    On owning up to her choice of roles:  “I know I haven’t been swimming in the deep end with some of the movies I’ve done. I wasn’t trying to. I knew what they were.” On her personality: “I’m shy. I don’t like being the center of attention. But when I do comedy, I lose all inhibition and introspection. I no longer care.” MORE FROM ELLE: To see more photos and info from the Jessica Alba cover story visit: Jessica Alba Celebrity Quiz Jessica Alba Runway Voting Red Carpet Buzz: Jessica Alba at the LA Premiere of Machete (Elle Magazine - @ellemagazine on Twitter) Follow FOX411.com on Twitter.

    On gaining confidence in her craft: “I’d been so afraid of criticism ever since I was young. Every time I’d get a critique or some redirection, I’d always just take it very personally, but now I have no problem with it. It’s just a chance to try things a different way. To play more with a character. It also gives me a chance to have some input, to use my voice.” On acting: “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.” MORE FROM ELLE: To see more photos and info from the Jessica Alba cover story visit: Jessica Alba Celebrity Quiz Jessica Alba Runway Voting Red Carpet Buzz: Jessica Alba at the LA Premiere of Machete (Elle Magazine - @ellemagazine on Twitter) Follow FOX411.com on Twitter.

    On being selective with her roles: “The time I’m not spending with my kid has to be worth it, so when I sat down with my agents after I was ready to go back to work, I told them: It’s all about the directors.” On her feelings towards being a leading lady: “Now I prefer I’m not the lead. It’s a totally different approach—way better.” On her early comedic inspiration: “When I was a kid, I watched Lucille Ball every day. I watched Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Peter Sellers.” MORE FROM ELLE: To see more photos and info from the Jessica Alba cover story visit: Jessica Alba Celebrity Quiz Jessica Alba Runway Voting Red Carpet Buzz: Jessica Alba at the LA Premiere of Machete (Elle Magazine - @ellemagazine on Twitter) Follow FOX411.com on Twitter.
