Jessica Alba: “I Cried” While Trying to Lose the Baby Weight

It wasn’t easy for Jessica Alba to lose the baby weight.

“[The workouts] were horrible,” Alba — who dropped the weight for her Campari calendar shoot — tells February Elle. “I cried. And I haven’t worked out since.”

Giving birth to daughter Honor last June was less difficult, she says.

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

Being apart from the eight-month old is hard, she admits.

“This is the first time I’ve been away from her. It’s been six days. It sucks; it’s the worst thing ever. But we Skype, so I can see her on video. The worst is when you can see her little chubby hands grab the screen, and I’m not there” she says, wiping away tears. “That’s a new thing – I never cried before. Just being a mother is making me a big, weepy mess.”

Alba also opens up about fashion.

“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,” she says. “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.”

But husband Cash Warren doesn’t care what she looks like.

“Whether I’m dressed as a boy or wearing a gown, he’s pretty cool about it all. He doesn’t want to change me. He’s always like, “Okay, whatever makes you happy.”

Alba credits her fame to her exotic looks.

“There aren’t many other stars, besides Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who most people in the world can relate to,” she explains. “We look like people of the world — I can kind of mix in with girls in Asia, South America, Europe.”
