At 18, Brooklyn moved to New York City and quickly rose to stardom within the industry, gracing the pages of magazines including Glamour and Cosmopolitan, and featured in major advertising campaigns for Gap and American Eagle. Brooklyn's big break came in 2010 when she appeared I on the cover of the wildly popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue after appearing in the magazine in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. She then went on to appear in romantic comedy Just Go With It, opposite Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, star in the sci-fi epic Battleship and bring tears of laughter to watchers of What to Expect WhenYou're Expecting. Brooklyn has also made TV appearances on The New Girl and FX's The League.

In April 2009, Brooklyn married professional tennis player Andy
Roddick.
