To begin with, Jill was raised in Los Angeles in the family of the restaurant host Edward Oppenheim and his wife Betty Goldberg. The mother was responsible for Jill’s education and career opportunities, and in order to acquire a full education, Jill attended ballet school, in which she also studied with the future actresses Natalie Wood and Stefanie Powers. At age six, Jill had a role in a radio play, then at nine, she made her debut landing a role in the movie “A Christmas Carol” (1949). The same year appeared in the series “Sandy Dreams”, when her mother, caring for daughter’s career, decided that the surname Oppenheimer wasn’t suitable for the actress, thus Jill became Saint John at the age of 11. Later, Jill appeared in several episodes of the television show “The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show” (1951), and being 14 years old, she graduated from Hollywood Professional School. She matriculated at the UCLA Extension School in 1955. Two years later, Jill signed a contract with the film studio Universal Pictures and decided to give up her studies, focusing on her career.

Concerning her professional career, the first film she appeared in was the comedy “Summer Love” (1958). Later, she starred in the films “The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker” (1959), “Holiday for Lovers” (1959), “The Lost World” (1960), “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone” (1961), “Tender Is the Night” (1962), “Who’s Been Sleeping in My Bed?” (1963) and “Honeymoon Hotel” (1964). It is worth saying that for her role in the film “Come Blow Your Horn” (1963) Jill was nominated for a Golden Globe; in this film, as well as in “Tony Rome” (1967), she played alongside Frank Sinatra. Jill’s career on the big screen was a success – she was praised by critics as well as loved by audiences, which did her net worth no harm at all.

In 1966, she starred in the television series “Batman”. In 1971, she became the first American Bond girl that played in the film “Diamonds Are Forever” opposite Sean Connery. In 1972, she left Hollywood and moved to Aspen, subsequently appearing less frequently on screens. At that time, she became interested in cooking and eventually became quite known as a lead in the section of food of television show “Good Morning America”. She published the book “The Jill St. John Cookbook”. In addition to these activities, she got engaged in gardening (cultivation of orchids) and created angora knitwear business. However, she also created roles in television series “Magnum P.I.”, “The Love Boat”, “Burke’s Law”, “Fantasy Island”, “Seinfeld” and others, but acting in her life became no longer so important and more episodic.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, she has married four times. Her first husband was Neil Dubin (1957–1958), the second – Lance Reventlow (1960–1963), the third – Jack Jones (1967–1969) and the fourth – Robert Wagner (1990–present). She has no children of her own, but three stepdaughters.
