LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ava Sambora, 13-year-old daughter of Heather Locklear and her now-ex-husband, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, has landed her first film role.
The stunning teen — who has already dabbled in modeling, walking the runway for her father’s clothing line, White Trash Beautiful — will appear in Judd Adatow’s “This is Forty.”
Ava will play best friend to Sadie (played by Apatow’s 13-year-old daughter, Maude) in the upcoming comedy, Variety reports.
“This Is Forty” is being hailed as a spin-off/continuation of Apatow’s blockbuster 2007 hit, “Knocked Up,” and will once again feature Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann (Apatow’s real life wife of 14 years) as Pete and Debbie.
Back in January, Apatow told HitFix.com that while the movie isn’t a “Knocked Up” sequel per se, it will continue to the lives follow Rudd and Mann’s characters.
“It is just a story from Pete and Debbie’s current life,” he told the site at the time. “People really responded to their characters and problems. I felt like there was a lot of ground I could explore with them… There are some fun details yet to reveal but I will let them come out slowly.”
“This Is Forty” is slated for theatrical release on June 1, 2012.
In related Locklear family news, Ava’s gorgeous mom is set to walk down the aisle with a former castmate – in real life.
The former “Melrose Place” actress is engaged to her former co-star, and longtime boyfriend, Jack Wagner, her rep confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.
The couple has been dating since 2007.
