Ladd was born on January 14, 1975 in Los Angeles, California to parents Cheryl and David Ladd. Her paternal grandparents were also in the industry, as her grandfather Alan Ladd worked as an actor and producer as did her paternal grandmother. Her parents divorced in 1980 when Ladd was 5 years old. Her mother remarried a year later to music producer Brian Russel and Ladd grew up with her step-sister, Lindsay Russell.
Ladd was initially not involved in the industry. She attended high school in Los Angeles and led a relatively normal life, despite her famous parents. After graduating from high school in 1993, she attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.
Ladd began appearing in commercials at a young age. When she was 2 years old, she appeared in a commercial for Polaroid. While in school, she began acting in film and television and sometimes worked with her mother. She appeared alongside her mother in "The Girl Who Came Between Them" in 1990 and "Broken Promises: Taking Emily Back" in 1993. However, she did not focus her attention on acting seriously until she completed high school.
In 1994, she guest-starred in an episode of the NBC series, "Saved by the Bell: The New Class." She then made her big screen debut with a supporting role in the film "Embrace of the Vampire" in 1994. Throughout the rest of the 1990s, she appeared in a number of independent films like "Inside Out," "Nowhere," "Stand-ins," and "Taking the Plunge." She landed a more high-profile role in 1999 when she starred alongside Drew Barrymore in the teen comedy "Never Been Kissed."

In 2007, she was cast in the Quentin Tarantino film, "Death Proof." She also appeared in the exploitation horror film "Death Proof" alongside Rosario Dawson, Tracie Thoms, Zoe Bell, and Kurt Russell. Though the film was a box office failure, it was a critical success. She also appeared in "Hostel: Part II." She appeared in another horror film in 2009 called "Grace." The film was screened on the film festival circuit in North America and received significant positive critical attention.
