Ali Larter biography
Date of Birth: February 28, 1976
New Jersey native Ali Larter began her career as a model at the age of 13. On a gig in
Italy, she met Amy Smart (Road Trip), who was trying to be an actress. The two became
best buds and upon return to LA, became roomates. It was Smart who later got Larter
into some acting classes.
In 1996, Esquire magazine used Larter on its cover as a fictitious actress the editors had created to illustrate the hyperbole of Hollywood hype. Appearances on Chicago Hope, Just Shoot Me, and Dawson's Creek followed, but it wasn't until three
years later that Larter got her first feature: Varsity Blues, the James Van Der Beek
vehicle about football. As Darcy, a Texas cheerleader, Larter's big scene stealing moment came when she wore a bikini fashioned from whipped cream in an attempt to woo
the star quarterback (though in reality, shaving cream was used).
Larter soon found herself winning roles in several major projects over the course of 1999. First up was Drive Me Crazy with Melissa Joan Hart, in which Larter played
Adrian Grenier's girlfriend. She followed that up with The House on Haunted Hill, in
which she played one of several victims who are offered a million dollars to spend the night in a haunted house.
Final Destination (2000) with Devon Sawa and Kerr Smith came next. In it, she played one of several passengers who disembark an airplane when one of them has a vision that the plane will crash.
Larter also starred in American Outlaws as the girlfriend of the notorious outlaw Jesse James, played by Colin Farrell. In 2006, she became a regular on the new NBC series Heroes, which went on to become a huge hit. She married longtime beau Hayes MacArthur on August 1, 2009.
