Jessica Alba is Jason Statham's fan

London: Actress Jessica Alba agreed to star in "Mechanic: Resurrection" because she and her husband are big fans of actor Jason Statham.

Alba feels Statham is the best when it comes to watching action movies, reports

"My husband and I are both fans of Jason Statham. I love action movies and think he's one of the best - if not the best - action stars right now. I mean, what Jason can do with his body is insane. He's better than some stunt people that I've worked with," Alba told HELLO! Magazine.

"I thought it would just be fun, frankly, and such a different thing to my day-to-day," she added.
