It all started as a hoax. Esquire magazine portrayed then 20-year-old Ali Larter as fictional model Allegra Coleman on the cover of a 1996 issue and sent the fashion industry buzzing over who it really was. Turns out she’s a Jersey girl, and soon the imaginary creation ignited Ali’s career with some brief appearances on TV. Her film debut was in the teen football flick “Varsity Blues” opposite fleeting heartthrob James Van Der Beek.
She showed her range in comedies like “Legally Blonde” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” and now she’s a regular on NBC’s hit series “Heroes,” as well as enjoying being voted in the top 10 of Maxim’s Hot 100 for 2007. Ali admits she falls in love with all her male co-stars, so build up those acting chops. Hell, if she can gaze into Dawson’s eyes and find love, she doesn’t know what she’s missing.

Ali Larter on the Screen
You can catch her every week on NBC’s “Heroes” – the show that is taking her to new heights – as well as in horror films like “Final Destination” and “House on Haunted Hill,” comedies like “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” and “Legally Blonde,” as a sexy cowgirl in “American Outlaws” (as Mrs. Jesse James), or the film that started it all: “Varsity Blues.” Her career began on TV with appearances on “Chicago Hope,” “Suddenly Susan,” “Just Shoot Me!” and “Dawson’s Creek.”
Increasing her status as the sci-fi go-to girl, Ali is currently juggling “Heroes” and her upcoming role in the latest installment of the “Resident Evil” series.
On her taste in men:
"I hate pretty-looking boys. I’d rather have a guy with a potbelly than one who’s in the gym all the time and watches what he eats."
“When it comes down to it, at the end of the day, I need more out of my life and I need to push myself harder. And if at the end of the day I don't have it, then I don't have it, but at least I'm going to put myself out there. If I fail, I'm going to fail terrifically.”
