Court­ney Hope (Sally) be­gan mod­el­ing and ap­pear­ing in com­mer­cials when she was four years old, and the ac­tress says that was all her own do­ing! “It wasn’t my par­ents who were push­ing it,” she notes. “I was a showman from lit­er­ally the sec­ond I popped out [ of the womb].” Though Hope took a meet­ing with an agent as a tot, her mother even­tu­ally put the brakes on her road to star­dom. “She said, ‘We should wait. When you’re 12, we can get you an agent.’” Of course, the morn- ing of her twelfth birth­day, Hope re­minded her mother of that prom­ise. “I said, ‘Okay! You told me I could get an agent, so let’s do it!’” By age 15, Hope had con­vinced her par­ents to let her move from Texas to Los An­ge­les. “We trav­eled back and forth at first, but even­tu­ally we all re­lo­cated, and they still live in L.A. with my lit­tle brother.” Hope feels for­tu­nate to have par­ents who took her pas­sion in stride, and she’s happy to be able to prove to them that it’s paid off!

Hope caught the act­ing bug very early!
