It turns out that Bethany Hamilton, the inspiration behind the new movie, Soul Surfer, is a big fan of Carrie Underwood. That's not too surprising considering that Carrie has her first supporting role in this feature film.
The movie opens nationwide on Friday. It features Annasophia Robb as Hamilton. It documents the real-life account of how Bethany, a competitive surfer, had her arm bitten off by a shark in her native Hawaii. No word on if the actual shark was cast in the film.
