Jessica Alba: Why Are People Obsessed Over My Butt?

Jessica Alba: Why Are People Obsessed Over My Butt?

Jessica Alba is the June 2007 cover girl for InStyle Magazine! The Fantastic Four star reveals she’s a lapsed Catholic and a lapsed born-again Christian but Buddhism feels right for her now. Here are some more highlights from Alba‘s interview:

On her crazy butt-loving fans: “I don’t know why people are obsessed [over my derrière]. Well, it’s not flat, so maybe they’re just not used to seeing an actress who has a figure… I had womanly curves at a young age. Usually kid actors are a few years older than the roles they play. I was two or three years younger.”

On her all work and no play schedule: “You can probably work too much and lose your soul. I love work and find it fulfilling, but I think a balance is good.”

On her nude spa experience: “I went to a spa here, and iti was so traumatic because no one was wearing a suit in the coed Jacuzzi. It was so gross! I’m not sitting with a bunch of people with their business hanging out.”

On always having to move around as a kid: “I went to 11 schools growing up, so I was always the new kid. I was kind of a loner and never hung out with a group. I chose just to do my own thing.”

On learning commitment from her parents: “My parents taught me about unconditional love, because you have your ups and downs, but you stick through it. I learned a lot from that, and I know that kind of love is possible. So I’m not quick to jump into something. My parents made a forever commitment, and I know that’s what I want.”

On her favorite Hollywood icon: “Steve McQueen. He was so brutish–beautiful, strong and unpredictable.”

On her wrist tattoo (the word for lotus in Sanskirt): “For me it signifies the manifestation of spiritual beauty.”

    Don’t like her, she’s not even a good actress………..

  • Anthony

    Not used to seeing actresses with a figure?? There are a TON of actresses out there with more of a figure and talent then she has….Can’t stand her, she’s dull and seems stuck up

  • [eclec-tic]

    people are obsessed with her ass? – Jessica Alba’s ass? huh… what ass? she has the ass of a 14 year old girl, I take that back – 14 year old girls in my hood have fatter assess. she needs to stop it, her ish is far from serious.

    she’s still cute tho.

  • Coco Canada

    She is overrated…very photogenic but adorable. I am not sure about her acting though. Michelle Pffeifer said that most producers could not get past her beauty. I think that Jessica is just talking about how other people portray her. She has an ethnic, exotic look.

  • Ro

    She looks so plain now that she’s Bosworth-skinny and a terrible shade of brunette.

  • kae

    She has curves? Where??? Please….

  • any

    i dont know either… i mean shes skinny and anthony you’re righT

  • kmillz

    who talks about her ass?

  • buttpolice

    I think she was reading about Jessica Biel but was too dumb to know the difference

  • 2985

    She seems to really believe that she has ‘womanly curves’ coz I see her comment about it a lot. I think she needs to take a good look at her latest spread for GQ, for example, and honestly say how such skinny arms and obvious ribs can count as womanly curves! I’m not saying she’s unattractive, not at all, but really, stop saying you have womanly curves! It’s like an insult to those who DO have them, such as Monica Belucci, Aishwarya Rai, Liv Tyler, etc.

  • Hey Now!

    I am just reiterating what everyone has said because she looks like a 12 yr old girl. She USED to have curves in all the right places but not now and not for the past year since she went on the ‘Hollywood Death Diet’ . They keep bringing up her butt business because there is nothing appealing about her. She isn’t that great of an actress. She seems to be bi*tchy to the max! But I guess old publicity is better than no publicity.

  • Julie

    Well she does have a nice ‘derrière’, have you seen pictures of her in a bikini??And she’s a pretty girl.
    But I hate her character, she’s so annoying, and she thinks too highly of herself.

    She’s always complaining about people focussing on her looks and not her so called acting talent (which she has none of, btw), but the thing is, she makes it worse by telling the same winy things in every damned interview, people are bound to look at her appearances!!

    Please, girl, stop complaining and enjoy it … plus, we really don’t wanna hear what you have to say!!

  • IMO

    What?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  • black

    Nobody is obsessed over your stupid butt you damn attentionwhore.

  • remember da truth

    Anthony and Buttpolice have it right — she is so stuck up, she didn’t read that it’s Jessica BIEL’S ass that everyone is talking about.
    She thinks people can’t get past her hotness? Puh-lease! The only people who find her hot are under the age of 22.

    She never did have any curves! She’s not too skinny, that’s not the problem. But she is straight-waisted. She does not curve in from hip to a small waist, like Heidi klum Salma Hayek, etc who really are curvy. She does not have a curve from the small of her back to her butt, like Jessica Biel and Beyonce. So where are the curves? What makes her think she has a curvy ass? Oh, it lifts a little off the thigh — duh, ALL asses do that, except Cameran Diaz who has NO ass!!

    This is a talentless, stuck-up little girl who will go away as soon as her fans get laid for the first time and grow up a bit.

  • Layla

    Come on guys! I don’t care for her either, think she’s highly overrated, but you gotta admit, this is a great layout!

  • Kelly

    She is gorgeous and beautiful..and she DOES have curves

    I think she is great. Alot of you are such hypocrites! Jessica is so skinny and boney but you worship Angelina “skelator” Jolie…the HOMEWRECKING hypocrite!

  • inhirnamy137

    Jessica compared to alot of latinas.. looks SICK and washed out, WHAT BUTT. She isn’t a true talent and should be happy for the attention she is getting, because I doubt She will ever win an Oscar. I wish another Latina was on the cover of this magazine. BIEL, ALBA and JOHANNSEN…are overrated in every dept..looks n talent.

    Kelly… why are you bring up Angelina…in the same post with a limited talented, self-absorbed twit. Also the homewrecking stuff is SOOOO 2 yrs ago. Brad n Angelina are happy SO GET OVER IT!

  • http://YAHOO.COM cutie pie

    JUST JARED YOU KNOW WHAT I JUST COMMENTED ON BLACK GIRLS HAVE NATURALLY BIG BUTTS AND THEY ARE NOT FAKE . IT COMES FROM THE AFRICAN WOMEN GENES. LOOK AT THE AFRICAN WOMEN NO FLAT ASSES.

  • dat_dOod

    Kelly, you’re a complete moron, lol. She has about as much curves as a flag pole.

  • remember da truth

    dat_d0od — you have me laughing! yes, Kelly is a bit slow. Anyone who calls a woman a “homewrecker” has no clue as to how relationships work and is stuck in a stereotypical world where women are supposed to serve their man and men are all dogs with no brains and easily tempted and obviously, there is no love or passion in a marriage — it’s all a contract where the man pays the woman to be a maid and nanny and she gives him sex. She probably also withholds sex as “punishment” if the man doesn’t give her what she wants. Sad, sad women who think you can ‘steal” a man and be a ‘homewrecker” as if the man has no feelings and is just an object to be bartered for.

    No wonder she thinks flat, cardboard, no talent, no personality Alba is beautiful. She has very low standards for people.

  • Eathan

    She looks amazing and she’s a great actress.

    Can’t wait to see Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer!

  • blue

    AHAHHAHAHAHHA I love reading all of your comments…she IS overrated

  • buddy

    guys..maybe you should learn to accept ppl who are pretty…if she is that normal looking she wouldn’t be voted as the top 10 most hottest women?? lol so just rela guys…and she must heard it somewhere about the ass obsessed thing…i don’t think a celebrity will make things up about what ppl think about them…cause after that, everyone will think he/she is a freak….btw buttpolice, jessica alba isn’t illiterate so she knows the difference between herself and other ppl/ btw jessica biel isn’t pretty. i find her ugly…and she does have curves..oh yeah i forgot, you can’t see right. sorry.

  • amizo

  • anon

    Jessica, nobody is obsessed with your fucking flat ass except for guys who haven’t gotten laid in years. She has NO ASS or womanly curves, never really did, now she looks like fucking Nicole Richie. And anybody who think her ass looks good in a bikini — news flash, it’s easy to make it look like you have a butt when you strategically pull the fabric up your crack (which is how she it is everytime I see a pic of her in a bikini). Get over yourself Alba.

  • Amber

    Yall are all haters, you know right? Yeah she’s lost some weight but the majority of ALL Hollywood stars have. Those people are payed to look skinny because that’s what the majority of American people find attractive. She’s a beautiful girl and has a great personality, but she’s not perfect either. So stop hating on her so much because f one comment she has said. In my opinion, some of you people need to find a nice hobby because I’m reading some of these comments and like some of you posted about five or six times. Get over yourselves and stop telling other people to because if you really didn’t care about her and hated her so much, then why are you spending you’re time blogging about how much you hate her? If you really dislike someone, then you wouldn’t give a shit about them and you would not even think about them. Just saying…

    Oh and by the way.

    Half of you women talking about womanly curves would be the first ones to jump on a new diet that promised to make you look like a celebrity in two weeks.

  • Jess

    Who the hell said Heidi Klum was curvy?! Your dumb ass needs to take a new look (we all know who said it). She is not a woman with a curvy figure so don’t put her next to Selma. It’s like saying Victoria Beckam as curves like Beyonce. Stupid, stupid, stupid…

  • http://yahoo.com cutie pie

    amber: you said it right think about what you said if people dont like something then stop talking about it well TELL THAT TO THE RACIST PEOPLE WHO ALWAYS COMMENT ON BLACKS AND CALL US MONKEYS if you dont like us stay the hell away from us simple as that

  • coco

    What’s so strange is she always talks about her “curves”. She has to incorporate “I have a womanly figure, I am not naturally thin like such and such, I have curves, I have imperfections…” but I don’t see anything. Her waist is straight. She doesn’t have a small waist, her waist and hips are same size. And don’t even talk about her butt.

  • mark

    I love love to put my face in her butt.

  • robert

    Jessica Alba has NO ass.

    I have more of an ass and I’m an average weight man. haha.

    I would not hit Jessica from behind, her ass would be the equivalent of some 12 year old boy. sick.

  • bri

    wow hella haters u guys are weak. she has a hella cute butt, she’s beautiful and she’s a great actress which is exactly why she’s rich famous, and prolly has all of ur husbands and boyfriends drewling if u even have any. with that attitude i can understand why u wouldnt. stop hatin on that girl u know ur full of shit anyways

  • bri

    oh and im guessing most of you are probably fat and like to call ur selves thick n curvey which is prolly why ur hatin on her, and obviously u idiots must have some type of obsession over her if ur on a website page thats strictly talkin about jessica alba lol prolly just a bunch of over weight ugly bitches

  • bri

    lol and the guys on here sound like they’re gay so that explains that hahahaha
