Between all of the cleanses, juice fasts and intense workouts, we're not really shocked by what celebrities do to keep trim.
But Jessica Alba has come up with a different - and old-school - method.
Alba, 31, has two kids with her husband Cash Warren: there's four-year-old Honor, and 1-year-old Haven. In order to get back in shape after having her girls, Alba reached for a girdle ... two of them.
“It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” she told Net-A-Porter's magazine. “I wore a double corset day and night for three months."
As you can imagine, "it was sweaty," Alba said, but also "worth it.”
If that sounds extreme to you, Alba probably isn't sweating it. As she tells Net-A-Porter, motherhood has made her more fearless, particularly when it comes to her acting.
Working on the "Sin City" sequel, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," "was so opposite to what I do [at home]," Alba said.
"My approach to acting now is so different – I’m fearless because I have nothing to lose," she went on. "Before [children] my identity was wrapped up in every decision – now, I don’t care. It could be a pile of s*** and you could think it was the worst thing you ever saw, but I still had the best experience.”
what a maroon
at least we have a handfull of these women left.
does she still like penguins?
GO GIRL! !!!!!!! you rock whatever it takes and if it makes you feel good thats all that counts
we do not wear those for men its only for big breasted women too wear during the day...
Beautiful girl....but not much else going on there.../meh actress
Hit her 30's with a bang and now has to try to stay relevant with stories of corsets. Just stay hot, we dont care how you do it.
Round 2 tomorrow–all the best jess
It's not uncommon for a woman to wear a corset after birth, but I have never heard of two at once. The purpose of it is to help the uterus return to it's original size without leaving the stomach appearing floppy or as kids would say "old looking". Exercise helps, but its hard to get rid of the pooch, where as the "corset" helps it to regain the firmness and non poochy look.
Uh...huh huh huh...huh huh. huh huh huh huh...she said afterbirth. Huh huh...huh huh huh...
GOT SHE'S BEAUTIFUL
I'm impressed that Alba apparently knows who the father of her children is (and apparently is the SAME guy!!) but she's actually married to the father of her children. How unusual for a "Hollywood" person.
She is such a pretty girl. I'm not getting this double corset thing, though. Does it squeeze the baby weight away, or do you sweat it away? Either way, I think working out would be a healthier way to go. Just sounds kind of painful to me to wear 2 corsets all the time. Or does the old adage work here, no pain, no gain?
Isn't being a "pile of s***" a prerequisite for acting in hollywood???
see u soon.
is fab and a nice girl
