Sophia Anna Bush (born July 8, 1982) is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her role as Brooke Davis in the CW series One Tree Hill and for portraying Grace Andrews in the horror remake The Hitcher (2007).


Early life

Sophia Bush, an only child, was born and raised in Pasadena, California[1] to Charles William Bush, an advertising and celebrity photographer, and Maureen, a photography studio manager.[2] Bush has Italian ancestry,[3] and attended Westridge School for Girls (Pasadena), as well as the University of Southern California. She was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority,[4] where she served as Social Chair.

In 2000, she was the Tournament of Roses Parade Queen. Bush attended USC for three years before landing the role of Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill (2003).


Bush made her first big screen appearance in the comedy Van Wilder as Sally (the freshman who seduces Van and doesn’t know who Air Supply is). Since then, she has made appearances in several television shows including Nip/Tuck, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and Punk’d. She was cast as Kate Brewster in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, but was replaced by Claire Danes because the director thought she was too young.[5][6] In 2003, she won the role of Brooke Davis in the television series One Tree Hill.

In between seasons of One Tree Hill, Bush has been cast in several films, such as Supercross, Stay Alive, John Tucker Must Die, and The Hitcher (the remake).

Bush received a “Rising Star” award at the Vail Film Festival for her work in The Hitcher. She has also won three Teen Choice Awards for her work in John Tucker Must Die and The Hitcher.

On April 20, 2007, it was confirmed that Bush will star in Francois Velle’s The Narrows with Kevin Zegers, Eddie Cahill and Vincent D’Onofrio. It is reported that she will play the beautiful, intelligent and self-assured Kathy Popovich. Filming began in New York on April 24, 2007 and is due for a 2008 release date. Bush is also starring in the film Table for Three, which is set to have a late 2008 release. The story centers on a suddenly single young man, Scott Teller (Brandon Routh), who invites a “perfect couple,” Mary and Ryan (Bush and Jesse Bradford), to share his large apartment. When Teller meets the girl of his dreams, Leslie (Jennifer Morrison), he believes that Ryan and Mary are intentionally sabotaging his chances with her because they desperately need him in their life to hold their dysfunctional relationship together.[7][8]

Personal life

On April 16, 2005, Bush married actor Chad Michael Murray, her One Tree Hill co-star. They dated for almost two years before they were married in Santa Monica. But then they announced their separation on September 26, 2005 after five months of marriage when Bush filed court papers to have their marriage annulled due to her calling the marriage a fraud and later Bush insinuated that Murray had cheated on her. In December of 2006, Bush and Murray’s divorce was made final.[9] Bush was in a relationship with Stay Alive co-star Jon Foster after her divorce until August 2007.[10] Later, rumors surfaced that Bush and Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo were dating. They were reportedly seen together in Texas.[11]

In December 2007, it was reported by Rush & Molloy in the New York Daily News that Bush had “now hooked up with co-star James Lafferty”; the report mentioned that a rep for the actress denied there was any romance.[12][13] In May 2008, photos surfaced of Lafferty and Bush at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which fueled rumors of a possible romance.[14]

In February 2008, Bush made several appearances in Texas in support of the Barack Obama campaign in the Texas Presidential primary election. She was joined in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Waco by fellow actor Adam Rodriguez. Touring mostly college campuses, they urged young voters to get involved politically.[15][16][17]

Sexiest countdown rankings

In late April 2007, Bush ranked #90 in the UK’s popular men’s magazine FHM, in their countdown of 100 Sexiest Women of 2007. Subsequently, she ranked #89 in the US edition of the same magazine. In May 2007, Bush ranked extremely high at #24 in the Maxim Hot 100 List of 2007. She has also appeared on the cover of the November 2006 edition of Maxim with One Tree Hill co-stars, Hilarie Burton and Danneel Harris. In previous years, Bush has ranked #3 on Femme Fatales: The 50 Sexiest Women of 2004 and named #15 on Much Music’s 20 Hottest Women of 2004.
