Jessica Alba may not mind posing in a bikini for a workout and diet magazine, but the actress said she “is not going to lie” when asked how she really feels about exercising.

“Working out sucks.”

The 34-year-old said she would rather take a workout class because it makes her more accountable.

“I have to break a sweat or I don’t feel like I’ve gotten anything done,” Alba said in an interview for Shape magazine. “When I only have 30 minutes, I’ll do a series of burpees, mountain climbers, squat jumps, planks, and a few sun salutations.” (VIDEO: Jessica Alba’s Smoking Maxim Cover Is Sin City)

And Alba said she hasn’t always felt great in her own skin.

“I wasn’t truly confident about my body until I had my daughters, Honor, 7, and Haven, 3. I felt more comfortable in my own skin after they were born. Plus, if I want them to be happy with their bodies, I need to walk the walk.” (PHOTOS: Chrissy Teigen And Jessica Alba Went On Spring Break Together)
