Jenna Dewan Life Story
Jenna Dewan is one good reason why you should go rent the dance movie Step Up. Before becoming an actress, Dewan was a backup dancer for acts like P. Diddy, Ricky Martin and N'Sync. She later dated Justin Timberlake for a year in 2002. Dewan used her half-Lebanese good looks and sexy dance style to nab the starring role in Step Up and played Sasha in the other dance flick Take the Lead. Before her big break, she also appeared on soap operas such as The Young and the Restless and played the title role in the horror movie Tamara, about a reanimated high school outcast. She also starred in the horror movie The Grudge 2 with Sarah Michelle Gellar and Amber Tamblyn.
