Jessica Alba Confuses Sweden With Switzerland

January 21st, 2009 // 21 Comments

It’s a blessing Jessica Alba made a career out of wearing bathing suits and spandex in terrible movies, because homegirl would’ve made a horrible and embarrassing journalist.

(Although her bank account probably isn’t crying any tears she chose “acting”)

At some Inaugural party in D.C., (where thankfully Alba knew it was Obama she was supporting) she tried to get all Snarky McSnark on a journalist who just wanted a low-maintenance sound bite from the actress. Check out the video on TMZ.com here.

Instead she cut him off immediately and said: “Can I ask you a question? This is for my blog.” and whipped out her phone and started taping. (Jessica Alba has a blog? HA!)
 
“What do you think is Barack’s greatest characteristic going into office?” she said.

When the shaken journalist said it was probably best he didn’t answer — seeing as he’s on the clock and all — Alba tried to make a funny and said:

“Be neutral! Be Sweden about it!”

The journalist was a gentleman and too polite to bother correcting her, but we’re not. It’s Switzerland, Jessica. Switzerland

In her defense, both countries do start with the letter “S” and they’re both in Europe. At least she didn’t say Sudan. Or Singapore.

UPDATE: You commenters are always so gracious. We want to thank you for alerting us to the error in our ways. Sweden was in fact neutral.  Let’s hope we make it on Jessica Alba’s blog!

  1. John

    Sweden is neutral as well

  2. kfar

    you´re a moron.
    sweden was neutral in the 2nd world war.

  3. Rory

    In her defense, both countries do start with the letter “S” and they’re both in Europe. And they’re both neutral. And have been neutral for almost 200 years.

    You know, in her defense and all.

  4. Drew B

    Wow, the arrogance and stupidity coming out of that girl is major.

  5. Drew B

    Wow, the arrogance and stupidity coming out of that girl is major. She actually questions the journalistic integrity of the man with the mic (no, he shouldn’t answer her stupid question otherwise the people [us] will not value and trust his journalism if we all know he leans one way or the other, politically speaking). Ugh, you bore me child . . . go wear a bikini somewhere and shut up, at least until you get some sense.

  6. say what?

    Sweden is neutral?

    you better tell that to the troops they have over in Afghanistan and Iraq.

  7. ll

    Yeah, Drew B, I already know I should worry and question the integrity of any journalist who has the hard assignment … of asking movie stars for soundbites. That’s like saying the morons who write this blog and don’t know Sweden was neutral in WWII (dumber than Jessica Alba, apparently!) are journalists, too. COME ON. Say: I hate Jessica Alba. And that sums up what you wanted to say. If she said the sky was blue you’d be posting about how stupid she was anyway.

    it’s not her fault. she was getting her crotch manicured at the time, and it’s normal to confuse sweden, switlestick and all other places that begin with an “s” while every inch of your crotch is being tended to – i hope they didn’t neglect her tummy hairline! ya now those brownies get the extra gene!

  9. Blue Veleveeta

    She may be a silly movie star but she seemed smarter than the douchebag “journalist” asking the questions…pretty easy to deduce who he works for…

  10. Amy

    Sweden may be neutral, but traditionally when using this kind of analogy Switzerland, not Sweden, is the country mentioned. She is indeed a moron.

  11. Rex

    Jessica Alba is a mental midget. She’s an embarrassment.

    Sweden is hardly neutral. The only war they were ever neutral in was WWII.

  12. Romans

    Clearly she meant Switzerland, but is such a fart head that she got confused.

  13. Maggie

    She is so dumb. The other idiots can defend her and say Sweden is neutral, blah, blah blah. We all, well the educated people of this world know she was too in fact trying to using the “be neutral Switzerland…” The closest Alba has ever come to an education was when she played a knocked up unwed girl on 90210. Wait, isn’t that what she is now or did that guy finally marry his meal ticket? Must have hurt her family to give her up as their own meal ticket, or is she supporting them all? Doesn’t she wonder why all her films have her in a leotard or a bikini? Is it becasue of her fine acting skills? That poor baby of hers is smarter than she is but has no chance because she is an idiot.

    She is sooo right!!!!!
    Sweden has been neutral for over 200 years and is still today.
    A country that is neutral do have some military and like Sweden building fighter aircrafts that they even sell to other countries.
    How do I know????? I’m swedish!!!

  16. Eric

    Man, the quality of the U.S. educational system never ceases to amaze me.

    Google “neutral sweden” and “neutral switzerland”. See what you’ll find. About 20% more results for “neutral switzerland”, but it’s obvious that they are both well known for being neutral. Neither country has soldiers in Iraq. Both countries have soldiers under UN command in Afghanistan.

    Bring back corporal punishment in U.S. schools I tell you. That ought to keep the students from sniffing glue during history classes.

  19. The Viking

    uh… wtf? What’s so funny? I’m swedish and if it’s about the neutrality… then I guess the ones who posted this video on all those websites aren’t so unlike Jessica as they think… oh wait… that means Jessica is right… Anyway Sweden has been neutral since the beginning of the 19th century.

  20. george

    Sweden was netural in both WW1 and WW2

  21. harhar

    It’s a good thing SocialiteLife.com is about as journalistic as an acting career, otherwise this would be embarrassing.
