Life and career

Yustman was born in Los Angeles, California. She is Jewish.[1] Her mother, Lydia, is Cuban, and her father, Victor Yustman, who is of Italian and French descent, was born in Bogota, Colombia and raised in Nicaragua.[2][3] Yustman is fluent in Spanish.[4]

Yustman graduated from Woodcrest Christian High School in Riverside, California. Originally after graduating, she planned on getting a degree in business finance at Loyola Marymount University before she decided to pursue a career in acting.

She debuted at an early age, playing a young student in Kindergarten Cop and later moved on to various television shows and movies such as South Beach and October Road. In 2007, she starred in the Lifetime original movie Reckless Behavior: Caught on Tape and followed it quickly with a lead role in J. J. Abrams' Cloverfield.[5] She also provided the voice of the character Amata in Fallout 3. On January 29, 2008, Variety announced that she would appear in The Unborn, which was released in 2009.[6] Much Internet buzz was generated by the release of an international poster for Unborn that seemed to exploit Yustman's physical attractiveness.[7][8] She was engaged to Trevor Wright.[9] She is currently in a relationship with Brothers and Sisters star Dave Annable.

Yustman is featured in the music video for "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To" by Weezer.

Awards and nominations

She was nominated in 2008 for a Teen Choice Award at the Teen Choice Awards for Choice Movie Actress: Horror/Thriller for Cloverfield (2008).
