I made very safe, boring choices as an actor: Jessica Alba

London: Actress Jessica Alba says she could have made more daring decisions in her career.

The 33-year-old `Sin City` star said that she was worried about receiving criticism for her movie roles, and often played it safe as a result, reportedly.

"I don`t know if I was ever typecast, but I just made very safe, boring choices as an actor, and I take full responsibility for that," she said.

"It wasn`t the roles. It was probably the way I translated them. I was afraid to be fearless and bold. I was young, I was afraid of being criticised, and I wanted to appease everyone."

Alba continued by praising the increased number of women appearing in film nowadays. "It was harder when I was starting out. There`s much more diversity now. There`s a wider range of successful actresses and beauty.

"We didn`t have Tina Fey and Amy Poehler starring in movies when I was starting out. Halle Berry wasn`t an Oscar winner, and there was no Jennifer Lopez," Alba said.
