Sonic Sky Angel
Jessica Alba may be best remembered as Max Guevara in TV's Dark Angel, but she is young (born 1981). Engaged to Dark Angel co-star Michael Weatherly, she is off the romance market but has topped the sexy babe charts such as Maxim's, Sci-Fi Babes' and FHM's more than once.
Working since she was a child, Jessica's schedule continues to fuel up with upcoming events Into the Blue (2005), Sin City (2005), Fantastic Four (2005) and 2006's Sonic. Nicknamed Sky Angel, Jessica admits she is a bit of a klutz, but with building busy schedules, who hasn't fallen from grace to clumsy and looked a bit goofy at times?
"I'm a little bit more of a dork. I run into things, and I'm kind of uncoordinated sometimes." Jessica Alba
"I like SpongeBob SquarePants. He's goofy, like me." Jessica
