Actress Jessica Alba has been successful in convincing a Chinese girl not to go for a painful operation to make herself look more like the actress.
Alba stopped 21-year-old, Xiaoqing, who was willing to transform her looks to win back her former boyfriend, after surgeons in Shanghai offered to perform the surgery for free.
“I think you should never have to change yourself like that. If somebody loves you, they”ll love you no matter what,” Alba told the girl.
And Alba”s appeal has worked – Xiaoqing has decided against surgery, and has thanked the Sin City star for making her change her mind.
“I think it”s great that Jessica is so concerned about me. Her words also played an important role in my decision,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
Actress Jessica Alba has pledged she will never drop all her layers for the cameras.
The Good Luck Chuck star revealed she would never be comfortable without clothes on screen, thanks to her Catholic upbringing.
“No, I”ll never do a nude scene. I can act sexy and wear sexy clothes but I can”t go naked,” the Daily Star quoted her as telling Scarlet magazine.
“I think I was always very uncomfortable about the way my body developed, and I remember my grandmother would freak out and throw a towel over me if she saw me wearing just a bra and panties.
“I come from a very Catholic family so it wasn”t seen as a good thing to flaunt yourself like that. I can handle being sexy with clothes on but not with them off,” she added.
Actress Jessica Alba has confessed she never wanted to walk down the aisle.
The Good Luck Chuck star revealed she gave her husband Cash Warren a hard time when he tried talking her into it.
“I had a hard time agreeing with marriage at all because I feel like its been warped,” the Daily Star quoted her as telling Cosmopolitan magazine.
“Originally, it was two families coming together to make a stronger family. It was about survival – not love or soul mates. And now the way they market marriage – even as a kid through Disney movies – is that it”s all about Prince Charming sweeping you off your feet.
“There”s this mentality that you need the big dress and the big day – the day every girl gets to be a princess. I didn”t agree with any of that. This tradition of obeying your husband like he”s your king? It”s a load of c**p. Love and honor, yes. But you should love and honor yourself too, and all your friends.
“I chose to get married because, essentially, you”re given a deck of cards in life. The hand you were dealt with is your family and you can”t choose them,” she added.
Jessica Alba was left embarrassed while filming a kiss scene with Ashton Kutcher for upcoming movie ‘Valentine”s Day’ – because her chewing gum almost fell out of her mouth during the act.
The actress has admitted that locking lips with her Hollywood pal was ‘awkward’ to shoot – but shooting the scene got even more uncomfortable when a glob of her gum got stuck on her lip as Kutcher leaned in for a smooch.
“Whenever I”m nervous I have gum on the roof of my mouth – so I had it (during the scene) and my mouth got dry because I was nervous because I knew I was going to kiss Ashton. It got powdery and it got on my lip during my close-up,” the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
Alba said that her co-star Kutcher spotted the sticky situation and refused to let her blooper go unnoticed.
“He (Kutcher) called me out in front of the whole crew. It was really embarrassing,” he said.
After keeping a low profile after having her first baby last year, Jessica Alba finally decided to let her hair down, and that too on the beach.
The pretty actress was spotted at the Malibu beach this weekend, where she was frolicking in the sun with hubby Cash Warren.
The ‘Fantastic Four’ beauty was wearing the skimpiest of bikinis, and showed no sign of her post-baby bump as she soaked up the sun.
The actress has returned to acting, and told her fans to expect something different when she returns to the big screen.
“I have been working hard on a few new projects that I think you guys will hopefully love,” the Sun quoted Jessica as having written on her MySpace page.
She added: “I am really trying to push myself beyond my comfort zone. Will come back soon and post more details.”
Jessica Alba has said that she loves watching her 13-month-old daughter Honor Marie, growing up, but she has to be a “constant watchdog” since her kid has started moving.
The ”Sin City” star has said that she is constantly on her guard because Honor Marie, who is“ her first child with husband Cash Warren”, has become “so mobile” in recent weeks
However, the actress has confessed that she sometimes wishes to have more time to appreciate every stage of the tot”s development.
“Life moves so fast as a new mom. Sometimes I wish time would slow down,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Fit Pregnancy magazine.
“Every milestone is memorable, from the numerous wardrobe changes in her first five months due to her explosive diarrhoea to the first time she said, ”Mama,”” she said.
When asked to give advice to other first-time parents, Jessica said to trust your instincts but still listen to advice.
She said: “What works for you may not work for others and vice versa. I have also found that it”s more useful to stop and listen than to try and always have the answers.”
Just days after she ran trouble for attaching one of the United Way’s billboards in Oklahoma City, American film and TV actress Jessica Alba has made a donation to the charity.
An announcement regarding the donation came from the United Way of Central Oklahoma on Thursday.
Spokeswoman Erin Brewer has revealed that Alba”s lawyer asked the charity not to disclose the amount, but that Alba qualified for a program that recognizes donors who give 500 dollars or more.
According to the China Daily, she deemed it “generous” and “appropriate”.
The 28-year-old actress had been in Oklahoma City filming the movie ‘The Killer Inside Me’.
She previously apologized for putting up posters aimed at raising awareness about the declining population of great white sharks.
The actress will not face any criminal charges, according to police.
