'Fantastic Four' Almost Made Jessica Alba Quit ActingIn early November, Jessica Alba made headlines for her controversial interview with Elle Magazine for its December issue, saying "good actors never use [scripts]." This agitated screenwriter John August, provoking him to bash her on his blog. But now the rest of the interview has leaked, and it gets a whole lot worse.

The extended interview with Alba, posted on jessicaalba.net in PDF form, reveals that Alba contemplated quitting acting during the filming of 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.'

"[The director told me] '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.'"
