Krysten Ritter grew up on a family farm nearby Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania; she was born to Gary Ritter and Kathi Taylor. She attended Northwest Area High School, during which her career began before she matriculated in 2000. Krysten`s career took off in high school when she was a part of a modeling event at the Mall in her hometown, soon after which she was offered a contract by Elite Model Management, and later joined the Wilhelmina Models. Little by little her career began to develop, and since she turned 18 she has been focused on a career in the entertainment industry. She has posed for magazines, and also walked the runway in several cities around the globe, including Paris, Milan, and Tokyo, among others.

She then launched her acting career, firstly appearing in a TV commercial, but soon she dared to try herself as a full-time actress, and made her first appearance in the film “Someone Like You…” (2001), followed the next year by appearing in “Garmento” (2002). In 2003 she featured in the film “Mona Lisa Smile”, with Julia Roberts and Kirsten Dunst, and the next year she appeared in the film “Pool Guys”, increasing further her net worth.

With the beginning of a second decade of 2000s, Krysten became even more famous, which further increased her net worth. She starred in films “How To Make Love To A Woman” (2010), “Killing Bono” (2010), “Refuge” (2012), “Listen Up Philip” (2014), “Asthma” (2014), “Search Party” (2014), and “Big Eyes” (2014), among others. She also featured in several TV series, including “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” (2012-2013), and most recently she was selected for the lead character of Jessica Jones, in the TV series of the same name, which has been on air since 2015, and is currently in its second season.

Quotes

#Quote
1I've never been a fearful person. When I was growing up, I wanted to be an actress, a writer, and a musician and I never really processed that those are the three hardest jobs - I just never even processed it.
2On the farm, I had chores. I had a calf. We had a herd of cattle in the pasture. We'd go and get me a calf at a cow auction with Amish people, which I would raise. I gave it a bottle every day, in this cute little coop, like a giant dog coop almost. I've always been a big animal person.
3When I go home to Pennsylvania, my cousins who live in small towns and are twenty-three with kids are like 'Krysten, when are you getting married?' 'When are you having a kid?' Honestly, those aren't the most important things to me right now.
4When I was 15, I was scouted at the mall by Elite Model Management. I started to go to New York on the bus in high school, which was about four hours door-to-door from my hometown, until I moved to New York and lived in models' apartments all over.
5I've always lived out of a suitcase. I was in a new city every three months. When I was a model, I traveled the world, and as an actor you're traveling from movie set to movie set. So I've never been in one place long enough for anything super-bad to happen.
6I don't normally do shoots in bikinis - I'm just not that kind of girl. But for 'Maxim' I was like, 'Bring it on!' I wanted to wear the higher heels and the skimpier bathing suit. I figured I'd go for it!
7I have a new little stray dog that I've had for about a month now. His name is Mikey Mohawk - he's this little terrier with a natural Mohawk. My friend found him hit by a car on Pico Boulevard.
8I used Vamps as a casting couch! I pretty much did, because I was casting 'L!fe Happens' while I was on the set of Vamps, and anybody I had ever worked with, I asked to be in this movie.
9I'm having a great time. I get to travel and see the world. And yeah, I'll have a family, because I don't want to miss out on that amazing experience, but it's not defining who I am.
10I was always loud and obnoxious and giggly and funny.
11I'm a weirdo. I don't leave the house unless I have to.
12I'm the only person in the entire world who has never seen 'Dawson's Creek.'
13I've watched 'Clueless' as many times as humanly possible. Like, I would run home from school to watch it. Like, I can quote it backwards.
14My parents actually wanted me to join the service.
15I'm currently single, so I want to have fun! As for what guys need to do to date out of their league, it's all about the swagger. If you have confidence, you can get pretty much any girl.
16I like to be stylish and edgy, but also low maintenance.
17I am sarcastic and dry, but I also have a pretty huge zest for life.
18I was totally picked on, but look at me now! I was definitely picked on by boys and girls. I was really lanky and skinny and the boys would say, 'Turn sideways and stick out your tongue, you look like a zipper.'
19I started studying acting, got commercials, and here we are 100 years later. I'm acting and writing and I have a pool and a dog.
