Kate Bosworth Posts ‘Remember the Titans’ Photos with Ryan Gosling and Hayden Panettiere
Kate Bosworth also recalled the “big sister energy” she shared with a preteen Hayden Panettiere on the set of their Disney film Remember the Titans in 2000.
Kate Bosworth is reminiscing about one of her first roles as she takes a trip down memory lane.
On Friday, the actress, 38, marked the 21st anniversary of Remember the Titans by sharing behind-the-scenes photos of herself, Ryan Gosling, and a young Hayden Panettiere from the set of the iconic 2000 football film.
“Remember The Titans premiered Sept 29, 2000. (I was 16 years old!),” In the caption, Bosworth wrote: “Things I remember from making this special film… being nervous (I was a regular high school kid in a pretty unusual circumstance)! The cast and crew were like family. Big sister energy for sweet 10 yr old Hayden Panettiere. My first crying scene (I sobbed in rehearsals and then panicked when I had nothing left when the cameras rolled, that was a learning lesson!) Ryan Gosling is a total sweetheart (but you all already know that :)”
In the Disney film, Bosworth played Emma Hoyt, who was inspired by the true story of Herman Boone (Denzel Washington), who was responsible for the integration of the T. C. Williams High School football team in 1971 Alexandria, Virginia.
“I’m so happy this movie still resonates with so many,” Bosworth added. “The connection movies can bring to us is something I truly cherish. Big love and thanks for the incredible support throughout the years … we are so grateful. LEFT SIDE // STRONG SIDE”
In the comments section, some of her famous friends assisted her in celebrating her anniversary. “Oh my,” Shane West. “Yes! I had a feeling! Ryan Gosling was always a total sweetheart to me! #RememberingTheTitans, “Justin Long joined the conversation in.
Bosworth previously shared photos of herself and Chris Evans from their indie film The Newcomers, which was released in 2000. “Hey Capt. America, a little help pls?? (asking for a 15 yr old from the late 90’s …) @chrisevans,” She wrote captions for the photos.
The Blue Crush star has spoken out about a “real kind of cruelty” she faced in the early 2000s, when she was just starting out in her career. She claimed she was subjected to “intense amount of scrutiny and criticism,” which is why she was rarely smiling in photos from that period of her life.
In June, she told InStyle’s Ladies First with Laura Brown podcast, “It was so intense and overwhelming,” “It was a very difficult time for me, and I had no idea how to deal with it. And I also didn’t know how to communicate effectively with support systems, friends, and family.”
