Born January 2, 1983, in Los Angeles, California, Catherine Ann Bosworth spent most of her childhood traveling throughout the United States, including San Francisco, Connecticut and Massachusetts. An award-winning equestrian, her big break came about in 1998 during a casting call for Robert Redford's The Horse Whisperer. Kate Bosworth figured that attending an audition would be a great experience, and the fact that the film focused on horses gave her that extra push to go ahead and attend the casting call. With little more than a role in a community theater production of Annie to her credit, Kate was a natural and charmed her way into the supporting role of Judith, the female lead's best friend, but not before leaving the producers with her impromptu headshot -- a picture of Kate from a Christmas family portrait.
Anyone who has seen the poster for Blue Crush can understand why she is famous. With five feature films under her belt by age 19, including The Newcomers and Remember The Titans, Kate Bosworth was well on her way to becoming a Hollywood A-list contender. She followed those roles up with Superman Returns (2006), The Girl In The Park (2007), and several '08 flicks like 21, Laundry Warrior and Veronika Decides To Die.
