Mike Myers has dedicated his new movie to his late father.
The 43-year-old actor, who lost his dad Eric to Alzheimer's Disease in 1991, was inspired to make 'The Love Guru' - about a romantic spiritual adviser - after finally coming to terms with his dad's death.
He said: "My father died in 1991 and I've been on an informal spiritual quest ever since. But I am just so happy now that I wanted to make a movie about my happiness."
Mike's co-star Jessica Alba - who is expecting her first child with fiancé Cash Warren - insists Mike's happiness helped the atmosphere on set.
She said: "There was no yelling or anything on set. Mike was just lovely."
Jessica, 26, can't believe how well her life is going, and admits her pregnancy has made her life complete.
She added to US TV show 'Extra': "Everything has just come together so perfectly. It's fantastic."
