Jessica Alba – COSMOPOLITAN

Jessica Alba – COSMOPOLITAN

C: Are the rumors that you dated Mark Wahlberg and Derek Jeter true?

J: I don’t want to say, but I will say they’re both really nice guys. It’s funny because my mom would [read about me dating someone and] go, “I want to meet so-and-so.” Or she’d say, “You’re not dating him as far as I’m concerned because I haven’t met him.” I had a wild period with men for a second, but I wasn’t dating any more guys than any other girl – it’s just that most people aren’t put in magazines.

C: Do you think it’s important for girls to play the field a bit before settling down?

J: I just wanted to see what it was like to be with different people. I don’t think a girl’s a slut if she enjoys sex. I could have a one-night stand, and I’m the kind of girl who looks over in the morning and is like, Do you really have to be here? I don’t need to cuddle and do all that stuff because I know what it is and I don’t try to make it more. I feel like a lot of women try to make it into more, so they don’t feel so bad about just wanting to have sex. I don’t really have a problem with wanting sex. Never have. Even when I was a virgin and wanted to marry the first guy who I slept with, I never passed any judgments about that. But now I’m done [with dating around].

C: So you’re dating someone seriously now?

J: Yes, his name is Cash…he’s not famous. He might The One. It was kind of a love-at-first-sight thing, but I met him when I was dating someone else, so it started off as a friendship. I was actually attracted to his spirit and mind before it went to a physical place. We’re both old people in young people’s bodies. The first week that we kind of got together, he gave me a note and signed it with a dollar sign, because his name is Cash. It just said, “I really, really like you.” And that was exactly how I felt at the time. Really, really liking him too much…I was already in love with him. And I hated it because it was terrifying that I cared about him so much right away and I already wanted him to be around forever.

C: Do you guys ever fight?

J: The reality is that his faults are very similar to my faults, so I can’t really be pissed off about it. He loses things all the time; so do I. He’s late; I’m always late. People are unbelievably giving and caring and understanding of me because of what I do for a living and because actors get their asses kissed everywhere they go, so I can be extra-understanding in a relationship.

C: So you’re done with dating stars now…but do you still have any celeb crushes?

J: I would have to say Johnny Depp, Michael Caine, Steve McQueen, Morgan Freeman, and Jake Gyllenhaal.
