A complete novice when she burst onto the Hollywood scene as a teen, Bosworth won a supporting role in Robert Redford's 1998 drama The Horse Whisperer because of her equestrian background. It took a few more projects and four more years before she landed the breakout role of a spunky surfer in Blue Crush, charming critics with her spirited performance. While gaining credibility in indie films (as a porn star's underage lover in Wonderland) she also courted the teen set in the romantic comedy Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! Her star got a big boost when she snagged the part of Lois Lane in the highly anticipated Superman Returns, and had her image splashed globally in ads for Calvin Klein jeans.
