Jessica Alba Hates Everybody

Humdee doo, humdee dum, 
here we are, we are as one. 
Come you, come him, came gather round, 
for here a Cin'merator can be found.
And if you look up high and low,
You'll see a righteous and goodly show.
So closer come, my friend indeed,
For all of us are those who lead.

At last, something I can pin on Jessica Alba. She was quoted in last weeks 'Elle' (something I reccomend all Cinemerators to pick up, you never know when it may contain something spicy that will tickle your fancy (what the hell does that mean?) [fish slap]). Anyway, she was directly quoted as saying, and I quote [margarine]:

'[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.' -Jessica Alba, on her career

FINALLY. The truth is out. I always wondered about that, you know. The movie making process simply can't be a collaborative effort, can it? This is Jessica Alba saying that Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer) are shitty screenwriters, when they're some of the best in Hollywood. What does that even mean? They just...don't use the script? Did Jessie see Tropic Thunder and take it literally? This is a mystery that needs to be solved. Recently (more recently than that?), some big shot screenwriter who wrote some movie called Big Fish that definitely wasn't even a good movie or even let alone Tim Burtons best movie at all came out of the closet and said that Alba is an idiot for saying this. Thanks guy, we know. Of course Alba will come out and say either how sorry she is or that she was misquoted. I really hope she wasn't misquoted. That might actually make me respect Jessica Alba (god, do I hate typing her name) a little more, just because she wouldn't give a shit what people think. It's kind of like the way I respect Armond White- I don't agree with anything he says, but it's still entertaining to listen to him. If this keeps up, I'd be willing to attend an Alba rally, where she goes on to say that good directors never direct the film, it just appears before the screen. The movie is never shot, it's always been shot. Editing? Nope. No such thing as editors. The movie is shot exactly the way it needs to be presented. If it needed to be edited, it wouldn't be a good movie, then, now would it? That's how good movies are made- the Alba way.
