Leila Arcieri 's Biography
Leila C. Arcieri was born December 18, 1973 in San Francisco, California to an Italian American father and an African-American mother.
Leila spent the better part of her childhood in Sebastopol, located in California's wine and redwood country. Shyness was a major obstacle in Leila's early life, one that she tried to overcome by throwing herself into high-school cheerleading.
Upon graduating from high school, she moved to San Francisco, where she dabbled with both graphic design and photography before becoming a make-up artist.
She was crowned Miss San Francisco in 1997, and soon after she began appearing in both commercials (including 1-800-COLLECT and Starburst) and music videos with the likes of Boyz II Men, and Q-Tip. Such work eventually brought her to the attention of writer-producer Timothy Stack, who cast her in the role of Jamaica St. Croix in his series, Son of the Beach, a parody of Baywatch.
That same year Leila was selected as the Coors Lite Beer 2000 spokesmodel. She reprised her role in XXX for the Director's Cut release in a short film containing the death of Xander.
In 2005, she was voted #65 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list. She dated actor Jamie Foxx from 2004 to 2005. In an interview with Female First, Foxx said that he liked the idea of settling down with Arcieri, but thought marriage "seemed unnatural."
