Jules Asner was born on February 14, 1968, and grew up in Tempe, Arizona. Asner was given the name Julie at birth, with her real last name unknown to the public. Asner was her married name and although she is now divorced, she continues to use it.
She stood at 5’10” at age 11 and was discovered at a modeling convention in Scottsdale, Arizona at age 16. She left home a week later to sign with Elite Model Management and was soon off to modeling jobs in Europe and Asia.
After spending time modeling all over the world, Asner wanted to try something different. She settled in Los Angeles and enrolled at UCLA, obtaining a degree in political science and journalism. After short stints as a reporter for a local news show and a contributing reporter for several other shows, Jules joined E! Entertainment Television, as an entertainment news reporter and interviewer.
Jules soon replaced Eleanor Mondale as host of the Wild On… series, while Brooke Burke took the helm after Jules. Asner visited 25 different countries in the span of a year and a half on the show. She is now doing more reporting for E!, hosting movie premieres, covering film festivals, and doing celebrity press junket interviews. She is also host of E!’s interview show, Revealed.
In the future, Jules would like to devote more time to furthering her movie career, which for now contains one appearance of note in 2001’s Zoolander.
Asner now makes her home in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles.
