Belle was born in Los Angeles, California. Her mother, Cristina Gould, is a Brazilian fashion designer and her father, Jack Wesley Routh, owns a construction company and was a composer of country music. Belle was raised in a Catholic household. She attended the Católica Elementary School of São Paulo and then the Marlborough School, an all-girl high school in Los Angeles. She grew up speaking Portuguese.
She made her professional debut in a print ad at nine months. At age five she was cast as a lead in her first film, NBC's thriller, Trapped Beneath the Earth. Belle began her career with a small role in the film production of the novel A Little Princess (1995). In The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), she played a girl who was attacked by a pack of Compsognathus.
In 1998, she played Aubrey Shepard on the Focus on the Family radio drama Adventures in Odyssey. Following a turn as Steven Seagal's daughter in The Patriot (1998), she earned a 1999 Youth in Film Young Artist Award nomination for her portrayal of Sandra Bullock's character as a girl in Practical Magic (1998), as well as another nomination the same year for her guest appearance on the TV series Walker: Texas Ranger.
Belle played the lead role in the television movie Back to the Secret Garden (2001), then took a break from acting before returning with a role in the independent film The Quiet (2005). SFStation wrote that "performance-wise The Quiet belongs to Camilla Belle and Elisha Cuthbert"
She returned to performing after a short break with the lead role in the remake of When a Stranger Calls (2006). She then played a lead role in her biggest box office hit to date, the Roland Emmerich-directed big-budget film 10,000 BC. Since this $270 million hit, Belle has played a number of lead roles in smaller independent, direct-to-video, short and unreleased films. As of October 2018[update], her last film was The Mad Whale (2017), a student project produced by James Franco's Elysium Bandini Studios and the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
