The summer of 2005 truly was a magical time. “Hollaback Girl” and The Pussycat Dolls were on heavy rotation, Sandra Oh was still on “Grey’s Anatomy” and Jessica Alba was in not one, but three big-budget movies.
Alba’s movie career fizzled out after her golden summer — mostly because she decided to focus on raising her children — but fans of the actress formerly known as Sue Storm can rest easy. With “Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” hitting theaters on August 22 and four more films down the pipeline, Alba is poised to make a major comeback. Also, as you can clearly see from Entertainment Weekly’s Summer Must List issue cover, she certainly hasn’t lost that amazing bikini bod that helped launch her career in the first place.
Bow chicka wow wow. Alba may be a mother of two and the president of a multimillion dollar eco-friendly baby company, but she definitely just proved that she’s not afraid to ditch those mom jeans and embrace her inner (and outer) sex symbol. “Fantastic Four” marathon, anyone?
What do you think of Alba’s latest cover? Do you think she’ll be the comeback kid of 2014?
