Honest Company mogul and actress Jessica Alba is gracing the cover of InStyle magazine’s July issue!
In the issue, Alba kept it real about her “bad parenting” habits. She said, “I have this terrible habit: Whenever my kids ask me to find something, they’re like, ‘Mom, where’s my…’ you know, backpack, toothbrush, whatever. And I just say ‘Up your butt,’ and that’s probably bad parenting.”
Alba, a mom of three, just welcomed a baby boy in late December. Who inspired her to get back into shape? She admitted, “Working out is not easy, but I’m doing it. I’m dropping a name here, but I was with Kate Hudson, and she’s so fit! And I was like, ‘You work out every day?’ And she said, ‘Of course I do.’ I was just like, ‘F**k, man, she doesn’t even question it, so I shouldn’t question it either.’”
Jessica also opened up what drives her to succeed. She explained, “What drove me was that I felt like I wasn’t represented. There were a lot of girls out there who looked like me and weren’t represented in pop culture, you know?… When I started, I was labeled ‘exotic.’ That was it. It was like you had to be mysterious and sexual. Back in the day, if you were Latina, it was always a stereotype.”
