Beautiful actress Jessica Alba recently confessed she loves her curvy body, arguing she wants to become a role model for all the girls around the world.
Alba, 24, who is best known for her roles in movies such as Idle Hands, and her starring role in the TV series Dark Angel, declared she's proud of her body and hopes to encourage young women to be more like her, and not like the skinny Hollywood celebrities.
She says: "At the end of the day I just had to think that girls who have curves and aren't the skinniest things in the world are going to feel more comfortable seeing me as the main character than someone else.
"So I had to just think that maybe I would help young girls with their body image."
Jessica rose to greater prominence in Hollywood in 1999 after appearing as a member of a snobby high school clique in the Drew Barrymore romantic comedy "Never Been Kissed", and as the female lead in the 1999 comedy-horror film "Idle Hands", opposite Devon Sawa
Her big break may have been as the star of the popular Fox sci-fi TV series "Dark Angel", which was co-created by writer/director James Cameron, who picked Jessica from a pool of 1,200 candidates for the role of genetically-engineered super soldier Max Guevera.
The show ran for two seasons before being canceled in 2002. Since then her most notable roles have been as an aspiring dancer/choreographer in "Honey", the stripper Nancy Callahan in "Sin City", and as the classic Marvel Comics character Invisible Woman in "Fantastic Four".
