As she should. Jessica Alba does not give a single f**k about anyone’s unsolicited opinions about her body after having three kids.
The Honest Beauty founder shared her sentiments on body image as a mother in an InStyle interview published on Tuesday. Alba is arguable one of the most sexualized stars during her time in Hollywood before she went on to focus on raising her family and her entrepreneurial endeavors.
Speaking to the magazine, the actress didn’t sugarcoat what it was like to be in the public eye.
“Looking back, when I shot my first InStyle cover, I was insecure. I felt like I needed to be someone I wasn’t in order to be accepted,” she recalled of her first InStyle cover back in 2007. “I allowed other people’s ideas of who they thought I should be to define me. Who am I now? I give zero f**ks.”
Alba got candid about her post-baby body after having three kids. She quipped, “I have three children. They’ve exploded my body, and I’m cool with it. [laughs] And I know I’m smart. I don’t care what everybody else thinks. I’m good, girl. I’m good.”
The actress is currently married to husband Cash Warren. The couple has two daughters and one son Honor Marie (11), Haven Garner (7) and Hayes (1).
The September issue of InStyle marks the publication’s 25th anniversary. Along with Albe, fellow cover girls Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Meg Ryan and many more are featured on the cover.
