Biography

Jessica Alba (born 28.4.1981) Jessica Alba is an American actress. She began working as an actress as a teenager and has appeared in a number of high profile films, including Sin City.

Childhood: Jessica Alba was born in Pomona, California, to Catherine and Mark Alba. As a child, Jessica moved around a lot, as her father had a career in the US Air Force, though they eventually settled in California again when Jessica was nine years old.

As a child, Jessica Alba was often ill, suffering from two collapsed lungs, pneumonia, a ruptured appendix and a tonsillar cyst. At the age of 16, she graduated from high school and attended the Atlantic Theater Company, having expressed an interest in acting since the age of five. At the Company, she acted alongside William H Macy and his wife, Felicity Huffman. The school was developed by Macy and the playwright and film director David Mamet.

Acting Career: When she was 11 years old, Jessica Alba asked her mother to take her to an acting competition in Beverley Hills. She won the main prize and won free acting lessons. The lessons served their purpose and Alba was signed up with an agent nine months later.

Alba's first film appearance was intended to be a small role in the 1994 film Camp Nowhere, which starred Christopher Lloyd and Jonathan Jackson. She ended up in one of the major roles, after another actress dropped out.

Also in 1994, Jessica Alba landed a role in the popular Nickelodeon youth TV series The Secret World of Alex Mack, which also starred Larisa Oleynik. In the TV series Flipper, Jessica Alba played the role of Maya for the first two series. Before being recruited to the show, Alba was already a certified scuba diver.

Jessica Alba also appeared as Melissa Hauer in an episode of Brooklyn South, as well as landing a role in two episodes of Beverley Hills 90210. She then featured as Layla in Love Boat: The Next Wave. 1999 saw Jessica Alba perform in the Randy Quaid comedy P.U.N.K.S.

In 1999, Jessica Alba's Hollywood status was raised, with a role in Drew Barrymore's romantic comedy Never Been Kissed, which also starred David Arquette and Molly Shannon. That same year, she also starred in Idle Hands, a comedy-horror with Seth Green and Devon Sawa.

It was the Oscar-winning director James Cameron that gave Jessica Alba her big break, when he chose her to star in the sci-fi television series Dark Angel. She earned herself a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. This was followed up with a role in the critically acclaimed Sin City. The film was directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez and featured an all-star line up, including Elijah Wood, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Clive Owen, Benicio del Toro and Josh Hartnett.

In 2007, Jessica Alba appeared in another comic book adaptation, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, which also starred Laurence Fishburne.

In Honey, Jessica Alba played a dance-choreographer, alongside Mekhi Phifer and Missy Elliot. Good Luck Chuck was a romantic comedy in which she co-starred with Dane Cook.

Alba then starred in the 2008 horror movie The Eye, a remake of the Hong Kong original. Her performance received a mixed response, as did the film itself, with many people preferring the original version. Her other major performance of that year also failed to set to the movie world alight: a performance in The Love Guru, with Mike Myers and Justin Timberlake.

She then went on to work on The Killer Inside Me, along with Casey Affleck and Kate Hudson, as well as Valentine's Day, released in 2010 and also starring Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner and Anne Hathaway.

Personal Life: Jessica Alba was in a three-year relationship with the Dark Angel co-star Michael Weatherly. After meeting the actor Cash Warren on the set of Fantastic Four, she married him in May 2008. Cash and Jessica had a child together on June 2008; a daughter named Honor Marie Warren.

Lessons In Love Trailer


Richard Haig is a remarkably intelligent, charming, ageing poetry professor, whose life away from the classroom at Cambridge is one of constant hedonism and an unquenchable lust for women. He thinks nothing of sleeping with his attractive grad student Kate and even shamelessly makes a move on her hardlined older sister Olivia, much to her displeasure. Richard is forced to confront the consequences of his over-indulgent behaviour when Kate announces she's pregnant with his child. While fatherhood has never appealed to him much, he is ready to settle down, get married and experience family life, but when Kate falls in love with somebody else, it becomes clear that he's still got a long way to go before he can be considered a responsible person. Kate allows their son to stay with Richard, but only under the supervision of Olivia, who's about to teach Richard more about life and romance than he's ever taught about poetry.
