Jessica Alba: I’ll Never Stop Acting

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Casting, Celeb News,

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba will "never stop acting."

Although the 32-year-old actress is branching out into other ventures, such as her lifestyle book The Honest Life, she'll always return to her main creative passion and since becoming a mother to Honor, five, and Haven, three, she's become "fearless" when choosing roles.

"I'm still so passionate about acting and have that as a creative outlet, and it's a big part of who I am; I'll never stop acting. [Having my kids] was the best time of my life. I love it - I feel more fearless as an actress after becoming a mother, which is quite liberating. I'm ready to take on heavier roles, where before I was nitpicky and afraid of so many things."

In 2012, Jessica launched her business The Honest Company - an eco-friendly business which specializes in organically-produced nappies, baby wipes and bath products - and she admits the launch did push her acting aside:

"It's my time, and where I was in my life, this business was a priority and a passion of mine over going to auditions and trying to get roles. I'm still doing movies; I'm about to start another at the end of this month. I don't have that filter anymore. I think as you go into a new, different phase, things do change, and that's influenced who I am and my choices. It happened organically."
