Her business was valued just shy of $1billion back in October 2017. 

So it comes as no wonder Jessica Alba feels comfortable calling herself ‘smart.’

The 37-year-old business woman admitted in her April 2019 Health magazine cover story that had questioned her intelligence until her success in the business world.

She was interviewed by fellow entrepreneur Ayesha Curry who asked her what she has been too hard on herself for in the past.

Alba answered: ‘When I was younger, I thought I wasn’t smart. I didn’t have a conventional or higher education. Now, after starting a business, I feel OK with identifying myself as smart.’

She goes on to admit that even she has even struggled in the acting world as she has not had the same education in theater.

‘When I was younger, I thought I wasn’t smart’: She was interviewed by fellow entrepreneur Ayesha Curry who asked her what she has been too hard on herself for in the past.

The Dark Angel star explained: ‘I even felt inferior saying I was an actress without being classically trained. It took me a while to find my confidence.’ 

‘I may not be the best actress ever, but do I have my moments? Definitely. And don’t underestimate street smarts—all of that hustle and life experiences. You have to roll with the punches—that’s how you’re going to be successful in life.’

The Honest Company was founded by Alba in 2011 and will soon be extending to Honest Beauty slated for a release later this year in Western Europe.

Jessica is also known as a Hollywood celebrity who has known how to take care of her body so no doubt many will be surprised that she isn’t a fan of the latest health trend of celery juicing.

‘I hate waking up early’: The A-lister’s definition of wellness is about ‘checking in’ as she says she changes up her routine on a daily basis while holding herself accountable

She said: ‘I tried celery juicing, and it empties your bowels in a very violent way all day long—and I like things that taste good, and that just doesn’t taste good.’

The A-lister’s definition of wellness is about ‘checking in’ as she says she changes up her routine on a daily basis while holding herself accountable.

She said: ‘Some days I just need to go in my room and read a book for an hour and put a face mask on. Other days I need to wake up at 5:15 a.m. and get a spin class in to feel good—even though I hate waking up early. 

‘I’ve tried to get into TM, a type of meditation, but it felt so hard-core. Wellness should feel like something I want to do. If I’m going to do a meditation, I like to do a guided one, and there are apps for that.’

She has been married to 40-year-old film producer Cash Warren since 2008 as they have three kids together: Honor, 10, and Haven, seven, and son Hayes, one.   

Alba says her relationship with Warren is what she is most proud of when it comes to her personal life as she told Ayesha for Health: ‘My husband and I like each other still. [Laughs] I’m not good with conflict. 

‘I didn’t know how to express myself, and I feel like I’ve evolved into this person who can communicate so you can address stuff before it gets out of control. We’re best friends, and we respect each other.’
