Jessica Alba has spent much of the last few years focusing on motherhood and launching her lifestyle brand, The Honest Company, but now, the bombshell who lined the walls of dorm rooms everywhere is back. The actress, who looks better than ever in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, sits down with us to talk about how her character Nancy Callahan has evolved since 2005's Sin City.

Alba also gets real about her revenge fantasies ("I definitely channeled some of that in playing this role," she says), dealing with hate from gossip bloggers and the constant questions about her ethnic background.

Plus, the actress takes a trip down memory lane with us to her most iconic role to date: dancer/choreographer Honey Daniels in her 2003 breakthrough hit, Honey. Alba recalls working with some of the biggest hip hop artists of the day, including Missy Elliott, Ginuwine and Lil Romeo. "I think he goes by Romeo now," she jokes.

Watch our exclusive interview with Jessica Alba below. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters on August 22.
