Jessica Alba covers the June 2014 issue of Glamour. She's wearing an Isabel Marant tank, Brunello Cucinelli pants and an Azaara earring on the cover. In the interview, Jessica talks about relationships, feminism and her inspiration for founding The Honest Company.
On Her Relationships: "Relationships can be tough, and I was engaged before. I've only had two boyfriends. In the first one, with Michael [Weatherly, star of NCIS], I didn't have a voice yet, and he was so much older. But now [with Cash] there are no more surprises. At around two and a half years, you're kind of like, 'Are we in it? Are we doing this?' And the easiest part? That would be snuggling every night."
On Finding Feminism at a Young Age: "Where I was from, you had to answer to a man if he was the breadwinner. My mom told me that didn't need to be the case for me - I didn't need to rely on a man. She taught me how to hustle. I was determined to be financially independent. So I started making my own money when I was 12 [with acting]. That was freedom."
On Her Inspiration for The Honest Company: "That's what really inspired me to start Honest. I had so many health issues, and come hell or high water, my kids were going to be as healthy as possible. My life was tough as a kid. I was so lonely. And I felt really disconnected from my friends because I spent so much time in the hospital with grown-ups, and felt like a weirdo. It's a strange way to spend your time as a kid. All you want to do is play."
Jessica played "Would You Rather" at the Glamour cover shoot. Jessica skipped some of the questions. She chose heels over Crocs. She would rather fire someone than be fired, although she wasn't happy about it. Take a look:
