2003 saw King in the film Bulletproof Monk, alongside Chow Yun-fat and Seann William Scott, an adaptation of a comic book by Michael Avon Oeming.

After five auditions, a screen test, and a physical test, she landed the role of Jade, a character skilled in martial arts. Bulletproof Monk received mostly negative reviews from critics, who cited that the fight scenes were not as well choreographed or directed as those other genre films, and that the alternating comedic and action scenes were jarring.

In 1998, she began co-hosting MTV's fashion series, House of Style, with fellow model turned actress Rebecca Romijn.

Despite her success, King noted that she "remember[s] the times where I was so alone" and thought she was "never gonna be able to be a kid." In 2004, King, along with Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, and Eva Mendes was chosen as a spokesmodel for a high-profile ad campaign for Revlon.

In 2005, King appeared in a variety of film and television roles.

She had met with director Robert Rodriguez, who was a fan of her work, and at the time King was unaware that Rodriguez wanted her involved in the film.
