The 17-year-old actress opened up to the mag about her ‘teacher’ and good friend, Bethany Hamilton — whom she portrays in the upcoming Soul Surfer.
AnnaSophia shared, “Sheâ€™s said to me, â€˜Iâ€™m not a good teacher,â€™ but she really is! Sheâ€™ll mess around with me, and she always pushes me to go for a bigger wave and chastises me if I donâ€™t. Iâ€™ve learned so much from her, which Iâ€™ll keep with me for the rest of my life. Iâ€™ll always know how to catch a wave and keep from getting pounded.”
