Here’s what the 30-year-old Spy Kids 4 and new-mama-to-be had to share:
On playing superheroes: “I pretended to be a superhero when I was a kid. I thought, if boys can do it, I can do it, I can do it better!”
On being strong-willed: “There’s a video of me when I’m three, saying ‘This is a woman’s world, and I don’t need a man for nothin’!’”
On her first big audition: “We all went out for it – my mom, my auntie, her four kids, my auntie’s boyfriend, my brother and I all sardined inside our Buick Regal. That’s how we rolled back then.” Once there, she was asked to list any acting experience. “I lied and said I done plays. My mom definitely taught me how to hustle.”

Jessica Alba has starred in action flicks, romantic comedies, and high school dramas. But don’t ever expect to see her in a nude scene (sorry, guys). Check out these exclusive behind-the-scenes shots from her shoot with Michael Thompson. For more of our interview with the actress, pick up the August issue of Allure, on newsstands July 19.
Jessica Alba may be undeniably sexy, but it wasn’t until she actually had a baby of her own, she says, that she understood or appreciated her own sexuality. “I was quite shy with it,” she says. “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.
“There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable—because it all leads to reproduction. There’s a science behind it all. It’s not just to sell whatever you’re selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie.”
Alba has strong feelings about nudity. In all her movies, she says, “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.” Here, she poses in a satin gown by Derek Lam.
After her first pregnancy, Alba (shown here with hairstylist Danilo) worked hard to get back into shape, and she was successful—up to a point. “I can’t ever get down to the weight I was before I had Honor,” she says. “My body’s just different. The jeans just sort of zip up differently, and things hang differently. It’s a miracle what happens, but you definitely are different afterward.” She laughs. “Unless you’re Gisele.”
Alba was recently horrified by a tabloid story in which a young woman had sought to recapture the attention of an ex-boyfriend by being surgically altered to look more like the actress. “That’s just so bizarre, because the physical is so fleeting anyway,” she says. “And when you’re in a relationship, the physical lasts for, maximum, two years. And then you don’t care how attractive you are to that person—if they drive you nuts, they drive you nuts.”
Danilo clipped in long extensions for some shots but removed them for the cover. “I wanted to work with the effortlessness of her bob,” he says. He created spiral curls with a large iron, parted her hair on the side, and loosened the curls with a mixed-bristle brush. For the cover shot, Alba wore a silk-jersey-and-leather dress by Derek Lam.
Makeup artist Pati Dubroff used red and brown shades for “an ethereal, wood-nymph look.” First, Dubroff dusted a reddish-brown-colored shadow on Alba’s lids and swiped a glossy lipstick pencil on top. She then lined the actress’s eyes with a brown pencil and applied a few coats of black mascara. Next, she swept a generous amount of rosy blush onto the apples of the cheeks. As a final step, the makeup artist used her fingers to tap on nude lipstick, which softened Alba’s lip color.
For her Allure cover, Alba was photographed at Franklin Canyon Lake—a picturesque part of a 605-acre park overlooking the Los Angeles skyline. Her daughter, Honor, visited the set and stayed to watch her pose for a few shots.
At the cover shoot, Alba gave pregnant manicurist April Foreman tips on changing diapers. “You’ll want to practice before you have the baby,” she says. The actress joked with photographer Michael Thompson about her own bump—Alba was also pregnant when he shot her for the June 2008 Allure cover.
Alba, on approaching her thirtieth birthday: “According to some people, I peaked in my early 20s,” she says with a chuckle. “I was like, ‘Oh, really? I feel like I’m getting better.'” (Allure)
When the temperatures rise, Jessica Alba likes to keep her cosmetics bag armed with the essentials. Besides, what else would she need to go with that gorgeous mommy-to-be glow?
The 30-year-old actress and Revlon brand ambassador, who is expecting her second child with husband Cash Warren, took some time out of her busy schedule to chat with StyleList about her summer beauty secrets, go-to sunscreen, fragrance of the moment and more.
Five summer makeup must-haves: Tinted moisturizer, concealer, illuminator, mascara and lip gloss.
Tried and true beauty tips: Before there was cream blush, my grandmother would apply lipstick on her lips, cheeks and eyes. I still do that today. And my mother always told me to wash my face every night, wear sunscreen during the day and drink plenty of water. It’s simple but I like to think that it’s work for me.
How she protects herself from harmful sun rays: I like sunscreen that’s not too heavy so I use my daughter’s California Baby.
Warm-weather hue she can’t get enough of: Papaya orange.
Summer fragrance she spritzes on: Honoré des Prés Vamp à NY. It’s by an organic French brand — not too strong with a sweet vanilla scent.
Nail polish colors that dress up her digits: Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish in Jaded and Fire.
Moisturizers she trusts to keep her skin hydrated while traveling: Jurlique and La Mer. (stylelist).
