Kate Bosworth's Beginnings

Catherine Anne Bosworth was born in Los Angeles, California, but spent a large part of her childhood living all over the United States. Kate and the Bosworth family have lived in San Francisco, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Kate Bosworth loved riding horses, and by the age of 14 she was a champion equestrian. She also liked acting and singing which led her to participating in community theater and singing at local fairs.

Kate Bosworth - Horses, TV and Surfing

Kate Bosworth heard of a casting call for girls around her age that could ride horses so she attended an open audition in New York and used a family Christmas card photo as her headshot. The movie was a big Hollywood deal called The Horse Whisperer and it starred both director Robert Redford and [kwlink]Scarlett Johannson[/kwlink]. Kate Bosworth scored the part of Judith, a young rider who gets killed in an awful riding accident. After that, Kate took a little time off from acting to be a regular teenager, but was back on the small screen in 2000 in the short-lived NBC series Young Americans. Kate soon decided she'd have better luck with the big screen and snagged a role in Remember the Titans and The Newcomers. Her breakthrough role came when she played the lead in the all-girl surf movie called Blue Crush. She went on to Win a Date with Tad Hamilton and Beyond the Sea with Kevin Spacey. This summer Kate suits up as Lois Lane and joins newcomer Brandon Routh in Superman Returns.

Kate Bosworth and Orlando Bloom

Kate Bosworth's love life has scored even more attention than her movie roles - but that's what happens when you date an elf/pirate. Kate has been dating Orlando Bloom, otherwise known as Legolas in The Lord of the Rings, or Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean. Despite announcing that they had split up in February 2005 because of their conflicting schedules, this headlining couple is always being spotted in public together. Hmm... are they or aren't they?
