The Sin City star - who gave birth to her daughter Honor Marie last June - has admitted her trim body has little to do with hours spent at the gym.My friend, Carl, pointed out to me that when the groom prepares for his wedding he finds a suit that flatters his body shape, whereas the bride tries to change her body to fit a certain dress, and a certain expectation of how she ought to look. I thought that was a pretty profound comment for a somewhat drunk guy on a ferry not long before midnight.
She said: "I wore a girdle. Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist - any kind of band or girdle works. I didn't recover as fast as she did.
"I don't have a six-pack - that's just not my body at all."
Jessica - who married her husband Cash Warren in a secret ceremony last May - hated working out after having Honor Marie, and refuses to return to the gym.
She said: "The workouts were horrible - I cried. And I haven't worked out since."
