Jessica Alba revealed that she stopped eating when she became an actress so she “wouldn’t get so much attention.”
She was encouraged by her family not to wear Pepe Jean’s because of her “voluptuous” body and her “booty.”
Alba said at Goop’s health summit, “I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating a lot when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get as much attention.”
The actress went on to say she felt “preyed upon” by men when she was starting out in the industry, and that “Nothing about being successful in this business is easy … You can’t be bitter.”
Alba married Cash Warren in 2008 and they have three children together.
