Jessica Alba is fighting back against people who criticize her for not being true to her roots. The pregnant star, who is on the cover of the new Latina magazine, is particularly pissed at blogger Perez Hilton, I would imagine, for constantly referring to her as Jessica "Don't Call Me Latina" Alba. The actress admits to never being taught Spanish as a child even though her father is a second-generation Mexican-American, but she is sick of getting picked on!
"No one gives Cameron Diaz a hard time for not speaking Spanish," Jessica pouts to the mag. "Her dad's Cuban, and I was telling her I feel so bad because everyone is so nasty to me for not speaking Spanish. She's like, 'I don't speak Spanish! I barely speak English!'"
Aww, man. Cam took the words right out of my mouth!
Back to Jess, she says she was turned down for a role in a Spike Lee movie because she didn't speak the Spanish, but then the role went to Rosario Dawson who doesn't know her asno from her codo either. 'We're going to hire a Latin girl who can speak Spanish,'" Spike told Jessica, "And then he hired Rosario. What's so funny is that I've worked with Rosario and she's like, I don't speak Spanish.' I was like, 'You don't?' And she was like, 'No!'"
You know what? Waahh, waaah, waah. It must be so hard being you, Jess.
