Jessica Alba is in Elle this month and I cannot wait until this issue comes out. If the quotes the magazine is using to tease the issue is any indication then this could be all kinds of awesome.
“Good actors, never use the script unless it’s amazing writing. All the good actors I’ve worked with, they all say whatever they want to say.” This of course is why Jessica has had such a great acting career to date and why those Academy Award nominations keep piling up for her.
Granted, Jessica does admit that she has not been in the most critically acclaimed films of all time. “I know I haven’t been swimming in the deep end with some of the movies I’ve done. I wasn’t trying to. I knew what they were.” So, which ones were the deep end of the pool, because I really, really want to see one where she thinks she was.
Apparently Jessica is also getting used to directors being critical of her performances. “I’d been so afraid of criticism ever since I was young. Every time I’d get a critique or some redirection, I’d always just take it very personally, but now I have no problem with it. It’s just a chance to try things a different way. To play more with a character. It also gives me a chance to have some input, to use my voice.”
Well then I guess we can expect another Academy Award nomination for Jessica in Spy Kids 4.
