Jessica Alba wears a girdle and other tidbits from the new issue of ELLE

Jessica AlbaSometimes, we truly, deeply feel sorry for Hollywood actresses.

Take, for example, Jessica Alba, who, in one of the upcoming issue of ELLE magazine, talks about trying to get back into shape unhumanly fast after giving birth to her daughter, Honor.

In the story, Alba describes workouts so horrible and strenuous, they made her cry.

Another trial she endured for beauty's sake? “I wore a girdle," she says. "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 [still] don’t have a six-pack.”

All of this torture wasn't even for a film role—it was so the 27-year-old could star in Campari's new ad campaign (and so, if you remember, the company could airbrush her perfectly gorgeous body anyway).
