Angela Jones is an American actress. She was born in Greensburg, Pennsylvania then raised in Jeannette, Pennsylvania where she graduated in 1986. Both towns are located approximately 25 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. She is a graduate of Point Park College in Pittsburgh.[1]

While attending graduate school at the Oslo Conservatory of Performing Arts in Sarasota, Florida,[2] Jones was cast in the short film Curdled (1991), directed by Reb Braddock.[3] Quentin Tarantino was impressed with Jones' performance and created the role of Esmerlda Villalobos for her in Pulp Fiction, inspired by her earlier role.[4] Tarantino then executive produced a 1996 remake of Curdled, again starring Jones.[5]

In Slash's 2007 biography Slash, it was mentioned that while recording the soundtrack for the film Curdled, he had a huge crush on her and the two had a short-lived relationship.[citation needed] Jones was the inspiration for Slash's song "Obsession" that he wrote for the Curdled soundtrack, with Slash stating the he and his band were fascinated by her after seeing her in Pulp Fiction.[6]
