Kate Bosworth was born on 2nd January 1983 in Los Angeles to parents Hal and Patti Bosworth, Kate and famhly soon moved to San Francisco followed by a diversion to Connecticut before settling in Cohasset, MA in 1997.
As much as she enjoyed the experience and looked forward to more acting work, Bosworth wisely took time of to finish high school - as a member of the National Honor Society, no less - before pursuing her career full time.
As Anne Marie, a devout surfer living in Hawaii with her two best friends, Bosworth displayed exceptional commitment to the role by adding pounds of muscle and training relentlessly in preparation for the film. Although the movie's plot took a backseat to the exotic local and intense surfing footage, Bosworth nonetheless managed to shine through as a talent to watch.
Based on a true story, the film once again paired her with her friend and admirer Spacey and despite mixed reviews, managed to cash in at the box office. After a two-year absence from the screen, Bosworth resurfaced in the long-delayed Cowboy-Ninja hybrid "The Warrior's Way" (2010), co-starring Geoffrey Rush and martial arts action star Jang Dong Gun.
