Strip no bar for Jessica Alba

Actress Jessica Alba has claimed that she has no inhibitions in going nude for a scene, provided the story demands that.

 

The sexy star, who will next be seen in Into The Blue, has admitted that she would bare all for a good role where it is

necessary for her to go naked.

 

'"I'm going to have to face that when a big director who I really respect has an amazing story -- it might be necessary for me to do a nude scene,' Sun quoted her as saying. 'But right now, I couldn't sleep well at night being naked in anything. My father would lose his mind!'

 

Jessica, who is currently dating actor Cash Warren, also revealed she thinks European women are more liberated than American girls.

 

'I'm actually okay with my body, and the fact that I have curves and flaws,' the paper quoted the actress as saying.

 

'I think that European women have a much healthier attitude about bodies and sex, and I have more of that mentality,' she  added.

Diaz and Roberts dress shabbily? 

 

Celebrity designer Valentino has described America's Sweethearts heroine Julia Roberts and Charlie's Angels star Cameron Diaz as dressing like bag ladies.

 

In an interview with German newspaper Die Zeit, the designer said the two actresses looked 'unkempt in jogging trousers'.

 

'They look like homeless people. You see Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz running around looking unkempt in jogging trousers, they look like bag ladies, like homeless people. In the past, you never saw that,' he was quoted by the BBC as telling the paper.

 

The Italian designer made his name in the 1960s and still designs for the Valentino fashion group.
