Jessica Alba Talks Pregnancy and Politics

by at . Comments

In the latest issue of Self, Jessica Alba speaks glowingly about her husband, her political affiliation, her pregnancy and her feelings on Nancy Pelosi.

It's a wide-ranging interview.

Starring alongside every other A-lister in Hollywood in next month's Valentine's Day - from Taylor Lautner to Julia Roberts to Patrick Dempsy - Alba dishes on these topics below...

On pregnancy: "[It] was the most incredible experience I've ever had. So I'll take the stretch marks. I'll take the sagging boobs. I'll take the cellulite I can never get rid of. If you walk around with your head held high and you're happy and positive, then all that other stuff is irrelevant."

On politics: "When I was in Washington, D.C., I got to meet Nancy Pelosi. She was so warm. I just grinned from ear to ear with my mouth open and my eyes bulging out of my head! Afterward, I called [husband Cash Warren] and totally geeked out. I was beside myself. Tickled pink! The fact that a woman is speaker of the house? Oh, my God!"

On Warren: "I love the way I feel after Cash and I wake up. Or talk on the phone. Everything! Every time I see him or talk to him, I fall in love with him all over again."
