Jessica Alba Vs. Screenwriter John August

jessica alba vs john august

We're not sure how popular this comment is going to make you, Jessica!

Here's what Jessica Alba has said about her thoughts on actors and scripts:

“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.”

Here's what screenwriter John August had to say in response:

“I have to believe she was misquoted, or excerpted in some unflattering way … Oh, Jessica. Where to start? … Following your logic, you’ve never been in a movie with both good actors and amazing writing. That may be true, but it might hurt the feelings of David Wain, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. … Screenwriters can be your best friends. We are pushovers for attractive people who pay attention to us. I wrote that bathtub scene in Big Fish because Jessica Lange made brief eye contact with me. So if you’re not getting great writing — and honestly, you’re not — ask to have lunch with the screenwriter. I’ve seen you on interviews. You’re charming. That charm could work wonders.”

We must say, John August makes some valid points, and he DID write the screenplay for Big Fish, which was an excellent film.

Sorry to say it Jessica, but you DID act in Valentine's Day and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and The Eye and The Love Guru.

Maybe it's not a terrible idea to thumb through that screenplay, every once in a while. Just a thought!

Team August or Team Alba?

  2. 2

  3. 3

    That was not a very smart comment Jessica.



  4. 4

    latina cant get and wont get good roles , she is not a star and she will never be soon she will be working for lifetime movies ha ha



  5. 5

    The writer's made the movie, not the actors.
    And BTW, can somebody tell me who was "All the good actors she have worked with" ….?!! O_O

    As the saying says…."Be cute and shut up!"

    i am a latina and i very much dislike jessica alba. she doesn't know how to act and the only reason why she has been moderately successful is because she is eye candy for the camera.

    this quote only shows how full of herself she is.



  7. 7

    She is a tool

    TEAM AUGUST. anyone with a brain would be too. alba is an idiot, like you said perezzy has she been in any good movies? and remind me, Jessica what GOOD MOVIE (hint hint perez's good actors in crappy movies) has ever been 100% ad libbed, no wait 25% ad libbed?…….
    exactly.

    Definitely with the screenwriter on this one. I think she would be able to say that if she was good actress…but the good actors know not to. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.



  10. 10

    Coming from an actress whose best movie is Never Been Kissed….thats quite a statement right there.



  11. 11

    Haha.. Screenwriters are for GOOD actors to use, Alba. I've never seen Alba actually be anything but the hot-chick-in-the-story, really :/ Ungrateful dumbass.

    August has this! I agree with him. Big Fish was an excellent movie with GREAT ACTORS! I love it so whimical. Ewan, Jessica, Billy Crudup, Albert Finney and Helena Bonham Carter. Now that's a cast for you. The bathroom screen was very tender. I own this movie. This one you can watch over and over. The flowers in field was a nice touch! Jessica you lost this round. Oh and Danny Divito as a Wolfman oh my god how funny!

    Good advice…I think if I were a screenwriter, I could write some really good parts for Jessica Alba if she were to provide me with sexual services on a regular, repeatable, consistent basis. Obviously she's not putting out, hence the weak parts she's been getting. Learn how Hollywood works, honey.

    I honestly cant believe that she herself thinks shes a good actress. Half the time I don't even think shes trying. When I watched The Killer Inside Me her preformance was as uncomfortable as the violent abuse of Casey Afflecks character, but on the contrary she was pleasing to look at until he disfigured her face…



  15. 15

    John August is now my hero. Alba needs to realize she isn't getting any real roles to begin with. Her ass needs a reality check.



  16. 16

    Jessica needs to get her head out of her ass.

    i dont know if she got misquoted or was just trying to be non latina cool but if all the actors dont use a script then why would there be script writers for actors to read makes no sense right there and if they all made up their own words that would explain her disasterous movies

    team august hes the big fish she is fish guts



  18. 18

    "No script", isn;t that just how Mile Leigh makes his movies?
    Would Mike Leigh use Miseralba? Bjork couldn't cope but Brenda Blethyn did gr8



  19. 19

    Owned.

    Is she serious? What does she know about 'good actors'.



  20. 20

    That explains why Jessica is a horrible actress who played in horrible movies! =)) Thanks for explaining Jessica.



  21. 21

    SPANK!



  22. 22

    Soooooo she is just admitting that all that bad acting in crappy movies is all her! Priceless! At least screen writers have talent. She does have a cute personality but then always says something publicly that is not thought out. Maybe rehearse those, not so great lines and you would get better reviews…just a thought.



  23. 23

    Once again, much ado about nothing. All she was saying is that most actors adlib. Which is 100% true. Very few actors actually quote the script word for word, there isn't much point to it. It's more of an outline than a hard line anyway. People hate because they like to hate, and are mainly just jealous.

    Well, Jessica, you're a terrible actress. The only good movie you were ever in was Never Been Kissed. Seriously, the Eye and Awake? And you didn't even try to act in those films.
