Jessica Alba Topics
The most important thing I have learned in life was that being a teenager wasn't forever. I had a hard time being a teenager.
The photographers try to push you as far as you will go, but I'm not intimidated. It's part of the job. You set perimeters, and you do what makes you comfortable.
From a very early age, I remember thinking that adults were always acting like assholes. I couldn't understand why I had to respect them. My pre-school teacher forced me to write right-handed when I was left-handed. I didn't get why I had to change. Nobody could give me a reason. I have had a big problem with authority ever since.
I'm comfortable looking sexy. I don't push it with poses, although I like the ironic part of it. That's what makes it fun.
The movies that I do are usually physically demanding in one way or another. It's a good way to keep your health on track. Especially when you've been on-set for 14 hours, it's nice to relieve that stress in another way than having to rely on a big meal and wine.
I have my own spiritual thing, but am not part of an organized religion. I think religion is very special and individual to each person.
My first kiss was when I was 7, and it was scandalous because he was 10! I only did it so he would pick me on our neighborhood baseball team. And at the time, I thought it was great, but then it sucked because he didn't even pick me!
Men's magazines have nipples so why don't women have a magazine where men show their penises? There's Playgirl but not a fashion magazine like Elle. If there was a magazine like that I'd buy it. Nudity's not a big deal to me...I've said I won't go naked in any of my movies, because I don't want to. But that doesn't mean I don't want to see other people strip off!
Guys are stimulated easily. They are easy to manipulate. All you have to do is wear a sexy outfit.
Contrary to how people may feel, I've never used my sexuality. That's not part of it for me.
I don't hang out with the Hollywood cool people. I'm not out trying to make friends with people because they're famous.
I wasn't given a whole lot in my life. I was on the bottom of the class system. But I got wisdom. I never just did what people told me. I questioned everything. When I look back, it is really no surprise that I started working at 12.
I never really belonged anywhere. I wasn't white. I was shunned by the Latin community for not being Latin enough. My grandfather was the only one in our family to go to college. He made a choice not to speak Spanish in the house. He didn't want his kids to be different.
What happens when the looks fade? If I don't establish myself as someone who can act a part rather than look the part, I will soon be finished.
One of the reasons why I chose not to be a devout Christian is because a lot of people gave me a lot of grief for just being a woman and made me feel ashamed for having a body because it tempted men. I didn't understand what that meant because I was like, 'God created this...' That was a hard time in my life.
It's not always so great to be objectified but I don't feel I have much of a choice right now. I'm young in my career. I know I have to strike when the iron is hot. I look forward to the day when I can do a small movie and act and it's not about me wearing a bathing suit or chaps.
The secret to using power is not to use it. Just having it is enough.
I don't need to be in the press or seen. Just because I'm not in magazines or because I'm not in a movie doesn't mean I'm going away. It just means I have some sense of integrity.
I'm good at being sarcastic with guys. They don't want the quiet, prissy little things.
I used to come to Beverly Hills for auditions as a kid and think, 'Why don't I live here? Why don't I drive that car?'
