Jessica Alba Talks About Stripping (Without Actually Stripping) for Sin City 2

As you’ll recall, in the first “Sin City” Jessica Alba played Nancy, a stripper who did a lot of dancing, but no actual stripping. Alba is back to reprise Nancy in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s upcoming “Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For” (along with a whole lotta people and new faces), and to hear her tell it, that whole “playing a stripper who doesn’t actually strip” thing is about to get more difficult. The dancing part, anyway.

The actress tells Vulture:

I had to learn a bunch of dance sequences for it. I do a lot more dancing in this one. It was kind of crazy. It was very, very difficult, and you’ll see why.

Apparently it was so difficult and “crazy” she had to spend three months just prepping for the gig. Honestly, I don’t know why you would need three months to learn how to do a strip dance. There’s a pole. Take your clothes off. Mission accomplished.

“Sin City 2″, also starring Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jamie Chung, Alexa Vega, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, Jaime King, Michael Madsen, and Dennis Haysbert, commits the ultimate sin (again) October 4, 2013.

    But she’s trying to be classy (r.e. she doesn’t feel comfortable getting nude) so she’ll never actually take her top off like Jamie, and Carla did.

      Cowboy chaps and grinding on top of a bar = classy?

        Like I said, she aint comfortable being nekkid. I wasn’t serious about the classy thing. LOL

          Didn’t they CG a nude body double on her in “Machete”? That was weird.
