Jessica Alba – entrepreneur, mum, actor and wife – is certainly is a busy woman.

And now she has given a glimpse into her home life by posing on the cover of Parents magazine alongside her fab brood – husband Cash Warren and kids; 10-year-old Honour, seven-year-old Haven and baby Hayes, who turns one on New Years Eve. 

She opened up about returning to her acting roots in the #MeToo movement era in Hollywood. 

She said, ''I'm getting back to acting because it is my first love and is part of my identity. Hollywood’s different now from when I semi-retired 10  years ago.''

She continued, ''there is a new awareness of how important is for women to be paid well and to be represented in front of, but also behind the camera. The #MeToo movement, for all of the heartache and trauma that it has churned up, enlightened people.''

She went on, ''for L.A.’s Finest, I did not even think about what a man would be paid. I said, ‘This is what I am worth.’ Gab and I know our value, and we are lucky to be comfortable enough that we could have walked away if we had to.''

Jessica also spoke about how she juggles motherhood wth her bust working schedule.

She spoke about how she brought one of her kids with her on a business trip to Milan.

She said, ''we went 2 days early so we could have together time. When I had meetings, she would wait for me in another conference room. I cannot be at every school drop-off and pick-up, but I am showing her my time’s valuable and that she has real value to me. I also want her to see my work is important and that I am trying my best to make a difference, and maybe she will absorb it.''

It sounds like her kids are lucky to have a mum like her.

Actress Jessica Alba has been in the Hollywood industry from the age of 12. 

As a young actress, she says she was aware of the culture of sexual harassment. 

Speaking on CNN’s Talk Asia programme, the actress said that when she was starting off, she was resigned to think that 'that’s the way you were going to be treated.'

When asked if she had experienced sexual harassment during her time as an actress, she said: 'Oh yeah, of course I have. Yeah. All the time along the way.'

'I don’t know, I guess you shouldn’t have accepted it, but, as a young actress growing up in the business, you just accepted that that’s the way you were going to be treated,' she continued. 

'You could either go this way or that way with it, and do I think I could’ve gotten some opportunities if I would’ve done this versus that? Sure, but for me, that’s just not something I was comfortable with, frankly … I mean, I’ve been doing this since I was 12.'

When asked about the Me Too movement shedding light on the abusive underbelly of Hollywood, Alba resolutely exclaimed that she was glad it was out in the open now, and that it was about time people spoke out. 

'Imagine, imagine what that’s like,' she said, reflecting on her own experiences. 

'I think things have been imbalanced for way too long and I think it’s about time.'

The 36-year-old has been married to Cash Warren since 2008,  and captioned the snap '@cash_warren and I are officially going to be outnumbered #babyonboard #herewegoagain #blessed.'

Fans were quick to congratulate the star on her news in the comments section of the cute Boomerang video. 

We love this unique pregnancy announcement.

We'd step over our own mothers – sorry, mam – to look like Jessica Alba, so to hear she's not fully content with her appearance comes as a bit of a shock, if we're honest.

The mum-of-two opened up about her body hang-ups while speaking with Allure for their September issue, and it turns out the Sin City would take back her tats if she could.

The 35-year-old actress and businesswoman, who first got inked at 18, admits she regrets taking the plunge.

"You’re never going to be in the same place emotionally and mentally at 18 that you are at 20 or 25 or 30," she explained.

"Something that's meaningful to you when you're younger is not going to be meaningful to you five years later," Jessica elaborated.

Jessica, who rocks flower tats on her neck and a Sanskrit inking on her wrist, admits they're simply not as important as they once were, saying: "I have a few tattoos. I'm not into them now the way that I was."

 

I'm so excited for my @dl1961denim collection to come out this fall #JAxDL #dl1961 #Ad

And while the star can't do much about the tattoos unless she plans a few laser sessions, she has ensured various other mistakes from her past haven't made it into her present.

A massive fake tan fan back in the day, Jessica no longer opts for an artificial glow, saying: "I remember, it was a trend, and we all used to do it. You put the sticker on to see how dark you got."

"I would never do a tanning bed ever now, " she insisted.

Well, that we can get on board with.

Remember that time you won an award and used the moment to throw some serious shade at someone else? Yeah us neither, but that's because we're not Cameron Dallas.

The 21-year-old internet star, who first rose to prominence through Vine, was accepting an accolade at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday when he made a remark which has caused uproar on social media this week.

During a game of Would You Rather, Cameron was asked whether he would prefer to use Justin Timberlake or Jessica Alba's toothbrush to which Cameron replied:" Oh man, I would choose, I would honestly choose Justin Timberlake just because I don't know where Jessica's been."

That's right ladies; he doesn't know where she's been.

Stunned by Cameron's total disregard for the Sin City star, social media users took to Twitter in their droves to call Cameron out on his remarks.

"Did Cameron Dallas just make a ridiculously sexist comment about Jessica Alba?" wrote one while another added: "I'm sorry but I'm still pressed over what Cameron Dallas said about Jessica Alba. That was disgusting and uncalled for. Ugly."

Like any savvy social media star, Cameron went into damage control and quickly took to his own page to clarify his comments, writing: "Yo it was literally a joke, I love @jessicaalba and would share a toothbrush with her till I die lol."

Fans of the star, who is the new face of Calvin Klein's jeans campaign, were all over him following his apology, with many insisting they – unlike the rest of us – knew he was only joking. 

"Everyone takes things so seriously nowadays,I knew it was a joke as soon as you said it!" insisted one while another "Your fans always will be here for you, never forget that!"

Yeah Cameron, never forget that, y'hear?

Jeans can be tricky business. No matter what shop or brand you go to buy them, the sizes will always be different and finding the right length can be a total pain in the ass (take this from a small gal who can NEVER find jeans to fit her properly… ever).

But, when Jessica Alba launched her denim capsule collection with US brand DL1961, we couldn't help but notice that she created different styles based on four women of various shapes and sizes.

“A lot of designers fit for one specific body type, and I’m like, ‘I love that brand, but the pieces are for a completely ­different build than mine.’

"So I did the fittings on four women. What’s special about these jeans is they make a flatter booty look more round, and if you have a voluptuous booty, they hug it in the right way.”

We totally love the direction she's heading in with her collection – celebrating and accentuating the body rather than hiding it away.

"Boobs come and go, but butts are always in," was one of her reasons for designing the collection, which hails your bum as the queen of your body.

"If you don't necessarily have a booty, these jeans will make you look like you have a bigger one," she told Glamour. "Which is nice."

Well, that has us sold.

DL1961 ship to Ireland (YAAAS) but the jeans are a *tad* pricey (BOOO). So, if you want a bum like Jessica's, you might have to splash the cash a little bit.

Joyce Bonelli is the Kardashian/Jenner's go-to make-up artist. She is seen in nearly ALL of their behind-the-scenes Instagram posts and she's also featured in a lot of Kylie Jenner's make-up tutorials. 

So it's not that surprising when other celebrities want Joyce to work her make-up magic on them too.

And one star that wanted a glamover from Joyce was Jessica Alba. As we all know Jessica has her own make-up line, Honest Beauty, and with the help of Ms Bonelli, Jess totally upped her glam game.

In the IG posts, we can see Jessica looking notably more contoured that her usual self and her lips are very a lá Kylie.

Rejection. We all hate it and sometimes fear it.

It can be hard when someone tells you "no", as it feels like all the hard work you put in was for nothing. 

But if you want to succeed, one little word should not get in your way. Just look at these famous and brilliant women, who once upon a time were told "no" also.

Jessica Alba

This year Jessica Alba graced the cover of Forbes for the incredible success of her The Honest Company.

But it wasn't always so easy for the actress. In a recent interview with Forbes, Jessica was asked about the reactions she got while pitching The Honest Company during its first few years.

“It took three and a half years of condescending nods or pats on the back good luck.”

“Instead of the resistance holding me back, it pushed me forward. I almost needed it."

"I needed people telling me ‘no’ for me to figure out exactly what I was going to do and how I was going to do it.”

 

Anna Wintour

It surprised us all to hear that Anna Wintour was originally told “no” by the very industry she runs.

Yes, as a junior fashion editor, Anna was fired from Harper’s Bazaar for being too “edgy.” At a fashion industry conference in New York, she told the audience, “I worked for American Harper’s Bazaar. … They fired me."

"I recommend that you all get fired. It’s a great learning experience.”

 

Chloe Grace Moretz

Chloe is quite open about the prevalence of rejection in Hollywood. The 18-year-old star spoke to The Telegraph about how she handles constant rejection. 

"You go up for hundreds, thousands of roles, and you get told no, no, no so many times. You have to have a tough skin; otherwise you'd get beaten down."

"But I'm not. I love getting told no ’cause then I fight even more."

 

Lady Gaga

Gaga was rejected from her first music label. She signed on with Def Jam Records in 2006 but then dropped three months later.

It was devastating to be dismissed from her dream vocation, but being rejected gave Gaga the time to experiment.

In an interview with E! News, Gaga said, “It was one of the worst days of my life and it happened quite quickly."

"If you give up after something like that, you were never destined to be an entertainer. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger."

 

Mindy Kaling

Not only is Mindy a phenomenal comedienne and actress, but she also writes and runs her own network television show, The Mindy Project.

In an interview with The Guardian, Mindy talked about a “humiliating experience” in which she was forced to audition for a sketch show that she was asked to write.

Yep, Mindy was asked to audition for the part of herself and was then rejected because she was “not considered attractive or funny enough.” Ouch. 

 

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah started her on-air career as the first black female evening news anchor for Nashville CBS. After a few years, Oprah moved to Baltimore to be the evening co-anchor for WJZ-TV.

After only seven and a half months as a co-anchor, she was demoted to a poorly rated daytime show for being “too emotionally involved in the stories. 

Within a year, that tiny show was renamed The Oprah Winfrey Show, and as her success scaled, she reached millions of people every day.

 

J.K. Rowling

Can you imagine life without Harry Potter? Nope,either can we. If J.K. Rowling hadn’t been fired from her job as a secretary, we might have had to suffer that sad reality.

Thankfully, when the HR department told Ms Rowling she was not cut out for secretarial work because she spent all of her working hours writing stories, she went on to write one of the most epic stories of our generation.

And we are so thankful!

Jessica Alba; Alicia Silverstone; Gwyneth Paltrow; Blake Lively: it seems every A-lister has their own 'clean-living,' website. 

No gluten; no dairy; no meat; no sugar – green juices, raw salads, and strange concoctions… it's all part of the current trend for eating extremely healthily.

However, if you're one of the many people who tries to emulate their favourite stars' diets in a bid to look your best, you might want to reconsider: because clean-eating could well be making you ILL.

Indeed, researchers have now come up with a term for it – orthorexia – incidence of which are apparently rising.

As Professor Charlotte Markey, a psychologist at Rutgers University in the US explains: "People start eliminating foods they consider 'impure' or 'bad' – sweets, sugars, carbohydrates.

"Before they know it, they are eating a highly limited diet.

"They think there is room for improvement and that they can always eat 'healthier. They cut out sugar, then salt, then wheat, then dairy, and so on.

"They become obsessed with what they should not be eating and keep whittling down the foods they will allow – which often impacts them socially since food is such a part of our social experiences."

She adds: "What people don't realise is that many of those foods they are restricting, like carbohydrates, which are an important source of energy, really do serve a function."

Here, take the Bratman Test to see if you too are suffering from the negative effects of the condition:

  • Do you spend more than three hours a day thinking about your diet?
  • Do you plan your meals several days ahead?
  • Is the nutritional value of your meal more important than the pleasure of eating it?
  • Has the quality of your life decreased as the quality of your diet has increased?
  • Have you become stricter with yourself lately?
  • Does your self-esteem get a boost from eating healthily?
  • Have you given up foods you used to enjoy in order to eat the 'right' foods
  • Does your diet make it difficult for you to eat out, distancing you from family and friends?
  • Do you feel guilty when you stray from your diet?
  • Do you feel at peace with yourself and in total control when you eat healthily?

Your results:

  • Yes to 4 or 5 of the above questions means it is time to relax more about food.
  • Yes to all of them means a full-blown obsession with eating healthy food.
  • It also important to note that orthorexia nervosa is not seen formal medical condition yet many experts believe that it is a growing concern as society becomes more obsessed with health and diets.

It is surely one of the most amusing stories to emerge from New York Fashion Week.

Yes, in a rush to leave a swish party, Kylie Jenner's 'people' shoved a bemused Jessica Alba aside to make room for the teenage reality TV star and her entourage.

And now the actress has commented on the matter – calling it "really shocking," and confirming that she got "body-checked," by two burly individuals. 

"I was like, 'whoa, whoa! What’s happening?'" Jessica added in conversation with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

"I thought there was like a fire. Like, I was like, 'What's going on?'

"Um, but I guess someone was just leaving the building."

One witness to the incident had previously told Page Six that at Sunday evening's jam-packed Opening Ceremony fashion show, 34-year-old Jessica had "stopped briefly to say hi to someone".

However, Ms Jenner’s bodyguards then arrived from behind Ms Alba and "shoved" her "out of the way".

There has as of yet been no comment from the Kylie Jenner camp on the matter.

We don't know much about how Hollywood stars, A-lister types and all-round famous faces rank each other in terms of seniority. 

But we suspect that being an in-demand actress with a stellar 20-year career (hits include Sin City, Fantastic Four and X-Men) has got to count for quite a bit.

Still, it is now being reported that Kylie Jenner's 'people' thought rather little of a certain Jessica Alba (also incidentally a multi-millionaire entrepreneur) at a recent swish New York Fashion Week event.

In fact, such was their disregard, that one of the reality TV star's bodyguards supposedly shoved Ms Alba aside to make way for the teenager.

At Sunday evening's jam-packed Opening Ceremony fashion show, which Ms Jenner attended with her rapper boyfriend Tyga, guests mingled with the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Alexa Chung, Kelly Osbourne and Rosario Dawson – as well as Ms Alba. 

Page Six reports, however, that following the event's conclusion Kylie and her entourage were keen to leave ASAP.

“After the show, trying to leave the venue, it was very crowded,” said the Page Six source.

“Everyone was in the crush and Jessica had stopped briefly to say hi to someone when all of a sudden from behind came Jenner’s bodyguards.

“They just shoved Jessica out of the way.”

However, rather than throw a diva-fit, in response 34-year-old Jess “just looked astonished!” A second source confirmed that she “didn't freak out” over the incident. 

Despite the presence of plenty of high-profile celebsKylie and Tyga had sent the waiting photographers into a frenzy when they arrived – so perhaps the moment got to them somewhat.

Regardless, a hearty pat on the back to the actress and mother-of-two for retaining her cool – we're sure that Ms Jenner has already sent her flowers and a note of apology.
