CAMBRIDGE, Mass. –
Harvard softball assistant coach Carri Leto Martin made her big screen debut Friday as actress Reese Witherspoon's body double in the movie How Do You Know. Martin filmed in Philadelphia and Los Angeles and was instrumental in helping Witherspoon prepare for her role as a former professional softball player.

"I was very fortunate to have Sue Enquist, the former UCLA softball coach, call me up and ask if I'd like to be Reese Witherspoon's body double," said Martin. "That doesn't happen every day!"

"My favorite part of the whole experience was training with Reese before the filming of the movie.  It was incredible to get to know her, and it was also interesting to see the behind-the-scenes of filming a movie.  It was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I will never forget."
