Josie Maran Biography

Josie Maran was born in northern California on May 8, 1978. She is of Russian, Polish, Dutch, French, and German decent. When Maran was only 12, she went to a barbecue, where a woman asked her to be in a San Francisco fashion show. A modeling agent at the show saw her and encouraged her to begin modeling. After graduating from Castilleja School (a private, all girls, college prep school) in Palo Alto, she turned her focus to modeling full-time.

At 17, Maran was signed with the Elite modeling agency of Los Angeles. After teaming up with Elite, she soon appeared on her first cover with Glamour magazine in 1998, and became the featured Guess? Girl in the Summer and Fall 1998 campaigns.

In addition to modeling, Maran began building an acting resumé, appearing in more than 25 commercials and advertisements. One of her acting jobs was appearing in the popular music video for the Backstreet Boys titled "Everybody." The video gave Maran significant exposure and demand for her in the modeling world went up. Soon after shooting the video, Maran moved cross-country to join with Elite in New York City.

Maran continued building an impressive resume which now includes work for Marie Claire, Guess, and Victoria's Secret. Her annual appearance in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue has been very popular for three years in a row. Her most prestigious professional contract to date is with Maybelline International as their spokesmodel, where she has appeared in numerous ads and commercials.

In 2001, Maran moved from commercials to film playing the title character Mallory in an independent film, The Mallory Effect. She continued to take on roles, and in 2004, she landed the part of the French model in Little Black Book, and as one of Dracula's brides in Van Helsing.

In 2005, she was recruited by EA Games to appear as a main character in the street-racing computer and video game, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which was released on November 17, 2005. She plays the game's second lead Mia Townsend, who guides the lead character through the game.

Maran is currently living in Hawaii teaching children. She has recently taken up yoga, eating organic foods and she quit smoking. She has one child with her boyfriend, Lee Alialbozi.

"I'm really shallow when I come to guys. I only date really good looking, well-endowed guys, with great bodies. My friends are always going on at me. I'm like "I can't help it! I'm just a woman with high standards!"

"When I was younger, I wanted to be a sex therapist - a hipper Dr. Ruth. I've never had a boring conversation about sex. When you talk about sex, people come alive. My friends told me, `You know, guys are going to come to talk about their wives, but then they're going to want to sleep with you.' I figured I'd just wear a bag over my head."

"I don't believe in marriage. I just don't think it's necessary in this day and age. I just think if you get married and you're already trusting the person, why do you have to sign something to show your love? You just love."
