Alba 'Unattractive' In New Movie
Movie star Jessica Alba is so desperate to shed her sexy image, she's gone to extreme lengths to hide her beauty in new horror movie The Eye.
In The Eye, the actress plays a woman who receives an eye transplant allowing her to see into the supernatural world.
And Alba is grateful for the role, as she attempts to avoid being typecast as the sexy temptress she plays in movies like Sin City.
She tells British film magazine Empire, "In The Eye I'm really unattractive! I play a blind classical concert violinist who gets a cornea transplant and her world kinda falls apart - she starts seeing visions through the girl's eyes that she took.
"I have purple and red bruises around my eyes for a lot of the movie. Bloodshot eyes. Pale, pale skin. No make-up. Chapped lips, sometimes. And I'm not in clothes that are sexy - they're very conservative."
