Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The always elegant Alexis Bledel proved that Hollywood actresses did not always have to be caught up with paparazzi and partying. The petite and preppy star completed a year as a film major at NYU but had to put her studies on hold after getting cast as Rory in the long-running drama "Gilmore Girls" (WB, 2000-07). Bledel also showed big screen star power, taking on the role of Lena Kaligaris in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (2005) and its 2008 sequel, based on the best-selling novels of Ann Brashares. If Paris Hilton dominated one end of the young Hollywood spectrum, it was a no-brainer that Bledel ruled the other with her naturally born talent, sophisticated taste and intellectual demeanor.
