Jessica Alba: ''I didn't know who they were"

Sin City actress Jessica Alba didn't know who One Direction were when she first met them and they made her feel like an ''old fogie."

The 32-year-old star insisted that she had no idea who the group were when she first met them a few years ago.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Alba said: "I didn't know who they were, but a couple of years ago at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards they asked me to take a picture with them.

"They were these cute young boys with fashiony hair cuts. I was like, 'Oh my God, are you guys in a band?' They looked at me like I was an alien!

"I was the only person on the planet who didn't know who they were. I was talking to Snoop Dogg at the time, so we were like old fogies compared to these guys."

Alba, who has daughters Honor, five, and Haven, two, with husband Cash Warren, further explained that she is unsure if she will have any more children, adding: "I don't know, I'm 32 so I don't know if the shop is closed. I'm sure I won't be trying any time soon."
