Jessica Alba has found that out over the past five years. And it’s given the actress and mother of two a new perspective on her acting career. In short, she’s not as daunted as she used to be.
“[Having my kids] was the best time of my life. I love it,” Alba, 31, tells Washingtonian magazine.
“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. I don’t have that filter anymore.”
Alba, who has two young daughters, Honor and Haven, with husband Cash Warren, has a new book out called The Honest Life, which offers tips on creating a healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle for one’s family. But she says Hollywood is still her true home.
“I’m still so passionate about acting and having that as a creative outlet, and it’s a big part of who I am,” she says. “I’ll never stop acting.”
