Following her brief career as a model, actress Amy Smart gained almost immediate notice for her supporting turns in the hit teen films "Varsity Blues" (1999) and "Outside Providence" (1999). But it was her more risqué appearance in the teen sex romp "Road Trip" (2000) that exposed the young actress to a wider audience. Though mainly remembered in that film for her topless scene, Smart nonetheless made a name for herself. She used the exposure to her advantage, landing more prominent dramatic roles in features and on television, including "Scotland, PA" (2001) and "The Battle of Shaker Heights" (2003) - the latter of which also included being on "Project Greenlight" (HBO, 2001-05). Not just another pretty face, Smart managed to avoid being typecast as the blonde-haired bombshell by moving across varied genres. She easily moved from romantic comedies like "Just Friends" (2005) to high-action thrillers like "Crank" (2006), while also shaking things up with the television heist drama "Smith" (CBS, 2006), assuring that Smart would maintain a long career for years to come.
