It’s the new, annoying celebrity trend: beautiful actress complain about how good looking they are. Just ask Jessica Biel.
The star has recently complained about the treatment she gets from directors due to her hot looks. We somehow doubt most women feel too badly for her, though, especially considering the treatment she also gets from Justin Timberlake (if you know what we mean!).
Now, Jessica Alba isn’t asking for sympathy for her appearance… mainly because she somehow claims that it’s nothing special. Right. And Halle Berry nude is an eye sore.
Here are excerpts from an interview Alba recently gave Parade magazine:
On always wanting to be an actress:
“I had a lot of tenacity from a very young age. I was pretty clear on what I wanted to do with my life — I wanted to act. My dad was like, ‘When are you going to go to regular school? When are you going to get a job?’ It wasn’t until my dad visited the set [of her television series Dark Angel] and saw how hard I worked that he understood.”
On growing up an Air Force brat of mixed heritage:
“I always felt like a fish out of water, and I never felt comfortable with kids my own age. When you move around a lot, and you look different, other kids bully you.”
* The Hollywood Gossip note: This is a problem Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt could also face. Just look at that name!
On the paparazzi:
“I could give two sh-ts about them. They’re so lame, I can’t even believe that’s a real job. I can’t imagine they even pay taxes.”
On being a sex symbol:
“I don’t really pay attention to all that. It’s only when people start to treat me like one that it really freaks me out. Most days I wake up and look in the mirror and go, ‘ugh.’ I don’t really think I look all that great.”
* The Hollywood Gossip note: Jess, take a look at Rumer Willis. Then you’ll see what “not that great” looks like.
On being a celebrity:
“I never want to be in the papers except when I’m promoting a movie, but if they have to, they’ll make up lies about me just to have something newsworthy to say. The more controversial the story is, the more buzz it can get, and the more it’ll sell.”
