Jessica Alba: I’ll Never Stop Acting

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celeb News,

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba will "never stop acting."

Although the 32-year-old actress is branching out into other ventures, such as her lifestyle book The Honest Life, she'll always return to her main creative passion and since becoming a mother to Honor, five, and Haven, three, she's become "fearless" when choosing roles.

"I'm still so passionate about acting and have that as a creative outlet, and it's a big part of who I am; I'll never stop acting. [Having my kids] was the best time of my life. I love it - I feel more fearless as an actress after becoming a mother, which is quite liberating. I'm ready to take on heavier roles, where before I was nitpicky and afraid of so many things."

In 2012, Jessica launched her business The Honest Company - an eco-friendly business which specializes in organically-produced nappies, baby wipes and bath products - and she admits the launch did push her acting aside:

Jessica Alba Craving Some Action

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Action, Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

Jessica Alba in Dark AngelJessica Alba wants to make another action movie. The 30-year-old actress - who gave birth to Haven Garner, her second daughter with husband Cash Warren, last weekend - thinks it would be "fun" to appear in something similar to her 2000 TV series Dark Angel, which was canceled after two seasons.

"I'd like to do an action movie next as I haven't really done one since Dark Angel. It'd be fun to get back to doing some of those."

Jessica can next be seen in Spy Kids 4; she is a big fan of the franchise and thinks it will still entertain viewers in years to come: "I'm a fan of the Spy Kids movies. It's not just the grown-ups that get to do all the action to save the world. The kids do too, which is really neat. The first was my favorite and I think it's timeless. The theme of a family working together and enjoying every moment still resonates and will do in another 10 years."

Jessica Alba’s Fake Nude Scene

If you're a Jessica Alba admirer, you probably already know -- and have been disappointed by the fact -- that she doesn't like to do nudity. That's why a scene in the recent film Machete caused many jaws to drop. Well, prepare to have them dropped further.

Although the actress really didn't (fake) expose more than what we see in magazines these days, that extra amount of skin was actually the result of computer magic. As you can see from the before still on the left, the married mother of one wore a strapless bra and underwear for the moment.

Who says the third time’s the charm?

(Yes - higher ticket prices did play into this.) Afterlife‘s $26.7 million take surpassed the bar set by Resident Evil: Extinction in 2007. (That outing opened to $23.7 million.)

Since Resident was the only new wide release, the other notable events occurred outside the Top Ten. , starring Katie Holmes and Josh Duhamel, opened in limited release with a $45,527 debut. More importantly, the movie averaged $22,764 per theater—the best number for all films over the weekend.

Box Office Breakdown: The American Defeats Machete

The American

Although it lacked Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and Robert De Niro, did have two things Machete didn’t: George Clooney and a box office win.

Despite only grossing $13.2 million over the weekend ($16.3 million since Wednesday), the Focus Features entry hit its target. The movie - which was produced for approximately $20 million - managed to top the Robert Rodriguez-actioner by less than $2 million. The American also became Clooney’s best opener - outside of any Brad Pitt-related project - since The Perfect Storm in 2000.

, based on a trailer included in the film Grindhouse, came very close to matching the earlier movie. The Danny Trejo starrer debuted to a modest $11.4 million—about $200,000 short of Grindhouse‘s premiere in 2007.
