Jessica Alba appears on the cover of Allure magazine’s August 2011 issue. Inside, she talks about embracing her post-baby body, understanding her sexuality, and her motivation to become an actress.
On embracing her post-baby body: “I can’t ever get down to the weight I was before I had Honor. My body’s just different. The jeans just sort of zip up differently, and things hang differently. It’s a miracle what happens, but you definitely are different afterwards. Unless you’re Gisele.”
On her motivation to become an actress: “I wanted to never, ever, ever have to worry about money ever in my life. Financial security was a huge motivator for me when I was young.”
On understanding her sexuality: “I was quite shy with it. It wasn’t something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life.”
