Actor Jason Statham has praised his Mechanic: Resurrection co-star Jessica Alba, saying she takes her part in a film very seriously. The 49-year-old star said Alba is a real sweetheart, who likes to have a lot of fun in her life, reported People magazine.
“All of the people that I get to work with smell of sweat and have got broken noses and cauliflower ears. So when she wafts in, it’s quite a delight. She’s a real sweetheart and she’s a really serious actress that takes her part very seriously and she likes to have a lot of fun,” he said.
Talking about the Into the Blue actress, who essays the role of Gina in their recently released crime thriller, Statham said, “She’s responsible for a lot of the key, sort of, strong changes to the character.
“She didn’t want to play the damsel in distress. She wanted to have something with integrity and hats off to her for doing that,” he added.
Actress Jessica Alba has been working hard to get in shape for upcoming film ‘Mechanic: Resurrection’, says her fitness trainer Michael Margolin. The 33-year-old mother of two works out two to four times a week for hour-long sessions that focus on high-intensity intervals, reported People magazine.
She is training under Margolin, co-founder of Krav Maga, the Israeli military’s official system of hand-to-hand combat. “It gets you in good shape and you’re also learning a skill. It’s an effective workout because of the kicking and punching with the resistance of another individual,” Margolin said.
Alba works out with Margolin two to four times a week for hour-long sessions that focus on high-intensity interval training. “We start with a warm-up, and then we do intervals. We do a lot of mitt work where she’s kicking and punching various targets as strong as she can for a period of time, and then she rests for a period of time. We also mix in medicine balls, kettle bells and some light weights,” Margolin added.
