Loved and disparaged for her forthright persona and fierce activism, Jameela Jamil's acting career has been a concurrent stint alongside Jamil's persistent fight against patriarchy and the misleading privileged snoots of the showbiz industry. Amongst a slew of celebrities who had to bear the brunt of Jamil's sharp mouth are Cardi B, the Kardashians, Miley Cyrus, Rihana, and more.  

Jameela Alia Jamil was born on February 25, 1986, in London, England. Having overcome life's greatest tribulations, including congenital disabilities, Coeliac disease, and anorexia nervosa that followed her into her teenage years and early 20s, Jamil's relentless advocacy stems from the actress's trials-filled life. Since rising to fame with NBC's The Good Place, Jamil has been with one man.

This is absolutely not how I wanted it to come out," wrote Jamil. While many weren't convinced of Jamil's eligibility for the role, the actress told off the haters saying, "you can keep your opinions to yourself."
