What is it about the ridiculously beautiful Jessica Marie Alba that makes her so big a star? Yawningly, she is a regular fixture in the Maxim and FHM lists of 'most beautiful this' and 'most desirable that' (why not Kathy Burke? seriously). I say 'yawningly' because there seems to be a production line coming out of Hollywood where it seems it is a pre-requisite for young actresses to feature on such lists if they are to become successful. And yet Jessica Alba has shown at times that she has the makings of being a good actress. Yeah, she will never be the best actress in the world but I think it is an asset that she seems to know her limitations, working best and almost exclusively in the action and comedy genres. As well as her appearance in the television series Dark Angel (2000–2002), there have been appearances in Honey
(2003), Sin City (2005), Fantastic Four (2005),
Into the Blue (2005), Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) and
Good Luck Chuck (2007).
Have these parts stretched her? Of course not, but there is nothing wrong in knowing your limits.
And she looks great in a bikini!
