Remember when Jessica Alba opened up her pretty little gob and explained how good actors never use scripts? Well, it seems that more of that disastrous interview with Elle Magazine has surfaced and it's only getting worse.
While working on FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER, Alba had a run-in with Tim Story, the director of the flick, whom she claims had some issues with her raw emotions. "‘It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica.’ He was like, ‘Don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.’” To which I have to question if she's allowed to directly quote the man, seeing as how she's admitted that she doesn't bother learning her lines.
It seems that the incident lead her to question whether or not she should be in the acting business anymore. “I’m like, ‘But there’s no connection to a human being.’ And then it all got me thinking: Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? Do people hate them so much that they don’t want me to be a person? Am I not allowed to be a person in my work? And so I just said, ‘F*ck it. I don’t care about this business anymore.’”
When asked why some of her movies weren't successful at the box-office, Jess laid the blame entirely on "First time directors." Oy. I would attempt to come up with something clever to tear this girl apart with but I am finding that she's just not worth the time. It's not as if she'd read it (or have the ability to, come to think of it) anyway.
