The Story Behind 'Soul Surfer' -- JJJ Exclusive!

AnnaSophia Robb and Carrie Underwood serve food to tsunami victims from our exclusive new video about the story behind Soul Surfer.

The 17-year-old actress shared in the vid about the advantage of having the real Bethany Hamilton on set during filming: “She is not scared to talk about her arm. No question is off limits with her. it’s just so wonderful that she is so receptive because as an actor, I want to portray her as real as possible.”

Dennis Quaid, who plays Tom Hamilton in the movie, also complimented AnnaSophia‘s portrayal of Bethany. “AnnaSophia — you could not ask for anyone better to play this part. She is so dedicated as an actress and very natural. You don’t really feel like she’s acting and that makes everyone else better as well.”

Soul Surfer hits theaters on April 8th. Check out our exclusive vid below!
