Before this messy-haired girl would grow up to star in movies alongside big names like Heath Ledger, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Damon and Jennifer Lopez … she began hustling in showbiz at age 11.
She landed her first film gig in 1996 before becoming a sensation in a 1999 teen flick you definitely don't hate. The role earned her an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Female Performance.
Two years later … she'd dance her way to winning a Teen Choice Award.
Over the next 18 years, she'd costar in Oscar-winning movies as well as action franchises and acclaimed TV shows … and she also appears in this summer's latest blockbuster with a women-led cast.
