Jessica Alba Gets Pumped Up

Jessica Alba stops by a local gas station to fill up after running some errands on Tuesday (November 23) in Los Angeles.

In a recent interview, the 29-year-old actress revealed how she almost quit acting while working on 2007′s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

According to Popeater, after director Tim Story critiqued Jessica‘s crying scene as being ‘too real’, she began doubting her acting.

“It all got me thinking: Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough?”, she shared in the interview. “Do people hate them so much that they don’t want me to be a person? Am I not allowed to be a person in my work? And so I just said, ‘F**k it. I don’t care about this business anymore.’”

    We can only wish she would quit! Worst. Actress. Ever!

  • Bernard

    Tell her to get over herself. This is the person who said “we didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us!”. Good grief.

  • Laki

    Oh my God,shut up!
    You’re so annoying.

  • Emma

    It’s not about people hating her. SOme people just aren’t as talented as others and she’s not an instinctive actress or natural talent. She has to work at it if she wants to become good, because unfortunately, she just isn’t a good actress.

  • yes!

    she is so nice! not the best actress but not so bad!

  • LastWord

    You have actors that can make a bad movie good, Denzel Washington/Leo Dicaprio. Then you have actors that can make a movie unwatchable, Ben Affleck. And then you have actors that add something to a movie but never take away from it, Jessica Alba/Shai Lebeouf. There are a lot of ugly to average looking actresses with the same skill level as Jessica, but they’re looked at as artistic and talented. If Jessica looked like Anne Hathaway people would say shes a great actress. Thats just how it is.

  • Pachy

    She is a lousy actress, her films are unwatchable.

  • korea

    aww poor Jessica!! She’s an average person after all! lol and
    @LastWord: excuse me, Anne Hathaway is a very good actress and very pretty. She has class.

  • ModestMouse

    @LastWord: How does even make any sense considering Anne Hathaway is considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood?

  • Thai

    @Bernard:

    Did she really say that? Even so, she’s zero as an actress. Shey may be pretty, but thats it.

  • Whaaa?

    She should have just quit acting. Like we care. She is so bad she makes all the other actors on Fantastic Four look good.

    Isn’t this moron the one that went and plastered dolphin posters all over a city, got caught and almost charged with vandalism and cried her way out of it? Whaaaa whaaaa I didn’t know, poor me! The idiot was caught on camera and they just let her go.

  • xxxxxxxx

    i wish i could see her ”beauty” but she’s so normal looking to me. i wouldn’t turn my head around if i would see her on the street

  • nayah82

    Omg can this bit** stop complaining, we get it you want to be taken seriously, but taking your clothes off is not helping your case honey.
    START TAKING ACTING LESSONS AND STOP POSING IN MEN MAGS
    IF YOU WANT RESPECT. ONCE YOU GET IT , YOU CAN DO WANT YOU WANT, JUST TAKE ANGELINA AS AN EXAMPLE BIT**.

  • dvdsw

    Shes the most beautiful woman in the world!
    and stfu shes a good actress

  • laverdadduele

    Another stupid post about a hasbeen. Pointless.

  • http://bover over

    does she really think she is a good actress? another ungrateful talentless wacktress

  • ashley.rose

    I think she’s fantastic. Most of you won’t agree, but there’s something about what she does on screen mixed with who she is that I just really like. I think she has a lot of heart and her work in The Killer Inside Me, was so unbearably raw, I was blown away.
    And she didn’t say “we didn’t cross the border the border crossed us” her character in Machete said that. If you people are going to hate at least get your facts right.

  • Michelle

    She’s famous for her looks not her acting ability. Worst actress I don’t see Oscar.. Sorry.. Jessica is a pretty girl but not a good actress at all.

  • true

    Haha is she serious? “Too real”? Has she seen those photos of herself “crying” in that mag shoot recreating famous horror films. Woman, you are delusional.

  • LastWord

    @ModestMouse: Anne Hathaway is average looking. I can walk down the street and see girls that look like her. Who says she is 1 of the most beautiful women????

  • http://thepundit.net craig stairs

    im just curious if she’ll be starring in anymore racewar movies. from what I read about her on wikipedia she isn’t hispanic.

  • Jack

    I really like her look in these pics – the hair, the clothes, the heels! Nice!
    Probably not the best actress but certainly the most beautiful imho.
    And very down-to-earth & nice.

  • juliya

    “Honey” WAS HORRIBLE! and the way she cried in “The Killer Inside Me” that made me laugh. Oh Jessica! You are a true comedian…thats where your talent. Cash is not bad either, he looks like a jester most of the time.

  • http://whoops whoops

    she is not only a poor actress but not very smart either, after reading this article, i went back and read some others and boy does she think highly of herself and she basically trashed most of her filmography and she has never blamed herself ever for her terrible films. Check classic Alba bitchiness below

    Movie star Jessica Alba regrets starring in 2005 diving thriller INTO THE BLUE, insisting it “wasn’t the greatest experience in the world”.

    The Sin City beauty spent most of the movie in a bikini playing Sam, the girlfriend of Paul Walker’s scuba-diver character Jared. The movie grossed just $18.5 million (£9.25 million) at the U.S. box office and was panned by critics.

    However, Alba refuses to take responsibility to the film’s reception, insisting it “wasn’t my movie”.

    She tells British magazine Empire, “At the end of the day, I was in, what, three or four scenes. I wasn’t starring in that movie. It wasn’t my movie; it was Paul’s. “But somehow it fell on my shoulders, and I was kinda responsible for it being what it was at the box office. But I in no way, shape or form dictated that.”

  • nata

    @Emma: I agree with you Emma! I don’t have anything against her, but she is just not a good actress and she has made poor decisions lately. Except for Machete, her other movies have been a complete box office failure.

  • realist

    @korea:
    Anne Hathaway is ugly. Inside and out.
