Jessica Alba arrives at the Chanel show as part of the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 at Grand Palais on July 6, 2010 in Paris, France. She looks absolutely stunning.
Also in the latest interview, the Machete star said she stopped counting how many pounds she had put on at one point, because it was making her so upset. But she bounced back – and has now learned to love the simple things in life. Alba, 29, told Genlux Magazine: “[I gained] over 50 pounds.”Actually, over 55 pounds. I stopped counting at eight months because I got too depressed.”The Fantastic Four actress, who married movie producer Cash Warren in May 2008, gave birth to daughter Honor Marie Warren on 7 June 2008.And she said she had learned “so much” in the two years since.
She told the US fashion magazine: “I’ve learned so much!”Like, really, truly living in the moment and enjoying each day and really taking in simple things… “To spend time with people you love – no matter what it is you’re doing – whether I’m finger-painting with my daughter at home or going to the grocery store.”She added: “Before, I would just go through the motions.”I was always seeking, and it was always about work.”It was always about: ‘I’ll be happy when this happens or when that happens’. It was about setting goals and not being content with the here and now.”I was always striving for something else.”
