Actress Jessica Alba went blonde for the Fantastic Four movies but who knew if she added the feathered look to it, she could've fit into her birth name of Farrah. 

Alba made a guest appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday night to support her friend George Lopez' new late night show. On the show, Jessica revealed she almost came to be known as Farrah.  Before her birth, her parents settled on the name Farrah after Farrah Fawcett because her mother looked like the feathered-hair angel but upon her birth, her Latino father took one look at her at scratched out her given name of Farrah Dawn Luisa Alba.

"I came out brown. And my dad was like 'she's not allowed to be Farrah.' On my first birth certificate, it's a scratch and he wrote Jessica Marie.

My dad named me."

Jessica went on to joke that if she was named Farrah -- George Lopez probably wouldn't let her be on the show.  Lopez replied, we'd probably be

talking at a RV show right now."
