Actress Jessica Alba relied on her faith to get her through the shooting of new shark thriller Into the Blue because she felt sure she was set to become fish food.

The sexy star spent days swimming in shark-infested waters for the film and was spooked when she saw the project's fish wranglers' gashes and bites after their encounters with monsters of the deep.

She says, "These shark wranglers, they have a piece of their side taken out... chunks of their legs.

"I said my Hail Marys every day hoping to God I wouldn't get bitten."
