her mother who coaxed her to take a plunge into the world of acting. Cinema happened accidentally to her as she was spotted by Howard Hughes on a reality show.
Strangely, her big break came in the most bizarre of situations when she was picked by director Howard Hughes as the winner of the nationwide chest hunt for a figuratively suitable leading lady for his upcoming film. Subsequently, she signed a seven-year contract with Hughes.
She made her debut in 1943 with the motion picture, ‘The Outlaw’ which was released to a limited audience. The film did much to showcase her voluptuous figure and deep cleavage that rubbed the censor board on the wrong side. Nevertheless, the film finally witnessed a wide release in 1946.
Right after her first film, she gained a national star status for her busty, full-figured, and bodacious self. She gained much fame than her contemporaries who envied her voluptuous figure which was a treat to watch out for, for the men of that era.
Thereafter, she starred in several other movies – from comedy to thriller to drama. Her big break came with ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’, where she co-starred with Marilyn Monroe. The film was followed by a sequel, ‘Gentlemen Marry Brunettes’. Apart from her acting talent, Russell made her mark as a singer by giving voice to her musical aspirations.
She sung various singles and also came up with a self-titled album. Meanwhile, some of the other films that she worked on early in her career include the gangster drama ‘His Kind of Women’ and sultry smuggling thriller ‘Macao’. Both the films were opposite Robert Mitchum. In 1951, she was cast in the comedy ‘Double Dynamite’.
In 1952, she appeared in the film ‘The Las Vegas Story’. The same year, she appeared in a cameo role in the film, ‘Road to Bali’ and in the films ‘Montana Belle’ and ‘Son of Paleface’. 1955 was a busy year for this talented actress as four of her films were slated to be released in the year including ‘Underwater!’, ‘Foxfire’, ‘The tall Men’, and ‘Gentlemen Marry Brunettes’.

The latter was a sequel to her earlier film, ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’. In 1956, she acted in the films, ‘Hot Blood’ and ‘The Revolt of Mamie Stover’, both of which showcased her talent as a fine actress.
In 1959, she came up with her self-titled solo LP on MGM Records. She followed this up by four more movies titled, ‘Johnny Reno’, ‘Waco’, ‘Born Losers’ and ‘Darker than Amber’. She breathed her last at her home on 28th February 2011 due to respiratory-related illness.
