Jessica Alba on The Honest Company: 'We Change People's Lives'

Jessica Alba takes the cover of Allure magazine’s September 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress and business woman had to share with the mag:

On if people are skeptical of The Honest Company: “I think it’s a double-edged sword. It also makes people skeptical when they see a celebrity attached. Sometimes it makes you interested, but sometimes it could be really bad: Are they just doing it for money? Is this just an endorsement? The products have to be great. Yes, I have a platform because of what I do, and I have access to media in ways that other people don’t, so I can spread the word. [Customers] may be interested because of that and try [the products]. But you can’t convert people because they’re interested. What’s going to convert them is [realizing], ‘Oh, my God, this is amazing.’ I get messages all the time about our products. We change people’s lives.”

On motivation: “A, I’m a hustler. B, I’ve been working since I was, like, 12. I’ve lived all over the world; I’ve worked all over the world with adults and seen all these different dynamics. I’ve been part of a lot of businesses’ marketing strategies, and I see how they utilize someone like me. I love learning. I’m a sponge. I haven’t lost my thirst and desire to learn. Every day is different, and I’m working toward something that I feel really good about. So it’s supergratifying.”

    I literally thought that was Rose Byrne as well. I clicked the page thinking the comments would be pointing out the mistake in print. But that’s actually her and not Rose? She looks completely different in the cover. The second picture looks more like herself but still highly photoshopped.
