Jessica Alba was such a good girl when she became a teenage star she lied about her sexuality to appear more interesting in interviews.
The actress admits she wasn't prepared to become a sex symbol when director James Cameron cast her as his leading lady in hit TV action drama Dark Angel, and her strict Catholic upbringing left her inexperienced for questions about her personal life.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, "They (reporters) would always ask me provocative questions about my sexuality, my this or that. Sometimes I would lie and say something that wasn't true to make myself seem more interesting than I was.
"I mean, I didn't even know how to walk in heels until I went to the Golden Globes for the first time."
