Acting is a priority, but when you’re building a company like this, you can’t just check out…This is life-changing stuff. This is legacy.

jessica-alba-talks-about-identifying-with-her-latin-heritageAlba appears on the cover of the Fall 2014 issue of Glam Belleza Latina magazine. She talks about how race is important to her identity, Latinas she admires, and the difference between her business and movie career.

Having a company that’s making the world a better place is a life calling. Performing has also been a life calling, but they’re so different. It takes a completely different side of my brain to do one versus the other. But I’m truly very proud of The Honest Company.

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-british-gq-august-2014Alba appears on the cover of the August 2014 issue of British GQ magazine. She talks about Paul Walker, the Sin City sequel, and her body.

“I have to enhance what I like about my body and my stomach is good. My legs I’m not as excited about all the time, but I wouldn’t cover up my stomach. That’s what women do. Enhance what we’ve got.

Self cover

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-self-magazine-august-2014Alba appears on the cover of the August 2014 issue of Self magazine. She talks about marriage frustrations, being in her 30’s, and food.

I have the same food philosophy for myself as I do for my kids. We eat mostly lean protein and fresh fruit and vegetables, nothing processed or from a box, if we can. For me, when I don’t eat a ton of carbs, I have more energy. But I’ll for sure have a piece of chocolate. I will mow through a bowl of guacamole. If I’m not going to have dessert, I’ll have a martini.

Magazine Cover

Jessica-Alba-Maxim-Cover-467Alba appears on the cover of the September 2014 issue of Maxim. She discusses her self worth and journey in Hollywood with the magazine.

If you put your whole identity behind this business, it’s brutal. It chews you up and spits you out; it spits out a lot of people.

1400692760_jessica-alba-articeAlba appears on the cover of the May 30/June 6 2014 issue of Entertainment Weekly. She tells EW that she isn’t into R-rated movies.

I don’t watch sexy movies, it makes me uncomfortable!

Glamour cover

Magazine Cover

Jessica-Alba-Glamour-Cover-467Alba appears on the cover of the June 2014 issue of Glamour. She reveals why she won’t do nudity when acting.

I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs. That’s it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never ‘elevate’ the picture.

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-covers-redbook-april-2014Alba appears on the cover of the April 2014 issue of Redbook magazine. She talks about Craigslist, her biggest confessions, and kissing her kids on the mouth.

I bought my hot pink desk off Craigslist. I have a problem. I love vintage furniture, and refurbishing is one of the most eco things you can do. I also got a couple of cool chairs and Danish mid-century credenzas off of Craigslist.

Nylon cover

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-covers-nylon-march-2014Alba appears on the cover of the March 2014 issue of Nylon magazine. She talks about choosing different roles and learning to be herself.

Before, I was so fearful of failure and judgment that I was scared to put myself out there. You don’t have to be a robot. You don’t have to be appropriate all the time. I used to be so hard on myself … but you have to realize that as long as you don’t make a habit of it, tomorrow will be here, and everything will be OK.

Health cover

Magazine Cover

rs_634x845-130923144745-634-jessica-alba-health.ls.92313_copyAlba appears on the cover of the October 2013 issue of Health magazine. She talks about her younger body, wearing a corset, and her diet.

To me, it’s knowing that if you eat unprocessed fresh food — it doesn’t all have to be organic, but try to have the least amount of GMOs [genetically modified organisms] and pesticides — you have energy, aren’t starving and don’t have to count calories. When I’m ‘dieting,’ I’m not eating as many snacks — because I love snacks. Popchips, Pirate’s Booty – or I could eat a pound of fruit. So I cut down on snacking when I’m trying to be healthy.

Latina cover

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-covers-latina-magazineAlba appears on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Latina magazine. She talks about choosing roles and non-toxic baby products.

It’s really hard to find baby products that use nontoxic chemicals that moms can trust. Major corporate brands that label their products ‘eco-friendly’ or ‘nontoxic’ are usually referring to the way they make their packaging, not their product.

In Style cover

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-covers-instyle-february-2013Alba appears on the cover of the February 2013 issue of In Style magazine. She talks about knowing her husband was the one, what she’s learned from motherhood, and her style.

My style is more adventurous since I became a mom. In the past, I was into my uniform of leggings and a sweater. Now I’m willing to try bold prints, bright colors, and different cuts. Never say never, but I probably won’t ever wear booty shorts. I feel pretty confident about that.

Self cover

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-covers-self-september-2012Alba appears on the cover of the September 2012 issue of Self magazine. She talks about her workout routine, The Honest Company, and going from Hollywood to the business world.

It’s awesome—it really does feel like this is my third baby. It’s a deep passion of mine and I spend all my time at the office. I think it’s a nice balance to Hollywood because it’s so free and it’s so creative and so much of what you do is in someone else’s hands, essentially and this is something that I could actually control and I could see something from the beginning to the end and there’s something really wonderful and fulfilling about that. Especially when it was so hard to get it going for so long. For it to actually be here and exist is pretty cool.

jessica-alba-parentingAlba appears on the cover of the April 2012 issue of Parenting magazine. She talks about her kids and the press, what inspired her to launch natural products, and what matters most.

Before I had kids, I was always so focused on my career…Nothing else really matters to me [now] aside from my children and their well-being.

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-la-confidentialAlba appears on the cover of the March 2012 issue of Los Angeles Confidential magazine. She talks about balancing career and motherhood, her style changing, and how motherhood changed her.

I feel like I’ve finally come into my own and become the person I always should have been, or that I always wanted to be. I feel more grounded, free and comfortable in my own skin than I ever have. The paradigm just shifted completely to my family.

Jessica Alba interview

Seacrest interviews Alba during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how she lost the weight after her pregnancy.

I ate better, all organic and fresh food, tried to stay away from packaged and processed food, and I exercised. I was looking for safe and healthy products to give my baby. I read that there are so many toxic chemicals in our everyday products, even in baby products. I was completely horrified.

Launches The Honest Company

jessica-albahonest-company-440Alba and Gavigan launch The Honest Company, a collection of completely toxic-free household cleaning goods, diapers and wipes to help eliminate the hassle of hunting down natural options for every family.

They’re the best! They have the cutest designs and patterns and they work better than any diaper I’ve ever tried before. I created Honest because I was extremely frustrated trying to find safer, eco-friendly products for my family that actually worked.

We all went out for it – my mom, my auntie, her four kids, my auntie’s boyfriend, my brother and I all sardined inside our Buick Regal. That’s how we rolled back then.” Once there, she was asked to list any acting experience. “I lied and said I done plays. My mom definitely taught me how to hustle.

Cash and I are so excited to announce the birth of our daughter, Haven Garner Warren. She was born on Saturday Aug. 13, weighed 7 lbs, and was 19-inches long. Healthy and happy! Big sister Honor couldn’t be more excited about the new addition to our family.

jessica-alba-latina-august-2011Alba appears on the cover of the August 2011 issue of Latina magazine. She talks about preparing for her second child, balancing motherhood and her career, and having more kids.

After I had Honor I didn’t leave the house for a while. It was all about changing diapers and feedings and still trying to get back in to the routine of my [acting] thing. I love what I do. But unless it’s worth it, I’m not going to spend time away from my daughter. Before I had her, work was all I had. Now it’s not.

Allure cover

Magazine Cover

1e47fyt053ib74ybAlba appears on the cover of the August 2011 issue of Allure magazine. She talks about how having a kid changed her views on her sexuality.

There’s a reason why certain areas of the body are desirable—because it all leads to reproduction. There’s a science behind it all. It’s not just to sell whatever you’re selling on a billboard or a magazine or a movie.

Elle cover

Magazine Cover

jessica-alba-elle-magazine-december-2010Alba appears on the cover of the December 2010 issue of Elle magazine. She talks about her choice of roles, her personality, and gaining confidence in her craft.

I’d been so afraid of criticism ever since I was young. Every time I’d get a critique or some redirection, I’d always just take it very personally, but now I have no problem with it. It’s just a chance to try things a different way. To play more with a character. It also gives me a chance to have some input, to use my voice.

I’ve bought 70 percent of my house off CraigsList! I’ve found so many things: couches, tables, lamps. I love the idea of recycling furniture and there being a history there.

albaAlba and Warren marry weeks before she is due to give birth. The couple tie the knot at the Beverly Hills Municipal Court by a court staffer.

When I was a little girl, it was all about the princess fairy tale. But life is changing every day, and I’m just going with it.
