12 Reasons Why Jessica Alba Isn't Famous Anymore
Posted on Mar 17, 2017
People are wondering what happened to this beautiful actress and why we don't see her anymore on the big screen. Of course, there was a time when she wanted to focus on her family and private matters, but there is more to it.
1. Alba Was Having Difficulties in Getting the Leading Roles
She confessed that the directors couldn't establish what her ethnicity was, so they were always giving her some "exotic" and foreign roles. That was a problem for a young, aspiring actress who wanted to play a leading role.
2. People Don't Seem to Remember Her Movies
Remember her role in 'Sin City'? You probably don't, but it was a good neo-noir crime movie starring Brus Willis. She had a supporting role. Then, she started appearing in Marvel movies...
3. The Movies She Made with Marvel
When she got a role in 'Fantastic Four,' we all thought that was going to be her big break. Unfortunately, even though the movie had a sequel, both movies did pretty badly. It was not her fault, and yet, it affected her career in the worst way possible. The movie almost caused her to give up on her career.
4. What About Her More Recent Projects?
Some of her more recent projects are sequels of 'Sin City' and 'Mechanic' with Jason Statham. Both of these had bad reviews and weren't very popular. Alba was not pleased with the results of that, so she decided to take a break from acting.
5. She Joined Taylor Swift in a Music Video
Hollywood just loved Taylor Swift when her career blew up. But, Alba's decision to appear in one of Taylor's videos wasn't a good idea. The only thing she got out of it is a nice walk down the memory lane, thinking about the time when she played a role in 'Dark Angel.'
6. She Took Part in the Remake of 'The Eye' and Many Unsuccessful Horror Films
Jessica had one unsuccessful horror film at the beginning of her career that no one remembers now. It seems that she forgot how bad her critic's review was, so she decided to take part in another horror movie - this time a remake of 'The Eye'. Critics did not have positive comments on this movie and people disliked both the movie and her acting.
7. She's Not Very Popular
People love to talk bad about her. At her prime, she was nominated for a Razzie award. It is the award given for the worst movie of the year, and she was nominated several times.
8. Beauty Products
Jessica Alba had a beauty brand called Honest. Nice name, but people's claims went viral with the accusation that Honest's sunscreen wasn't good and that it did not work at all. There were some accusations that her company's baby powder caused a skin rash, and they had to take the product off the shelves.
9. Alba Hasn't Been in a Box Office Hit in Years
She had her part in the Marvel movies, some horror and action movies. It is not what this beautiful girl had in mind when it comes to her acting.
10. The Beautiful Actress Allowed People to Forget About Her
She decided to take a break after all of the wrong moves she made and focus on her family. "I really stopped acting when I was 27. It's not where I spend my full energy," she stated. Alba has two daughters, and her plan is to spend more time with them.
11. Will We Ever See Her on the Big Screen Again?
People don't even know if she is going to come back or not. Two years ago, she said that she would like to get back on the big screen, and people have been waiting for that moment to come. A year later, she changed her story. "I think there are different things that interest me as a performer. The business side is where my heart's at," Alba explained.
12. Maybe There Is a Place in the Industry for Her after All?
If Jessica decides to start acting again, there is a successful method many of her peers and coworkers have tried, and that is to star in a TV drama. This could reinvent her career if she wanted to do it. We could still see her on the big screen!
