Ali Larter was just another 20-year-old aspiring blond in Hollywood when Esquire magazine asked her to pose for a November 1996 cover story. The story was a hoax: Larter “starred” as a fictitious actress named Allegra Coleman, who was, in the magazine’s words, “Hollywood’s next dream girl.” Larter assumed the job would end with a paycheck and a thank-you. Not quite. Casting directors saw the photos, and suddenly her career kicked into high gear. She landed a part as Reese Witherspoon’s sorority sister in Legally Blonde, and Larter’s role in Varsity Blues made her a household name—well, at least among guys—for a scene in which she walked into a room wearing only a whipped-cream bikini.
Then came another surprise: At 26, Larter walked away from the business, telling everyone she needed to do more with her life than be in movies in which she played the hottie. It was time, she tells Glamour, to grow up.
Now, at age 32, Larter’s back, and she’s thriving. Not only is she one of the stars of the NBC hit series Heroes; she’s also making movies that she finds more fulfilling, like the upcoming thriller Obsessed. For this interview, the actress bounces into a Los Angeles hotel lobby (a giant engagement ring on her left hand, courtesy of her fiancé, actor Hayes MacArthur), slides onto a couch and tells me, “Bring it on.” OK then!
Glamour: Ali, is there anything you miss about your twenties?
Ali Larter: That’s interesting. Let me think.
Glamour: By your pause, can I assume the answer is you miss nothing?
AL: I feel lucky that I’m where I am today…doing a job I love and being with the person I’m going to spend my life with.
I just found this review for Marigold:
I must admit that I’m not sure why Ali Larter isn’t a bigger star. I mean yes, of course, she earned her big cinematic break playing a Varsity Blues bimbo but she made intelligent choices thereafter with the cult teen scarefest Final Destination. And despite a Hollywood absence for a few years to take a break from the sex-kitten characters being offered her way (Allure, 7/08), she’s rebounded much better than other late ’90s starlets who also first portrayed bimbos, such as American Pie’s Shannon Elizabeth. I guess, in retrospect, Larter and her fans should be grateful that she doesn’t have Elizabeth’s primarily straight-to-DVD career but the potential for Larter is undeniable.
Case in point: before her TV series Heroes “jumped the shark,” you couldn’t open a magazine without press covering it with multi-page spreads and articles, yet all the ink spilled seemed to surround the likable, funny Japanese newcomer Masi Oka’s Hiro and Hayden Panettiere’s perky “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World” character. Yet, honestly, while the sunny young Panettiere was used as the face of the show to maximize its youth appeal as the new Buffy, as far as women were concerned on Heroes, it was Larter and not Panettiere who played the best character in season one (before I gave up on it last Fall). As a New Age Film Noir heroine, Larter played a combo of the virgin and the whore dual personality all rolled into one without the cheesy melodrama of a daytime soap and we never knew which side of Larter’s character we’d see next.
We have a new layout! I have been working on this all day! I still have some organizing to do and I will be converting the rest of the site to wordpress soon. I really hope you all like this! Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
