Looking back, Blue Crush is one of those perfectly #GirlPower films that slipped just under the radar to bring us sneaky feminism in the *best* way. With a cast that moved on to do majorly BIG things, the surfer girl film is just so rad, and it’s so incredible to see where the cast got its start.

Following her role in Blue Crush, Kate Bosworth was in Beyond the Sea, leading to larger roles like Lois Lane in Superman Returns, and roles in Straw Dogs and Still Alice. Fun fact? Her eyes are different colors! One is brown, and one is blue, and it’s so, so cool.

Um, Alaric, is that you? Matthew, or Matt, Davis has had QUITE a career post-Blue Crush. He had a major role in Legally Blonde, and a regular role on The Vampire Diaries. Plus, he’s turned into a majorly rugged hottie. We dig it.
