Kate Bosworth was born in Los
Angeles and moved with her parents to San Francisco at age 6, to
Connecticut at 9, and to Cohasset, Mass at 14. At this age she began her
acting career going on make her mark as an actual teen in a teen drama,
starring on The WB's "Young Americans" (2000). Bosworth presented the
casting directors for "The Horse Whisperer" with a Christmas card photo
in lieu of a professional headshot and landed her first acting role in
the 1998 romantic drama (credited as Catherine Bosworth), playing
Judith, the ill-fated best friend of the scarred young girl (Scarlet
Johansson) who brings together her mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) and the
titular hero (Robert Redford).
Following "The Horse Whisperer", she returned to her non-acting life,
attending high school and pursuing various athletic endeavors for
eighteen months in an effort to assure that work would not be the main
focus of the remaining years of her childhood. In 2000 She landed the
role of the bratty sister in the upcoming feature film "The Newcomers"
and the part of a football co-captain's girlfriend in the upcoming
Denzel Washington movie "Remember the Titans." Bosworth more recently
starred in the true-life crime drama "Wonderland." Her other film
credits include Roger Avary’s "The Rules of Attraction," the independent
feature "The Newcomers" and the acclaimed football drama "Remember the
Titans," for producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Bosworth also received praise
for her work in the television series "Young Americans" for the WB. In
2002, she had a star-making turn in John Stockwell’s "Blue Crush," in
which she played the central role of a competitive surfer trying to
conquer Hawaii’s daunting Pipeline.
That same year, she also appeared in the ensemble cast of writer-director
Roger Avary's edgy film adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis' potboiler "The
Rules of Attraction," which center on the sexcapades of 1980s-era
collegians. After both roles, Bosworth was poised to lay claim to the
title of the latest Hollywood "It" girl and her face graced dozens of
magazine covers seemingly overnight.
She is a champion equestrian and plays Varsity soccer and lacrosse. She
has been accepted to Princeton University, but she has repeatedly
deferred her acceptance probably for the sake of movie production. Her
eyes are two different colors: Hazel and Blue.
