Jessica Alba on ElleJessica Alba proved this month that she may in fact she just be a pretty face (well we probably figured that out after she voluntarily decided to be in Good Luck Chuck). While doing an interview with Elle Magazine Jessica said ? Good actors, never use the script unless it? s amazing writing. All the good actors I? ve worked with, they all say whatever they want to say.? Now I'm not saying the writers of Never Been Kissed and Fantastic Four were Shakespeare but you shouldn't piss in your own pool. And are you really telling me Paul Walker was improvising those jewels of dialogue in Into the Blue? Paul Walker barely knows how to put one foot in front of the other much less ad lib. Anyway, Jessica apparently has had some problems with the industry for years because of the quality of her films and how she always has to play the pretty girl (which she does admit to). Luckily now she is finding quality projects like Meet the Fockers. Here is what she told the magazine: On owning up to her choice of roles: ? I know I haven? t been swimming in the deep end with some of the movies I? ve done. I wasn? t trying to. I knew what they were.?
On her personality: ? I? m shy. I don? t like being the center of attention. But when I do comedy, I lose all inhibition and introspection. I no longer care.?
On gaining confidence in her craft: ? I? d been so afraid of criticism ever since I was young. Every time I? d get a critique or some redirection, I? d always just take it very personally, but now I have no problem with it. It? s just a chance to try things a different way. To play more with a character. It also gives me a chance to have some input, to use my voice.?
On being selective with her roles: ? The time I? m not spending with my kid has to be worth it, so when I sat down with my agents after I was ready to go back to work, I told them: It? s all about the directors.? Jessica in Elle
