Jessica Alba starred as exotic dancer Nancy Callahan in the neo-noir crime anthology film Sin City in 2005. The film was directed by Robert Rodriguez and based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel of the same name.
Despite her lack of familiarity with the novel previous to her involvement, Alba happily accepted the opportunity to collaborate with Rodriguez. Sin City was a critical success, grossing $158.8 million worldwide. Alba won an MTV Movie Award for Sexiest Performance for her performance.
Alba played the Marvel Comics character Invisible Woman in the film Fantastic Four the same year.
According to The Guardian, there is a paradox in the film because Alba’s character was initially admitted to the plot based on her beauty, despite the fact that her superpower was the ability to turn invisible.
Despite receiving negative reviews, the picture was a commercial success, collecting $333.5 million globally. Alba was nominated for Best Hero and Best On-Screen Team at the MTV Movie Awards.
Alba’s last film of 2005 was the thriller Into the Blue, in which she co-starred with Paul Walker. The plot centers around a couple who become involved with a drug lord after discovering the illegal cargo of a sunken flight.
Despite the film’s modest box office returns (a worldwide sum of $44.4 million), Alba’s performance demonstrated her versatility as an actress.
Why did Jessica Alba start The Honest Company?
According to the legend, during Alba’s baby shower for her first child, Honor, in 2008, she washed some of her presents using a well-known detergent brand. She developed unsightly red welts right away. She then started to worry about what such exposure to others would do to a baby with even more delicate skin.
How much does Jessica Alba make from The Honest Company?
