Jessica Alba ELLE December Cover

Jessica Alba ELLE December

Jessica Alba is the December 2010 cover girl for ELLE Magazine.  In the issue she chats about her movie role choices, her personality, confidence and her inspiration.  Check out some highlights.

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 acting:  “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.”

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.”

On her feelings towards being a leading lady:  “Now I prefer I’m not the lead. It’s a totally different approach-way better.”

On her early comedic inspiration:  “When I was a kid, I watched Lucille Ball every day. I watched Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Peter Sellers.”
