Jessica Alba is admitting that she once had trouble embracing her sexuality.
The actress who is currently pregnant with her second child with husband Cash Warren admits it wasn’t until she gave birth that she began to understand the power of being a woman.
She was only comfortable flaunting her body when a film role required her to do so.
Alba tells Allure magazine, “I didn’t necessarily see it (her sexuality) as a positive thing. I was afraid of it. So that is why I only really ever explored it when I was working…
“I was quite shy with it. It wasn’t something I embraced until I had a 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.”
