Alba became a megastar in the 2000s after she broke through with Dark Angel. She appeared in everything from Sin City to The Love Guru and amassed a huge following. Meanwhile, most people regarded her as one of the world’s most beautiful women but suddenly she disappeared out of nowhere.
This was a significant surprise because she could have done whatever she wanted. But Alba became tired of the constant paparazzi attention and refused to play the game. These days she’s raising her family and focusing on her painting. She still has a massive Instagram fanbase and her artwork is available for sale (via Looper).
