Jessica Alba Slammed for Saying She Needs No Script for Her Movie Dialogue


Jessica Alba


Best known for his screenwriting collaborations with director Tim Burton, John August is baffled by Jessica Alba's claims, and has taken to his blog to defend the job of the screenwriter.

Screenwriter John August has written a scathing response to Jessica Alba after she insisted good actors have no need for scripts. The "Sin City" actress has come under fire from the "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" movie writer after telling Elle magazine that Hollywood stars rarely refer to their written dialogue.

She was quoted as saying, "Good actors never use the script unless it's amazing writing. All the good actors I've worked with, they all say whatever they want to say." But August, best known for his screenwriting collaborations with director Tim Burton, is baffled by Alba's claims, and has taken to his blog to defend the job of the screenwriter.

He writes, "I have to believe she was misquoted, or excerpted in some unflattering way... Oh, Jessica. Where to start? Following your logic, you've never been in a movie with both good actors and amazing writing..."

"Screenwriters can be your best friends. We are pushovers for attractive people who pay attention to us. I wrote that bathtub scene in Big Fish because Jessica Lange made brief eye contact with me. So if you're not getting great writing - and honestly, you're not - ask to have lunch with the screenwriter. I've seen you on interviews. You're charming. That charm could work wonders."
