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, “SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s said to me, Ã¢â‚¬ËœIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not a good teacher,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ but she really is! SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll mess around with me, and she always pushes me to go for a bigger wave and chastises me if I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve learned so much from her, which IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll keep with me for the rest of my life. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll always know how to catch a wave and keep from getting pounded.”
