Underwood talks first film role

Carrie Underwood says she's happy with her first acting performance on the big screen.

The country music star plays a small but pivotal role in the film Soul Surfer, the inspirational tale of shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton.

"I'm happy with myself for the role and for the movie," Carrie said in Las Vegas where she had just wrapped up taping ACM Presents Girls' Night Out: Superstar Women Of Country.

"Am I going to win an Oscar? No. It was so much fun and the important thing is getting the story out there."

Carrie plays youth pastor Sarah Hill, a key figure in Hamilton's life and recovery after the attack. Hamilton, then 13, lost her left arm when a 14-foot tiger shark ripped it off while she was surfing with friends in Hawaii.

Soul Surfer is the tale of her recovery and triumphant return to the sport she loves.

Carrie says she was transfixed by the story and the message, which made it rise above other scripts and projects she's been pitched - and so far turned down.

The former American Idol champion was non-committal when asked if the movie is the beginning of an acting career, though.

"You never know. I'm not saying anything either way," she said. "I'm very busy with music and that's what I love, that's what I know.

"But you know this was special. It didn't fit into my schedule at all, but we made time for it. It was so special. So if something else really special came along, I'm not going to say never."
