Jessica Alba is such a sexy stunner!
But she admits she didn't always feel that way! In fact, the brunette beauty recently opened up to InStyle about her younger years, revealing she was quite the awkward teenage virgin!
The mag's July cover girl remembered being at a steamy photoshoot as a teen, and feeling VERY confused about how to pose for seXXXy shots!

The 35-year-old dished:
"My sexuality made me very uncomfortable. I remember my first Maxim shoot, they were telling me to pose a certain way, and I was like, 'Agh! I'm 19. I'm a virgin. I don't even know how to do that.' It was so awkward."
In fact, the momma-of-two explained that she preferred more of a tomboy style when it came to fashion, adding:
"I was into wearing Triple Five Soul baggy cargo pants. I would get Hanes tank tops and dye them with Rit dye and wear Nike sports bras and sweatshirts. It was the opposite of sexy."
The gorgeous gal enjoyed dressing for comfort so much, she was actually anxious about donning a pair of stilettos for the first time, recalling:
"The first time I wore a dress and heels, I had to go to the Golden Globes—I was nominated for Dark Angel. I took my brother. I was so worried about not looking like a lady. I remember thinking, 'I hope I don't trip.'"
LOL! We've all been there, Jessica!
But the actress confessed that her stress stemmed from being labeled a lusty lady, spilling:
"I sort of went through a life crisis. I was like, 'This isn't what I set out to be. I'm so much more than this, but I don't know how not to be a sex symbol.'"
Well, Jess IS so much more than that! And we're glad those insecurities are a thing of the past!
