  • Once she decided to become an actress, Ali Larter (born February 28th, 1976) swiftly became caught up in the late '90s surge of teen-oriented entertainment. A native of Cherry Hill, NJ, Larter began modeling at age 13. After seven years as a cover girl and a globe-trotting Ford model, she opted to move to Los Angeles to set her sights on acting, and soon landed guest star roles on several TV series, including a two-episode stint on the WB's hit teen drama Dawson's Creek in 1998. Quickly making the jump to movies, Larter co-starred in the high school gridiron hit Varsity Blues (1999) as an alluring, ambitious cheerleader with eyes for Dawson's Creek heartthrob James Van der Beek's quarterback. Though her next two movies, Drive Me Crazy (1999) and The House on Haunted Hill (1999), were not as successful, Larter's status as an up-and-coming young movie actress was enhanced by the sleeper success of teen horror film Final Destination (2000), in which she sported a brunette hair color to suit her artist character's gothic leanings. The following summer, Larter could be seen -- this time playing characters closer to her own age -- in two more high-profile releases for the PG-13 set: first as Reese Witherspoon's possibly-homicidal sorority sister in the comedy Legally Blonde (2001); and later, as the main squeeze of Colin Farrell, one of the titular train robbers in American Outlaws . The next several years brought much more of the same for Larter, as she signed for supporting roles in mostly buttered popcorn pictures and Hollywood programmers - such as the supernatural thriller follow-up Final Destination 2 (2003) and the Ashton Kutcher/Amanda Peet romantic comedy A Lot Like Love (2006) - but her career took an interesting twist in 2006. That year, Larter switched venues, signing for her first major television role: that of Niki Sanders, a single mom suddenly dumbstruck by the discovery of her violent, uber-strong alter ego, on the superhero-themed serial drama Heroes. In 2007, Larter tackled two major roles, very different from one another: that of Marigold Lexton, a young actress who stumbles into the cast of a Bollywood musical, in the quirky comedy-drama Marigold, and that of Alice, a resilient fighter who helps save the world from a zombifying virus, in the effects-heavy video game adaptation Resident Evil: Extinction. Larter played a dangerous femme fatle in Obsessed (2009), and starred in Resident Evil: Afterlife in 2010. In 2014, Larter returned to television in the TNT crime drama Legends.

QUOTES FROM Ali Larter CHARACTERS

Madison
Why aren't you saying anything?
Clear Rivers
It's almost autumn.
Alex Browning
It's the end of June.
Brooke Taylor Windham
You're an angel.
Elle Woods
So how are you? Are you all right? You look so... orange.
Elle Woods
So how are you? Are you all right? You look so orange.
Brooke Taylor Windham
I'm just glad that it's you and not Callahan
Elle Woods
He means well. He's very brilliant.
Brooke Taylor Windham
He better be, for what I'm paying for him.
Elle Woods
[Elle is cross-examining Chutney Windham] Ms. Windham, what had you done earlier that day?
Chutney
I got up. Got a latte. Went to the gym. Got a perm and came home.
Elle Woods
Where you got in the shower?
Marina R. Bickford
I believe the witness has made it clear that she was in the shower. [Courtroom audience laughs]
Elle Woods
Yes, your Honor.
Elle Woods
[a sudden brainstorm comes over Elle] Ms. Windham, had you ever gotten a perm before?
Chutney
Yes.
Chutney
Two a year since I was 12. You do the math.
Elle Woods
You know, a girl in my sorority, Tracy Marcinco got a perm once. We all tried to talk her out of it. Curls weren't a good look for her. She didn't have your bone structure, but thankfully that same day she entered the Pheta Delta Phi wet t-shirt contest where she was completely hosed to down from head to toe...
DA Joyce Rafferty
Objection, why is this relevant?
Elle Woods
I have a point, I promise.
Marina R. Bickford
Then make it.
Elle Woods
Chutney, why is it Tracy Marcinco's curls were ruined when she got hosed down?
Chutney
Because they got wet.
Elle Woods
Exactly. Because isn't the first cardinal rule of perm maintenance that you're forbidden to wet your hair for at least 24 hours after getting a perm at the risk of deactivating the immonium thygocolate?
Elle Woods
And wouldn't somebody who had, say, 30 perms before in their life be well aware of this rule, and if in fact you weren't washing your hair as I suspect you weren't because your curls are still intact, wouldn't you have heard the gunshot, and if in fact you had heard the gunshot Brooke Windham wouldn't have had time to hide the gun before you got downstairs. Which means you would have had to found Brooke Windham with a gun in her hand to make your story plausible, isn't that right?
Chutney
She's my age! Did she tell you that? How would you feel if your father married someone who was your age?
Elle Woods
You, however, Chutney had time to hide the gun after you shot your father.
Chutney
[Chutney is in tears] I didn't mean to shoot him! [points at Brooke] I thought it was YOU walking through the door! [Courtroom audience gasps]
Elle Woods
Oh my God.
Marina R. Bickford
Oh my God.
Brooke Taylor Windham
Oh my God.
Marina R. Bickford
Balliff, take the witness into custody, where she will be charged for the murder of Joseph Windham. Case dismissed. Mrs. Windham, you're free to go.
Brooke Taylor Windham
Thank you, your honor.
Mr. Bludworth
Come to pick my brains?
Mr. Bludworth
Come to pick my brain?
Clear Rivers
Just a simple question and we'll leave you alone with your new friend.
