Hollywood heartthrob (I feel gross just typing that) Jessica Alba was a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert recently and one of the first things the two chatted about was the ink Alba was sporting on her wrist.
Colbert queried, "What is this? You have a lovely tattoo on your wrist, what is that?"
Alba seemed less than thrilled to give Colbert the answer.
Alba revealed that it's a tattoo commemorating her first breakup with an actor she refers to as "this guy."
She goes on to explain that "this guy" (who many assume to be actor Michael Weatherly) was anti-tattoo and when they broke up, she got a lotus to represent "the manifestation of spiritual beauty."
The questioning from Colbert pretty much ends there, as he sensed he may have brought up an awkward subject. Alba seemed happy to talk about the rebirth the breakup brought her and is happier now with her new beau, Chris Warren.
Hollywood tattoos are always a thing of scrutiny, and Alba learned that firsthand on Colbert's show. Luckily she's in a happier place now and can chit-chat about the ink she dubs "my first breakup." If Alba is looking to avoid any more awkward conversations centering around her tattoos perhaps she should think about getting a coverup like the amazing ones found in this article.
