Browse biogs A-Z

Before the release of Fantastic Four, The Observer reprinted a Rolling Stone article about Jessica Alba that pointed out:

"Of her last eight films, she has been nearly naked in seven of them. She is 5ft 6in, 34-25-34, and weighs around 120lb, depending upon her training schedule. But the numbers tell little of the story. Even beneath the baggy sweats she favours, Alba's body is a marvel of feminine proportion. A siren song."

Her parents held down several jobs whilst bring up Jessica and her brother. Jessica Alba was just 12 when she started acting classes in California and a year later she appeared in Camp Nowhere.
