Jessica Alba - "Elle" February 2008
DON’T MESS WITH JESS
Jessica Alba is the February 2008 cover girl for Elle Magazine as photographed by Gilles Bensimon. Internet snippets below!
On meeting Zac Efron at the Teen Choice Awards: “He looks like a child with a lot of makeup. I was like, ‘My God, you’re just a little kid.’”
On turning 27 this April: “I’m anticipating it… I’m feeling old, yes… 27 was when Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Jim Morrison all died.”
On being more sober CEO than purring sex kitten: “I think there are ambitious girls who will do anything to be famous, and they think men in this business are used to women doing that. Contrary to how people may feel, I’ve never used my sexuality. That’s not part of it for me. When I’m in a meeting, I want to tell you why I’m an asset, how I’m a commodity, how I can put asses in the seats, not, ‘There’s a chance you’re going to be able to f— me.’ That’s never been my deal.”
