With some superb movies last year, Jessica Alba has become the most talked about leading lady of Hollywood. But it was not all rosy for her in the beginning. She started with some small roles and was soon marked as a sex bomb with such roles like the striptease she performed in Sin City and the skin-tight body suit she sported in Fantastic Four. But the 27 years old star is ready to expand her acting horizons beyond just being sexy girl. She now wants people to recognize her for acting skills rather than her sexy image.
