Unexpected Reception

With more than 14 million viewers tuning in weekly, Larter appears on one of five Entertainment Weekly covers dedicated to the Heroes frenzy. EW's special edition reflects the success of TV's top-rated new series, which makes household names of formerly unknown stars like Larter, Hayden Panettiere, Masi Oka and Milo Ventimiglia. ''When we were doing the photo shoot for this story,'' costar Adrian Pasdar tells EW, ''we were all looking at each other like we were our own stand-ins. We kept waiting for the real stars to show up."

More Than Her Looks

Larter, 32, appears on the cover of Allure, which praises the Heroes star for her physical attributes. "My fiancé will always say to me, 'Please – you've got Hot-Girl Syndrome," she says. "I think that's where insecurity comes from, because it starts with being celebrated for the way you look...and it's weird that it's something you did nothing to get." In the interview, Larter reveals that she's been asked to lose weight by movie producers, but says, "This is what I signed up for...They pay me for it."

Be Her Guest
