    Default Jessica Alba: "I Never Slept My Way Through Hollywood"



    Jessica Alba has no problem steaming up the screen while portraying cowgirl-inspired stripper Nancy Callahan in Frank Millerís Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.


    Yet in real life, the wife and mother of two wants to make it very clear she's no exhibitionist on her own time.


    "Sex is absolutely what helps sell this movie, which is fine with me," Alba tells Entertainment Weekly in its latest cover story. "I'm also playing a character when people are taking pictures of me. That's what I do, but it is not who I am."


    In fact, Alba, 33, makes it clear she's really, really different than the sex symbol label that has been attached to her over the years.


    ''I never slept my way through Hollywood, so I never felt like I compromised. Apparently people do it, I didn't. I felt like I never compromised myself because I'm a prude. I don't know. I grew up Catholic. In my head I'm always thinking, 'Oh God, can my grandma see this?,' " she says.


    Alba says the sex symbol label was confusing at first, since it's always been at odds with the way she views herself.


    "I'm kind of a prude, and I didn't really understand," she says. "They would always ask me provocative questions about my sexuality, my this or that."


    "Sometimes I would lie and say something that wasn't true to make myself seem more interesting than I was," says Alba, who runs a multimillion-dollar Honest Company while being a hands-on parent to daughters Honor, 6 next month, and Haven, 2 Ĺ, with husband Cash Warren. "I mean, I didn't even know how to walk in heels until I went to the Golden Globes for the first time."

    Bullshit, she must be sleeping with someone. It's the only explanation for why she's getting interviews and magazine covers. I mean, has she done anything of note ever? Has she done anything at all in the past few years? I think I've asked this in a thread of hers before, but it baffles me that she gets any attention at all. Seriously, what does she do?

    ''I never slept my way through Hollywood, so I never felt like I compromised. Apparently people do it, I didn't.

    The way this is worded makes me think she totally did.

    I always felt like James Cameron was obsessed with her or something. The way he would talk about her and her body was really creepy.

    Apparently?! As if she didn't know, have seen, or been approached with the "casting couch situation" herself? Please.
    That word alone makes me think she's full of sh*t.
    Plus, it's not like married producers and directors are going to publicly comment that they did...

    In terms of a career right now, she is nowhere. I certainly hope you don't have to sleep with someone to go there. That's like the high school freshman who buys a pass to the non-existent school pool.

    She may not have slept her way through Hollywood, but her "acting" certainly puts audiences to sleep.

    But she has used her looks to get her roles and magazine covers. No one cares about her acting.

    Maybe she doesn't count oral and anal.

    ^ I don't mean to single you out but there are people in this world who don't bang everything/everyone the minute they get a chance. I know a lot of people who are not casual about their sexuality and who they share it with. Not everyone who says so it a liar.

    She annoys me, but I believe her.

    She hasn't really been put in any high profile or prolific roles, where she doesn't make sense. All of her roles (unless I am forgetting roles), are really just "body" roles.

    She hasn't been put in any high profile or prolific roles because she's a shit actress. Sure, some shit actresses get through the proverbial crack, but not all. I don't know or care if this is true but it is bizarre how she's lingered on for YEARS doing nothing.
