Jessica Alba Covers 'Allure' August 2011

Jessica Alba Covers 'Allure' August 2011

Jessica Alba graces the cover of Allure magazine’s August 2011 issue!

Here’s what the 30-year-old expectant actress had to share:

On embracing her body type: “There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable – because it all leads to reproduction. There’s a science behind it all. It’s not just to sell whatever you’re selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie.”

On body after baby: “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 being engaged at 18: “He was my first real boyfriend. My family – you fall in love, you get married. That’s just the way everybody does it. I didn’t know any different.”
