Jessica Alba first caught our attention when she rose to fame as a teen star before her acting talent and gorgeous looks landed her stand-out film roles in blockbuster movies. She’s been named the “sexiest woman alive” on many occasions, but these days the 34-year-old actress is gaining recognition for her business skills and charity work.

Proving she’s not just a pretty face, in recent years the amazing, multi-tasking star has launched a range of natural household goods and beauty products. And although it’s clear that there’s a lot more to Jessica than her looks, this hasn’t stopped the buzz around her appearance. Over the years many reports have surfaced that the mum-of-two has had some plastic surgery to enhance and maintain her beauty. Is there any truth to the stories, or is it just gossip? MYA took a closer look...Because why wouldn’t you want a closer look at the stunning Jessica Alba?

Jessica became a household name after stealing the screen in films like the Fantastic Four and Sin City. Her striking features led many to question if her look was natural or if she’d paid a visit to a surgeon to refine her nose since her teen star days. In some photos, it appears that Jessica’s nose has been narrowed from the top of the bridge down to the tip. Although there is always a possibility that Alba has had a nose job, but this could simply be the curse of bad lighting, of course.

What The Star Says

As yet, the Hollywood actress has never tackled the rhinoplasty rumours and her views on the hearsay remain unconfirmed. However, in 2010 reports spread that a 21-year-old Chinese girl was considering turning to cosmetic surgery to resemble our favourite star. The girl had recently been dumped by her ex-boyfriend who had an obsession with Jessica, often insisting that his girlfriend wear a blonde wig and imitate the star’s look. In desperation, the 21-year-old decided that surgery was the only way to win her ex back.

Reportedly concerned by the news, Jessica spoke out, saying: "I think you should never have to change yourself like that. If somebody loves you, they'll love you no matter what."

Wise words, Jessica! Let’s hope the heart-broken girl listened to the advice.

Her Body

We’re not alone in thinking that Jessica has a body to-die-for; her slim yet shapely frame has made her a global sex symbol. Not long after the birth of her two children, reports began to grow that the secret to her amazing post-pregnancy figure was laser liposuction treatments. Unknown sources claimed that the star had lipo to remove fat from her stomach and thighs in 2012. But, can the sources be trusted or is something else the answer to Jessica’s toned shape?

What The Star Says

Once again, Jessica Alba remained quiet about the liposuction reports but credited her return to her pre-baby body to good nutrition, working out and…a little number from her knicker drawer!

In a 2013 magazine interview, she said: “After both pregnancies, I wore a girdle! People have been doing it for years. And, let’s face it, I don’t have the body of a 14-year-old anymore. I think the more we try not to have that unrealistic ideal, the happier we’ll be.”

Along with her body shaping secrets, Jessica shared her healthy eating habits: “I started cooking for myself when I was 12 because a lot of the food my family ate was processed. I wanted fresh. I eliminated microwave food, things with too much salt and tried to eat more natural food, things that were cooked in a kitchen as opposed to a factory.”

The Verdict

Whilst there are various stories out there about Jessica’s alleged surgery, unless the star speaks out we’ll probably never know the truth. Hollywood stars face a lot of pressure to look good in the public eye, especially after pregnancy when their bodies may have changed. Well, whether that stunning figure is the work of a surgeon or is just thanks to a bit of clever shape wear, she’s a goddess in our eyes. We love you Jessica!
