Go To

Jessica Marie Alba (born April 28, 1981 in Pomona, California, The United States) started her acting career in the '90s, playing in a few independent films, making a few appearances on The Secret World of Alex Mack, and doing a couple of seasons of the revived Flipper series. Then she grew up and starred in Dark Angel. And then she played a stripper in Sin City, and Invisible Woman in Fantastic Four (2005), and wore a bikini in Into the Blue. She has a personal code about never appearing nude. At least not completely.

Over time it's come to light that she dislikes most of her CV. She thought Good Luck Chuck was borderline pornographic, The Killer Inside Me was gratuitously violent (she's stated she doesn't want her daughters to see it, and with good reason), and hated working on the Fantastic Four (2005) movies so much that she almost quit acting.


Although she appeals a bit too much to males to have any chick flicks in the foreseeable future, Valentine's Day notwithstanding and she barely appears in this one (see also Scarlett Johansson and Megan Foxnote ), 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 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 estimated to be $340 million.


She also tweets pretty often.

Despite looking entirely different and both having been in Valentine's Day (although never in the same scene), she is sometimes confused with Jessica Biel.

She had her third child on New Year's Eve 2017, a son. And yes, his name starts with H as well - Hayes.
