Jessica Alba is reportedly appalled by recent news of a young Chinese woman who is preparing to undergo radical plastic surgery in a bid to look like the Mexicana actress.

The 21-year-old woman, who says her name is Xiaoqing, will subject herself to multiple surgeries to transform herself into Alba's doppelganger. So what made her want to take on this crazy pursuit? Her ex-boyfriend of course! Apparently, Xiaoqing's ex is a huge fan of Jessica Alba and used to plaster her images all over the walls of their home. They dated for a year and a half but broke up because Xiaoqing says his obsession with the Fantastic Four actress got out of hand. But she now regrets her decision and is willing to do almost anything to win him back. "My friends kept consoling me, but it did not work, so they suggested I do plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba," she told Reuters.

Luckily for Xiaoqing, she won't have to go broke in pursuit of her goals, doctors at the Shanghai Time Plastic Surgery Hospital offered to take her surgery on pro bono in exchange for publicity and an opportunity to demonstrate their skills.

When Jessica Alba found out about the young woman, she was disappointed, telling press, "I think you should never have to change yourself like that. If somebody loves you, they'll love you no matter what."
