Jessica Alba says she used to be “so fearful of failure and judgment”.
Despite her enormous success as a Hollywood actress, the 32-year-old star reveals she suffered deep insecurities in the past.
And Jessica admits it took a while to find confidence in her imperfections.
“Before, I was so fearful of failure and judgment that I was scared to put myself out there,” she revealed in a cover interview for the March edition of Nylon magazine.
“You don’t have to be a robot, you don’t have to be appropriate all the time. [I] used to be so hard on myself.
“You have to realize that as long as you don’t make a habit of it, tomorrow will be here, and everything will be okay.”
Jessica is mother to two children with her husband Cash Warren and she also runs an eco-friendly household product enterprise called The Honest Company.
Although she enjoys her life as a matriarch and businesswoman, the thespian confesses acting still holds a special place in her heart.
“It’s been liberating to be able to play someone who’s a badass or promiscuous because that’s the opposite of who I am … It’s like a drug,” Jessica explained.
“I don’t have to be a boss; I don’t have to be a wife; I don’t have to be a sister.”
Jessica married Cash in 2008 and the couple are parents to daughters Honor, five, and Haven, two.
The star will next be seen portraying kick-butt character Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which will reach theaters in August.
