Gory make-up alienates Alba on movie set

London: Hollywood star Jessica Alba felt alienated on the sets of new thriller `The Killer Inside Me` as the cast and crew refused to talk to her over the gory make-up.

The `Sin City` star, who plays a woman who is beaten beyond recognition by a psychotic killer, played by Casey Affleck, admitted her co-workers avoided her before she filmed the graphic scene because her make-up was so disturbing, reported Daily Express.

"(The shoot) was a couple of days. I was (emotionally) a complete mess. It was hot, and the latex (make-up) was hot. Nobody would talk to me; it made people around me really uncomfortable," said Alba.

But the 29-year-old actress has defended the violent moment, insisting it reveals her character`s true nature.

"It`s the scene that tells you the most about her. She didn`t hit back, she didn`t fight, she just let him do it.

There`s no hands in the air, no blocking it. It`s a really disturbing movie, a really disturbing character - but it`s supposed to be.

"It`s supposed to be awful... I felt she had a death wish, because she was always egging him on and provoking him.

She finally found a man who was man enough to go through with it," Alba said.
