Jessica Alba is a T-shirt and boxers kind of girl

She plays a stripper well, but Jessica Alba would rather wear T-shirts and shorts

Jessica Alba certainly looks the part of a stripper and wears all the right outfits for it in the Sin City films, but in reality the actress feels much better in a T-shirt.

When she's at home with her husband, Alba said she's way more comfortable in casual clothes and would never don any of the skimpy getups she wears while playing a sexy stripper.

"No way!" She told E! News when asked if she would ever step into any of her movie costumes for husband Cash Warren. "That's a lot. I'm more simple. I like a T-shirt, maybe little boxers. That's kind of it."

Alba added that while filming her stripper scenes with all the revealing outfits, she made sure she "wasn't popping out of any of them" when she performed all her dance moves. "Everything was in place. I practiced with a lot of the different outfits so I knew what was going to happen," she said.

The modest actress also recently revealed she would not be taking her clothes all the way off for any roles and just says "no" to nude scenes.

"I don't want my grandparents to see my boobs. That's it," Alba told People magazine. "It would be weird at Christmas. And I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never 'elevate' the picture."

Additionally, the Machete star claimed that her main focus is her family and the happiness of her children, because her own childhood was not very ideal.

"My life was tough as a kid. I was so lonely," Alba revealed. "And I felt really disconnected from my friends because I spent so much time in the hospital with grown-ups, and felt like a weirdo. It's a strange way to spend your time as a kid. All you want to do is play."
