"I just have an ownership of my body and of myself as a woman that I didn't really have before," Alba told eonline.com.
"I was such a tomboy, and I would always kinda like try and do role-playing to try and do these sexy things, but now I'm very much woman. I know who I am, I'm confident in my sexuality and now it's not so much of a departure from myself when I have to do photo shoots or play a character," she added.
In the photo spread for Maxim magazine, the 33-year-old puts her figure on display in a wet bikini while posing against a rocky hillside of the beach.
Recently, the "Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill for" actress also revealed how age has helped her let go of her inhibitions and made her feel "saucier".
