Since a woman is often reduced to how she looks, celebs in the public eye often go to extreme lengths in order to stay trim. Jessica Alba, who has made a career out of starring in crappy movies and posing for men’s magazines, is no different.

In a recent interview with Net-A-Porter, Alba revealed that she wore a corset for three months to flatter her stomach.

“It was brutal; it’s not for everyone,” she said. “I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it.”

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time Alba has undertaken extreme measures to maintain her svelte frame. Last November, Perez Hilton reported that Alba underwent laser liposuction treatment.

And in June 2011, Alba admitted to Lucky magazine that she starved herself to lose the weight she gained during her second pregnancy. At the time, she said, “I have a hard time with portion control, so I have 1,200 calorie meals delivered. But I also work out, so basically I’m starving. It sucks. I drink a lot of water.”

In 2005, after the actress became famous for sought after bod, she told Glamour magazine that she once suffered from an eating disorder. “A lot of girls have eating disorders, and I did too. I got obsessed with it,” Alba revealed.

Alba also has a history of mistakenly thinking she’s larger than she is.

That same year, she told RollingStone: “I hear people in this industry talking shit all the time about how Jennifer Lopez is fat,” she says tersely. “And I know if they’re calling her fat, they’re saying the same shit about me.”

Uhm. Can you say … delusional?
