McCarthy was educated at Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School, before going on to Southern Illinois University to study nursing and psychology. However, a lack of funds meant she had to drop out. To earn some money, McCarthy landed a chance to model for Playboy magazine and was Miss October 1993. She was eventually named 1994 Playmate of the Year. Following a relocation to Los Angeles, California, McCarthy landed some television host roles and also began picking up acting parts. Roles followed in various projects including BASEketball, Scream 3, Scary Movie 3, The Drew Carey Show and her own sitcom Jenny. She also continued modeling.McCarthy has one son, Evan Joseph, from her marriage to John Asher. In 2005, Evan was diagnosed with autism and McCarthy has become a high-profile activist in this field. She is also an author, writing successful books on pregnancy and motherhood.She has served as President of the Generation Rescue Foundation since 2008 and is also a member of its Board of Directors. She believes that vaccines cause autism in children and, as a result, has encouraged parental resistance to mandatory vaccination, especially against measles and whooping cough. As a leading spokesperson in the anti-vaccination movement, she has become a controversial public figure in recent years.
