Jessica Alba on Her Sex Appeal: 'I Was Quite Shy'

Undeniably sexy Jessica Alba graces the August issue of Allure magazine, in which she reveals that she didn't appreciate her sexuality until she became a mom. "I was quite shy with it," Alba admits. "It wasn't something I embraced until I had my daughter. I saw how incredible and amazing it is to be a woman and to be able to create a life."


Alba, soon due to give birth to her second child, also talked about never being fully nude in her films. "At least I'm still covered. I'm wearing as much as a bathing suit. It's not like I'm naked. I'm not terribly comfortable with being in a bikini, but covering up my genitals is different than not covering up my genitals, at the end of the day. I do see a difference in that, to put it really frankly."
