Jessica Alba Covers Self

Jessica Alba, SelfJessica Alba covers the October 2015 issue of Self.

On being busy and running a business: “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.”

On feeling confident: “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.”

On what led to the Honest Company: “I was horrified by the realities around the use of chemicals, and also the link that these chemicals have to a lot of illnesses, from obesity to lung disease to cancer, allergies, eczema — all of it. I was bringing this little person into the world and I thought, I want her to be healthy.”

On getting started: “It was challenging to find products that were accessibly priced and effective. I was like, ‘It’s just gotta be easier for people.’”

On working late nights: “My husband complains about my research. I just go into a hole of Google. He’s like, ‘The light! In the corner of my eye!’ But it’s hard to turn it off.”

On her childhood: “I was on a swim team, and I was chubby and slow and dead last — a full two laps last. I was crying and couldn’t breathe. My mom and dad were like, ‘You started this, you’re going to finish it!’ My parents made me stick to stuff, pick myself up. It’s painful to go through, but I appreciate that tough love.”
