Jessica Alba thinks diets are ”boring.” The ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ star – who has two children, Honor, six and Haven, three, with Cash Warren – believes that life is ”too short” for giving up her favourite foods, admitting that she loves candy.
She said: ”I think diets are boring … Life’s too short to deprive yourself. I can’t get through a meeting without candy.”
The 33-year-old actress found exercise ”brutal” when she was younger but loves it now because it means she can have some alone time. She shared: ”I didn’t appreciate working out when I was in my 20s. It was purely for work, and I hated it so much. It was just brutal. Now I enjoy it, because it’s ‘me’ time and a stress-reliever.”
Jessica has a home gym – where she does sprints and Pilates as well as attending ”competitive” spin classes – admitting that she loves how she feels after having exercised. She said: ”It’s fun to mix it up. And I really like to work out with friends. They keep me accountable. I like how I feel after a workout.”
Despite her intensive exercise regime, Jessica isn’t worried about perfection. She told Natural Health magazine: ”I’m a little squishy right now. It’s fine. I don’t care.”
