Award winning actress and sex symbol Jessica Alba, whose movie credits include Fantastic Four and Sin City, has made so much money with her business The Honest Company that she is considering leaving acting completely.
Alba has been pouring her energy into her company, which helps educate parents on the harmful chemicals their children are exposed to and may leave the movie business behind.
Jessica told Hello Fashion Monthly her company made $150 million last year and may soon go public on the stock exchange.
It’s tempting to leave acting completely and focus on my company. It’s definitely more fulfilling. And when I put my time into it, I feel like I’m doing something that’s productive and there’s a real outcome. With entertainment, I feel like you’re just throwing stuff against the wall and you don’t know if anyone’s going to see it.
The 33-year-old actress started her company three years ago with Christopher Gavigan, former CEO of Healthy Child Healthy World after giving birth to her two children.
Jessica’s attitude toward fashion and exercise have evolved over the course of her career.
Alba began her career at age 13 with Camp Nowhere and became a household name in 2000 when she starred in James Cameron’s Dark Angel.
She went on to star in a number of blockbusters, including Sin City, Into the Blue and Good Luck Chuck, among others.
Jessica has also been featured in Maxim and FHM, but a picture of her on the cover of Playboy sparked a lawsuit, which she later dropped.
Alba has never appeared fully nude, according to the Inquisitr.
Jessica told WebProNews she’s changed a lot since she began her career and now carries a “who cares what people think attitude.”
“My idea of how I need to look has completely changed. Basically anything before I was 24, I looked crazy, just wrong. There are lots of photos of me out there looking like a hot mess!”
After having her two kids, Honor Marie and Haven Garner, Jessica changed her attitude on exercise and dieting and stopped worrying about losing weight.
Alba used to survive on a diet of steamed vegetables but has since taken a more relaxed attitude toward her food and now keeps to fresh food.
It was this move towards a healthy lifestyle that prompted the launch of her business. The Honest Company sells diapers and baby wash and educates the public about harmful chemicals in their children’s toys.
