Jessica Alba is the quintessential Supermom–and she fulfills the role with style and grace. The 32-year-old actress recently enjoyed a child-free vacation in Paris, where she not only dished about how much fun she was having getting away from it all, but also shared about her many roles and responsibilities.
Alba will soon return to the big screen as the voice of an extra-terrestrial villain in the animated kids’ movie Escape From Planet Earth. She jokes that she’s excited about doing a film that her kids can actually see.
In addition to her film career, Jessica Alba is CEO of her business, The Honest Company, as well as an advocate for gay rights, global education and female CEOs.
She talked about her company during an interview with the Independent.
“We do detergents, household cleaning products, personal care products, diapers and wipes; all non-toxic and hypo-allergenic,” says the actress who herself suffered from childhood asthma.
“It’s a game-changer in the family product business. I’m the president and founder and it’s grown quicker than we ever imagined. I’m really proud of it. I spend more time at my office now than on the movie set,” she explained. Alba famously embarked on her business enterprise after her eldest daughter, Honor, almost ate her diaper.
Through The Honest Company, Alba is also behind donations to many young mothers in need.

In addition to her role in Escape From Planet Earth, Jessica Alba will also soon appear on screen opposite Pierce Brosnan in the romantic comedy How to Make Love Like an Englishman, as well as in the period drama Dear Eleanor and comedies Stretch and Barely Lethal.
Fans are no doubt most eager to see Alba as she reprises her role as dancer Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. That is sure to be another of those films she won’t allow her children to see.
It’s certainly impressive to watch Jessica Alba balance her family life, her business life, and her incredible film career. It’s high time she writes a book on being a ‘Supermom,’ and shares a few tips for other women so they can at least attempt to do the same.
