Jessica Alba is So Much More Than a 'Sex Symbol'

Jessica Alba is So Much More Than a 'Sex Symbol'

Jessica Alba looks gorgeous while posing outdoors for the new July 2016 cover of InStyle magazine.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress/businesswoman had to share with the mag:

On her childhood: “I was definitely born different… I loved to challenge authority. I was a very difficult child to parent. I was hyper. I didn’t sleep a lot. And being sick so often and being in and out of the hospital so much made it hard to form relationships.”

On her status as a lad-mag lust object: “My sexuality made me very uncomfortable. I remember my first Maxim shoot, the were telling me to pose a certain way, and I was like, ‘Agh! I’m 19. I’m a virgin. I don’t even know how to do that.’ It was so awkward.”

On being a sex symbol at age 25: “I sort of went through a life crisis. I was like, ‘This isn’t what I set out to be. I’m so much more than this, but I don’t know how not to be a sex symbol.’”
