Jessica Alba - "Marie Claire" March 2008

Jessica Alba -

Jessica Alba dishes on sex, power and pregnancy in the March 2008 issue of Marie Claire.

The mom-to-be also talks a bit about working with Step Up Women’s Network, a national women’s and girl’s empowerment organization to help young females in the inner city make their way to success.

Interview snippets below!

On being a role model: “When I was a little girl, I always wanted someone to look up to. I think identity was a big deal to me because I didn’t fit in with one certain race. I always wanted someone who looked like me, who was a positive role model.”

On being bullied at school: “I had a lot of haters. They’d unzip my backpack so my books would fall out. They’d tie my shoes together. They’d ‘accidentally’ spill lunches on me.”

On Hollywood’s perception of women: “There’s a lot of pressure on women to fulfill certain fantasies. They expect you to be a little bit of a tart, to flirt with all the men. A lot of women do it. But I’m not doing that. I talk with these guys about their wives and kids right away. When they say inappropriate things, I let them, because boys will be boys, but I’m not looking to participate in their conversations.”

Jessica, 26, and fiance Cash Warren, 28, are expecting their first child together in late spring, early summer.

The March 2008 issue of Marie Claire hits newsstands nationwide on Tuesday, Feb. 12th.

    Good for Jessica! Glad she puts the ‘boys’ in their place. I also like her organization. Giving back is something I admire in a person. I may not like the actor, or their acting, but when it comes to giving back to the community, they’re OK in my book.

    She never sounds like anything but a self-absorbed whiner who ******* about where she came from instead of letting it go.

    she needs to shut her piehole and just sit there looking pretty. every time she speaks tries to come across as humble, misunderstood, victimized, and “unintentional” sex-symbol and sooooo insecure…when she’s none of those things by a LONG SHOT.

    she also makes comments that make no sense… she has stated that she only wants to speak spanish to her child for the first 2-3 years of it’s life…when she can’t even speak spanish herself. i mean wtf is she even talking about???? arggggg

    the asinine things she says in interviews make her come across as very UNLIKABLE. when people don’t like you they don’t go to see your movies.

    for example, if you were in a movie…i wouldn’t go see it.

    #12 and #14

    Women are just as capable as men of misogyny. It just makes it sadder.

    bullshit detector,
    and you are waaaaay too uptight. you shouldn’t take everything so seriously. apparently, you have had a “rough” life which has made you hostile and defensive. only a “victim” would let something like a supposedly “mysogynistic” comment get them down.
    on that note…..
    here’s some misogyny for you…..
    how about you shave your overgrown leg hair and arm pits, feed your cats, put on your prettiest moomoo and go down to the local bar and see if you can get/pay a man to give you a charity f*ck….it might loosen you up and make you less uptight and b*tchy.
    just a suggestion, dearheart!

    the only reason she was bullied, if it’s even true, is because she’s a *****

    Wow, no overreacting going on on THIS blog. Holy crap.

    I am a lesbian, so I won’t be following your suggestion. You *really* don’t like women very much, do you?

    bejeebus Says:

    tell me about it….we have a femi-nazi who’s attempting to put me in my place but, at the same time, is saying that women should not be put anyplace…….very confusing. LOL

    apparently, me saying that someone should “shut their piehole and look pretty” is a women’s movement trigger…..
    i guess that means that i have to stop saying it to my husband!!!!!

    bullshit detector,
    lovely…like i said, you’re obviously have a HUGE chip on your shoulder. get over it. embrace yourself. i love women and i enjoy being a woman..that’s why i am able to sit back and not take it all so d@mn seriously. take a lesson and chill the f*ck out.

    I really don’t get her sometimes. I could have sworn she indicated that her father raised her not to embrace her Mexican heritage but to embrace her “American” heritage. I thought she also conveyed a sense that she did not want to be labeled as a Latina. Yet as of now she’s trying to embrace Hispanic qualities by participating in Latino/a oriented events/magazines and teaching her future child Spanish. I really have no idea what’s going on in her head. However, one thing comes to mind. Since she is “mixed” she may have been “too white” for one group or “too Latina” for another. A lot of mixed people go through that and feel like they don’t fit in with either group. It kind of sucks.

    I do appreciate her standing up for herself by not letting men think that they can talk to or treat her in any distasteful manner.

    #6, for someone who picks so many bad films, she’s not smart at all!

    I have to go and attend to my “overgrown leg hair and arm pits” (oh, the irony of classic misogynist responses), but please do carry on. This is fun. Like shooting ducks in a barrel.

    bejeebus Says:

    bullshit detector,
    i think you have an incredibly skewed sense of reality……but that’s probably for the best eh? “fish in a barrel”…..are you talking about your underpants? b/c that’s not a very palatable come on line.
    thanks for the offer but, if it’s all the same to you, i’d rather not continue to carry a conversation (by the way, you aren’t doing a very good job holding your end of it up) with such an unamusing bitter “human being” (was that PC enough for you? LOL).
    have a nice life and say “hi” to Rosie for me!
