In the issue, the 33-year-old star of Sin City: A Dame to Kill discuses her phenomenal figure and her own struggles with body image. She admits that, like every woman in the world, she has things she likes and dislikes about her physique.
Alba tells the mag, “I have to enhance what I like about my body and my stomach is good. My legs I’m not as excited about all the time, but I wouldn’t cover up my stomach. That’s what women do: enhance what we’ve got.”
Alba gives some brief tips for how she boosts her own body image. “Wear clothes that are too tight. Bathing suits that are too tight and small T-shirts, and I’m not a fan of studs or tattoo prints on T-shirts or trousers. I like a skinny jean, but I just think tight board shorts are weird.”
Alba also discusses the death of friend Paul Walker, who she co-starred with in the 2005 movie Into The Blue. She says, Walker “had a real childlike innocence and he was game to try anything or do anything.”
“He treated everyone with respect and love,” she describes. “He was never treating anybody differently because of who they were. He was really a guy’s guy. And he loved his daughter so much and talked about her all the time. He never cared about Hollywood. He never cared about the hype.”
