Former DARK ANGEL star Jessica Alba was so repulsed by her own age when she
was a teen, she preferred socialising with her mother.
The 23-year-old actress admits her early exposure to the showbiz world led
to her spending very little time with youngsters her own age.
And she has no regrets about bypassing a potentially wild lifestyle.
She says, "I never fit in with my peer group, I never hung out with kids
my age - I always wanted to hang out with my mom and her girlfriends.
"I was on a TV show when I was 13, and I had a tutor for high school.
Everyone was like, 'Oh, you're missing out on the high school experience,' so
I'd go with my cousins to parties where there would be a keg and people doing
body shots and
"I was like, 'What a waste of time.' I didn't want to be doing E (ecstasy)
and making out with a guy three years older than me who's a loser."
