Jessica Alba states her intention for "thoughtful" acting
In a blatent yet accidental admittance that she used to do anything for money, Jessica Alba has stated that she doesn’t really need to work anymore, and in light of that, will only accept really serious roles.
“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,” explains Alba. “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.” If no one is willing to take her seriously as an actor, then perhaps people will as an entrepreneur. Last year Jessica launched her own eco-friendly lifestyle company, The Honest Company, and most recently, she launched a new book: The Honest Life. Jessica compares her book to other celebrities authors, telling New York Daily News: “Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn't grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: repurposing things and making things at home.”
