Alba Slams Racist Fantastic Four Critics

Movie beauty JESSICA ALBA has slammed critics of new movie FANTASTIC FOUR, for filling internet message boards and fansites with racist complaints about her casting.

The SIN CITY star dyed her hair blonde for her part as SUE STORM, because the superhero is a fair, white-skinned siren in the original comic book stories.

But Alba is horrified Fantastic Four fans are still upset about her Latina features, despite her acting skills.

She complains, "Everyone criticised HUGH JACKMAN who played WOLVERINE. Everyone criticised TOBEY MAGUIRE as the choice for SPIDER-MAN.

"If people get caught up in the fact that I'm half-Latina or whatever, that's their problem.

"I was more concerned about playing her the way she needed to be played - with strength and integrity."
