Jessica Marie Alba, born on April 28, 1981, in Pomona, California, is an actress. She grew up a sports fanatic with rebellious behavior which becomes understandable as she was raised in a nomadic military family. Jessica was born to real estate agent Mark Alba and housewife Cathy. Her brother, Joshua Alba, is an actor as well. She once co-starred in one episode of “Dark Angel” with him, entitled “…And Jesus Brought a Casserole.”
Jessica Alba also appeared as Melissa Hauer in an episode of Brooklyn South, as well as landing a role in two episodes of Beverley Hills 90210. She then featured as Layla in Love Boat: The Next Wave. 1999 saw Jessica Alba perform in the Randy Quaid comedy P.U.N.K.S. Alba then starred in the 2008 horror movie The Eye, a remake of the Hong Kong original. Her performance received a mixed response, as did the film itself, with many people preferring the original version. Her other major performance of that year also failed to set to the movie world alight: a performance in The Love Guru, with Mike Myers and Justin Timberlake. She then went on to work on The Killer Inside Me, along with Casey Affleck and Kate Hudson, as well as Valentine’s Day, released in 2010 and also starring Julia Roberts, Jennifer Garner and Anne Hathaway.
