Yowza, Jessica Alba!

The actress just made summertime even hotter with her latest wet and wild photo spread for Maxim's latest issue (on stands Aug. 12). Alba graces the cover of the mag in a sizzling bikini, flaunting her enviable curves while also rocking a wet white T-shirt and holding her drenched tresses back to show her killer smize.

But aside from posing in seriously drool-worthy photos for the magazine, the A-lister also hinted at overcoming some inner demons from her past.

"She's rad," Alba said of her acting coach. "She really believes that actors are here to tell stories and to heal people through healing themselves. And she believes every character is about you healing something in your life."

So what did the mother of two have to heal? "It's so personal," she said, before making it clear that she won't be divulging exactly what personal battles she's faced throughout her career.

"I don't want to talk about my issues. But I definitely feel like I tackled something and came out the other side. Everything that led up to all this was worth it," she said. "I'm really comfortable in my own skin, and I'm not apologizing for myself."

The 33-year-old star is reprising her iconic Sin City role as super-toned Nancy Callahan for the franchises' latest installment Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and revealed to us some of her sinful indulgences. "I love nachos so much!" she admitted to E! News. "And tequila."

"Looking back now, my friends are like, 'Your body was really good when you were dancing. You should do that more often!" Alba said with a laugh.

Jessica's bod still looks great to us!
