Biography

With an intense and exotic beauty that both helped and hindered her career, Jessica Alba was a polarizing figure for fans and critics alike. Graduating from early TV roles on "The Secret World of Alex Mack" (Nickelodeon, 1994-98) and "The New Adventures of Flipper" (syndicated, 1994-2000) to the lead in James Cameron's futuristic sci-fi drama, "Dark Angel" (FOX, 2000-02), Alba enjoyed widespread popularity at first. Once she made the leap to the big screen, however, the actress found herself weathering bad reviews, amped-up attention toward her appearance, and intense negative attention from bloggers, who attacked the multi-ethnic Alba for not embracing the Latina aspect of her heritage as much as they felt she should. Despite the naysayers, Alba continued to work steadily, balancing a series of failures like "Honey" (2003) and "Into the Blue" (2005) with strong work in successes like "Sin City" (2005), the "Fantastic Four" franchise (2005, 2007) and the romantic comedy "Valentine's Day" (2010). Alba's determination to grow and willingness to accept challenging roles like "The Killer Inside Me" (2010) boded well for her future and for fans who hoped to see the actress eventually silence her critics once and for all.
