Jessica Alba Says Good Actors Throw Out The Script

“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 talks about her craft in the latest issue of Elle and in the process angers a whole lot of screenwriters. See one of their responses after the jump.

“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. 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.”

—Screenwriter John August‘s response on his blog. [EW]
