She was born on March 29, 1964 in Lubbock, Texas, but Goodacre grew up in Boulder, Colorado. Jill Goodacre’s age is 53, but she hardly looks it!

Building a Brand
Goodacre was very instrumental in the rise of Victoria’s Secret from a small business to the huge brand it has become today. She started off as mainly a lingerie and hosiery model for Victoria’s Secret, when it was still a relatively unknown brand that used to sell its garments through mail-order catalogs and retail stores in the 1980s. Goodacre and models like Stephanie Seymour helped grow the company into a giant in women’s lingerie, hosiery, swimwear, and clothing. No wonder she is an authority on modeling and has often guided and given career advice to young models. Along the way, she gained wealth along with name recognition, and today Jill Goodacre’s net worth is a cool $5.0 million.
Saying it Like it Is
Goodacre believes that people should be comfortable with their bodies and not succumb to other people’s opinions. She said in an interview with E! News, “I think every female should be happy in their own skin and if you see a curvy woman, that’s beautiful. I mean, you exude how you feel, and there should be no pressure to lose weight. I think that’s wrong, I really do.” Goodacre follows her own advice and has always been herself throughout all these years.
