Jessica Alba On Her 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' Action Figure: 'It's A Little Inappropriate' For Kids

A toy company made an action figure in the likeness of the character Nancy Callahan from "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," and Jessica Alba, who plays the role, finds it a "little inappropriate" for children.

The 33-year-old actress, who reprises her exotic dancer role in the sequel to the 2005 neo-noir thriller anthology film "Sin City," appeared Tuesday, Aug. 19, in the TBS late-night talk show "Conan," and host Conan O'Brien could not resist asking Alba about the action figure dressed in one of Nancy's stripper outfits.

"There is a Nancy Callahan action figure out there that they manufactured, and it is quite sexy," said the 51-year-old host-comedian.

"When I think action figures, I think it's for the kids," he added incredulously. "No kid is supposed to have that action figure."

"It's a little inappropriate," Jessica replied. "I think this is an adult action figure."

The Golden-Globe nominated-actress then revealed that her likeness has been committed to at least four action figures so far. The first one was for the biopunk/cyberpunk sci-fi television series "Dark Angel" that aired on Fox from 2000 to 2002. The second was for Tim Story's "Fantastic Four" film series, and the last two were for the "Sin City" franchise.

When asked if she actually collect them, Alba replied, "I have them in storage. It's weird to have them around the house."

O'Brien agreed to her, saying "It could look like you're insane. If you like, 'I'm here, but there's four of me here.' It could look a little crazy."

"But if I had four action figures, I have them all in display," the funnyman added. "I'd make one the hood ornament on my car."

In the first "Sin City" flick, Nancy, who works as an exotic dancer at Kadie's Bar - a popular hangout frequented by several key characters - was rescued from Roark Junior (Nick Stahl) by John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), and becomes a target of the corrupt Roark family, according to The Improper.

In the sequel, on the other hand, Nancy is driven to madness following Hartigan's suicide. She talks to him through her hallucinations and is determined to seek revenge from Senator Roark (Powers Boothe). She teams with pal Marv (Mickey Rourke) to hunt him down.

Alba recently opened up how much she has changed nine years since the first movie.

"I feel much more grounded, much more comfortable, much more saucy," she said in an interview with British GQ last month. "Then I was a girl, I was timid, I was afraid, I was so insecure and now I'm a woman and it's different... I'm more uninhibited."

"I certainly feel that I've evolved as a person and an actress," Alba told New York Daily News. "I have [more] fearlessness as a performer after I had kids than I did prior to having kids."

"Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" opens in theaters Friday, Aug 22.
