Sexy actress Jessica Alba's introduction to acting was a real eye-opener - she had to sign a contract in which she agreed not to look her castmates directly in the eyes.

The DARK ANGEL star signed up for the final episodes of BEVERLY HILLS 90210 and she confesses she didn't realise her big break would be so strange.

She explains, "It was weird. There was this contract you had to sign where you couldn't look the actors in the eyes, you couldn't say their names in conversation while you were on the set, and you couldn't stare at them.

"I had to do a scene with somebody when I couldn't look them in the eyes and I couldn't talk to them. It was really crazy."
