Jessica Alba: 'I Was Completely Insane' As A Child

Jessica Alba flashes a smile as she steps out of her car to make her way to her office on Thursday (March 21) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 31-year-old actress recently talked to Tory Burch about her new book “The Honest Life”, motherhood, and what she was like as a child.

“Crazy. I was completely insane,” Jessica expressed. “I was a precocious little stinker and challenged authority left and right.”

“I grew up in an environment where kids are seen, not heard, and I don’t really do that with my daughters,” Jessica continued. “I bring Honor into our environment, have her travel with us and expose her to a lot of different cultures and experiences. When I was younger, my parents didn’t necessarily do that. I did it on my own by choosing to be an actor at a young age.”

FYI: Jessica is wearing the Elizabeth and James Stela heels.

    is this women ever NOT nauseating?
    her comments always irk me… “I bring Honor into our environment, have her travel with us and expose her to a lot of different cultures and experiences. When I was younger, my parents didn’t necessarily do that. I did it on my own by choosing to be an actor at a young age.” — yaknow what? that’s great but not everyone can afford to travel with children.. and also, there are kids that are exposed to abuse at a young age so if the worst thing her parents ever did was NOT travel then i think she just needs to get her head out of her a*ss

    Although I can’t stand her, but gotta say Alba has got great hair color and amazing stylish street style.

  • Alaia

    @Frame: There is nothing interesting about her style. It’s so trendy, she looks like everybody. She is the walking definition of ‘generic’.

    strange. I remember her telling people that her parents partied a lot and she “rebelled” by becoming really religious and going to Bible study and stuff.

    I completely agree with her. I feel like I grew up the same way and I know I would definitely raise my children to be more exposed to different experiences. You don’t have to be rich, you know. My parents just locked me up in the house and asked me not to bother them. People should take having children seriously, instead of just having kids cuz they see everybody else having them.
