Jessica Alba Covers 'Self' September 2012

Jessica Alba Covers 'Self' September 2012

Jessica Alba is fun and flirty on the cover of Self magazine’s September 2012 issue, celebrating the 5th Annual Women Doing Good Awards.

Here is what the 31-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her workout routine: “Bubble butts, like my dad and I have, run in my family! To tone up, I do jump lunges and squat jumps. They make me want to vomit, but they’re the best for getting my legs in shape.”

On why she started The Honest Company
: “I found my daughter Honor sitting in her crib, eating these tiny beads from the inside of her diaper. They were all over her face. It was a moment of terror.”

On going from Hollywood to the business world: “It’s awesome—it really does feel like this is my third baby. It’s a deep passion of mine and I spend all my time at the office. I think it’s a nice balance to Hollywood because it’s so free and it’s so creative and so much of what you do is in someone else’s hands, essentially and this is something that I could actually control and I could see something from the beginning to the end and there’s something really wonderful and fulfilling about that. Especially when it was so hard to get it going for so long. For it to actually be here and exist is pretty cool.”

FYI: Jess is wearing Jewels By Dunn bracelets.

    love her

  • PuertoRicanGurl

    She only claims to be American and has always dissed the Mexican part of her heritage only bringing it up after Perez waged a race war against her.

  • Jordy

    @PuertoRicanGurl: I learned in a cultural sociology course that you are only a part of a culture if you choose to be… you do not have an obligation or duty to be a part of a culture simply based on your ancestors. You need to want to be a part of it. I think it’s ridiculous that people ridicule her for not engaging in a culture she may not identify with other than genetic makeup that ties her to it. I am of German, Italian, and Welsh heritage, I don’t really identify with any of them but I would rather explore my Welsh part, it doesn’t make you a bad person for not delving into your other parts. Heritage is your choice to follow.

    @PuertoRicanGurl: why? did she grow up in mexico? um she IS American. her culture is AMERICAN. get a clue.
    her body is bangin btw.
    she looks awesome.

  • viv

    i want to see what the front looks like.
    all the outfits are cute.
    good photoshoot.

  • cara

    @Jordy: um what that’s like telling cameron diaz – hey cameron, how come u never bring up you’re cuban heritage? but no one bothers her about it because she doesn’t “look” cuban but jessica alba looks mexican?
    theyre the same amount of either – half.
    but cameron is American.
    and so is Jessica.

  • yallah

    actually cameron talks about how she’s cuban and she gets asked about it all the time.
    she rocks it!

  • dod

    why?JJ I’m just a crazy troll

  • Steve

    Cameron is only part Cuban her dad was Castilian and that practically means white and her mom is white. People only ask that of cameron because of her last name she has often admitted that she knows nothing about the Cuban culture doesn’t speak Spanish and prefers to call herself just an American girl which she is.

  • dod

    to cum

  • Yo Chola

    She claims that while growing up all of the Mexican girls at her school were fat, ugly, bow legged hairy lipped and Neandethal looking and they were all jealous of her because she is half white and had blond hair while growing up that’s why she never liked to associate with them because they gave her such a hard time as a child. Now all of the Mexicans want to claim her but I don’t she is a snob and she can’t act her way out of a paperbag.

  • Anna

    Perez is a ridiculous person; no one takes him seriously.

    Guess what? Not everyone is raised speaking the native tongue of their ancestors.

    I’m Italian and Spanish but I was born in the U.S. and so were my parents and grandparents. I was raised speaking English. I’m an American.

  • CallieO

    She looks good here.

  • kathryn

    @PuertoRicanGurl: I get what the other people are saying, but I still think she should acknowledge her mexican heritage. I’m not saying she has to shove it down everyone’s throats that she’s mexican, but I think there should be more representation for hispanic people in hollywood. Idk, about the rest of you but to me she comes off as a self loathing hispanic.

  • chris

    she is one of the most pretentious actresses in hollywood….does anyone remember the last time she actually GOT WORK? those in the industry are very much aware of the fact that she ONLY brings up her mexican heritage BECAUSE that’s the only thing left of her worth talking about….oh look a sexy hispanic actress, you take the hispanic away, she wouldn’t even make that ‘actress’ list.

  • Rachelle

    WHAT BUBBLE BUTT? She has a normal butt its not big nor fat to call a bubble butt she needs to look in the mirror again. And I am sorry she looks straight up mexican she has a wide nose and fat lips and tan skin plus is very average looking I don’t get the fascination with this woman she shouldn’t be ashamed she is HALF mexican she is from like Pomona, CA too filled with Mexicans and kinda ghetto. She has become this so called “actress” that puts herself on this high pedestal when she hasn’t been in ONE decent movie. Like others said all she has is her “latin” last name. Sad but true not to sound nasty.


    her and angelina jolie cannot act. they just stand there and expect people to find them pretty.

  • PuertoRicanGurl

    i hope she dies.
