Kristin Elizabeth Cavallari was born January 14, 1987 in Denver Colorado.  The blonde actress stands at 5’2 and is nicknamed “Kris”.  She has one older brother.

When Kristin’s parents divorced, her father Dennis, moved to Laguna Beach, CA.  Her older brother moved with their father, while Kristin moved to Barrington, Illlinois to be with her mother.  Her mother remarried, and Kristin struggled to re-adjust to life with a stepfather and a stepbrother, so she opted to try out California with her father and brother.

Kristin enrolled in Santa Margarita High School in Laguna Beach.  After taking a Driver’s Education course at Laguna Beach High School, her father enrolled her there.

Two years later, MTV producers approached Kristin for casting of Laguna Beach: The Real OC. Kristin won producers over by playing up a love triangle between Kristin, boyfriend Stephen Colleti, and rival Lauren Conrad.  When asked who should be prom queen Kristin replied, “I don’t know, and I don’t care as long as it’s not Lauren Conrad.”  The love triangle served as the main plot for the first and second seasons of Laguna Beach.

After high school, Kristin moved to Los Angeles to attend Loyola Marymount University.  She passed up opportunities to appear on Laguna Beach‘s spin-off, theHills, starring arch rival Lauren Conrad, to pursue a serious acting career.  She managed to get a hosting job on UPN’s new series Get the Party Started. But the show failed to see any real success and was canceled after two episodes.  Next, Kristin landed a role on Veronica Mars, and various music videos like Teddy Geiger’s For You I Will (Confidence) and Gavin DeGraw’s In Love with a Girl.

Kristin has filmed the following movies: Green Flash, Fingerprints and Spring Breakdowns (2008) and Van Wilder: Freshman Year (2009).

In May 2009, Kristin announced she would be returning to MTV and joining theHills citing a desire to promote her film projects and Lauren Conrad’s exit.  She has signed on to two seasons for a reported $90,000 an episode. She appeared in the season finale of the show as a “surprise” guest at Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s wedding.

Kristin has participated in charities such as “Until There’s a Cure” public service advertising bringing awareness to and funds for HIV and AIDS research.  In 2006, Kristin appeared in ads for PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals).  She also appeared in the “We Are Ellis Island” campaign for the restoration of historic buildings on Ellis Island.

As for her personal life, Kristin dated Stephen Colleti (until 2004), NFL quarterback Matt Leinart, Brody Jenner (2004-2006), singer Nick Lahcey, and actor Nick Zano.
