Jessica Alba is so passionate about her craft, she will 'never stop acting'. Well that's great; we can't imagine an acting landscape devoid of the heavyweight chops brought to movies such as Honey and Valentine's Day by one Miss Alba. What kind of world would THAT be? As unaffected as this news though we may seem, let's reserve judgement on her acting ability 'til we see what she's like in the forthcoming rom-com opposite Pierce Brosnan, How to Make Love Like an English Gentleman.'
Although the 32-year-old actress is branching out into other ventures, such as her lifestyle book 'The Honest Life', she'll always return to her main creative passion and since becoming a mother to Honor, five, and Haven, three, she's become 'fearless' when choosing roles.
Jessica - who is married to Cash Warren - said: 'I'm still so passionate about acting and have that as a creative outlet, and it's a big part of who I am; I'll never stop acting.'
She added: '[Having my kids] was the best time of my life. I love it- I feel more fearless as an actress after becoming a mother, which is quite liberating. I'm ready to take on heavier roles, where before I was nitpicky and afraid of so many things.'
In 2012, Jessica launched her business ' The Honest Company' - an eco-friendly business which specialises in organically-produced nappies, baby wipes and bath products - and she admits the launch did push her acting aside.
Speaking to Washingtonian magazine, she said: 'It's my time, and where I was in my life, this business was a priority and a passion of mine over going to auditions and trying to get roles. I'm still doing movies; I'm about to start another at the end of this month.
'I don't have that filter anymore. I think as you go into a new, different phase, things do change, and that's influenced who I am and my choices. It happened organically.
