Tilly: Start with your Simpsons money, use a little girl voice, and take them for everything they've got! Now, I'm needed on the set of Bride of Chucky 5.

Jennifer Tilly (born September 16, 1958) is a Canadian actress best known for such movies as Bound (1996), Bride of Chucky, and Liar Liar, as well as being the voice of Bonnie (Joe Swanson's wife who was pregnant until season seven — and yes, that includes the years that the show was canceled) on Family Guy, and being really good at poker.

Earned her sole Academy Award nomination for Bullets Over Broadway.


This actress contains examples of:

  • Guttural Growler: That gravelly/ditzy combo is cinematic gold. Similar to Cathy Moriarty (from another generation), she's another fine example of Vocal Dissonance.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Most, if not all, of her roles are this. The best known are the the lesbian Femme Fatale Violet in Bound (1996) and Tiffany, the lover of the killer doll Chucky in Bride of Chucky'' (when she's human anyway). Her deep raspy voice probably helps too.
  • Motor Mouth: She says on the Bride of Chucky DVD Commentary that she's very talkative, causing Don Mancini and Brad Dourif to laugh.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Compare the murderous doll Tiffany in Child's Play films and the bitchy Samantha Cole in Liar Liar to the real Tilly, who has traces of Cloud Cuckoolander and Genki Girl in real life.
  • Nom de Mom: Although she was born Jennifer Chan, she professionally uses her mother's maiden name, Tilly.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Her reputation does her more favors than her cleavage ever could. There were a couple of videos that were fairly popular in the Poker community where she's playing incredibly foolishly, but then she got better and was able to take advantage of people misjudging her.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks pretty incredible for a 59 year old.
