As to her racy “Caprica” shoot, Alessandra said, “I was the child who would leave school and take her clothes off the second I got into the house. I made my mom buy my lingerie when I was 5 years old. I was a sicko. My mother must have been mortified.” She added, “I love being naked. I’m a free spirit.”

Alessandra added, “I don’t want everyone to love me. I want them to sometimes despise me or think I’m crazy, think I’m insane.”
