    Jessica Alba says she doesn't mind the so-called body flaws that come with pregnancy – in fact, she says sagging boobs and cellulite are "irrelevant."

    "Pregnancy was the most incredible experience I've ever had," the 28-year-old actress told SELF Magazine in its February issue. "So I'll take the stretch marks. I'll take the sagging boobs. I'll take the cellulite I can never get rid of."

    The actress, who has an 18-month-old daughter (Honor Marie) with husband Cash Warren, said self-assurance is key.

    "If you walk around with your head held high and you're happy and positive, then all that other stuff is irrelevant. Confidence is number one," she continued.

    As for her diet and workout regime, the actress said she keeps it simple and healthy – but she's not a gym rat.

    "I think you have to eat in a way that makes you feel your best. I include a lot of vegetables and lean protein and fruit and grains in my diet. I'm not a big workout person," she told the mag. "Every single day, I tell my girlfriends we're starting a regimen. And then it's, like, 'Want to get dinner? Want a glass of wine?'"

    And in some surprising Jessica news, the actress said she loves to buy used household items off the Internet.

    "I've bought 70 percent of my house off CraigsList!" she explained. "I've found so many things: couches, tables, lamps. I love the idea of recycling furniture and there being a history there."
