Quotes From Jessica Alba:

"I like Spongebob Squarepants. He's goofy, like me."

"I'm really good at being sarcastic with guys. That's the best way to hang out with them, because that's what guys like. They don't want the quiet, prissy little things."

"What happens when the looks fade?. If I don't establish myself as someone who can act a part rather than look the part, I will soon be finished."

"I don't hang out with the Hollywood cool people. I'm not out trying to make friends with people because they're famous."

"I don't need to be in the press or seen. Just because I'm not in magazines or because I'm not in a movie doesn't mean I'm going away. It just means I have some sense of integrity."
