Part of Larter's inspiration for becoming an actress was her friendship with fellow model Amy Smart. Larter met the aspiring actress while they were both modeling in Italy and the two eventually were roommates in Los Angeles. Smart appeared in "Varsity Blues" with Larter and had gone on to roles in movies such as "Road Trip" (pictured), "Rat Race," "The Butterfly Effect" and "Crank."
