Bosworth starred in the television series Young Americans, in which she played Bella Banks, though the series was not picked up for another season. She became well known with a leading role in 2002`s Blue Crush. The following year, Bosworth played the teenage girlfriend of porn star John Holmes in Wonderland opposite Val Kilmer. In 2004, she portrayed Sandra Dee in Kevin Spacey`s Beyond the Sea. Bosworth since appeared in several notable films, including Superman Returns (2006), where she played Lois Lane, and 2008`s blackjack drama film 21.
In 2006, Bosworth made media headlines with a dramatically thinner appearance. She became part of a trend of young Hollywood actresses who have debuted thin bodies. The following year, however, photographs indicated that she went back to a healthy weight. In 2008, she became both Calvin Klein Jeans newest model and spokeswoman for Coach newest luxury bags. In her personal life, Bosworth has dated actors Matt Czuchry, from 2000 to 2002 , Orlando Bloom, from 2002 to 2006 and the English model turned singer-songwriter James Rousseau,from 2006 to 2009.
Bosworth was born January 2, 1983 in Los Angeles, California, the only child of Patricia (nï¿½e Potter), a homemaker, and Hal Bosworth, a former executive for Talbots. She was born with sectoral heterochromia, resulting in a hazel section at the bottom of her right blue eye, while the left is completely blue.
After leaving San Francisco at the age of six, Bosworth`s family frequently moved around the country because of her father`s job.
She grew up mainly on the East Coast, spending the rest of her youth in Darien, Connecticut and Cohasset, Massachusetts.
Bosworth has always been interested in a professional career as a competitive horse racer and, by the age of fourteen, she was a champion equestrian.
While attending Cohasset High School from which she graduated in 2001, Bosworth learned to speak Spanish and was a member of the National Honor Society; she also played varsity soccer and lacrosse.
Bosworth`s first film role came after an open casting call in New York for the supporting part of Judith in the 1998 film, The Horse Whisperer. The film`s producers needed someone who was already an experienced horse rider, leading to Bosworth`s successful audition for the role.
The film received positive reception from film critics.
In 2000, she starred in the television series drama Young Americans, in which she played Bella Banks, a well-adjusted small town girl working at a gas station near an elite prep school. The series, however, was canceled. That same year, she had a small part in the film Remember the Titans.
In 2001, Bosworth moved to Los Angeles in hopes of obtaining easier access to auditions and better film parts.
The breakthrough role in Bosworth`s career came in the 2002 surfing movie Blue Crush, which she prepared for by working out with two separate trainers six hours a day for months in order to add fifteen pounds of muscle to her frame. In his review of the film, Rolling Stone`s Peter Travers wrote: "Bosworth is a star in the making, but even she can`t outshine the surfing footage, which is flat-out spectacular." The film received positive reviews and grossed $40 million at the United States box office.
Following the success of Blue Crush, Bosworth took on roles in the indie films The Rules of Attraction (2002), and a darker turn in Wonderland (2003) opposite Val Kilmer, where she played the teenage girlfriend of porn star John Holmes.
In 2004 she played the lead role in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, opposite Topher Grace and Josh Duhamel.
The film was critically and financially unsuccessful.
Also in 2004, Bosworth depicted actress Sandra Dee in Beyond the Sea. Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle, in review of the film, commented that Kevin Spacey, who played actor Bobby Darin, and Bosworth`s courting is "unsettling".
The movie received mixed reception, and was a box office disappointment.
The following year, Bosworth portrayed Chali, a Hare Krishna, in the film adaptation of Myla Goldberg`s novel Bee Season (2005), about a dysfunctional Jewish family. She has appeared in several Revlon ads and ranked as number 60 in FHM`s "100 Sexiest Women in the World 2005" list.
For two years running, she has placed on the Maxim Hot 100 List '“ number 38 in 2005 and number 8 in 2006.
After going through many screen tests and competing with other actresses for the role, she was cast as reporter Lois Lane in Bryan Singer`s superhero film Superman Returns (2006).
She starred along with her Beyond the Sea co-star Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, as well as newcomer Brandon Routh as Superman.
The film was a box office success
