Jessica Alba Covers 'Marie Claire' June 2012

Jessica Alba Covers 'Marie Claire' June 2012

Jessica Alba strikes a pose in Versus on the cover of Marie Claire‘s June issue, available on newsstands May 22.

Here’s what the 31-year-old actress had to share:

On being showcased in Maxim-ready looks early in her career: “I had a show [Dark Angel] that premiered when I was 19. And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected…I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable. I wanted to be chic and elegant!”

On how she has grown more assured of herself: “Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt. There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mom and feeling grown-up have helped. Now if I’m going to wear something short, it has to have a high neck or a little sci-fi toughness to it, an edge.”

On her former, sexier self: “I like to get positive attention. But if I have a choice between someone noticing in a negative way what I’m wearing and going, What was she thinking? or someone not noticing what I’m wearing, I would rather not make a statement at all and just have a good conversation instead.”

FYI: For her inside pic, Jessica wore a John Galliano dress with Tom Ford heels.

  • Mimi

    The fact that you have ZERO talent is probably why you allowed yourself to be objectified, so you could earn a living.

    Sorry Jessica, until you stop taking ‘sexy roles’ and participating in ‘sexy photoshoots’ then people will stop objectifying you.

    Don’t see anyone objectifying actual talented actresses like Carey Mulligan.
