Mixing Business With Motherhood


Have you ever seen a photo of Jessica Alba where she didn’t look good? Yeah, I didn’t think so! LOL. The actress graces the cover of this month’s Glamour UK magazine where she talks about her career, her business, The Honest Company, and motherhood. Here are some highlights:

She only wants to work in good films now: “When you have kids, you kind of think, I don’t need to work just to work. I want to sink my teeth into a character that makes it worth not being with my kids, or not being at the office. Having kids, having strong relationships with my husband, my friends, that it is my priority… that’s what really defines me, not a tabloid or a movie opening or a poster or an endorsement.”

On the Honest Company: “I am not approaching it like an actress, I’m approaching it like a mum, and I just want the best for my family and I feel like all mums do. You can’t really argue with that.”

Is she an actress or business woman now? “I am both… As you are building your career you make certain choices, and I didn’t know how to not work, and I didn’t know how to discern what I wanted to do or not do. I was just like, bring it.”

Her multitasking idol is Eleanor Roosevelt: “The perseverance she had made the world a better place for women, for the civil rights movement, just all the things that she did for veterans, teachers. She was one woman who dreamt big and didn’t take no for an answer.”
