Jessica's ancestry is Danish, Welsh, German, English and French on her mother's side, and Mexican on her father's side. In fact, Jessica appeared on a television show that traced her father's lineage all the way back to the Mayans, so Jessica is partially Native American. She also has Sephardic Jewish roots on that side.

Jessica is a military brat. Her Air Force dad was stationed in Biloxi, Mississippi and Del Rio, Texas.

Jessica's first film role was in "Camp Nowhere" (1994). Her role got upgraded when another actress dropped out.

Some more cool roles followed. Jessica got noticed as a snobby high school girl in the Drew Barrymore film "Never Been Kissed." She also played the female lead in "Idle Hands," a stoner comedy.

Jessica now obviously was a star on the rise. James Cameron noticed and cast her as the lead in his television series "Dark Angel." She played a cyborg for two seasons. She got a Golden Globe nomination out of it.

"Dark Angel" put Jessica on the map in the science fiction world. She later played Sue Storm/Invisible Woman in "Fantastic Four" (2005). Why you would want to make Jessica invisible is a good question, and doing that is perhaps a reason why the film did not do very well.

Jessica also got nominated for an award for "Fantastic Four" - but unfortunately it was a Razzie for Worst Actress of 2005.

She repeated that nomination in 2007's "Awake," "Good Luck Chuck" and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."

Robert Rodriguez' "Sin City" (2005) was a major success, and Jessica was at the center of it. She played the lead, Nancy Callahan, in the film version of the Frank Miller graphic novel.

Jessica continued her role in the sequel, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" (2014), but it was not as successful.

Jessica appeared in "The Love Guru." Aside from virtually ending Mike Myers' career, it earned Jessica another Razzie nomination.

Since then, Jessica has done a varied slate of films. She was in "Spy Kids 4" and 'Into the Blue," voiced a role in "Escape From Planet Earth," and was in the comedy "Little Fockers." She did a lot of films during that period, including half a dozen in 2010 alone.

Jessica gets a lot of male attention. For instance, she was ranked No. 1 on Maxim Magazine's Hot 100 list in 2001. She also has made People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People list in 2005, and made the same list for 100 Most Beautiful People in 2007. From 2000 through 2008, Jessica was always making the hot girl lists.

Playboy tried to capitalize on her image by putting a picture of her on March 2006 issue as part of a "25 Sexiest Celebrities" feature. However, it forgot to ask for her permissions. She sued, and Hugh Hefner apologized and made some donations to charity on her behalf.

Jessica had the honor of being in the 2009 Campari calendar.

Jessica really doesn't need to act any more, because she has made some good investments. She co-founded "The Honest Company," which makes toxin-free household goods. Jessica is said to own about 10-20% of the company, which is currently valued at roughly $1 billion.

Jessica's parking spot at The Honest Company has a bright-green sign bearing her name. The company has almost 500 employees. Jessica takes an active management role, approving or disapproving products such as diapers.

The Honest Company faces a class action complaint about sunscreen, which plaintiffs claim is ineffective. It's kind of ironic because so many of Jessica's roles take place at the beach.

Jessica Alba legends.filminspector.com

The complaint claims that the company reduced the amount of the active ingredient, zinc oxide, by half. The company says it replaced the zinc oxide with other effective ingredients.

Jessica Alba legends.filminspector.com

The Honest Company also faces a suit alleging that some of its ingredients are not, in fact, natural as claimed. These are the kinds of issues you face when you go into the business world.

Jessica Alba legends.filminspector.com

Jessica has had a lot of high-profile relationships. She dated her "Dark Angel" co-star, Michael Weatherly, for a few years.

While Weatherly proposed and they got engaged, Jessica later broke it off. She later claimed the main problems were her naivete and the fact that her parents did not approve.

She later married Cash Warren. They have two daughters, Honor Marie Warren and Haven Garner Warren.

According to a study done for a television show, Jessica's genetic makeup is 72.7% European, 22.5% East Asian/Native American, 2% Sub-Saharan African, 0.3% Middle Eastern/North African, 0.1% South Asian, and 2.4% "No Match."

Jessica has had her share of controversy. In 2008, she was in a bondage-themed print ad campaign to encourage people to vote.

Jessica Alba legends.filminspector.com

Jessica also went around Oklahoma City in 2009 pasting posters of sharks on peoples' walls and on billboards and places like that. Nobody really knew why she did that, but nobody pressed charges. It was all some kind of "Save the Sharks" stunt. She donated some money to charity to make up for it.

Jessica Alba legends.filminspector.com

Jessica's film career continues, and she also makes a lot of television appearances. With so many irons in the fire, Jessica is sure to remain a Hollywood legend.
