Red carpets were made with the likes of Jessica Alba in mind.

The starlet brightened up this year's chilly Sundance Film Festival with her most recent foray into the world of film comedy, "A.C.O.D.," which stars Adam Scott ("Parks and Recreation"). She spoke to HitFix's Dan Fienberg about the film, comedy improvisation, and Sundance itself. 

The film, which deals with the effects that divorce can have on children after they've reached adulthood, allowed Alba and her co-stars to bring personal baggage to their roles. " to talk about ourselves," she quipped. "We love to divulge a lot of private information. We just spill it." She describes "A.C.O.D." as grounded and authentic, while still being a crowd-pleaser. 

When asked if she was able to keep up with the film's stellar grouping of veteran improv masters like Scott, Amy Poehler, Catherine O'Hare and Jane Lynch, Alba responded with a coy "I guess you'll see."

"A.C.O.D." (an acronym for "Adult Children of Divorce") also stars Clark Duke, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ken Howard.

Miramax will release the film later this year.
