It would be one great looking kid........
Is she pregnant or just burned out? Gorgeous, well-spoken, charming Jessica Alba, star this week of a new drama called “Awake,” wants an eight-month break.
Alba is probably not pregnant by boyfriend Cash Warren — or anyone else — but she told me the other night after the “Awake” premiere in New York that she’s ready for a break and she’s going to take it. The length of the break sounds like a maternity leave, but it’s not.
“I’ve worked the last two and a half years without stopping,” she said. “This is the time to do it.”
The 26-year-old actress is a little worried about burnout. This sounds a little premature for a young person, but she’s actually been working constantly since she was 13, including the two “Fantastic Four” movies, a hit series with “Dark Angel” and the long-ago remake of the series “Flipper.”
In “Awake,” Jessica gets psychologically heavy opposite Hayden Christensen and Lena Olin, but don’t worry, she’s still got her sense of humor. She’s filming “The Love Guru” with Mike Myers right now, which she says is as funny as “Austin Powers,” if not more so.
“I can’t keep a straight face most of the time because he’s doing what he can to crack me up,” Alba said.
She’s also got a thriller in the can called “The Eye” with Alessandro Nivola and Parker Posey. It’s co-produced by Paula Wagner, Tom Cruise’s partner for Lions Gate.
Jessica said the part came about from her meeting with Cruise to play the Keri Russell part in “Mission: Impossible 3.” She didn’t get it, but Cruise liked her so much he recommended her to Wagner for “The Eye.” Then there’s “Sin City 2,” which put Alba in an all-star cast.
And then it’s time for a break. What will she do, I wondered?
“Read,” she replied, among other things. “That would be nice.”
