This gallery features photos of a beautiful, young, Jessica Alba, mainly during her pre-teen and teenager days when she first landed roles in Camp Nowhere and The Secret World of Alex Mack at age 13. Born on April 28, 1981 in Pomona, California, her family moved several times when she was young due to her father’s career with the U.S. Air Force. They finally settled in Claremont, California. Alba was raised in a conservative Catholic family, although she now describes herself as a liberal and a feminist. She suffered multiple illnesses when she was a child, including partially collapsed lungs, several recurring cases of pneumonia, a ruptured appendix, a tonsillar cyst and severe asthma. She graduated from high school at only 16 and attended the Atlantic Theater Company. When she was only 19 years old, she emerged into the spotlight after landing the lead role in James Cameron’s television series Dark Angel.
