Remember When: Nikki Reed Was in 'Thirteen'?

Remember When: Nikki Reed Was in 'Thirteen'?-photo

Twilight bad girl Nikki Reed may have just recently become a big name, but she's been on Hollywood's radar for quite some time now.

Nikki's personal history is far from perfect. Before the age of 14, the actress had reputedly experimented heavily with sex, drugs and booze, resulting in an emancipation from her parents—at a time when most teenagers were just hitting puberty.

The wild-child then decided to pen her own autobiographical novel, based on her racy experiences. Director Catherine Hardwicke got wind of the story and teamed up with the brunette to create the film Thirteen, which also starred Evan Rachel Wood.

Nikki's character, Evie Zamora, which Catherine herself cited as "uncomfortable," was a piece of cake for the actress, who used her real-life experiences to bring the character to a whole new level. She excelled as the out-of-control teenager who used her looks and charm to get sex, drugs and money.

Take a look at Nikki back in her wild days:

After the film's release in 2003, Nikki played a string of sexy characters in Lords of Dogtown and The OC, until Hardwicke once again called upon her to play the gorgeous Rosalie Hale in the Twilight series.

What do you think of Nikki's move from party animal to vampire?

    nikki reed's an amazing person, she went through soooo much and yet she isn't bitter about it, instead she's choosen to take what she's gone through and grow from it. if you read some of her interviews when she was younger like in her teenage yrs, you really feel for her, i was reading one a couple of mins ago, and i felt like crying

    Honestly..guys come on! how hard it must been 4 her to write such a thing. I truly admire her

  • Cloe

    Acctually I love it, everything!..its sooo real things arent the same as they were 10 years ago, girls arent the same that they used to be, I believe its a movie that shows the hard reality that nobody wants to see. Good for nikki!

    The movie "Thirteen" disgusted me. I never knew it was based on her real life. Now, I think even less of her. She is a beautiful girl but that movie was just umcomfortable to watch.

    Can't really tell if she has talent at all. And I don't really have an opinion on her. There isn't much that she's done to have an opinion.
