Apparently, Jessica Alba doesn't hold a grudge against Maxim for ranking her as only the eighth hottest woman of 2014, because she's decided to pose for the mag once again. PICS: The Top Ten Ladies on Maxim's 2014 Hot 100 List As announced by Maxim on Wednesday, Alba will be gracing the cover of their September issue (below) and appearing in a pictorial within the publication's pages. ".@JessicaAlba is on our September cover," Maxim tweeted on Wednesday. "We're pretty damn excited about it." And though the September issue doesn't hit newsstands until August 12, pics from the 33-year-old's photoshoot are already making the rounds on the web. (Alba's fans should be happy to learn that much like her cover shot, the rest of the pictorial sees her soaking wet in skimpy swimwear, despite being nowhere near a discernible body of water.) PHOTOS: Celebs Kick Off Summer By Busting Out Bikinis Have u picked up this months @maximmag shot by my sweet friend @cliffwatts for #SinCity #ADameToKillFor #nancy A photo posted by Jessica Alba (@jessicaalba) on Aug 8, 2014 at 4:27pm PDT Alba, who has appeared on the cover of Maxim several times now, also gives an interview in which she hints at some extremely personal struggles in Hollywood. "It chews you up and spits you out; it spits out a lot of people,” she says. "I don't want to talk about my issues, but I definitely feel like I tackled something and came out the other side," Alba adds. "Everything that led up to all this was worth it. I’m really comfortable in my own skin. And I’m not apologizing for myself."
