Her first film role was in Robert Rodriguez’s horror science fiction film The Faculty in 1998, written by Kevin Williamson and co-starring Elijah Wood, Josh Hartnett, and Clea DuVall. In the film about strange occurrences involving the teachers of an Ohio high school, she played a popular vindictive cheerleading captain and an editor in chief of the student paper. The film received mixed reviews, but grossed United States $40 million in North America.

In 1999, Brewster appeared opposite Julia Stiles and Jerry O’Connell in a NBC television miniseries entitled The ’60s, playing a student activist. In 2000s, Brewster starred with Cameron Diaz and Christopher Eccleston in the independent drama The Invisible Circus in 2001, portraying a grieving teenage girl who travels to Europe in 1976 in search of answers to the suicide of her older sister.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival receiving limited theatrical release, to a lukewarm response. The New York Times felt that she “can’t summon a credible range of emotion” in her portrayal. Brewster’s breakthrough came afterwards in 2001, when she took on the role of Mia Toretto opposite Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in the street racing action film The Fast and the Furious.

As she did not have driver’s license, Brewster took driving lessons during production. Todd McCarthy of Variety, in his review for the film, noted that she did a “better job here than she did as a searching teen in the recent The Invisible Circus.” The film was a commercial success, grossing over United States $207 million worldwide. Following the release of The Fast and the Furious, she took a break from acting to complete her B. A. in English at Yale from which she graduated in 2003.

Brewster returned to the screen when she played as a lesbian criminal mastermind in the action comedy D.E.B.S. in 2004. A.V. Club dismissed her development on-screen relationship with co-star Sarah Foster, writing that “D.E.B.S. oscillates between the glib camp smirkiness of its half-hearted action send-up and the thudding earnestness of its romance”. Released in limited theaters, the film did not find an audience.

Brewster starred as the love interest of a high school student in the 1970s in the independent teen drama Nearing Grace in 2005, which was screened at the Los Angeles Film Festival. She appeared in the drama Annapolis in 2006, directed by Justin Lin and starring James Franco and Tyrese Gibson. In the film, Brewster played a Midshipman 2nd Class named Ali, and the love interest of a man attending the United States Naval Academy.

Annapolis was panned by critics and grossed United states S$7.7 million in its opening weekend, described as “uninspired” by website Box Office Mojo. She next starred in the slasher horror The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning in 2006, opposite Diora Baird, Taylor Handley and Matt Bomer. The film saw the four actors portray friends driving across Texas who are taken captive by the Hewitt family. Despite largely negative reviews, the film made US$51 million worldwide.

For her performance, she was nominated for both Choice Movie Actress: Horror–Thriller and Choice Movie: Scream at the 2007 Teen Choice Awards. Brewster at Fast & Furious premiere in 2009-She had a four-episode arc 2008- 2009 on the NBC television series Chuck, as Jill Roberts, the title character’s ex-girlfriend from Stanford.

Brewster returned to the role of Mia Toretto in Fast & Furious in 2009, the fourth film of The Fast and the Furious franchise. On the growth of Brewster’s character over the course of the series, she explained in an interview with AskMen.com: “In the first one I’m more of a wallflower and it’s much more of a girlfriend-type role, but in ”I’m more of a woman”, She’s far more tough.

I deal with the repercussions of living in my brother’s world.” The film earned negative reviews upon its premiere, but was a box office success, grossing United States $363 million globally.
