Best quote: “I think there are ambitious girls who will do anything to be famous, and they think men in this business are used to women doing that. Contrary to have people may feel, I’ve never used my sexuality. That’s not part of it for me. When I’m in a meeting, I want to tell you why I’m an asset, how I’m a commodity, how I can put asses in the seats, not, ‘There’s a chance you’re going to be able to f*ck me.’ That’s never been my deal.” — on not using her sex appeal in order to reach her goals in her acting career.

Why we love her: This week we gladly crown the beautiful Jessica Alba as our WCW. She’s been a mainstay of popularity throughout our generation and is set to return to her role of Nancy Callahan in the upcoming sequel of Sin City, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. This is definitely exciting news for fans as calling her a bona fide sex symbol of our time would be a massive understatement.

Jessica Alba was definitely one of those actresses that just about every guy loved as a teenager. Frankly, if you asked people who their celebrity crush was, her name would probably top most people’s list. She came to popular attention as everybody’s favourite dark angel on the James Cameron created show, Dark Angel. There have also been some memorable movie roles over the years, such as the leader of the popular group of girls in Never Been Kissed opposite Drew Barrymore, the completely loveable klutz in Good Luck Chuck, the bikini-clad diving babe in Into The Blue, as well as her popular role in Sin City.

On top of all that beauty is an entrepreneur and businesswomen as well — she recently launched her own company in 2012 that features toxin-free household goods, diapers, and body care products. She’s also been slated as #45 on TV Guide’s “50 Sexiest Stars Of All Time List”. Not bad for a successful actress and model, as well as full-time mom and wife.

Jessica Alba you’re our crush this week because you made growing up a guy a whole lot better, not to mention, made some good movies along the way.
