Robert Rodriguez: I always want to work with Jessica Alba

Jessica-Alba-e-Robert-Rodriguez When Jessica Alba was 17, Robert Rodriguez turned her down for a role, but not because he didn’t like her – she was just too young for the part. In fact, the director liked her so much that he now wants her to be in every movie he makes.

Speaking to Wenn, Rodriguez said: “I met her when she auditioned for me at 17. She was too young for this role for this movie I was doing but I kept my eye on her because she was of the few Latin actresses I saw trying to break through. I encouraged her and said, ‘Keep going, keep going’.

“We saw each other over the years and we said we’d have to work together. When it came time for Sin City I met with her and there she was. It was hard to find the Nancy in the book because it was a very difficult character to figure out.

jessica“But I knew I liked Jessica and I wanted to work with her so I went, ‘You know you’re just gonna have to create a Nancy’. She created something that even inspired Frank (Miller) to write this next story for her… She created almost something new with him.

“I’m always trying to work with Jessica; she’s awesome. I’m trying to put her into every franchise I have!”
