Jessica Alba - World Traveler

Because Jessica Alba's father was in the Air Force, the Alba family did their fair share of moving. Jessica Alba was born in Pomona, California but soon relocated to Biloxi, Mississippi. Later, the Alba family packed their bags for Del Rio, Texas. It wasn't until Jessica Marie Alba was nine that she and her family finally settled in southern California.

Jessica Alba - Acting Dream

Jessica Alba had dreamed of being an actress since she was five, but it wasn't until she was 12 that she took her first acting class. Jessica was a natural and landed an agent only nine months after that first class. In 1993, Jessica Alba got a part in the flick Camp Nowhere. A part that was supposed to last two weeks suddenly evolved into a two month gig when a main actress in the flick had to drop out. From that movie, Jessica started landing big commercial spots and eventually a re-curring role on the family show, Flipper!

Jessica Alba - The Action Hero

Jessica Alba's biggest TV role was in the Sci-Fi TV hit, Dark Angel, created and produced by oscar-winning director James Cameron. Jessica played Max, a genetically upgraded chick with a barcode tattoo and super-human abilities. The show became a big hit in its first season, but tanked in its second season, leaving Jessica Alba and her then-finace, Michael Weatherly, unemployed.

Jessica Alba - Big Screen Beauty

Since her departure from the small screen, Jessica Alba has been heating things up on the silver screen. She began making waves when she starred in the dance flick, Honey, in 2003. This year, Jessica is taking the movie scene by storm once again. Early in 2005 she had a major role in the flick Sin City, in July 2005 she became a member of The Fantastic Four and on September 30, 2005, Jessica Alba and Paul Walker go in search of sunken treasure in Into the Blue.

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
