When Minka graduated from Valley High School she decided to try modeling. Soon she was noticed by “Playboy”, but it was suggested that she have a breast augmentation procedure. Kelly did not agree to this and this led to the end of her work with “Playboy”. Her career as an actress began in 2003, when she appeared in the short movie, “Turbo-Charged Prelude”. In 2005 she acted in three episodes of the television show called “What I Like About You”. Minka subsequently received more attention, and in 2006 she was cast in one of the main roles in the television show “Friday Night Lights”, during the making of which Kelly worked together with Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, Zach Gilford, and Jesse Plemons. Later Kelly received invitations to act in such movies as “The Pumpkin Karver”, “The Kingdom” and “State’s Evidence”, all of which added a lot to Minka’s net worth.

In 2011 Minka got one of the lead roles in the movie, “The Roommate”, where she acted with Leighton Meester, Cam Gigandet, Matt Lanter, Aly Michalka, Danneel Harris and others. Another very successful project that year was in what became a very popular TV show called “Charlie’s Angels”, which had a huge impact on the growth of Minka’s net worth and her recognition. In addition to her appearances in various movies and television shows, Kelly has also acted in several music videos of such musicians as “Puddle of Mudd”, “Maroon 5” and “Something Corporate”.

Overall, Minka has worked on numerous shows and movies.

Quotes

#Quote
1I learned how to horseback ride in English style, which is very hard, by the way. I had no idea how challenging it was. I've always ridden horses, but Western is like riding a horse in a rocking chair, as opposed to English, where you have to balance and hold on with your legs.
2No matter what you're doing, live it. Make an experience. Have fun. Relate to someone. Take them in. Learn.
3I was a tomboy, not a girlie girl.
4It blows my mind that anyone could be unkind to anyone.
5In L.A. everyone is an actor. In Texas, everyone's a musician.
6I'm confident - confident in my skin, and I'm cool with my flaws and all that stuff.
7I love making characters real and believable, through my own experience and choices.
8I like to go wakeboarding. It's my new favorite sport. It's like skiing but on a snowboard that has little shoes on it.
9I think Miami is such a beautiful, sexy, gorgeous place. I love the people there.
10I didn't go to theater school. I didn't go to Julliard. But I've lived a lot. I've seen a lot. I feel like that makes up for a little bit.
11I moved to California not to pursue acting but to get out of Albuquerque.
12I think the most attractive thing for me when I meet a guy is confidence and him being comfortable in his own skin. I like someone who doesn't need approval or validation.
13In any solid, good relationship, it takes a while to trust someone.
14I learned how to scuba dive, which is something that I've always wanted to do.
15I think brutal honesty is extremely important. Don't be afraid of being up-front about your feelings and your life.
16And anyway, modeling wasn't for me. I'm too short. I've got a big butt. It wasn't going to happen.
