Jessica Alba pap-walks with Honor after announcing her second pregnancy


These are newish photos of Jessica Alba and Honor Warren on Thursday. It was Jessica’s second oddly paparazzi-friendly outing since announcing her second pregnancy on Wednesday. Alba’s husband Cash Warren was tweeting about it hours after Alba announced the news on Facebook. First: Cash has a Twitter account. Quick, name his job! You can’t, right? Anyway, he tweeted: “Can’t tell you how much the positive tweets mean. Smiles from ear to ear. lots of love back at cha.” Then, Alba tweeted: “Ok ya’ll…have a great night. And again I can’t thank you enough for all of the wonderful messages you sent me today.”

Meh. At this point, that’s all Alba gets from me. I hope she’s healthy and happy and that her pregnancy goes well, but I’m not really excited about it or anything. I think it’s because I just don’t really get Alba. Generally speaking, her public image as a celebrity is schizophrenic, and yet so, so boring. I get it when it’s someone like Jennifer Garner, who at one point had her daughters in front of the paparazzi cameras nearly every day for something like four months straight. Garner obviously sells herself on a particular image – the nice girl, the good wife (in a bad marriage), and loving mother. Her fan base is made up of women, mostly moms, who adore her and her daughters, and who demand their near-daily dose of dimples. But what’s with Alba? At times it’s like she’s trying to do the Garner thing and try to appeal to the moms. Alba will do the paparazzi-friendly jaunts so the everyone gets photos of Honor. And then to mix it up, Alba will try to be a fashion girl, and work a red carpet like Charlize Theron… only Alba gets it wrong more often than she gets it right. And she almost always looks manufactured, like somebody just decided how she should look and she had no imput. And then after that, she’ll try to do the sex-bot thing, and try to win back her fan base of horny boys and young men who have already moved on to Megan Fox or Brooklyn Decker or Kelly Brook. And then she’ll mix it up and end up alienating half of Hollywood by disrespecting screenwriters and actors and anyone with half a brain. I just think she’s flailing, career-wise, and she’s just copying what other famous women do, all in an attempt to create some kind of persona. Am I over thinking this?

    That little girl looks just like her father. Hope the second one looks like her.

  2. Aria says:

    Kaiser, I agree with you. She’s nothing but a fame w*hore.

  3. louise says:

    Sorry but calling this a pap-walk doesn’t make sense. Jessica is photographed almost everyday with Honor. She gives Jennifer Garner and Gwen Stefani a run for their money for being constantly photographed. Plus she’s been going to a lot of redcarpet events. It’s not as if she was invisible for months then seen all of the time.

    zzzzz…wake me up when she gives birth.

  5. devilgirl says:

    Honor is a dead ringer for her dad.

    The best thing Alba ever did was that show on Fox she did when she was in her late teens. Since then, she has just developed in to one of the world’s worst actresses.

    She needs to hire a GOOD publicist. I don’t get it. If my job was to be famous I would make damn sure that people knew what my place in celebworld is. I mean just like a good business you have to offer a clear message and image to your audience.

  7. Quest says:

    Cute, cute little girl. Jessica isn’t much of an actress as far as I am concerned but her offspring is sooo cute.

    I love the “dude what the hell you buggin’ me for” look on Honor’s face in the pics. Funny.

  8. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @ Quixotic1205: ITA… Apparently she doesnt have the right person to market her.

    I dont get her either. I’ve seen movies from the past that were good but these days, her acting is really crappy..

  9. mln76 says:

    @devilgirl ITA I liked that show alot (can’t remember the name though). Of course she probably thinks she’s too big for TV now.

  10. Lila says:

    I read the title and thought it said “perp-walk.” I bet Jessica would be more entertaining if she turned to a life of crime…

  11. Quest says:

    Dark Angel I think the show was, she was a little on the plump side that time. I liked the show but since then her acting has declined

  12. Leticia says:

    @lila, hilarious!!!

  13. happygirl says:

    @brin – haha!!

    I don’t think she’s a great actress, either, but (hides in corner) I have actually enjoyed a few of her films. Yeah…I’ll pretty much watch anything, I guess. LOL

  14. Lardy Chops says:

    I know just what you mean Kaiser. It’s like she doesn’t know which camp she belongs in. She’s not one of the Hot Young Things now she’s a respectable married woman, but she’s not one of the Hollywood power moms who only had kids once they’d built a solid career. And there’s an absence of drama round her private life which has left her image a bit dull and safe.

  15. GeekChic says:

    @mln76 it was called “Dark Angel.” I agree, it was a cool show.

  16. serena says:

    Seems like she can’t find a path for herself in Hollywood. So she tries to be “someone” and it really doesn’t work.
    It’s a pity, she’s beautiful and she should start working seriously (first change manager and stop doing idiot-comedies) and maybe study recitation?. ahahah well, it would be too good.

  17. 6 says:

    This is just my opininion just to give a disclaimer, but doesn’t she have an odd look in the eye area? Like the strength to keep her eyes wide open is unbearable??? I don’t know maybe just me. She really is a pretty women but that eye area……

  18. JustBored says:

    She always has this weird expression in her face that I cannot understand. It’s like she is having cramps or something and in pain. Whether she is acting or just walking around the expression remains the same. I just don’t get it.

    That kid looks just like her dad.

  19. MarenGermany says:

    agree with kaiser, she seems boring as a celebrity, but whatever.
    hope, she is happy.
    i loved her in “dark angel”. i LOVED this show.

  20. sapphire says:

    She needs better “branding” ie better management. Meh. She’s no better or worse than a half-dozen other mid-grade talents.

  21. xxxyyy says:

    she doesn’t need a better managment, she needs a personality.. she seems like this bit.ches who lick everyones ass just to be loves by everyone.

  22. ctkat1 says:

    I agree with the person who said that celebrities need to market themselves like a product- they need a brand, something that marks them.
    Jessica Alba is trying them all out: loving mother of cute kid(s), fashion girl, sexpot, serious actress…none of them are getting her where she wants to go, so she’s flailing.

    If I had to guess, I’d say that she wanted to be more like Anne Hathaway (respected actress, multi-talented, sexy) or even Olivia Wilde.

  23. Mouse says:

    What the hell is she wearing on her feet?? Those are some UGLY flats.

  24. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    What they are is koosh balls, and I don’t believe for a second that I was the only one whose thoughts turned towards the clinical after seeing ‘pap’ and ‘pregnancy’ in the same line.

  25. crazydaisy says:

    i know a few teenage boys who 100% LOVE jessica alba, basically HATE M.Fox and don’t know Brooklyn Decker from a bridge, so I’m not sure J.A. needs to win any fans back… just sayin’-

  26. Theresa says:

    Boy, Hollywood has such a limited imagination when it comes to marketing a celebrity these days. Especially a celebrity with limited prospects as an actor, which is what JA is to me. The only films I have seen her in are when she has a bit part and I find I am annoyed when she appears onscreen, like she is intruding on the actual acting that was just taking place…

    That being said, I am sure she is just doing what her handlers tell her to; parade her child and husband around so that people will think well of her or try to relate to her, or parade her around at an event where her presence is as incongruous as her bit parts, in an outfit that is designed to get noticed (mostly for the bad) and perhaps all of these efforts put together will get them a decent 10% of something at the end of the month.

    The only problem with this is that her constant presence in the media, even if poorly orchestrated and sadly ineffectual, makes her think she has some clout, some crediblity which, vicious circle like, keeps her on the treadmill. She is taking up a space that is better filled by a talented young actor that would actually contribute something to the artform.

    Great skin though. Ahh.
