Kate Bosworth (born Catherine Ann Bosworth on January 2,
1983) is an American actress. After appearing in 1998's The Horse
Whisperer, Bosworth became well known with a leading role in 2002's
Blue Crush, and has since appeared in several notable films. She
will portray Lois Lane in the upcoming film Superman Returns.
Bosworth was born in Los Angeles, California to Hal Bosworth (an
executive for Talbot) and Patricia Potter (a homemaker). After leaving
San Francisco at the age of six, she grew up mainly on the East
Coast, spending the rest of her youth in Darien, Connecticut and
Cohasset, Massachusetts. Bosworth was born with heterochromia, which
resulted in the iris of her right eye having two different colors:
hazel and blue. Her left eye is completely blue.
While in high school, 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. At age fourteen, Bosworth was a already champion
equestrian, and successfully auditioned for the role. She subsequently
had a supporting part in the 2000 film Remember the Titans. In 2001,
Bosworth moved to Los Angeles in hopes of obtaining easier access
to auditions and better film parts. Her first leading role was in
2002's surfing movie, Blue Crush. The film received positive reviews
and grossed $40 million at the United States box office, allowing
Bosworth wider exposure to a mainstream audience.
Between 2002 and 2005, Bosworth appeared in a number of widely
released films. She starred as actress Sandra Dee in Beyond the
Sea and played the lead role in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, opposite
Josh Duhamel. Bosworth also portrayed Chali, a Hare Krishna, in
a film adaption of Myla Goldberg's acclaimed novel Bee Season, about
a dysfunctional Jewish family. She has appeared in several Revlon
ads and ranked as #60 in FHM's "100 Sexiest Women in the World
2005" list. For two years running, she has placed on the Maxim
magazine Hot 100 List--#38 in 2005 and #8 in 2006. She was also
number 2 on E!'s list of 2006's "Girls of Summer" list.
In 2005, Bosworth was cast as reporter Lois Lane in the new Superman
movie, Superman Returns, which is currently scheduled for release
on June 28, 2006. Her Beyond the Sea co-star, Kevin Spacey, who
also appears in Superman Returns, suggested Bosworth for the role
to director Bryan Singer.
Bosworth was admitted to Princeton University in 2000, but continues
to defer her attendance. She is also a member of the Appalachia
Bosworth previously dated actor Matt Czuchry, whom she met on the
set of their short-lived television series, Young Americans. She
