Happy birthday, Jessica Alba; the girl-next-door that took over Hollywood! (4/28/81) One of my favorite things about this blog is discovering personal things about the celebrities I’m analyzing. For example, Jessica Alba and I both have the middle name, Marie. We were both born on the 28th and we have one younger brother. Johny Depp is her favorite actor (mine too) and she enjoys a bit of SpongeBob Squarepants, but really, who doesn’t? Let’s check out her handwriting…
This amazing actress always knew what she wanted to be when she grew up. As a child, Jessica’s family was poor. She wore thrift store clothes and never felt she fit in. In her penmanship, you can see there is true gratitude, grit and determination. Her handwriting also indicates a bit of a rebel streak. She loves people and has genuine empathy. She’s not pretentious, what you see is what you get. One of her rules to live by may be ‘fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me’, she has the classic forgive but don’t forget sign in her signature.
Looking at dozens of her autographs, you can see how the J has changed over the years, and maybe even day to day. Most times the top is overly big indicating she has grand ideas, and an active imagination. It’s a soft, clear J. She has learned to not depend on anyone but herself and this is also seen in the first letter of her first name. The letter J’s totem is the bear, thoughtful and calm unless you mess with her kids, then watch out! She also needs her downtime to truly serve those around her so don’t be offended if she hasn’t returned your call for a few days.
In the last name Alba, she seems to always sign like we’re taught in school, the lower-case A but bigger. This is indicative of a person who ultimately serves others. Jessica puts others first so often it doesn’t even dawn on her to put herself first, there is not a selfish bone in her body. She’s a giver, through and through. (A trait she shares with David Bowie.) A couple of the signatures I looked at, it was clear Jessica doesn’t believe how amazing she really is, her self-esteem is there but in a ‘I’m only doing my job’ kind of way. The A is the dolphin. Chatty and intelligent, with a love for people, these traits are all seen in her writing.
Optimistic and flexible, she is one to go-with-the-flow. Her work drive is old fashion and she wouldn’t dream of cheating anyone. A day’s work for a day’s pay, could be her work motto. She’ll give 100% of herself within her career and family obligations. Generous to a fault, she believes she can make a difference. I think she’s right.
Happy birthday, Jessica Alba! Cheers to many more!
Quotes from Jessica Alba
Everybody is beautiful, and there are so many different types of beauty and ideas of beauty – it really comes down to confidence.
My theory is that if you look confident you can pull off anything – even if you have no clue what you’re doing.
