In an interview obviously conducted before Rebecca Romjin made every new mother in America weep for hours, Jessica Alba talks to Elle about getting back in shape after giving birth to daughter Honor Marie in June:
On snapping back into shape so quickly after giving birth: “I did it for the Campari job. [The workouts] were horrible. I cried. And I haven’t worked out since.”
Her secret to looking slim after giving birth: “I wore a girdle. Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist – any kind of band or girdle works. She was like, “I slept in it.” I didn’t recover as fast as she did. I don’t have a six-pack – that’s just not my body at all.”
While I admire Jessica’s candor in admitting she wears a girdle, (Don’t I know somebody else who wears one?), the Campari calendar shoot was so airbrushed I’m surprised there wasn’t a wolf howling over a cliff underneath Jessica’s name written in the orange sky. That said, anyone else feel the urge to make out in a van with shag carpeting? Meet me at the park in ten. Gotta comb my mullet.
