At 40 years old, Kate Bosworth has this physical status:
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 producers needed someone who was an experienced horse rider, and Bosworth won the role. The film got a positive reception from film critics. In 2000, she starred in the television series drama Young Americans as Bella Banks, but it was canceled. That year she had a small part in the film Remember the Titans. In 2001, she moved to Los Angeles to seek better film parts.
Bosworth's breakthrough role came in the 2002 surfing movie Blue Crush. She prepared for the role by working with two trainers seven hours a day for months, adding 15 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. Bosworth then took on the lead role in the low-budget Wonderland (2003) opposite Val Kilmer. She played the teenage girlfriend of porn star John Holmes.
In 2004, she played the lead role in romantic comedy Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!, opposite Topher Grace. It was critically and financially unsuccessful. Also in 2004, she portrayed actress Sandra Dee in Beyond the Sea. Reviews were mixed, and it was a box office failure, though Bosworth's performance received critical acclaim. The next year, she portrayed Chali, a Hare Krishna, in the film adaptation of Myla Goldberg's novel Bee Season (2005), about a dysfunctional Jewish family.
Bosworth was cast as reporter Lois Lane in Bryan Singer's film Superman Returns (2006), which also starred her Beyond the Sea co-star Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, and newcomer Brandon Routh as Superman. It was a box office success and received mostly positive reviews. Bosworth's performance however, was not well received; Anthony Lane of The New Yorker wrote: "The new Lois Lane, Kate Bosworth, is not a patch on Margot Kidder, or, for that matter, on Teri Hatcher, in the TV series." San Francisco Chronicle film critic Mick LaSalle felt that Bosworth, at age 22, was too young to portray Lane, and that the climax did not "match the potential of the tiring 154 minute long film". Although Bosworth's performance was ambivalently received, she loved working on the movie. As she told Teen Vogue in August 2006, "You know how you have an experience, a time in your life when you feel you've come into your own? When you grow up a bit, and think, Now I get it? [...] That's how I feel. I feel a little bit more complete." She was eventually nominated for worst supporting actress at the Razzie Awards for the part. The movie grossed $52 million on its opening weekend in North America and went on to earn $391 million worldwide.
Bosworth starred as Louise in the psychological drama The Girl in the Park with Sigourney Weaver, Alessandro Nivola and Keri Russell, written and directed by Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn in his directorial debut. It premiered at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival, and was subsequently picked up by The Weinstein Company. Alissa Simon of Variety wrote that Bosworth "tries her best, but her character's too extremely drawn." Bosworth also filmed 21, an adaptation of the book Bringing Down the House, in early 2007 in Boston, Massachusetts and Las Vegas, Nevada, reuniting with co-star Kevin Spacey and director Robert Luketic. It garnered mixed reviews, with Joanne Kaufman of the Wall Street Journal concluding, "Very little adds up in 21."
In 2006, she optioned the film rights to Catherine Hanrahan's novel Lost Girls and Love Hotels and was set to produce the project with filmmaker Nadia Connors. As of 2016, the project was at a standstill. In 2010, she starred in The Warrior's Way, shot in New Zealand with Korean actor Jang Dong-gun and Geoffrey Rush. It was one of 2010's biggest box-office flops, grossing only slightly more than $11,000,000 worldwide against its $42 million budget. Bosworth has said about her roles, "I just don't do comfort zones."
In January 2008, Bosworth was named the new face of Calvin Klein Jeans and appeared in their ad campaigns. She also became the spokesperson for the American luxury bag brand Coach in Asia.
In 2011, Bosworth contracted to sing the television jingle for Cotton Incorporated's "Fabric of My Life" advertisement. On December 4, 2012, Topshop revealed that she was the "secret" woman in the new Topshop Christmas Adverts.
Bosworth designed a jewelry line with friend and celebrity stylist Cher Coulter called JewelMint, which launched in October 2010. The first vertical venture of MySpace co-founder Josh Berman and Diego Berdakin's social commerce company, BeachMint features designs by Coulter and Bosworth.
In 2012 Bosworth was the face of skincare brand SK-II.
She appeared in ten films between 2011 and 2014, moving away from the big-budget Superman franchise into lower-budget film roles like Still Alice with Julianne Moore. The short film Lov, filmed in Slovenia, featured her and launched fashion designer Vanessa Bruno’s Fall 2011 campaign.
In 2013, Bosworth was cast in the horror film Before I Wake directed by Mike Flanagan; it was released on Netflix in 2017.
In she was cast in the post-apocalyptic horror film The Domestics released on June 28, 2018.
In September 2018, it was announced that Bosworth would have the main role of KC on the Netflix science-fiction miniseries The I-Land. It was released on September 12, 2019. That year, she was cast in the sci-fi thriller Genesis.
Safe to say Justin Long’s relationship with Kate Bosworth is going very well!
Back in January, we heard that the two actors had struck up a romance after meeting on set of a new film in 2021. (Kate announced her split from husband Michael Polish later that same year.) The couple has kept their relationship on the down-low for the most part, though Justin did reference a “girlfriend” who is fond of pineapple on pizza during his podcast Life is Short.
“The Supreme Court alone cannot forever put to rest the idea of a constitutional right to abortion. The Court has a lot of power, but so do the American people, and the people still have a lot more to say.” I have never felt so heartbroken, so angry, so violated, upset, and disturbed - as I have over this clear and deliberate repulsive abusive of power. In this moment of darkness, I hold on to the universal truth that all things change - and they will. Grief can be transformative. Rage can turn to action. Find hope in michelleobama ‘s words, as I have: “When we don’t understand our history, we are doomed to repeat its mistakes. In this country, our futures are tied together in a delicate tapestry that we each have a hand in making. Too often, cynicism or indifference makes us feel like we don’t have a say in weaving it, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The more we allow pessimism to push us further into helplessness, the less we will be empowered to help create the kind of country we want to live in. This moment is difficult, but our story does not end here. It may not feel like we are able to do much right now, but we can. And we must.” *If you would like to donate to abortion funds, please consider: abortionfunds.org
