Former DARK ANGEL star Jessica Alba is open to the idea of having a one-night stand - as long as the man leaves the next morning.

The 23-year-old actress, who was recently romantically linked to MARK WAHLBERG and baseball star Derek Jeter, admits that while she can entertain the idea of getting intimate with a man just for the night, she has a feeling she'd want him out of her bed before sunrise.

She tells COSMOPOLITAN magazine, "I just wanted to see what it was like to be with different people. I don't think a girl's a slut if she enjoys sex.

"I could have a one-night stand, and I'm the kind of girl who looks over in the morning and is like, 'Do you really have to be here?' I don't need to cuddle and do all that stuff because I know what it is and I don't try to make it more.

"I feel like a lot of women try to make it into more, so they don't feel so bad about just wanting to have sex. I don't really have a problem with just wanting sex. Never have.

"Even when I was a virgin and wanted to marry the first guy who I slept with, I never passed any judgments about that. But now I'm done with dating around."

Alba is currently dating Cash Warren, an employee of the production company working on her upcoming movie Fantastic Four.
