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.”

  • Courtney

    another talentless snob using their pregnancy for press who cares what she says or does. Magazines like Allure used to be reserved for actual talent but now even they’re scrapping the bottom of the barrell

  • http://ja slig o lambert^________^ cute

  • betsy

    so she became an actress because she wanted to be rich? What a b*tch!

  • John

    everybody is pregnant now. wawoo it must be spring effect!

    Have you seen Carla Bruni belly! Let’s hope the babies look like the mother. the father is a litte monster.ewwwwww.

  • Cammie

    She is always complaining about not being skinny enough, after Honor she had gotten super skinny, She should be focusing being an better actress instead of baby weight.

  • Swara

    @betsy: I agree, she is odd.

  • Courtney

    @Besty that’s typical of most modern day so called stars why should Alba be any different of course there are a few exceptions that are talented like Amy Adams Reese Witherspoon Joely Richardson and Amanda Seyfried granted Richardson’s been in the business on her own for over 20 years and is part of a dynasty that in the Redgrave family right she’s Vanessa’s younger daughter with Tony Richardson

  • Keilee

    I hate that she constantly goes on and on about the broken engagement with Michael weatherly, she goes on and on about how she ‘didnt know what he was doing’ or why on earth were we engaged etc, making it sound like he was forcing her into things or hat she just went along with it like some sort of idiot. none of it is ever her, its always that he did it, he wanted it, he he he he. she didnt have to say yes, she didnt hav to date him. She needs to take some responsibility and shut up about it

  • lololol

    @Courtney: um obviously Allure hired her for her thoughts and opinions. Who ever heard of a question-less and opinion free interview? LOL

  • TheCelebrityCafe

    I like her theory on body image. It’s very true!

  • TheCelebrityCafe

    I like her theory on body image. It’s very true!

  • Jude

  • MangerBouger

    I would say “unless you’re an jessica or gisele”

    Glad I’m not the only one who notices this. She ALWAYS just talks about her body and never about roles except to complain that she was made out to be the sexy chick in a bikini… wonder why?
