Just because Jessica Alba isn't the most smiley, happy-go-lucky starlet in Hollywood that doesn't mean she's not a load of fun.
Teri Polo, one of Alba's costars in the upcoming Little Fockers, insists Ms. Alba loves a good laugh…
"She loves to be funny," Polo told us at last night's BAFTA/LA Britannia Awards, co-hosted by Beefeater 24 gin. "I also think she's a very shy person who perhaps people perceive as a certain way…We get along just great."
So why does she get a rap for being a sourpuss? Polo explained...
"I think some people have a certain preconception and are intimidated and don't approach them properly," Polo said. "So then why would that person come out of their shell? You just kind of have to prod them along and then they just come right out."
And Alba's mommy side also brings out the fun.
"Her little baby Honor has come to set and run around," Polo said. "And my baby girl who's almost two comes to set and runs around…Lots of gals, which is nice."
Another Fockers star, Robert De Niro, wasn't as chatty. But he's De Niro, and it's not often we get to talk to the legend...
"The kids are great," he said of the flick. "We're still just at the beginning. It's only been a few weeks. But it's great."
