Jessica Alba Admits She's Made People Cry at Work

Jessica Alba Admits She's Made People Cry at Work

Jessica Alba looks chic while attending The Honest Company at Target‘s one-year anniversary event on Wednesday (April 29) in Los Angeles.

Earlier in the day, the 34-year-old actress wore another cute dress while attending the Tiny Prints & Baby2Baby Mother’s Day Party.

Jessica is featured on the cover of More magazine‘s May 2015 issue. Here is what 34-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her management skills: “Sometimes I’m a little more iron fist than velvet glove. I’m straight to the point. I’ve made people cry. I have to say, ‘This isn’t personal. This is what needs to get done, and it’s just as simple as that. And … we’re not crying anymore.’ I’m learning to tone myself down.”

On being a female business leader: “My [business] partners are men. Whenever I say something that’s kind of against their intuition, they go back and talk to their wives. And then their wives usually agree with me. So that’s how we get stuff done over here.”

On owning who she is and not apologizing for who she dreams of being: “If you don’t know those things, you can float. And when you float, someone can come in and push you out of the way. Maybe this is just the first step, but I feel like at least I am in the right place at the right time for me.”

    are they crying because she’s threatening to ‘act’ at them? that’d make ‘em work harder, anything to avoid that punishment

  • Dee

    the thing is, she wants to be a boss bitch. which i can understand. but according to a number of sources shes just a plain bitch boss.

  • mandyz

    All she does is slaps her name to endorse The Honest Company and “her line” has been questioned by critics for their lack of producing 100% organic products. And shut the hell up with the company’s “PR Team” that says the company is worth a billion dollars, no other organic line spews bullshit like The Honest Company. Just be quiet and sit down Jessica, you’re trying too hard sweetie.

  • Danae

    What on earth makes her think that you are a good boss if your employees cry? I can only imagine the lawsuit she would file if some director shouted at her on set of a movie.
    Oh wait.
    She has not been in a decent movie FOR YEARS.

    Yet another wannabe businesswoman, why doesn’t she enroll Harvard in her “spare time” with Blake Lively?

  • frikibabe

    They cry because you are a horrible person!

  • Duke

    online women stay the biggest bitches

  • Kaitlyn

    How disappointing. I really liked her before but the quotes by Alba just make her sound awful.

    “Making people cry”
    - That’s not a “management skill” that’s a personality trait

    “I’ve learned to tone down”
    - So your patting yourself on the back because you no longer make these Regular Un-Famous Nobodies terrified every time their celebrity boss shows up?

    “Their wives usually agree with me”
    - Uh, that means You hired the wrong people.

    If you really feel that these men are incapable of seeing your vision then why not hire their wives instead. You probably won’t have the same success and they probably won’t put up with your “management style” but at least it would stop you from slamming the very people responsible for creating “your” company.

  • Kaitlyn

    You have to feel bad for these poor office workers who go from enjoying a casual normal work day at a regular job to days when Jess comes in and now they’re “Background Extra #5″ for her staged office Instagrams

    She seriously should be nice to these people because if she pisses off the wrong person then you know the first question that will be asked is “So, who’s the real dad of that 2nd kid?”.

  • Parisjok

    I see why her business profits are sky high!!! just went on line and those product prices are for very well off or rich folks. they are so high compared to other same products. what up

  • j.d.

    She is just awful, and I’m not surprised that she’s admitting to making her employees cry. Learn some empathy, and take some acting classes while you’re at it, a@@ jack.

  • Mz.Understood

    I am not sure why the employees are CRYING! Good grief would they CRY if a man was their leader and said the same things? Why is it being a b i t c h when it is a woman and just ‘good tough business sense’ when it is a man?

  • Mz.Understood

    Sounds like she learned from Goop.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Making your employees fear & dislike you isn’t a good way to deal with people.. have a slice of some humble pie & stfu..

  • PlayNice

    I always figured that she’s a major bitch. Her attitude sucks.
