Jessica Alba "lubed up"

InvisibleWoman.jpg

Jessica Alba explains the Vaseline stage of the costume creation process for her forthcoming role as Invisible Woman in the Fantastic Four. Fascinating stuff but, and I admit this is a small quibble given the words "Vaseline" and "Jessica Alba", Marvel should never have changed the character's name from Invisible Girl. Invisible Girl sounded much more chic.

Jessica: It was really strange for me. I was with a bunch of guys, and I was by myself, and it was 8 in the morning. I had this bodysuit on, and they're like, "We're going to put Vaseline all over your body." I'm like, "Oh, okay. Everywhere?" And they're like, "Yeah, everywhere." So, I say, "Okay." Then they got closer and closer to certain areas that only certain people are allowed to go, and they were really lubing it up. So, it was weird. ... They have to lube you up before they put on the casting thing, so it won't stick to you.

Q: What did they need the life cast for?

Jessica: I think they just wanted it so they could build a costume on it. Hmm, I don't even know...

Don't get too excited - the same crew had to grease up Michael Chiklis too. I think I'd still do though, as long as Jessica was last to go.

"Marvel should never have changed the character's name from Invisible Girl." Agreed, in the comics she didn't change it until after giving birth to Franklin - the name change was prompted by the story arc where she became Malice. Now, with Alba starting out as Invisible Woman, I fear we'll never have a sequel with Alba in the leather bra and well-above-the-knee boots favored by the dark Sue Richards.
