After steady appearances as Alison on the television series “Justified,” she was most recently seen in the Lifetime Original film “Sister Cities” alongside actresses Troian Bellisario, Stana Katic and Michelle Trachtenberg. She has several projects slated to premiere this year including the independent film Apple of My Eye. Previously, Smart starred alongside Ashton Kutcher in The Butterfly Effect, Jason Statham in Crank, and Crank: High Voltage, Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy in the hit television series “Shameless,” and Ryan Reynolds in the film Just Friends. She was also seen alongside Matt Dillon and William Dafoe in Bad Country. Smart was born in Topanga Canyon, California and got her start in TV-movies, making her feature debut in Stephen Kay's The Last Time I Committed Suicide alongside Keanu Reeves, which screened at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival. She was a relatively new arrival to the film scene when Smart first gained notice for her supporting roles in the hit teen films Varsity Blues, and Outside Providence.
Outside of her acting career, Smart has been involved with a variety of philanthropic organizations. For seven years she was a speaker for Heal the Bay, an organization that works on cleaning up the ocean. She was also previously named one of “Organic Style” magazine’s “Women with Organic Style.” The award is given to women who do inspiring things, making the world a better place. She presently sits on the board of directors for both the Environmental Media Association and Heal The Bay. Smart continues to work with the environmental advocacy groups Environment California and Best Friends Animal Society.
