Alden Ehrenreich Biography

Alden Caleb Ehrenreich (born November 22, 1989) is an American actor. He has starred in the independent film Tetro (2009), and played the lead in the 2013 fantasy Beautiful Creatures.

Early life

Ehrenreich was born in Los Angeles, California. His mother, Sari, is an interior designer, and his stepfather is an orthodontist. He was raised in Reconstructionist Judaism. Ehrenreich began acting at the Palisades Elementary school in Pacific Palisades, California, and continued doing so at Crossroads School in Santa Monica, California.


Ehrenreich was discovered at a friend's bat mitzvah reception by Steven Spielberg, when Spielberg saw a short comedy movie featuring Ehrenreich. Ehrenreich has described the comedic performance he gave in the movie as: "I ran around as a skinny little punk, trying on girls' clothes and eating dirt". The meeting with Spielberg led to acting roles on television shows.

In 2007, Ehrenreich auditioned and won the role of Bennie Tetrocini in Francis Ford Coppola's movie Tetro. Coppola requested Ehrenreich read a passage from The Catcher in the Rye for his main audition. In April 2012, he replaced Jack O'Connell in the role of Ethan Wate in Warner Bros.' fantasy-drama Beautiful Creatures; the film was released in February 2013.

He lived in New York, and majored in theatre at New York University. In 2009, he founded the theatre and film company, The Collectin, with Zoe Worth.
