Jessica Alba Claims She Doesn’t Go to the Gym: I Just ‘Cover the Bits’

Hold up! Jessica Alba told Ellen DeGeneres during a recent interview for the comedian’s show on Monday, November 7, that she doesn’t work out. The Honest Company founder made the comment while talking about trick-or-treating with her kids on Halloween. 

“You walk up and down and you’re getting exercise, so I didn’t even need to go to the gym — not like I go to the gym, but I was like, I really don’t need to go to the gym,” Alba said of walking around with her daughters, Honor and Haven, over Halloween weekend.

DeGeneres then questioned Alba’s statement about not working up a sweat while presenting the actress with her impressive Shape magazine cover.

“You know how you cover the bits and you know how to [pose]?” Alba responded, addressing her October 2016 cover look. “That’s what I was doing.”

The Honest Beauty founder went on to promote her makeup line, saying it’s all “about inner beauty” and “confidence.” 

Despite telling DeGeneres she never goes to the gym, Alba told Shape in the interview published two months ago that she works out regularly — but she's not hard on herself if she misses a workout here and there.

“If I work out four times, I consider it a successful week, but it’s typically more like two to three days a week because that’s what I have time for,” she told the mag.
