It’s been an interesting week for our Ali. Firstly, she randomly chose to have a fist fight with Sendhil Ramamurthy to see who can appear on-screen the least in the latest season of Heroes. I think Sendhil won, but I don’t know if he fought fair – I think he had help from the writers.
But there’s more…
Our Ali’s also been nominated this week for a Razzie for worst supporting actress in a movie last year, thanks to the extremely bad but still scary, Obsessed. Tish, pshaw and nonsense, Gawker says – she should have been nominated for the best actress Oscar for the same movie:
Larter gave a hilariously sly and knowing performance in Steve Shill’s well honed stalker movie send-up. Not normally known as a comedienne, Larter hit every line of campy cliche dialogue with a practiced flatness. Bringing to mind every eeeevil scorned lady from Lara Flynn Boyle in The Temp to Alicia Silverstone in The Crush, Larter has certainly done her hokey ’90s thriller homework. Her dead-on performance was so good that we almost believed that she was just a ridiculously bad actress. That takes skill.
As Hitfix says, she “was the only one winking at the camera”.
And as if that weren’t enough, she’s been off partying. First off, she went to the Calvin Klein Collection & Los Angeles Nomadic Division event in Los Angeles, where she signed an awful lot of autographs and did an awful lot of interviews with all sorts of random TV stations:
Then at the weekend, she was part of the ‘glam and fun’ host committee of Cindy’s Having A Ball, which was organised to raise money for the Joffrey Ballet and to honour Ali’s mum-in-law, Shelley MacArthur Farley, who founded the Cinderella Scholarship for Young Girls amongst other things. Look – there’s a young girl with Ali now.
I don’t know if she did any ballet.
As if all that wasn’t enough, here she is, together with Greg Grunberg, Zachary Levi and others, telling everyone about her favourite kids movies, ET and The Goonies.
And it’s only just February.
