5' 3" (1.6 m)
Brittany Leanna Robertson was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, to Beverly (Hayes) and Ryan Robertson, a restaurateur. She was raised in South Carolina, the oldest of seven children. Her mother's worries about the public school system led to Robertson being home-schooled. She began acting at the Greenville Little Theater in South Carolina, and in her early teens moved to Los Angeles with her grandmother to seek TV and film opportunities. She won roles in various TV projects including Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers (2004). Success continued with appearances in Dan in Real Life (2007), Scream 4 (2011), and the lead roles in two series, Lux in Life Unexpected (2010) and Cassie in The Secret Circle (2011). Britt also starred in the television film Avalon High (2010), opposite Gregg Sulkin, had a supporting role in the Vince Vaughn film Delivery Man (2013), headlined the Nicholas Sparks book adaptation The Longest Ride (2015), opposite Scott Eastwood, and will star with George Clooney in the Brad Bird-directed science fiction adventure Tomorrowland (2015).
The oldest of 7 children.
Grew up in Greenville, South Carolina.
Was considered one of the 55 faces of the future by Nylon Magazine's Young Hollywood Issue.
I am the oldest of seven. Do my siblings think I'm super cool? I wish they thought I was super cool! A lot of them are pretty young, so they don't really get to watch a lot of the television and films that I've been in. The older ones, I think, think I'm pretty cool. Not because I'm an actor, because I'm an awesome big sister.
I eat like no other, it drives everyone crazy. I eat donuts three times a day and I probably go through four Mountain Dews a day. I'm on like a sugar high at all times, pretty much. Shiri Appleby, who plays my mother, is a vegan and works out every day for two hours before she goes to work. When she sees me with my Mountain Dew, eating chips and a donut at 4 in the morning, she's like, "Wow. Wait until you're 30".
I like really bad TV; it's a problem. Love me some reality. Would I ever be on a reality show? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. That would not be for me. My mom used to think it would be funny if I had a reality show: "It would be cute, we could call it Being B," because my family calls me "B." We're not doing that. We're not the Kardashians. I also love the Kardashians.
None of my friends really like to party. My best friend and I go to bed at 11 o'clock. We have such old lady schedules. Everyone's always like, "Let's go out!" And we're always like, "No, we don't want to". They call us the grandmas. L.A. can get really old really quickly if you waste your life away in a club all night.
If I can play 15 when I am 25, I can play 35 when I'm 55.
My grandmother raised me for a good portion of my life. She moved to Los Angeles with me to be an actor, so I've always had a connection with an older generation.
