Sara Rue (born January 26, 1979) is an American television actress. She is best known for the roles she played as Carmen Ferrara on the comedy-drama Popular and Claude Casey on the sitcom Less Than Perfect. She is also known as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. In 2011 she hosted The CW reality series Shedding for the Wedding. She currently has a recurring role in the comedy Rules of Engagement.


Early life

Sara Rue was born Sara Schlackman in New York City, the daughter of Joan Schlackman (née Rue), a municipal employee and former actress, and Marc Schlackman, a stage manager.[1] The elder of two daughters, she was raised in New York, where her parents were active in Broadway theatres. She began her acting career at the age of nine, appearing in the 1988 film Rocket Gibraltar as Kevin Spacey's daughter (and as the late Burt Lancaster's granddaughter). She also played a young Roseanne in the first meeting of Roseanne and Dan at a dance on the TV show Roseanne.


Rue won critical acclaim for her television series debut, starring in the comedy Grand, before going on to work on Phenom; Minor Adjustments; Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane; ER; The Division; and Popular.

She has appeared in several films (A Map of the World, Can't Hardly Wait, A Slipping Down Life, Idiocracy, Gypsy 83 and had a small part as a babysitter in Gore Verbinski's adaptation of The Ring), and so impressed director Michael Bay that a role was written into the movie Pearl Harbor for her. Rue briefly appeared in the 2006 Mike Judge film Idiocracy, in the role of the Attorney General.

In 2006, Rue starred in the stage musical Little Egypt with French Stewart, Jenny O'Hara, and Gregg Henry at The Matrix Theatre in Los Angeles.

Rue guest starred in Two and a Half Men as Berta's youngest daughter Naomi who is pregnant and, as the episode progresses, eventually has her baby on Charlie's couch. She had a stint on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, playing the character of Leonard Hofstadter's girlfriend, Stephanie for 3 episodes. Her first appearance on the show occurred on November 17, 2008.

In 2009, Rue appeared in the movies Man Maid and For Christ's Sake, both of which are in post production. Rue starred on the 2009 ABC show Eastwick. The show was based on the novel and movie The Witches of Eastwick.

In December of 2009 it was announced that Rue would be a new spokesperson for Jenny Craig. Her diet was successful, as she lost fifty pounds and subsequently ran a half-marathon.[2]

In October of 2010, Rue joined the cast of Rules of Engagement in a recurring role as Brenda, Jeff and Audrey's new surrogate.[3]

Personal life

Rue married director/writer/producer Mischa Livingstone in 2001. After six years, the couple divorced in 2007.[4] Rue married teacher[5] Kevin Price on May 21, 2011.[6]
