    Early life

    Cavallari was born in Denver, Colorado, the second of two children of Judith Spies (née Eifrig) and Dennis Cavallari.

    When her mother divorced her father, her older brother, Mike, moved with their father to Laguna Beach, California, while she moved with her mother to the village of Barrington, Illinois, a suburb an hour northwest of Chicago. She attended Barrington Station Middle School, and graduated on to Barrington High School. After difficulties adjusting to a new life with a stepfather and stepbrother, Cavallari moved to California to live with her father. There, Cavallari was enrolled at Santa Margarita Catholic High School for her freshman year. After she attended a Driver's Education course through Laguna Beach High School, her father enrolled her in Laguna Beach High School.[citation needed]

    Media career

    Cavallari was in her junior year of high school when the first season of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County began production. At the time, she was involved in an on-and-off relationship with senior Stephen Colletti. Cavallari's romance with Colletti caused a rivalry with another cast member, Lauren Conrad. The love triangle became one of the series' central plot lines.

    In May 2009, Cavallari confirmed that she would be joining the cast of Laguna Beach's spin-off series, The Hills. She made her first appearance on the series during the fifth season's mid-season finale on May 31, 2009, at Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt's wedding, where she caught the bouquet. The second half of the season premiered on September 29, 2009, with Cavallari assuming the position of former main cast member and narrator Conrad. Despite originally signing a deal with MTV to appear in two additional seasons following the fifth, the sixth and final season concluded on July 13, 2010.

    Cavallari was on the 13th season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars and partnered with two-time champion, Mark Ballas. Despite having high scores, Cavallari was the third to be eliminated, shocking the audience, judges, and fellow dancers alike. One of the judges, Len Goodman, commented that he expected to see Cavallari dancing in the final. The cumulative average of Cavallari's dances were higher than of contestants who had lasted twice as long as she did.

    After her stint on Laguna Beach, Cavallari headed to Los Angeles and briefly attended the Loyola Marymount University. She signed on the UPN reality television series Get This Party Started, which premiered February 7, 2006. The series was canceled after airing two episodes due to extremely low ratings. She guest starred on one episode of another UPN series, Veronica Mars. She has appeared in numerous television roles such as CSI: NY, Cane and Adventures in Hollyhood. In 2006, she signed on as Crystal in the horror film Fingerprints. She also played a small role in Wristcutters: A Love Story, an independent film, directed by Goran Dukic in 2006.

    In 2008, she had a supporting role as Summer in Spring Breakdown alongside Amy Poehler. The film was released straight-to-DVD on June 2, 2009, and received mixed reviews. She also starred in the independent film Green Flash alongside Torrey DeVitto. In 2009 she starred in the independent American high school comedy film, Wild Cherry, as Trish, which also starred Rumer Willis. She also starred in the straight-to-DVD film, National Lampoon's Van Wilder: Freshman Year, as Kaitlyn. The film was released July 14, 2009, to mixed to negative reviews.[citation needed]

    In 2010, Kristen appeared in Jaron and the Long Road to Love's music video "That's Beautiful to Me."

    Charity work and public image

    Cavallari has been involved in the "Until There's a Cure", public service advertising campaign, to raise awareness and funds for AIDS and HIV research and vaccine development.[citation needed] In 2006, Cavallari appeared in ads for PETA, and has also appeared as a celebrity spokesperson for "We Are Ellis Island", a campaign for the restoration of Ellis Island.[citation needed] In February 2009, she posed for the NOH8 Campaign in support of gay marriage.

    In January 2010, she traveled to El Salvador to do charity work. In March 2011, Cavallari traveled to Kenya to do charity work with the non-profit organization One Kid One World.[citation needed]

    In March 2014, Cavallari drew national criticism for refusing to vaccinate her children, a decision she and her husband, Jay Cutler based on fears of a connection between childhood vaccination and autism.

    Personal life

    Cavallari previously dated her Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County co-star Stephen Colletti and her The Hills co-stars, Brody Jenner and Justin Brescia.

    As a high school senior in the winter of 2004/05, Cavallari dated NFL quarterback Matt Leinart, who at the time was attending the University of Southern California. She can be seen referring to Leinart in early episodes of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County's second season.

    Cavallari began dating Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler in late 2010, and became engaged to him in April 2011. They called off the engagement in July 2011, but reconciled in November 2011. In January 2012, the couple announced Cavallari's pregnancy. She gave birth to their first child, son Camden Jack, on August 8, 2012.
