Alba's Awkward Meeting With Eminem
The SIN CITY star, who Eminem calls his "wife-to-be" in his D12 collaboration MY BAND, was looking for her director pal Bille Woodruff when she bumped into the rapper.
She says, "Eminem was in a gym, boxing or something, but I thought my best friend was in there. I come barrelling in all heated because I can't find Bille, and it's like five big dudes, Eminem and an empty gym.
"Everyone stopped. I was trying to act all casual, looking around this small gym that my best friend obviously wasn't in. Then I just left. That was the only encounter I ever had with him."
Alba learned she was name-checked by Eminem from her younger brother Joshua.
She adds, "He said, 'Did you know you're in Eminem's song? I was like, 'Oh!' It was weird, but I thought it was flattering. My agent said, 'Looks like you've made it.'"
