Jessica Alba Talks Trading Her Sexy Image For Motherhood in US Marie Claire

Jessica Alba covers Marie Claire's June issue in a Versus dress.

Jessica Alba shows some skin in a Versus dress on the cover of US Marie Claire's June issue. The mother of two turned 31 last month and seems to enjoy the juggling act that comes with motherhood and stardom. She recently stepped out in a Michael Kors number at the Met Gala in NYC and mingled with other famous faces at the star-studded White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington DC. Jessica will also appear in a new film, A.C.O.D., set to be released sometime in 2012. In the magazine, Jessica opens up about her early career image, how she has changed since becoming a mum, and her former sexy self. Here's more from Jessica in Marie Claire:

  • On her early career image: "I had a show, Fox’s Dark Angel, that premiered when I was 19. And right away, everyone formed a strong opinion about me because of the way I was marketed. I was supposed to be sexy, this tough action girl. That’s what people expected... I felt like I was being objectified, and it made me uncomfortable. I wanted to be chic and elegant!"
  • On how she has changed since motherhood: "Now that I’m older, I’ve learned how to own it, but I’m still not very overt. There are some women who dress for men. I dress for myself. It took me some time to get here. Being a mum and feeling grown-up have helped. Now if I’m going to wear something short, it has to have a high neck or a little sci-fi toughness to it, an edge."
  • On her former sexy self: "I like to get positive attention. But if I have a choice between someone noticing in a negative way what I’m wearing and going, What was she thinking? or someone not noticing what I’m wearing, I would rather not make a statement at all and just have a good conversation instead."
