Jessica Alba gave quite a revealing interview for the March 2009 issue of Elle magazine. The gorgeous actress talked about giving birth and getting back into shape so soon after. Her shocking secret – a girdle!

“Contractions aren’t that bad. If you’ve ever had bad cramps? That’s what they’re like. But that moment when they put the baby on your chest – that’s deep. It’s a deep experience.

I did it (worked out) for the Campari job. [The workouts] were horrible. I cried. And I haven’t worked out since.
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 six-pack – that’s just not my body at all.?

Good for her for admitting that! Many women, who are not celebrities, would not! Of course being in a fashion magazine, Jessica also talked about her exotic look and fashion style…or lack there of:

“Anyone who’s part of pop culture is going to be sensationalized and spun into something, some one-liner. Also, there aren’t many other stars, besides Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who most people in the world can related to. We look like people of the world – I can kind of mix in with girls in Asia, South America, Europe.

I’ve always loved beautiful clothes, but I’m not very hip to the coolest, newest, most fashionable thing. I’ve always liked mixing casual things with nice, beautiful pieces – mixing masculine and feminine. I just didn’t always know how to do it. As a kid, I bought random, thrift store stuff and hoped that it worked. Sometimes it didn’t.?
