Jessica Alba sorry for OK City shark stunt



Tbd-jessicaalba061109 You could say the shark jumped Jessica Alba, who apologized for covering up half of Oklahoma City with posters of a great white shark to call attention to the decline of the big fish, the New York Daily News says. And here we thought it was a marketing campaign for an Into the Blue sequel.

"I got involved in something I should have had no part of," Alba said in a statement. She's in town to shoot The Killer Inside Me. "I realize that I should have used better judgment and I regret not thinking things through before I made a spontaneous and ill-advised decision to let myself get involved with the people behind this campaign."

Police say Alba used heavy duty glue to secure the 3-by-2-foot posters on a bridge, electrical boxes and a United Way billboard, prompting an investigation under vandalism laws. The proof was posted on conservation site White Mike, which has several photos of Alba committing the deed (see them here, since White Mike took them down). Oops.
