American sweetheart Jessica Alba has been acting from the young age of 11. The actress has overcome overwhelming odds to success such as bouncing around from place to place with her Air Force family as well as overcoming major health issues. Jessica Alba is most well-known for starring in the television series Dark Angel as well as the cult classic Sin City.
How Jessica Alba Got Famous
She was born on April 28, 1981, in Pomona California. She had a myriad of health issues. As a child she regularly got pneumonia, her lungs partially collapsed twice, and she also had asthma. Jessica Alba was hospitalized for a cyst on her tonsils and a ruptured appendix. Because she was constantly in the hospital, she did not have many friends. Unfortunately, she is isolated due to health issues and attendance problems, as well as the frequent moving that came along with being a military brat. Jessica attended the Atlantic theater company after graduating from Claremont high school.
She won the grand prize of acting lessons when she competed at a Beverly Hills acting competition. This led Jessica to be signed by an agent. Jessica Alba began her career in a 1994 film called Camp Nowhere, a comedy starring Christopher Lloyd which got an 18% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Jessica Alba’s Acting Career
Jessica Alba then went on to appear in 90s kids television favorites such as the Secret World of Alex Mack, Flipper, and Beverly Hills 90210. Her popularity increased when she appeared in a minor role in that Drew Barrymore movie Never Been Kissed. Her first real lead role was Molly in the campy horror movie Idle Hands. She was featured opposite teen heartthrob of the moment, Devon Sowa. The 2000’s were good to just Galba. She was chosen by James Cameron to be the lead in his sci-fi thriller dark Angel.
But all was not well – the success was getting to Alba, who was battling anorexia during Dark Angel’s run. Everyone else in Jessica’s family was overweight, and she was afraid that she would end up the same. She continued to battle her eating disorder for years.
Dark Angel did go on to gain the young actress a Golden Globe nomination. Jessica Alba seems to attract as much criticism as she does a claim for her acting performances. Although her good awards and critical claim far outweigh the bad, she’s been nominated for three Razzies for Worst Actress, and actually won Worst Supporting Actress in 2011 for four different movies. Those movies were Little Fockers, Machete, Valentine’s Day, and The Killer Inside Me. Jessica Alba won two Kids Choice awards including one for Best Burp. She also won an MTV Movie Award for the Sexiest Performance in Sin City as well as a TV Guide Award for Breakout Star of the Year for Dark Angel in 2001, among others.
In addition to her acting roles, Jessica Alba has also appeared as a guest judge on RuPaul’s drag race and project runway. In 2003 she starred as singer Jessica Simpson on Mad TV. She voiced her characters in the videogame adaptations of Dark Angel and The Fantastic Four. Jessica modeled for an advertising campaign called to declare yourself which is aimed at getting young people to vote in the 2008 election. This campaign was controversial because it depicted Jessica wrapped in bondage-style black tape.
Jessica also participates in political activism and charity as a champion for gay rights, disadvantaged children, and women – as well as sharks. This got her in trouble in 2009 when she covered a United Way billboard with posters regarding a petition to save the great white shark. The snafu was corrected with an apology and a donation to the United Way charity.
