Jessica Alba covers the September 2014 issue of Marie Claire UK magazine in Louis Vuitton photographed by David Roemer and styled by Jayne Pickering.
On her past roles: “I don’t know if I was ever typecast, I just made very safe, boring choices as an actor and I take full responsibility for that. It wasn’t the roles it was probably the way I translated them. I was afraid to be fearless and bold. I was young, I was afraid of being criticized, and I wanted to appease everyone.”
On the industry being harder when she started out: “There’s much more diversity now; there’s a wider range of successful actresses and beauty. We didn’t have Tina Fey and Amy Poehler starring in movies when I was starting out. Halle Berry wasn’t an Oscar winner and there was no Jennifer Lopez.”
