Listen to this story the Heroes actress relayed recently to Cosmopolitan magazine.
"I told my boyfriend after three weeks that I wanted to marry him and that we could do it tomorrow," the actress said.
And while the pair isn't hitched yet, Larter and actor Hayes MacArthur (who appears in the upcoming film The Game Plan) have enjoyed a steady two-year relationship.
"Now that I'm actually in love, I know that what came before wasn't real," she said. "It's about being there for each other through the ups and downs of life."
Overall, one might wonder where this brazen attitude comes from? The answer: Ali's native state. She grew up far away from the Hollywood spotlight.
"I'll always be a Jersey girl," Larter said. "I don't always get my way, but you'll know exactly how I feel about it."
