Jessica Alba Wishes She'd Worn Jean Shorts More Often

The natural living guru says it took time to love her body

Jessica Alba looks flawless to us, but even she is hyper critical of her body, though she's gotten better as she's aged. The actress and entrepreneur launched the Honest Company, which we think of as the anti-goop group. They sell natural and green products, like organic diapers and bath soaps, and last year, she wrote The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You, Alba's very own guide to living well.

But the 32-year-old star of the upcoming movie "Machete Kills" (yeah, we'll probably skip that) says that coming to body acceptance was still a hard thing. And it was only after she had her two kids, Haven 2, and Honor, 5, that it became easier.

"I was a lot more critical of my body when it was probably pretty awesome. It's like, why did I not ever wear jean shorts? That's so crazy," she said. "I was so skinny! I didn't have any cellulite...what was I thinking?! I was more willing to wear short skirts after I had my kids. I never wore them before. Ever. I was so self-conscious. But I remember I was 28 or 29, at an MTV award thing, and my girlfriend Kelly was like, 'You should wear a short skirt, because you are not going to be this age forever.' Now I'm a lot more confident in my skin -- because who cares? At the end of the day, it's so much time spent on something that really doesn't matter that much." You tell 'em, Jess! [Health]
