Jessica Alba Talks Selling Baby Photos

Jess recently told CNN that she thinks Beyonce and Jay-Z should sell the first photos of their daughter, Blue Ivy, and donate the proceeds to charity or put the money into a trust fund for Blue.

“For our family, we just wanted to control the experience,” Jess said. “We put the money that the picture made into a bank account for Honor to do whatever she wants to do with. It’s her picture, it’s her birth, and we didn’t want it to be like a weird thing when we were walking out of the house for the first time.”

“If there’s a price tag on your child — which is so bizarre — people will go to crazy lengths,” she added. “We wanted to avoid that hysteria.”

    It’s ridiculous that people are so interested in seeing these celebrity babies. What do you think Beyonces baby is gonna look like? Jesus? It’s gonna look like a regular baby. What’s the big freaking interest??

  • Alaia

    She sounds like a moron trying to justify her famewhoring. Onlly desperate celebrities exploit their children in such a manner.

  • paty

    I will never understand the obsession with celebs babies either, They even have websites dedicated to celeb children, CREEPY! its just going too far. In Europe I read they block out the childs face in tabloids, I wish it were the same in the US. Especially when haters start bashing innocent children, just because of their distaste for the said celeb parent. I actually like when celebs DONT sell their childs photos to tabloids!

  • Jay

    Whether the money’s going towards a good cause or not, I don’t agree that it’s a good idea. :S

  • believe

    You people have to think of the reality of the situation. The paps are all over them and if the pap snaps the first photo. the pap gets the money when they sell them. Why would celebs want these intrusive people to make money off them? I think it makes perfect sense to donate the money to charity like the Jolie-Pitts or put the money in the bank for the child upon emancipation.

  • omd

    @Alaia: i agree. her justification makes her look like an idiot. and now she’s selling baby clothes. who made who the authority on babies anyway?

  • Jennica Panettiere

    Reading about her justifying selling the baby photos makes me cringe.

  • bobbyweiner

    “avoid that hysteria”
    haha this coming from a c-list celebrity, just an excuse to pimp the kids

  • nyob

    Who is she? Did she have a baby?

  • lulu


    Hysteria over a Clisted actress baby pic ???? Is she kidding ?
    Beside we have already seen so much of her pimping those kids for weeks and months. Not new nor fresh anymore . it’s not worth any buck at all. But if your career is on the downhill with no offer coming, selling kids pic even in limited offer still help.

    And who did she think she is ?? comparing herself to Beyonce.
    Someone have to remind her, they are of 2 different level. Mega star ,mega billionaire and C list Alba?

    only desperate fame whores sell their baby pics’s and keep the money for themselves. At least the Jolie-Pitts donated all or some of the money to charity and even Bridget Moynahan, who only got 10% of what Alba got, gave the money to charity. It’s ridiculous that J.Lo, Nicole Richie etc. got millions for their freaking kids…I guess that’s what our society has come to–sad :(

  • samson

    ugh..these holly wood people! So ignorant

    she could have just donated it to charity. cheapos and greedy

    who in the hell wants to see a pic of a child that is not even “nice on the eyes” (Honor)

  • Hayley

    I kind of agree with Jessica. I’m sorry, but… Have you guys SEEN how the paparazzi act around children? Or anyone, for that matter.

    They should do whatever they want.

  • reba

    So… in other words, you still banked on your child’s photo.

  • Dd

    I think more celebs should be like Jolie-Pitt cause they gave the money to charity but with celebrities like Alba they still keep it for themselves—greedy

  • Mary o

    I hate her now, stupid greed mother.

  • nes

    really. Man wit all the dough she earns, I really thought she could spare it to charity.

  • Shawna

    Yes giving to charity is good and how do you know she doesn’t do that out of her own money? What she is saying is that she doesn’t view that money as hers but that it is her child’s money and she set all of it aside for the child when they come of age. How in the world can you view that as wrong???

  • Dee

    Haha oh Jessica! She’s silly cause I’m pretty sure a lot of people don’t give a rats a** about seeing the first pictures of her babies. No offense to the kids cause they’re adorable but she’s always just been meh to me.

  • Didi

    Can you people read? Jessica didn’t keep the money for herself. It’s all for her daughter, HONOR. Which is generous because that kind money will be beneficial in order for dermatologists, beauticians, and plastic surgeons to make her look more prettier. Honor is the ugliest female and will be so jealous of her mom and sister when she gets older.

  • ksk

    why does she hang around in hollywood if she doesn’t want her kids photo taken?? theres no reason to be there.. it’s smelly and sick in that area.. she could drive 5 minutes out and not see one paparazzi hanging arnd.. she knows exactly what shes doing.. and she could also ask a lawyer to get a petition going that’ll stop her kids photos from being taken until they’re 18.. not sure why ppl dont believe that celebrities DO pimp out their kids – i mean look at nicole richie, before she had her baby ppl wanted to punch her, but then she has a kid and all of a sudden she’s golden????? she was giving lauren conrad shi*t for having a failing clothing line – to me that doesnt sound like a girl who has changed her ways.

  • mel

    @Shawna: because her baby shouldn’t be photographed for a magazine at all. There are many stars with babies who you don’t see in paparazzi shots, she’s just not one of them. This keeps her famous for a little while longer.. blagh!

  • Camden

    I mean this whole situation is ridiculous to begin with. It’s sad that press agencies are *willing* to pay the money. In the case of Jessica Alba, had they waited a mth, they would have had every opportunity for a photo, with her , ‘shopping at wholefoods, eating at a cafe, going to the Pumpkin Patch, parking her cards..she’s snapped up doing mundane things everyday…when was the last time she was in a movie??? IF any money is outlayed for intentional baby shots, they should always go to charity….like Honor needs a trust account…her parents are loaded.

  • full

    That picture of Haven about ‘not wanting to eat solids’ sounded pretty fake.

  • no greed

    Actually, why should they incovenience the mom and the baby by putting the lenses on their faces…if the paps are going to make money from the pics…then the celebrity should really be able to get money for their creation…I don’t see anything greedy about that.
