Jessica Alba Quotes
Jessica: I just don't have a great feeling about what we're doing in Iraq. I don't know why we're there. Didn't we just give the power back over there? Why are we still there?

Jessica: I'm really good at being sarcastic with guys. That's the best way to hang out with them, because that's what guys like. They don't want the quiet, prissy little things.

Jessica: Living in L.A., everyone likes to mold you and change you. I don't care about fame, I don't care about being a celebrity. I know that's part of the job, but I don't feed into anyone's idea of who I should be.

Jessica: I just didn't like the damsel-in-distress thing. I could relate to young girls wanting to see her take care of herself. And because I'm so good at action, I talked the writer and producer and director into throwing together a little fight sequence. It ended up taking three more weeks to shoot it. But at least I'm not tied up and asleep until my knight in shining armor comes and saves me. So I thought it was cool.

Jessica: The movies that I do are usually physically demanding in one way or another. It's a good way to keep your health on track. Especially when you've been on- set for 14 hours, it's nice to relieve that stress in another way than having to rely on a big meal and wine.

Jessica: Thank you to the fans. I do movies for you. Practice safe sex and drive hybrids if you can.

Jessica: My first kiss was when I was 7, and it was scandalous because he was 10! I only did it so he would pick me on our neighborhood baseball team. And at the time, I thought it was great, but then it sucked because he didn't even pick me!

Jessica: I like Spongebob Squarepants. He's goofy, like me.

Jessica: Since I've opened myself to certain things, all of these amazing opportunities have come my way.

Jessica: At a very young age I was very determined and very strong-willed, and I was going to make it happen no matter what, and nobody was going to get in my way.
