Although she appeals a bit ''too'' much to males to have any chick flicks in the foreseeable future, ''Film/ValentinesDay'' notwithstanding and she barely appears in this one (see also Creator/ScarlettJohansson and Creator/MeganFox[[note]]although they're in ''Film/HesJustNotThatIntoYou'' and ''Friends With Kids'' respectively, they're not so much the main characters as each film's MsFanservice[[/note]]), she has almost certainly won some female fans by not hiding how difficult it was for her to get back in shape after having her daughters [[ThemeNaming Honor and Haven]]. She and their father Cash Warren married in 2008; in recent years she's devoted more time to motherhood than acting, starting a company called The Honest Company (specialising in non-toxic household goods) and authoring ''The Honest Life'', a book about this lifestyle. The company became highly successful, and Alba's net worth is [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoconnor/2015/05/27/how-jessica-alba-built-a-1-billion-company-and-200-million-fortune-selling-parents-peace-of-mind/ estimated to be $200 million.]]

* FakeNationality: Malaysian in ''The Sleeping Dictionary'' and Canadian in ''TheLoveGuru''.



* PlayingAgainstType: See ''Film/TheKillerInsideMe'' and ''Film/{{Awake}}''.
** But if you'd rather not see her [[spoiler: get beaten to death or play a murderous gold-digger respectively]] in those films, there's the little-seen ''An Invisible Sign'' - a rare non-[[FanService fanservicy]] role for her as a mousy, withdrawn math teacher. [[spoiler: Alba also plays a cartoon villain in ''WesternAnimation/EscapeFromPlanetEarth'' and a live-action one in ''Film/BarelyLethal''.]]
* ProductionPosse: Has now done five films with RobertRodriguez.



* StarMakingRole: ''Fantastic 4'' and ''SinCity''. ''DarkAngel'' also brought her to a lot of people's attention ([[TestosteroneBrigade especially the male variety]]).
* WagTheDirector: Her aforementioned "No Nude Scenes" policy is the reason why her character is always clothed in ''Sin City.''

* OlderThanTheyLook: She's in her mid-thirties, but thanks to diet, genetics, and healthy living, she could pass for a teen with no effort whatsoever.

Jessica Marie Alba (born April 28, 1981) started her acting career in the '90s, playing in a few independent films, making a few appearances on ''Series/TheSecretWorldOfAlexMack,'' and doing a couple of seasons of the revived ''Series/{{Flipper}}'' series. Then she grew up and starred in ''Series/DarkAngel''. And ''then'' she played a [[MsFanservice stripper]] in ''SinCity'', and Invisible Woman in ''Film/FantasticFour2005'', and wore a bikini in ''Film/IntoTheBlue''. She has a personal code about never appearing nude. At least not completely.
