Since the beginning of her career, Jessica Alba has been firm on one point: she won't do nude scenes. And she has a pretty good reason.

"I don't want my grandparents to see my boobs. That's it," the 33-year-old actress dished to Glamour in their June issue.

"It would be weird at Christmas," she said. "And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never 'elevate' the picture."

The actress also discussed her family life with the magazine, talking about her relationship with husband Cash Warren. The pair have been married for six years. 

"Relationships can be tough, and I was engaged before," she said. "I've only had two boyfriends. In the first one, with Michael [Weatherly, star of NCIS], I didn't have a voice yet, and he was so much older."

"But now [with Cash] there are no more surprises," she continued. "At around two and a half years, you're kind of like, 'Are we in it? Are we doing this?' And the easiest part? That would be snuggling every night."

The mother-of-two also talked about her daughters, Honor and Haven, who were the inspirations behind her business, The Honest Company. After suffering from a slew health problems as a child -- everything from pneumonia to appendicitis to asthma -- it was important to her to keep her own children healthy and happy. 

"Come hell or high water, my kids were going to be as healthy as possible," she said. "My life was tough as a kid. I was so lonely. And I felt really disconnected from my friends, because I spent so much time in the hospital with grown-ups and, and felt like a weirdo. It's a strange way to spend your time as a kid. All you want to do is play."
