Jessica Alba Covers 'Health', Talks Cellulite on Thighs

Jessica Alba Covers 'Health', Talks Cellulite on Thighs

Jessica Alba steps out in style to run some errands on Tuesday (September 24) in Brentwood, Calif.

The 32-year-old actress recently took the cover of Health magazine’s October 2013 issue – here’s what she had to share:

On reflecting back on her younger body: “I was a lot more critical of my body when it was probably pretty awesome. It’s like, why did I not ever wear jean shorts? That’s so crazy. I was so skinny! I didn’t have any cellulite…what was I thinking?! I was more willing to wear short skirts after I had my kids. I never wore them before. Ever. I was so self-conscious.”

On wearing a corset after giving birth: “Your muscles are completely stretched. It gets the muscle memory going quicker. It’s just to get your body back. Because everything is everywhere!”

On her diet: “To me, it’s knowing that if you eat unprocessed fresh food — it doesn’t all have to be organic, but try to have the least amount of GMOs [genetically modified organisms] and pesticides — you have energy, aren’t starving and don’t have to count calories. When I’m ‘dieting,’ I’m not eating as many snacks — because I love snacks. Popchips, Pirate’s Booty – or I could eat a pound of fruit. So I cut down on snacking when I’m trying to be healthy.”

    Tired of this woman taking about her physical flaws, which no one can see. She has a better body than 99% of women. A body women want and men lust after. She has no cellulite or stretch mark as she claimed.

    There have been numerous close up shots of her on the beach and never once has there been a stretch mark or cellulite seen.

    Enough is enough.



  • selena cyrus

    Die Antwoord..said..their daughter

  • Dee

    She’s still relevant though….?

  • Shane

    Forget Gwyneth Paltrow. I want to know how Jessica Alba does it. She has two kids and has an amazing body. She’s thin but has curves, doesn’t look anorexic and doesn’t seem to overexercise.

  • jess

    how is she still relevant……. its annoying how somebody can have so much “staying power” just cause of looks alone and no talent. beautiful girl but never a good actress IMO

  • yep


  • Eww

    Thats life Jess. Its all cellulite and stretch marks after 23. Throw in a couple pregnancies and you better cover up your thighs. Unless you have the luxury of photoshop.

  • Courtney

    she’s a halfwit wearing a corset after giving birth is cruel and inhumane to the mothers body let things go back into place slowly your not that great of an actress to begin with. Joanne Woodward never sunk that low after any of her three daughters were born she took her time and scaled back her career to devote the time each child needed. granted this girl can’t be compared to that

  • danielle

    @Shane: I know… its all about eating healthy and genetics… bummer

  • Veep

    She’s absolute perfection physically. Her lifestyle tips are way better than Goop’s!

  • WTF?

    Shut up Alba SHuuuuuuut uupp! You have a trainer, a chef, nannies, shali I go on. . . Try losing weight after losing a parent, moving countries, starting school full time and working. Not to mention YOU WHERE THIN TO BEGIN WITH! Earth to Jessica!

  • shay

    agree with sayer and wtf?! Enough seriously!
    and she’s still and ‘actress’?

  • Lulu

    AMEN!! Trying losing weight WORKING 8.5 hours a day/5 days a week on a limited budget. THEN i’ll read your interviews in magazines. What a complete IDIOT.

  • b

    She didn’t wear short shorts before babies. Dude, really? Have you seen what you wore or looked like in movies before your children? Please stop talking. You’ve had body issues and you still seem to have them because you cannot.stop.talking about your damn body.

  • Mine

    She has big legs.

  • alejandra

    she does not have big legs she is literally PERFECTION

    I think she constantly talks about how she has so many ‘flaws” cause she probably wants to seem more normal and humble than she really is.

    SHE knows she is one of the most beautiful woman in hollywood and has an amazing body! I mean she really is and does.

  • Jeannie


    LOL you only think that b/c she has a great publicist. They keep her relevant in the media. Notice how she didn’t get this much coverage before her kids? She (and her PR people) know that the world is watching her AND her kids (which is why she started Honest), so their constantly papping her and her kids out. She also gets MAD bucks for her & her kids pics bein taken.
    Look around you…….if the girl you saw at the mall who was decently attractive was worth 45 million dollars, she too would look like Alba.
