Jessica Alba not flattered by woman trying to look like her
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery for Jessica Alba.
The actress said Saturday she's been distressed by Internet reports about a Chinese woman who is having a plastic surgery makeover to look like Alba in hopes of getting her lover back.
''I think you should never have to change yourself like that,'' Alba said.
Hollywood gets life in murder
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Jesse James Hollywood was sentenced to life in prison Friday for orchestrating the kidnap-murder of a teenager, ending a 10-year legal odyssey that included an international manhunt and a movie inspired by the high-profile crime.
Superior Court Judge Brian Hill sentenced Hollywood, 30, to life without the possibility of parole in a Santa Barbara courtroom after denying a defense motion for a new trial.
Hollywood had faced a possible death penalty, but jurors recommended life after finding him guilty in July of first-degree murder. Prosecutors said Hollywood ordered the killing of 15-year-old Nicholas Markowitz in August 2000 over a $1,200 drug debt owed by the victim's half-brother.
The case drew national interest because of the brazen daylight kidnapping of Markowitz from a San Fernando Valley street, the details of his murder and Hollywood's notorious name.
It also captured the attention of producers who made the 2007 movie ''Alpha Dog,'' with Bruce Willis, Justin Timberlake and Emile Hirsch, who played ''Johnny Truelove,'' a character based on Hollywood.
