I really hated Angelina Jolie's constant insistence on her sex appeal throughout her giant pregnancy. 'I'm lucky to be with a man who finds pregnancy sexy'. Really, lucky? Looking like Angelina Jolie and everything, you'd think she'd only be able to find someone who called her a big fatso and told her to get out. It just seems like awful boasting. And the news that she was having to be extra creative sexually, it was just ridiculously annoying to anyone who IS pregnant. First of all, one can imagine basically where this extra creativity is leading, and it's not that wowee exciting crazy sexy Angelina, is it? And second, when you're pregnant, you're often puking, in pain, tired, and yes, unhappily bloated and fat. To have the added pressure of Angelina Jolie telling you that Brad Pitt is still hammering away at her in ever more exciting ways because she's so jolly good at it is not what I, as a pregnant woman, want to hear. I like Gwyneth Paltrow saying she couldn't look a mung bean in the face and lived on grilled cheese sandwiches. I like people who are a bit vulnerable. I'm not saying Jessica Alba comes across as desperately vulnerable but a) the interviewer WILL DEFINITELY ask her about weight, pregnancy weight, and sex. And b) it sounds like a fairly honest response. When you're pregnant, as I am now, it doesn't feel like some kind of betrayal/rejection of your baby or lack of love for it if you also gaze unhappily in the mirror at your gigantic stomach that was once flat and wonder if it will ever look pretty again. Looking pretty makes you feel happy, that's all. Wanting that should be allowed, even to the pregnant.

There is nothing wrong with feeling unsexy during one's pregnancy.But come onShe's a celebrity! She has all the resources available to her to LOOSE the weight. ( and for the record, screw the fact that she's in Hollywood, everyone expects her to loose the pounds asap)I think the negativity towards her is not because it's taboo to say you feel unsexy during a pregnancy, but that she seemed like it was a DEATH sentence, to have gained all that weight!Let's be real here, give it a few more months and girlfriend will be back to her ol' self. In recent pics, she already looks skinny.Sooo, all that gripping about being "Fat" just made her seem selfish and a bit shallow.

Jessiebannana and JCP0240, you two are right...there's some harsh bitches on here. I'm at 160, which is the heaviest I've been, and I know that if I gained more weight, I wouldn't feel sexy at all. Not everyone is fucking Angelina Jolie.

I have no clue of this girl's acting talent. I've only seen her in Never Been Kissed, and she wasn't exciting in that. I have read her comments about "brown babies" and "don't call me Latina," and they are a bit silly. I've seen her pix a lot, and I wouldn't my daughter looking at a majority of them. This takes the cake though...she wants to be taken seriously as an actress, not be seen as a pretty face only,, and what is she complaining about? I'm fat. I want to lose this weight. Why? So she can go back to playing the sexy girl?

She looks stunning, I must say, but she's known more for her body than her acting skills...

Alba isn't someone I've ever really anything other than "meh" about. So I really don't get the hatred.She's saying she felt unsexy while pregnant. This makes her a bad person HOW?!?!?! ESPECIALLY in her industry. ESPECIALLY for the roles she's expected to play.She is saying there's a double standard when it comes to men and women and sex. None of you are disagreeing right? Because seriously, that would be ridiculous. The double standard is sort of like the sky being blue and grass being green.Maybe I've just missed out on all these awful things she's said in the past but ugh there appear to be just a whole of nastiness directed Alba's way. If I recall the "latina" comment was essentially that she didn't want to be pigeon-holed as a "latina" actress and assigned "latina" parts. She just wanted to be an actress. Period. As someone who is also a minority I know EXACTLY what she means and I think that's a fair request. oh well, the nastiness will continue regardless of what I think on the matter...

You can tell she's used to being considered the sexy, skinny, pretty girl. She doesn't know what to do with herself when she's not.

I just think Jessica Alba is damned if she does, damned if she doesn't. I mean really, if these quotes were issued by someone a bit more "sympathetic", or "likeable", do you think this groundswell of negativity would have built up around her. I don't. I admire her candor. If I had been thin my whole life and suddently became pregnant, and gained a lot of weight (relatively speaking), I would be terrified too! If my whole persona in Hollywood was predicated on my sex appeal, or lack thereof, I would be inclined to feel the same way. She isn't a great actress, and she probably knows that, so she has to flaunt what she does have. Superficial, you bet, but so is the rest of Hollywierd. It's sad that their is so much pressure on female celebrities to look a certain way, but you play the hand you have been dealt. I don't hear too many guys comment on how sexy a pregnant women is, unless it's their wife or girlfriend LOL. People parse celebrities' comments looking for the most trivial thing that either confirms or contradicts their opinion of them. That's a lot of pressure for anybody. If it was me, you bet my interviews would be rehearsed and stilted. Heaven forbid, you alienate any readers with your veracity.

The real mystery here is how Jessica Alba manages to keep getting work. None of her movies have ever made money or even been critical successes(except maybe Fantastic 4 and Sin City but those still didn't do that well and had built-in comic book audiences). From The Love Guru to The Eye to Awake to Good Luck Chuck to Honey, she just makes bad movie after bad movie. Maybe she should be thanking the paparazzi instead of scowling at them all the time...
