While Hollywood starlets like Kendall Jenner, Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus can’t seem to keep their clothes on, Jessica Alba is holding firm to her no nudity clause. The 33-year-old actress posed, fully-clothed in an Isabel Marant tank, Brunello Cucinelli pants, and Azaara earrings, on the cover of Glamour magazine’s June 2014 issue and revealed why she’ll never flash her boobs on the boob tube.

“I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs,” she explained. “That’s it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never ‘elevate’ the picture. I was raised by my grandparents and my parents—my grandmother was a very religious Catholic, and my parents became born-again Christians later. So that was hard-core. It’s very different than how [my children are] being raised. I was into God. I really went for it, man. Like, in the IE—the Inland Empire, outside L.A., where all the smog blows—they want to save your soul. The further I got into it, it wasn’t for me. But I’m very close to my family [today]. Church gave me that enlightenment, that there’s something bigger than yourself. I’m still connected to a spiritual thing, just not that.”


Alba credits her upbringing with instilling a strong work ethic and business-savvy mind. Besides starring in blockbuster films like Fantastic Four, Into The Blue and Sin City, she also founded The Honest Company which promotes and sells unquestionably safe, eco-friendly, beautiful, convenient, and affordable products. “Where I was from, you had to answer to a man if he was the breadwinner,” says the California native. “My mom told me that didn’t need to be the case for me — I didn’t need to rely on a man. She taught me how to hustle. I was determined to be financially independent. So I started making my own money when I was 12 [with acting]. That was freedom.”

As the mother (with husband Cash Warren) of Honor, six, and Haven, three, Alba started The Honest Company with her daughters and her own childhood in mind. “I had so many health issues, and come hell or high water, my kids were going to be as healthy as possible,” she said. “My life was tough as a kid. I was so lonely. And I felt really disconnected from my friends because I spent so much time in the hospital with grown-ups, and felt like a weirdo. It’s a strange way to spend your time as a kid. All you want to do is play.”
