More Pics After The Jump
Jessica Alba's new movie 'Little Fockers' is flying high at the box office, but according to the star we almost didn't get the chance to see her in it.
After filming 2007's 'Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer' the 29-year old beauty almost gave up acting.
Director Tim Story was especially tough on the actress during the shoot, causing her to question whether or not she was good enough.
“I wanted to stop acting. I hated it. I really hated it. I remember when I was dying in Silver Surfer. The director was like, ‘It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry? Cry pretty, Jessica.’ He was like, ‘Don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.’ It all got me thinking: Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? 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?"
Luckily Jessica got over her bout of self doubt and we'll be seeing a lot more of her on the big screen in the future.
She will next star in 'Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World', which is due out later this year.
