Actress Jessica Alba says she and her husband are a huge fan of her Mechanic: Resurrection co-star Jason Statham. The 35-year-old star said Statham is one of the best action heroes in the industry right now, reported FemaleFirst.
“My husband and I are both fans of Jason Statham. I love action movies and think he’s one of the best- if not the best – action stars right now.
“I mean, what Jason can do with his body is insane. He’s better than some stunt people that I’ve worked with. I thought it would just be fun, frankly, and such a different thing to my day-to-day,” she said.
Alba talked about the range of roles she has so far played and said she was only interested being in an action movie if she had a strong role.
“I don’t know if I ever had a fear of being typecast. I’ve done comedy, drama, action, comic-book movies so I’ve made it a point to keep the work that I’ve done pretty diverse.
“I thought it was important that if I was going to be in an action movie at this point in my life, I should play a strong character, not just a victim or a damsel in distress, but someone who was tough, smart and capable,” she added.
The “Into the Blue” star said her one of the favourite roles was Sue Storm in the “Fantastic Four” movie. “I loved the ‘Fantastic Four’ movies because I remember
how fun it was to play a superhero.
“At the time, Sue Storm was one of the first female superheroes who was really the main character in an action movie. That was really cool.
