Even I would often confuse Leslie Bibb and Maggie Grace, although then I didn’t really know them by their names, I would just say, “Is that the girl from Lost?”. Yes, even though Leslie Bibb is older than Maggie Grace, Grace caught my eye first as Shannon Rutherford, the spoiled stepsister of Ian Somerhalder on ABC’s Lost, back in 2004.
Bibb and Grace were both born and raised in the good ole’ US of A, both actresses and both lost their father in one way or another. Bibb’s father passed away when she was three and Grace’s parents divorced when she was 16, after which she moved to Los Angeles with her mother and pursued an acting career.
Bibb also had a life changing moment at the age of 16, she won The Oprah Winfrey Show and the Elite Agency nationwide modeling search, judged by Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Iman, and took off to New York and Japan to model.
These two gorgeous ladies look very much a like and there’s a good chance I might confuse them again sometime in the future. Bibb currently stars in the hilarious GCB, and has a few movies in the works, including 7500 (2013) with Ryan Kwanten and Amy Smart, an untitled Farrelly/Wessler Comedy (2013) with like 20 other stars, and Hell Baby (2013) with Rob Corddry.
Grace also has a number of projects in the works, including Decoding Annie Parker (2012) with Helen Hunt, Taken 2 (October 5th, 2012) with Liam Neeson and Famke Janssen, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (November 16, 2012) with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and Relative Insanity (2013) with Helen Hunt and David Duchovny.
