Jessica Alba on business: ‘I wanted to be treated like a guy’

Jessica Alba on business: 'I wanted to be treated like a guy'

Jessica Alba launched her billion dollar eco-friendly product line The Honest Company in 2012 and says that she had to approach Hollywood like a business and wanted to be treated like a man.

She told “Self” magazine, “For a long time, I didn’t think I was smart. I felt like an impostor. It’s not until you feel whole in yourself that you fit in anywhere. And it took me becoming a mom to actually feel that way.”

She went on to say, “I’ve always been business-minded. I approached Hollywood like a business. I was very calculated. I wanted to be treated like a guy; I wanted to put asses in seats. I saved my money, invested wisely and marketed myself. I’ve been building my own personal brand over time.”

Alba said that she has managed to have a good work and life balance, as well as a successful business. She said, “There’s something nice about me-time. My most productive thinking often happens during or after a workout.”

People reports:

Alba – who shared her morning fitness and beauty routine with SELF in a video (above) – admitted that exercising is not always easy. “I’m going to be straight with you guys, I don’t like working out,” she said in the clip. “But I feel really good after. It gives me energy. It just sets a good foundation for the day. Being strong helps me feel confident and beautiful.”

Having that good foundation also includes meditating – a tip she picked up from friend and wellness-guru Russell Simmons. “You can do a 3- or 5- or 15-minute meditation,” she said, “and just disconnect.”

And it also means “eat[ing] as fresh as possible,” which usually includes steel-cut oatmeal or a smoothie for breakfast and lunch from Real Food Daily, a eatery known for their salads and macrobiotic dishes. But that doesn’t mean that Alba doesn’t sometimes indulge in her “vice” during the day – popcorn with coconut oil, which she keeps stocked in her office.

Dinner might include lean meats, but not every night. “I’m trying to go more plant-based,” Alba said. Cutting down on meat has an impact on the environment, so if I can do my little part, I try.”

Kudos to her for creating a successful business and keeping a great work/life balance!

Kylie Jenner apologizes to Jessica Alba over body checking incident with flowers

Kylie Jenner apologizes to Jessica Alba over body checking incident with flowers

On September 16th, Jessica Alba sat down with Andy Cohen, who revealed that Kylie Jenner’s bodyguards “bodychecked” her during New York Fashion Week. She told the talk show host, “I was just really shocked. I got bodychecked! And it was like by two of them. I thought there was a fire. I guess someone was just leaving the building. Yeah, I don’t know, it was just real shocking.”

Cohen said, “Well, you look very suspicious.”

Alba replied, “I know, right? Who would trust this face?”

Afterward, Kylie made everything right with the actress by sending her a gorgeous bouquet of flowers:

Jessica Alba took to her official Instagram account to share the above picture of the flowers. She captioned the picture, “Wow! Came home to the most beautiful flower tree I’ve ever seen. Thank you @kyliejenner you are a sweetheart! So thoughtful.”

Who knew that Kylie Jenner had class enough to step up and fix the situation? Realistically speaking, though, she probably had her assistant send the flowers, but it’s the thought that counts, right?

Jessica Alba & James Cameron Lunch In Venice

Remember when Kylie Jenner’s bodyguard shoved some rando person at Fashion Week and that person was Jessica Alba?

Well, now this “rando” is speaking out! During a Sept. 16 appearance on Watch What Happens Live, the actress explained HER SIDE OF THE STORY:

“I was just really shocked. I got bodychecked!” the Entourage actress explained. “And it was like by two of them. I thought there was a fire. I guess someone was just leaving the building. Yeah, I don’t know, it was just real shocking.”

When host Andy Cohen asked if Alba had received an apology from Jenner, she admitted she hadn’t, but quickly noted, “I’m sure they don’t know what’s happening.”

“Well, you look very suspicious,” Cohen quipped.

It’s kinda funny that a woman who makes people cry gets a little SHOVE of her own medicine. That being said, Kylie’s bodyguards need to COOL IT. Right?

Jessica Alba doesn’t like any Gwyneth Paltrow comparisons, thank you very much

Jessica Alba doesn't like any Gwyneth Paltrow comparisons, thank you very much

Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow are both businesswomen of sorts, but that’s where the comparisons should end – this according to Jessica Alba.

She and Gwyneth are actresses who run their own lifestyle brands, but she feels that it’s unfair and sexist to lop the two of them into the same category.

Jessica revealed, “What I think is unfair is to lump actresses together. People aren’t lumping Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher together. They do other businesses. I think it’s expected that when you get success in one area, you’re supposed to evolve and try to do something else – especially in business, and especially if you’re a man.”

In the September issue of “Allure” magazine, she credits her husband Cash Warren with enabling her to become a successful entrepreneur. She said, “It wouldn’t really be possible without him. He helped me put together my initial business plan. He was always my biggest cheerleader. Having someone who genuinely has your back, no matter what, there’s nothing like that. It’s a real unconditional love. The partner that you choose to go through life with you, that’s your chosen family.”
