Ali Larter

Born February 28, 1976

Ali Larter, cheerleader in a whipped cream bikini… what is not to like. All kidding aside, she was terrific in Varsity Blues and much more than the character let on.

Noteworthy

  • Varsity Blues – Darcy the cheerleader. Again, as I said above, she shed a different light on a stereotype. One of my favorite sports movies.
  • Final Destination – After a teenager has a terrifying vision of him and his friends dying in a plane crash, he prevents the accident only to have Death hunt them down, one by one. – IMDB.com
  • Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back – Larter is part of the all-girl gang. Walking talking bad girl stereotypes.

I’ve been in a lot of fiery relationships, and it is so exciting. But there’s a more profound feeling when the love is just real and not so painful.
