Brooklyn Decker Bio

After gracing the pages of top magazines for years, model Brooklyn Decker took the jump into acting, starting out with TV guest appearances on shows like Ugly Betty and Chuck and graduating to feature films, most recently Battleship. Find out more about Brooklyn Decker in her Kidzworld Bio!

Ohio Hottie

Brooklyn was born in Ohio, her mother is a nurse and her father is a pacemaker salesman. Her career in modeling began when she was a teenager and got spotted by a scout one day in shopping mall. She quickly landed the role of the face of Mauri Simone, a prom dress maker. This was a just as a jumping off point since she was later featured in all kinds of magazines and campaigns, including Teen Vogue,  Glamour, The Gap and Victoria’s Secret.  She is best known for her work modeling swimsuits for Sports Illustrated. Two months after she moved to New York she landed a spot in the 2006 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and not only came back the next year but also hosted their behind-the-scenes special.

Sports Sweetie

Brooklyn started making the transition from modeling to television when she signed on as a member of Sports New York to discuss the 2010 NCAA Basketball Tournament. She also guest starred on Chuck and Ugly Betty. She also returned to the Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Edition as the cover model in the same year, and she claims her mother was so happy she cried!

Battleship Beauty

Brooklyn received a big break in her acting career when it was announced she would be playing the female lead, Samantha Shane in Battleship, a movie based on the popular board game. Samantha Shane is the daughter of a naval officer who works as a physical therapist. Named one of “The Breakout Stars to Watch” by MTV in 2011, and also stars in What to Expect When You’re Expecting, based on the novel.

Things haven’t been entirely easy for Brooklyn though, she admitted in Self magazine that she suffered from an eating disorder, and her family stepped in to help her get back on a healthy track: "My father did an intervention and got me to stop obsessing about everyone else and wrecking my body."
