Never thought I'd be thinking of inappropriate headlines for the girl from SPY KIDS, Alexa Vega. You know that feeling you get when you walk by the toy section of a supermarket and see all the fascinating toys kids have today that you'll never get to enjoy (remote-control dinosaurs, robot dogs, Nerf jetpacks, etc.)? That's the feeling I get when Robert Rodriquez makes a movie for kids (SHORTS, THE ADVENTURES OF SHARKBOY AND LAVAGIRL). Ridiculous as they may be, I probably would've enjoyed the shit out of them as a youngster, as goes for the SPY KIDS movies. The first one came out in 2001, and the next two followed a year apart, so there's probably a whole generation of people who grew up watching Alexa travel through time, space and video-games. I can't imagine what was going through their heads when they went to see SPY KIDS: ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD and saw a tall, curvy Alexa Vega step onto the screen. Who'da thunk she'd be the heartthrob of that movie, and not Jessica Alba? So while Alba was being locked away in movie jail, Alexa attended KIIS FM's Jingle Ball 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Cute name for an event, but terribly easy to make jokes about. Please, feel free to do so after viewing these images.
