Jessica Alba

Though she’s consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful women in the world, Jessica Alba is more than just a pretty face. She’s held high profile acting roles and even earned a Golden Globe Nomination for her performance in the Dark Angel TV series.

Raised mostly in California in a military family, Jessica was heart set on acting starting at a very young age. Though she suffered a notably sickly childhood, she graduated high school early to pursue her career. She got her first big movie role in 1993 in Camp Nowhere, though it wasn’t originally her who was supposed to star. She was cast in a very small part, but when the principal actress dropped out, Jessica was called up. This was followed by a few television commercials, and roles in The Secret Life of Alex Mack and Flipper. She got her big break when Titanic director James Cameron cast her as the main character in his first television show, Dark Angel. The show ran for several seasons, and its action-packed plot led to her being cast in films like Fantastic Four and Sin City. She also appeared in several comedies, including Never Been Kissed, Good Luck Chuck and Love Guru.

Jessica Alba & Cash Warren

Though Jessica has found herself at the top of many lists counting down the “hottest” or the “sexiest,” she doesn’t attribute this to her Mexican heritage. “Not one race has ever accepted me,” she admitted. “I had a very American upbringing, I feel American, and I don’t speak Spanish.” Two important people, however, who have accepted Alba are her husband of almost two years, Cash Warren, and their daughter Honor Marie.

Alba was cast in Valentines Day opposite Ashton Kutcher. The film boasted a huge celebrity cast including the likes of Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Patrick Dempsey, Jessica Biel and Topher Grace. Meanwhile, her flick Killer Inside Me, also starring Kate Hudson and Casey Affleck, premiered at Sundance, generating a lot of talk due to its shockingly violent scenes. She will also co-star with Robert De Niro and Lindsay Lohan in Robert Rodriquez’s new action film Machete later this year.

It’s no surprise we’re anxiously look forward to seeing her in all of her upcoming cinematic endeavours!
