Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentAntoinette Kalaj Bio – Smartasses Magazine Antoinette Nikprelaj (born September 20, 1986) is an American actress and model. Kalaj was born and raised in the Bronx, New York, the eldest of four children to Albanian immigrant parents. She graduated from Troy-Athens High School, near Detroit, and attended Oakland College, where she studied law and medicine. Kalaj has also been classically trained in opera.

Due to Michigan’s sizable Albanian population, Kalaj’s family moved her father’s construction business to Troy, Michigan when she was eleven. She began modeling as a teen, prior to college, after a modeling scout approached her and strongly suggested she attend an upcoming model search. After landing a modeling job with The Limited at age seventeen, Kalaj went into acting after the 2008 Michigan film incentives started drawing more productions to the state. Her first acting role came as the lead in a big budget sci-fi thriller, for which she trained for seven months in marksmanship with the Detroit SWAT team, as well as in krav-maga self-defense to prepare for the role. However, production of the movie eventually ceased due to film incentives being cut. Her first acting appearance came in 2010, on the television series Hung. Later, in 2011, Kalaj appeared as a mermaid in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides alongside Johnny Depp. Afterwards, Kalaj signed with a talent agency and moved to Los Angeles full time, and in 2011, she appeared in the film Exit 33. That same year, she also guest starred on the hit CW show, Gossip Girl, alongside Elizabeth Hurley, Taylor Momsen and Jessica Szohr. In 2013, Kalaj landed her next roles in the film Don Jon with Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Riddick opposite Vin Diesel. In 2014, she played the lead alongside Billy Zane in the indie film Mining for Ruby, and also had a part in the action film Ninja Apocalypse, where she performed the majority of her own stunts. In 2015, Kalaj booked the lead in the indie film La Migra alongside Michael Copon and Marco Rodriguez. In 2016, Kalaj starred in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 opposite Megan Fox, as well as Chronically Metropolitan, starring Shiloh Fernandez, Ashley Benson, and Chris Noth.

As a model, Kalaj has done national commercials for M&M’s, Carl’s Jr., Progressive, WSOP, and Miller. She has also booked national modeling campaigns for Gillette, Coors Light, Crocs, Sports Illustrated, Bare Minerals, Carl’s Jr., and Ray Ban.

In addition to her acting career, Kalaj has an affinity for custom cars, and as a previous owner of Auto Body Customs Shops in Detroit, she spent much of her time modifying cars for players from the Detroit Pistons, Detroit Lions and other local celebrities. Some of her designs have been profiled in the esteemed DUB Shows and Auto Shows across the United States. Her nickname is Neta. Kalaj made news in 2011, when Philadelphia Phillies outfielder John Mayberry Jr. had his agent contact her agency in an effort to set up a romantic date, which Kalaj declined.

Why we think she’s hot:

Way back in good old twenty-eleven, seeing as how all she was doing was playing yet another magpie amongst all of the other chit-chatty Cathy’s on Gossip Girl, and swimming near stranger tides while Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz received all of the attention, you may not have noticed the sumptuous gal formerly known as Antoinette Nikprelaj on your radar– but we sure did. Which actually, makes it rather poetic that Miss Antoinette eventually went on to star in 2016’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, alongside Megan Fox, because exactly one decade earlier, it was Miss Megan who blipped on our sonar screen and showed up in our inaugural Top 100— a full year before she bleeped on anyone else’s screen, after taking the world by storm in an… wait for it… epic motion picture reboot of a 1980’s afternoon children’s cartoon. Seems as if Mr. Symmetry is about to get busy.
