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.”

I’m Confused If Jessica Alba Is A Mean Girl Or Not

Celebs Out During Paris Fashion Week

I’m confused, Jessica Alba– are you a mean girl or do you HATE mean girls?

Earlier this year, Jessica made a big stink about making people cry at her company, but now she’s all like, “I can’t escape mean girls, UGH.” So which is it, Jess? Us Weekly reports:

Jessica Alba opened up about female friendships in a new interview with Yahoo! Parenting, and revealed that she still comes in contact with some Regina Georges, years after she left high school.

“Doesn’t it feel like the mean girl thing from high school sort of just like transforms into adulthood through motherhood?” Alba, 34, quipped.

Yes, yes it does. But it sounds like YOU can be the mean girl, too, lady. Earlier she told More magazine that she’s a take-no-prisoners sorta lady.

“I’ve made people cry,” the Honey star noted. “I have to say, ‘This isn’t personal. This is what needs to get done, and it’s just as simple as that. And … we’re not crying anymore.’ I’m learning to tone myself down.” Her mother Cathy even referred to the star as “a workaholic control freak” in the office.

Check out the whole Yahoo video HERE, and weigh in below on whether you think Jessica is a MEAN GIRL or NOT…

Jessica Alba’s Company Is Worth A LOT of MONEY.

Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 6.46.59 AM

I know we always talk about actresses landing women’s magazine covers…but Forbes?! NAILED IT.

Sure, she had to make a couple people cry to get there, but Jessica Alba is now a hugely successful businesswoman with a rapidly expanding company.

The actress is featured on the cover of Forbes‘ latest issue, joined by a cover line reading, “America’s Richest Self-Made Women.” The article talks about her Honest Company and it’s massive valuation.  The company (which was founded in 2012) counted $10 million in revenue in its first year, going on to skyrocket to a projected total of $250 million for 2015, earning an OVERALL VALUATION OF ONE BILLION DOLLARS.

YEAH.  Remember when you saw Jessica in Flipper? Now she’s a power CEO.

The mag estimates Alba’s personal net worth at $200 million, putting her above the estimated totals of Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, and Katy Perry.

NOT TOO SHABBY, JESS!

Jessica Alba Is A Ruthless Businesswoman!

PICS: Jessica Alba Steps Out In New York

You heard me. She made people CRY!

At least that’s what Jessica Alba said when she spoke to More for its May 2015 cover story about being the boss at her very own venture, The Honest Company.

“People act like starting the Honest Company is such a departure,” the Sin City actress, 34, noted of her career in Hollywood. “But the reality is I’ve been selling other people’s TV products, beauty products, movie products. I’m leveraging skills I’ve honed in Hollywood for years.”

One skill that she’s currently still refining? “Sometimes I’m a little more iron fist than velvet glove,” Alba observed. “I’m straight to the point.”

In fact, her brutal honesty and work ethic have made the workplace a bit dramatic.

“I’ve made people cry,” the Honey star noted. “I have to say, ‘This isn’t personal. This is what needs to get done, and it’s just as simple as that. And … we’re not crying anymore.’ I’m learning to tone myself down.” Her mother Cathy even referred to the star as “a workaholic control freak” in the office — but with good reason.

“Being an actress is like a vacation,” Alba reflected to More. “Business is relentless. People work hard here. It’s nice to be around people who are so committed.” In fact, the company has plans to expand into beauty and feminine care products.

Yikes! I never thought of Jessica that way.  But I guess she has to be- her company is moving into lots of new territory, and it’s all about aggressive commitment to success!

“We are doing an organic tampon, but it won’t be in a cardboard applicator,” she noted. “It’s in a plant-based plastic compact applicator, which is the first of its kind. [As a result of customer suggestions] I’m working on skin care, hair care, mattresses, air filters, paint. Our customers really want paint… The increases [of demand] have coincided with the rise of these untested, potentially harmful chemicals. I know firsthand what it’s like to have a compromised immune system. I really, really didn’t want to have my kids go through what I did. If [the government] won’t safeguard my family, I’m going to have to.”

That commitment has translated itself into a value of nearly $1 billion for the eco-friendly brand. “When you look at the marketplace that we’re playing in, it’s trillions of dollars. Window cleaner alone is a billion-dollar business, just to give a bit of perspective, because people get so freaked out by our valuation. Also, it doesn’t feel tangible yet, because I’m still hustling,” she explained, as opposed to her previous life in Hollywood.
