Sophisticated and statuesque Brooklyn Decker proved she was a force to be reckoned with as a supermodel, but it was her deft and hilarious acting skills in various film and television projects that won over audiences. Born on April 12, 1987 in Kettering, OH, Decker was reportedly named by her parents - both of whom worked in the medical field - after a horse called "Brook." Her family lived in Middletown, OH for a short time before moving to Charlotte, NC, where Decker was discovered in a shopping mall. She began her career modeling for various magazines, including Teen Vogue, FHM, and Cosmopolitan, as well as appearing in advertising campaigns for the Gap, J.C. Penney, and Victoria's Secret. She made her Sports Illustrated debut in 2006, appearing in the annual Swimsuit Issue. Decker finally graced the coveted cover of the 2010 swimsuit issue, which placed her amongst an elite group of models who had previously done so, including Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks and Elle Macpherson.

Decker made her acting debut in the 2007 made-for-television film "Lipshitz Saves the World," a comedy that also starred Leslie Nielsen and Ty Burrell. The model-turned-actress made memorable guest appearances on a number of hit primetime shows in 2009, including the spy thriller "Chuck" (NBC, 2007- ) and the stylish dramedy "Ugly Betty" (ABC, 2006-2010). That same year, Decker married tennis ace and U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick in a lavish ceremony held at his home in Austin, TX. Following their nuptials, Sir Elton John serenaded the newlyweds during an intimate reception with family and friends. With her Hollywood "It" girl status on the rise, Decker made her big screen debut in the 2010 comedy "Just Go with It." In the film, she played the much-younger girlfriend of a plastic surgeon (Adam Sandler) who covers up a careless lie he told her by asking his assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to pretend to be his soon-to-be-divorced wife. Decker further padded her acting résumé by joining the cast of the sci-fi action movie "Battleship" (2012), alongside Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgard.
