Actress Jessica Alba spent half a year learning to play the violin so she would be convincing as a blind soloist in upcoming horror movie The Eye. The 26-year-old had no classical music knowledge before she signed up to star in the remake, and struggled to learn how to play the violin like a master. She says, "I don't know much, or anything really, about classical music - unfortunately - and I had to learn in six months to play Beethoven and Mozart. "It was so hard, I practiced for hours."
