Jessica Alba Covers March 2014 Issue of Nylon Magazine
Posted on February 26, 2014
Jessica Alba covers the March 2014 issue of Nylon magazine. She tells the magazine that acting is like a drug. She also talks about her approach to acting and her stunt training.
On How Acting is Like a Drug: "I don't have to be a boss; I don't have to be a wife; I don't have to be a sister. It's been liberating to be able to play someone who's a badass or promiscuous because that's the opposite of who I am ... It's like a drug."
On Her Approach to Acting Today: "I've played a lot of leading-lady types; they were sweet, aspirational, not terribly complicated people. I need to make sure I had staying power, so I went after tentpole movies that were going to be big and global. I really just want to work with directors who I think are cool, and on movies that I think are fun and characters that I think are interesting, whether that's an indie or a big movie."
On Her Stunt Training: "I know how to ride a motorcycle, I can do wire work like you see in circuses. I can shoot a gun. I know how to fight, too."
Nylon selected a great photo from the shoot by Marvin Scott Jarrett for the cover.
