How does Jessica Alba get over a failed relationship? On Thurday, the 35-year-old stopped by "The Late Show," where host Stephen Colbert was quick to ask her about the ink on her wrist. Alba, who clearly didn't want to dwell on the subject, vaguely replies, "This guy." And though, Colbert, picks up on her cues and suggests they move on, he nevertheless asks her if the tattoo is of her ex's name.
"That was called 'My First Breakup,'" the "Fantastic Four" actress explained. The brunette beauty empathetically shut down that theory before explaining her ink. "It means the manifestation of spiritual beauty." "He was really anti-tattoos, and I felt like after I broke up with him, I, like, found myself again," she continued. He's like a famous actor." So, who could she be referring to?
Contrary to how people may feel, I've never used my sexuality. When I'm in a meeting, I want to tell you why I'm an asset, how I'm a commodity, how I can put asses in the seats, not, 'There's a chance you're going to be able to fuck me.' That's never been my deal." In 2008, Alba was ranked No.34 on Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list, was ranked No.2 on Wizard magazine's "Sexiest Women of TV" list, and was named in GQ Magazine one of the 25 Sexiest Women in film of all time. "Older men would hit on me, and my youth pastor said it was because I was wearing provocative clothing, when I wasn't. They believe God wouldn't allow the Bible to be written if it wasn't what they are supposed to believe.
In 2011, Alba appeared in the film Spy Kids: All the Time in the World. Alba was involved in litigation against Playboy for its use of her image (from a promotional shot for Into the Blue) without her consent, which she contends gave the appearance that she was featured in the issue in a "nude pictorial".
In March 2012, Alba announced that she will be releasing a book, The Honest Life, based on her experiences creating a natural, non-toxic life for her family. However, she later dropped the lawsuit after receiving a personal apology from Playboy owner Hugh Hefner, who agreed to make donations to two charities that Alba has supported.
Alba also maintains a strict no-nudity clause in her contract. Alba also had objections to the church's condemnations of premarital sex and homosexuality, and what she saw as a lack of strong female role models in the Bible, explaining "I thought it was a nice guide, but it certainly wasn't how I was going to live my life." Her "religious devotion [began] to wane" at the age of 15 when she guest-starred as a teenager with gonorrhea in the throat in a 1996 episode of the television series Chicago Hope. Her father's matrilineal line (Mtdna) showed Sephardi Jewish roots, and DNA testing revealed that lawyer Alan Dershowitz is a genetic relative of hers.
She was given the option to appear nude in Sin City by the film's directors, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, but declined the offer, saying, "I don't do nudity. Her friends at church reacted negatively to her role, making her lose faith in the church. Jessica's global admixture was 72.7% European, 22.5% East Asian and Native American, 2% Sub-Saharan African, 0.3% Middle Eastern and North African, 0.1% South Asian, and 2.4% "No Match".
