After that, she appeared in several more commercials like Eggo Waffles and Dr. Pepper. However, her first acting role in a horror film based on Stephen King’s novel, ‘Thinner’.

Created by Mark Schwahn, the show premiered in 2003. The story of One Tree Hill revolves around two half-brothers, Lucas and Nathan, who compete with each other on every step in life. Bethany Joy Lenz played the girl-next-door, Haley James Scott who is Lucas’s best friend. Later, she marries Nathan and together, they face many ups and downs.

In an Instagram post, she said:
“Unclassy”, “Unladylike”, “Crass”… yeah yeah yeah. We’re not stooping to their level, we’re obliterating their level. “Grab em by the p**sy…”? Im so grateful to be an American woman with the freedom to publicly say NOT THIS P**SY with my daughter at my side. And yes I did explain to her what it meant. And yes she is a badass little girl who believes in her own worth and equality. I’m proud to be a woman who stands up for herself and her daughter!
