(2006), opposite Kal Penn, "Poseiden" (2006), alongside Kurt Russell and Emmy Rossum, "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" (2004), starring Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, "The Last Kiss" (2006), opposite Zach Braff and Rachel Bilson, and the recent ensemble indie hit "New York, I Love You" (2009).

Barrett recently starred in the Australian film "Matching Jack" in the lead role of Marissa. On her desire to play this character, Barrett says: "First of all, you don't see these complex, mature, witty characters enough for women. When you get one it's immediately enticing. That drew me to her. The circumstances she's in…it's absolutely the worst situation she could imagine herself in, yet she manages to deal with it with humour and stay open to life."

In 1997 Barrett was chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.

She is married to actor Gabriel Macht.
