American actress, Jessica Alba has revealed that she stopped eating as a teenager because she was trying to watch her diet. The mother of three further added that she did this because she did not want to tempt men with her curves. The actress who was raised Catholic in a conservative home revealed that her parents warned her not to wear Pepe Jeans as she was “voluptuous” and had a “booty”. She also added that when men showed interest in her, her youth pastor accused her of being at fault due to how she was dressed, even though she dressed decently. The actress shared these while speaking at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop health summit as a fellow lifestyle guru. She said: “I was meant to feel ashamed if I tempted men. Then I stopped eating a lot when I became an actress. I made myself look more like a boy so I wouldn’t get as much attention.” She added: “Nothing about being successful in this business is easy. You can’t be bitter.” Alba added that she had to leave the church because of their conflicting views especially on gay rights, premarital sex, and because they made her feel that being desired by men was her fault and something she should be ashamed of.
