Screenwriter John August Attacks Jessica Alba's Critique on ScriptsWhen Jessica Alba trashed on movie scripts -- apparently "good actors never use [them]" -- in the December issue of Elle, it didn't take long for a screenwriter to hit back. John August, writer of 'Big Fish' and 'Charlie's Angels,' wrote a scathing blog post in response to Alba's insistence that actors ignore the script unless it's "amazing writing."

"Following your logic, you've never been in a movie with good actors and amazing writing," August wrote.

In the Elle interview, Alba said the following: "Good actors never use the script unless it's amazing writing. All the good actors I've worked with, they all say whatever they want to say." August took apart those two sentences and turned around a layered and vicious attack on Alba.

"You're setting dangerous expectations," August said. "So if an aspiring actor wishes to be 'good,' she should say whatever she wants to say? That's pretty terrible advice."
