Jessica Alba has admitted she was a pre-teen tearaway, stealing her parents' car when she was just 12 and experimenting with alcohol at the age of 11.
Jessica Alba stole her parents' car when she was 12.
The 'Sin City' actress has revealed she was a wild child and drove her parents crazy with her rebellious antics, including going for joy rides in the family car and drinking alcohol when she was just 11.
In a joint interview with her mother Cathy on 'Entertainment Tonight', the 32-year-old screen beauty confessed she and a boyfriend experimented with alcohol, saying: ''We accidentally drank Wild Turkey [whiskey]. How old was I? 11?''
The star's mum retorted: ''It's a little shocking. You drank Wild Turkey in sixth grade?!''
But the 'Spy Kids 4' actress' list of offences don't end there - she also admitted to taking her parents' car out for a spin, but rather than hitting the open road, Jessica would settle for the local drive-thru.
She told her mother: ''Do you remember when I used to steal the car and go to Jack in the Box? We would go and get food. That was our activity. I was 12.''
Despite her trouble-filled childhood, Cathy is proud of how her A-list daughter - who now has two daughters of her own, Honor, four, and 21-month-old Haven, with husband Cash Warren - has blossomed into a doting mother herself.
She said tearfully: ''When I see her look at her babies with that unconditional love... I love you, pumpkin.''
