The breakthrough role in Bosworth’s career came in the 2002 surfing movie Blue Crush, which she prepared for by working out with two separate trainers seven hours a day for months in order to add fifteen 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. Following the success of Blue Crush, Bosworth took on the lead role in low-budget Wonderland (2003) opposite Val Kilmer. Bosworth played the teenage girlfriend of porn star John Holmes.
