Jessica Alba Is Sweet On Sweden
Jessica Alba finishes up her singing and acting lessons on Tuesday (January 27) in Hollywood, Calif.
The 27-year-old actress took to her MySpace blog to defend herself after making comments when she asked a reporter what characteristic he liked most about new U.S. President Barack Obama. When he refused to answer on the basis that he was a journalist, she joked, “That’s it, be neutral. Be Sweden about it.”
Politically commentator Bill O’Reilly and TMZ then both made fun of Alba, insisting she meant Switzerland, not Sweden.
Alba then responded, “Last week, Mr. Bill O’Reilly and some really classy sites (i.e.TMZ) insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country. I appreciate the fact that he is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people…it’s so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland.” Alba then referenced Wikipedia to support her claim.
