Alexis Bledel Sexy Random Photos

Kimberly Alexis Bledel was born on September 16, 1981, in Houston, Texas. Her mother, Nanette, is Mexican and her father, Martin, is Argentinean. She has one younger brother, Eric David Bledel. Her first language is Spanish, which is the language she spoke at home; she only learned to speak English when she started school.

When Alexis was 8 years old, her parents encouraged her to act in Houston community theater to combat her shyness; she starred in productions of The Wizard of Oz and Aladdin. While attending Saint Agnes Academy in Houston, Alexis was discovered by a talent scout for Company Management modeling agency. As of the age of 14, during summer breaks in high school, she relocated to Manhattan to work as a catalog model and traveled to cities such as Milan and Tokyo.

She also studied modeling and acting at the Page Parkes Center for Modeling and Acting during her teens. After graduating high school, she enrolled in NYU's Tisch School of Arts to study writing and directing for one year.

Alexis' first big-screen appearance was an uncredited bit part in Rushmore (1998). She was featured in Seventeen magazine, modeling prom dresses in 1999, and again in 2000 as a lip gloss model. But her big breakthrough came when she auditioned for the WB's hit show Gilmore Girls in 2000. Since she took on the role of fast-talking, witty Rory Gilmore, daughter of Lorelai (played by Lauren Graham), her fame has increased tenfold.

In 2002, Alexis starred alongside Ben Kingsley and Sissy Spacek in her first major big-screen role in Tuck Everlasting. That same year, she won the Family Television Award for Best Actress in a Drama for Gilmore Girls and was voted one of the hottest stars under 25 by Teen People magazine. In 2004, she appeared in the short film DysEnchanted and the Bollywood musical film Bride & Prejudice.

2005 is a breakout year for Alexis; she appeared in The Orphan King, played a prostitute alongside Jessica Alba and Benicio Del Toro in Frank Miller's Sin City, and starred with Amber Tamblyn in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Alexis is currently working on the film I'm Reed Fish, set for release in 2006, while she continues to star in Gilmore Girls. She has been romantically linked with former Gilmore Girls costar Milo Ventimiglia since he was hired on as a cast member in 2001.

When she's not working, Alexis enjoys playing the piano. During breaks on the Gilmore Girls set, she often heads to her trailer to practice on her keyboard. She also volunteers for First Book, a national youth literacy program for the underprivileged. Her favorite bands are Incubus and Radiohead. Other hobbies include photography, writing and reading, watching movies, and being with her family. She resides in Los Angeles, California.
