With more than two decades of experience in the entertainment industry and despite the fact that at some point a large number of her fans came to consider her as a sex symbol, actress Jessica Alba has always refused to perform any kind of nudity in front of the screen.
Enemy of her own beauty
As if that were not enough, at the time she came to consider her visual appeal as a heavy burden that far from opening the doors to find work in filmmaking caused her problems.
She even confessed that at a certain stage of her life she stopped eating so that her curvaceous physique would disappear.
“I stopped eating a lot when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get so much attention,” she declared in 2010, during an interview with the Daily Mail.
That same year, she pointed out that the religious upbringing instilled in her by her parents prevented her from appearing nude in any scene.
“I will never do a nude scene. I can act sexy and wear sexy clothes, but I can’t get naked. I come from a very Catholic family, so it was not considered good to flaunt yourself, with that,” she expressed when questioned by Scarlet magazine.
Great respect for her family
The truth is that in a stage where most people live without covers, some of the 41-year-old actress’ answers are even funny.
“I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs. That’s right. If you look at the movies I’ve done, getting naked would never ‘elevate’ the image,” she mentioned four years later for the Galmour issue.
Now, although Jessica Alba has always said that her fans will not see her naked, during the movie Machete there is a scene where she is seen without any clothes on, but it should be noted that this was achieved through a post-production process where technological advances made the beautiful woman look as God brought her into the world.
“Jessica has been firm in her determination not to appear nude in films since the beginning of her career,” said the actress’ agent.
