America Ferrara Gets TV Show, But Which 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' Star Is Doing Best?
Ah, 2005: When Hitch ruled the box office, "Hollaback Girl" took over the radio, and a pair of traveling pants became the envy of pre-teen girls everywhere. When the film adaptation of Ann Brasheres' bestselling novel hit theaters, it introduced the world to a magical pair of jeans, but more importantly, it jumpstarted - or ended - the careers of many of its cast members. Let's take a look at how 10 members of the Sisterhood gang has fared since the movie's release, from least successful to most. Image: Warner Bros.
10. Jenna Boyd
The then-12-year-old Boyd played Bailey, a terminal leukemia patient Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) reluctantly befriended over the course of the movie. Post-Pants, Boyd acted in a few TV shows and little-seen movies, but hasn't appeared in anything since 2012, when she had a supporting role in a Christian family film called Last Ounce of Courage.

9. Michael Rady
Oh, Kostos, how we loved you so. The Greek, gorgeous lover of Lena (Alexis Bledel) was perfectly embodied by Michael Rady, but unfortunately, we haven't seen much of him on-screen since the movies' end. Rady's had short-lived turns on shows like Greek, Melrose Place, and The Mentalist, but despite that, he's still relatively unknown to most audiences. Image: Warner Bros.
8. Alexis Bledel
For awhile, it seemed like Bledel would have the most promising career of all the Sisterhood cast, due to her main role on the WB's beloved Gilmore Girls. Yet after the series' end in 2007, Bledel shied away from the spotlight and only acted in a handful of films, none of which were successful. A recent arc on Mad Men helped revive fans' interest, but the fact that her new show just got cancelled before it even aired isn't a good sign for the future. Rory, what happened? Image: Warner Bros.
7. Amber Tamblyn
Tamblyn has acted steadily since Sisterhood, but unfortunately, she hasn't yet found a role that's garnered her any substantial critical attention. She had a bit part in 127 Hours and a supporting role on House, but not anything more major. With four movies in the works, however, plus a recently announced run on Two and a Half Men , Tamblyn's luck could be changing. Image: Warner Bros.
6. Mike Vogel
Post-Sisterhood, Vogel, who played the love interest of Bridget (Blake Lively) in the movies, spent the next several years starring in numerous successful movies, including Cloverfield, Blue Valentine, and What's Your Number? After turns on Pan Am and Bates Motel, he now plays Barbie on CBS' Under the Dome. Image: Warner Bros.
5. Carly Rose Sonenclar
Sonenclar may have only had a tiny role as Tibby's little sister in the Sisterhood sequel, but she must have made quite an impression on critics, because she's found pretty huge success in the last couple of years. The Broadway-trained 14-year-old finished second in the sophomore season of The X Factor, and is currently working on a debut album.
4. Lucy Hale
After a supporting turn as Lena's little sister, Effie, in the Sisterhood sequel, Hale went on to a now-cancelled series called Privileged and guest-starred on shows like Private Practice and CSI: Miami. Her big break, though, came in 2010, when she nabbed a lead role on cult ABC Family hit Pretty Little Liars. The actress has starred as Aria for four years, and judging by the show's immense success, she has no plans on stopping anytime soon. Image: Warner Bros.
3. Jesse Williams
Like Hale, Williams only appeared in the Sisterhood sequel, but man, did he make an impression. His memorable role as Leo, a nude model who falls for Lena, quickly led to arcs on Greek (as "The Hotness Monster," natch) and Beyond the Break. In 2009, he began starring as Jackson Avery on Grey's Anatomy, a role that brought him mainstream success and Hollywood fame. Image: Warner Bros.
2. America Ferrera
For many of the Sisterhood cast, the movie was the culmination of their acting careers, but for Ferrera, it was just the beginning. A year after the film's release, the actress began starring in ABC's Ugly Betty, a role that went on to earn her an Emmy and a Golden Globe. She's also done voice work for the How to Train Your Dragon Series, appeared in the critically acclaimed End of Watch, and is prepping a much-anticipated return to TV as the star of a just-ordered CBS series.
1. Blake Lively
To say Blake Lively has been successful post-Pants is an understatement; in less than 10 years, she's become a respected actress, an A-list star, and a tabloid queen. A six-year run on the CW's hit Gossip Girl made her a household name, and strong supporting roles in movies like The Town and Savages brought her acting cred. Today, she's a major celebrity with a quickly-growing, Martha Stewart-like lifestyle empire. Marrying Ryan Reynolds didn't hurt, either. Lively's career is on fire, and she's by far the most successful cast member of Traveling Pants. Image: Warner Bros.
