When she was 14, Kate Bosworth was a champion equestrian. Helped in part because of her equestrian skills, her first role was as Judith in The Horse Whisperer. Other roles followed, including Young Americans and Remember the Titans, but it was probably the 2002 surfing movie Blue Crush that put her on the map. She worked out with two trainers six hours a day to add fifteen pounds of muscle to her frame. Kate Bosworth told askmen.com, I havent surfed in so long either. Fans of Blue Crush are so disappointed in me to hear that. They come up to me and are so excited to talk surfing. The best I can do is say, I loved doing it then. I always feel Im letting them down.

Kate Bosworth raised eyebrows and concern when people thought she was anorexic following her break-up with Orlando Bloom. She said, I was concerned for my health. It was a very dark time in my life.
Recently, Kate Bosworth has made the news less for her roles and more of her dating life. She said, Ive concentrated on not playing the same character twice, so in a sense its a tougher road to hoe because youre constantly experimenting in different areas and I think people really like it when youre in one category its just easier for more people to get their head around. I love doing the bigger films, I love doing the grittier, more intimate indies, whether its Superman Returns to a movie like Wonderland or Beyond the Sea or the film I just did with Michael [Polish], which is called Big Sur (kate-bosworth.org).
