Actor bio: Jared Tristan Padalecki was born on July 19, 1982 in San Antonio, Texas to Sharon L. and Jerry Padalecki. He has an older brother, Jeff, and a younger sister, Megan.

He attended James Madison High School in San Antonio and was named a candidate for the 2000 Presidential Scholars Program. In 1998, Padalecki and his partner Chris Cardenas won the National Forensics League national championship in Duo Interpretation. Jared won Fox TV's 1999 "Claim to Fame Contest"; he subsequently appeared at the Teen Choice Awards, where he met his current manager. Before graduating from high school in 2000, he moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue an acting career, although he had originally planned to attend the University of Texas.

Jared's first credit was a minor role in the 1999 film, A Little Inside. In 2000, he was cast as Dean Forester on the successful series Gilmore Girls, a role he played until 2005. He also appeared in several made-for-television films, including Silent Witness (2000), Close to Home (2001), A Ring of Endless Light (2002) and Young MacGyver (2003).

Jared had an uncredited part in 2003's comedy Cheaper by the Dozen. In 2004, he appeared in the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen-led comedy New York Minute, and also had a role in the thriller Flight of the Phoenix. In 2005, Jared starred opposite Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray and Paris Hilton in the horror film House of Wax, and appeared in another horror film, Cry_Wolf, on the set of which he met his longtime girlfriend, co-star Sandra McCoy.

The same year, Jared was cast as Sam Winchester on the WB series, Supernatural, and gained a fan base after the show's success. Supernatural was renewed for a second season, which began airing on September 28, 2006 on The CW. The show was renewed for a third season, beginning on October 2007. He was featured as host in an advertisement for MTV's upcoming horror reality series, ROOM 401. He hosts the series, produced by Ashton Kutcher.

Jared went on to make more films, including Christmas Cottage (2008) and Friday the 13th (2009).

On February 27, 2010, Jared and Genevieve Cortese (Ruby #2) were wed in her hometown in Sun Valley, Idaho.

  • “I don’t think we take ourselves very seriouslly. Growing up I used to see these people who were called like cuties or hotties or sex symbols and they’d be like ‘You know I’m sexy’ (strikes a pose) or like, ‘look how sexy and hot I am’ and I think it`s just disgusting and I think you gotta kinda be able to make fun of yourself you know. However you look is just a shell of who you are- it’s nothing really– to do with you."

Has anyone else ever found it odd that their surnames are so similar? Just a random thought.
