Jessica Alba Elle Magazine March 2009
Inside the magazine Jessica talks a lot about how she lost the baby weight.
You don’t think being beautiful and thin has helped you?
You have to be the best of whatever you are, but successful, cool actresses come in all shapes and sizes.
Still, you snapped back into shape pretty fast after giving birth.
I did it for the Campari job. [The workouts] were horrible. I cried. And I haven’t worked out since.
Did you have to do anything besides exercise?
I wore a girdle. Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist—any kind of band or girdle works. She was like, “I slept in it.” I didn’t recover as fast as she did. I don’t have a sixpack—that’s just not my body at all.
