Jessica Alba has confessed that playing stripper Nancy Callahan in Sin City provided her with her most rewarding role.
Speaking to Premiere, the actress admitted that the birth of her daughter, Honor Marie, prompted her to reevaluate her career and pursue parts in challenging movies such as Robert Rodriguez’s 2005 comic book adaptation.
She said: “When I was looking back at things and I had a lot of time to think about what I wanted out of my career and reassess it.
“I felt that now I’m really a woman, I’m turning a corner from playing girls into women, I look back at my career and thought about the most fulfilling experience I had had in films and really the most fulfilling was Sin City with Robert Rodriguez.”
Alba continued: “My focus now is all about the filmmaker. I worked with Garry Marshall on Valentine’s Day, he’s incredible in romantic comedies, there’s really no-one better.
“I worked with Michael Winterbottom on [The Killer Inside Me] and Robert Rodriguez again for Machete and then Paul Weitz on Little Fockers. My focus from here on out is about the filmmaker.”
