Fan email!

Welcome back to this blog about one of our best actors in the world! Jessica Alba
I absolutely love her! And i guess that you also do that because you keep visiting me and the blog. As you may have seen i have a page where i have written that you can contact me if you want to do a guest post on my blog. I have gotten a blogpost from one of you who wanted to tell us a few things about Jessica Alba that everybody doesn’t know. It is an email from a writer that calls himself “the banana-bread man”. This is what he has written for us:

Hi all fans of Jessica Alba. I have also had a flu of the Alba-fever. It has actually been in my body for a couple of years now. I know how you all feel, it is an amazing thing to follow an actor or celebrity. I fell in love with Jessica Alba when i watched the Fantastic Four the first time. When she was turned into Invisible Woman i knew it was love at first sight. She was so incredible in the movie and was super beautiful. After i saw the movie I started searching around online to find out some more about Jessica Alba, her life and what she has done before. I binge watched all episodes of Dark Angel and i understand why she got all awards for best breakthrough. Yes, that was a little bit about my crush on Jessica Alba. I know it seems creepy but it is not that kind of love where you stalk the celebrity or want to spend the rest of your life with her, i know that she is taken and has children with another man. Of course it would have been great, but we don’t know each other. I know the Jessica that she is on screen, but not the one she is private and that is something that you have to respect. Now i have to tell you something that i came to think of when you wrote about all the different awards that Jessica has gotten. She has also been nominated for best celebrity poker player at an evnt where celebrities played poker for a good cause. She didn’t win but she was stunning when she took part in the competition. / Banana bread man

After i read this letter from mr banana-bread man i decided that if Jessica Alba can play poker then so am i going to! I don’t really know the basis but i learned everything on this site that explained it very simple so that even beginners like me could understand! I don’t know if i will win, but hey, if Alba doesn’t win, i don’t have to. I will tell you how it went when i have tried! Please keep writing to me if you have some fun facts about Jessica or has a story that i can post!

Until the next time, kisses for you in the Alba army!

 

Movie talk!

It’s been a while, but a after the summer i am back with more information about the best actor in the world!
Time for movie talk! Jessica Alba has participated in several movies, some of them are good, some of them are ok, and some are just bad. Today I will tell you about two of the movies, I start with the good one.

Sin City

I have mentioned Sin City earlier in this blog post. It´s the movie that Jessica Alba has done that has the best rating at the film site IMDB. Sin City is rated 8,1 of 10 at IMDB. At rottentomatoes, an other review site, the film has got 3,3 of 5 in average rating and 78 percent of the viewers liked the movie.

In 2014 Sin City got an sequel that didn’t get as high ratings as the first movie. Right now it only has 6,5 of 10 in rating at IMDB.

The movie Sin City is based on a graphic novel with the same name written by Franck Miller. Miller was also part of the directors team in the movie together with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. He is also one of the producers of the movie that have several superstars in the roles. Jessica Alba is just one of them, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Michael Madsen are some others but the list could be made much longer!

It´s a really dark movie in all possible ways. It´s both filmed in black and white (except from some color elements) and the story is painfully dark involving a lot of killings and other horrible things, I can´t say more because I don´t want to spoil anything if you haven´t seen the movie). I really understand why this movie is placed in the category neo-noir action crime anthology.

The thing I like the most with this film, it´s the filming. It feels like you´re in a comic book.

Sin City has won several awards. Mickey Rourke won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor as I mentioned earlier. He also won the CFCA Award for Best Supporting Actor. In Cannes Film Festival Robert Rodriguez won the award Technical Grand Prize. Jessica Alba got the MTV Movie Award for Sexiest Performance. These are just a few of the awards that Sin City won.

Now till one of the bad movies. Do you remember that I wrote about a party night with Jessica Alba movie marathon I should have with some couple of guys I met at a party? Now we have had that Alba Marathon and one of the films we saw was Entourage. I hadn’t seen the movie before, and afterwards I wished that I never had seen it.

First of all, Jessica Alba only had a minor role in the movie. She acted as herself. That was boring. Secondly, the movie was so full of stereotypes and the whole story was boring. I don´t understand why the movie is one of the best rated Alba-movies at IMDB. I don´t recommend anyone to see it. The only one that was good in the film was Jeremy Piven in his role as Ari Gold, a film agent.

Jessica Alba wasn´t the only celebrity in this movie. It was full of famous people that acted themselves. Some of them was David Arquette, Mark Wahlberg, Mike Tyson and Warren Buffett

Events that Jessica Alba has been a part of

Hello everyone! I thought that i should tell you a little bit about the different events that Jessica often visit or are invited to. Of course she always look stunning on the red carpet! I know i wrote event but i think it will be mostly awards that she has been rewarded with that I’m going to focus on. Mostly because it is so funny of course!

The awards that Jessica Alba has won are:
2001 Alma Award – Breakthrough Actress of the Year
2001 Saturn Award – Best Actress on Television
2001 TV Guide Award – Breakout star of the Year
2005 Young Hollywood Awards – Superstar of Tomorrow
2006 MTV Movie Award – Sexiest Performance
2006 Scream Award – Sexiest Superhero
2007 Spike TV Guy’s Choice Awards – Hottest Jessica
2008 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Favorite Female Movie Star
2011 Alma Award – Favorite Movie Actress
2016 Webby Award – Entrepreneur of the Year

As you can se Jessica has gotten some sweet awards during her career and with new movies coming up this year I can only believe that she will get some nominations at least. She got a lot of prices for best breakthrough the year of 2001. She was part of the TV-series Dark Angel and that’s when she began her carrier even more! It wasn’t the first thing she did in the industry as i wrote in my first post. If you have missed it you can read it here. After the Dark Angel series Alba sure got herself that breakthrough she was looking for and started to get some roles in movies. You can read about which movies she has been a part of in my recent post also.

The last award that Jessica got has nothing with movies do to though. The actress has since she became a mom, started her own company that produces non-toxic household products. It was when Jessica and a man named Christopher felt like they didn’t find the best products for their children that they started this company. Since Jessica herself suffered from a lot of diseases when she was young, she wanted her own children to not have to experience that. The company is called The Honest Company and it was inspired by Albas first child Honor. I think it is perfect to include what Jessica has said herself about starting this company and why:

I founded The Honest Company on this idea: Everything that touches you and your family, everything in your home, needs to be nontoxic, needs to be effective and beautiful to look at, and needs to be affordable. -Jessica Alba

True words of wisdom from this amazing woman. If you take a look at the site for The Honest Company you can get a free trial package from the company. Its either a package with diapers or a package with personal care and home cleaning essentials. I couldn’t think anything other from this incredible woman, and that she offers this is truly beautiful. To try out the products and then realize if you like them or not is not something that a lot of companies would offer. I think it is great!

Jessica Alba party!

Recently I was at a party. It was really fun, we sang karaoke and fried different things in a fryer. In the late hours I told everybody about my newly started blog about Jessica Alba and to my great joy some of them asked if they could write a post about Alba in my blog. Do I have to say that it was only men who was interested in this blog? 🙂

Now I look forward to receive a couple of interesting blog posts from these men. But i think it will take some time because they really wanted it to be good. Instead i am going to tell you a little bit about our plans for the future! I hope you think it sounds like a great idea.

One of the men came up with the idea that all of us should have a real party night together and end it with a Jessica Alba movie marathon. We have planned it all in detail and the party night shall start with dinner at a restaurant, then we will move on to the casino and later we will walk to a nigh club nearby for drinking and dancing. Before we head home we buy some quite greasy hamburgers and french fries at a snack bar. Well at home it’s time for the Jessica Alba marathon!

The movies we plan to see are the three ones that have the highest rating at IMDB, except for Knocked Up where she only has a minor role as herself.

As you can see in the list at IMDB Sin City has the best rating of all the movies with 8,1 in rating. So that film is a must to see on our movie night. The next best rating has Entourage and Machete, they both have 6,7 in ratings at IMDB. So I think it will be these three films we are going to choose if nothing unexpected happens. In Entourage she also only has a small role, but that is a kind of movie that we will enjoy together so we will take it anyway.

I am really looking forward to our party night! There’s just one problem, I have never visited a real casino before. I have played some slots online before, but I don´t know how to play roulette or black jack for example. The guys also talked about playing some poker, and that’s nothing I can play
either. So now I have to learn how to play black jack, roulette and poker before it´s time for the party night! I will take help from the information here.

snacks to the jessica alba movie

The movie I look most forward to see is Sin City. I love that film! Except for Jessica Alba
the role list in the movie contains a number of big names like Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis an Elijah Wood. Mickey Rourke won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Mary in Sin City. The thing I like most with the film is black and white theme with the coloring effects.

Gift idea

If you have a friend who´s a fan of Jessica Alba, then you can make a personal gift for that person. Make an Jessica Alba memory game and wrap it in a nice little box. In the memory you can use pictures of Jessica Alba, film covers or anything else that´s related to her.

To make the memory bricks more stable, you can glue the printed pictures on a cardboard.

There´s no lack of pictures of Jessica Alba on the Internet! I wonder if any other celebrity has been photographed that many times as she has. If you search on Jessica Alba at google you will be completely awash in images of her. It´s just to pick and choose among them for your memory.

The fantastic thing with Alba is that she looks completely perfect in every image. This is regardless of whether it´s party pictures or everyday pictures. There´s no wonder why people have her as a role model and want´s to copy her style in every detail.

Oops, time flies! Have to sleep now, but check out the blog tomorrow for the right answers in the quiz.

Basics about Jessica Alba

The first time I saw Jessica Alba was in the TV series Flipper, you know the TV series about the dolphin named Flipper. I was really sad when her charachter disappeared in the series in the third season and I stopped watching Flipper.

Flipper was aired for the first time in 1964, and in 1995 they made a modern version of Flipper. It was a really thrilling tv-series with lots of action. For example Flipper the dolphin got kidnapped, key characters got in trouble and bad weather messed things up.

When Flipper first aired in 1995 Jessica Alba was about 14 years old. She acted as a young teenage girl called Maya Graham. This was one of her first roles, but not the first. The first was in Camp Nowhere as Gail, which was her film debut.

Many years has gone since then and now her role list are quite impressive. She has participated in more than 35 movies and 15 different tv series. She has also won a several of awards for her acting skills and has been nominated many times for prizes. It´s quite an impressive performance for a women with two children in the mid 30s.

Alba was born in 1981 in California. She had a very tough childhood since she had health issues and was home sick a lot. Her family was also moving a lot, something that made her feel even more lonely.
