Jessica Alba in Elle: 'I know I haven't been swimming in the deep end'

jessica-alba-elle-dec2010.jpg Jessica Alba is tickled pink by comedy and cites some of her favorite comedians in the latest issue of Elle magazine, on newsstands on Nov. 17.

"When I was a kid, I watched Lucille Ball every day," she reveals in the December issue. "I watched Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Peter Sellers."

For the " Little Fockers" actress, comedy is a way to open up.

"I'm shy. I don't like being the center of attention," she admits. "But when I do comedy, I lose all inhibition and introspection. I no longer care."
