Jessica Alba’s line of lifestyle products, The Honest Company, is a pretty big deal to her four-year-old daughter.
“Haven thinks I invented hand sanitizer,” she tells ET Canada’s Rick Campanelli with a laugh. “I’m like, ‘No, I didn’t,’ but you know, she’s four!”
The line, which Alba co-founded, is now available in over 700 stores across Canada and the actress-turned-entrepreneur is thrilled to be expanding her business internationally. “I’ve lived [in Canada] on and off for five years,” she says. “It is a second home to me, so it’s so wonderful.”
Of course, Alba is also one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and she’ll be back on the big screen opposite Jason Statham this summer in the action thriller “Mechanic: Resurrection”.
“I’m a fan of Jason’s so I was stoked to be in a movie with him,” she gushes. “I got to do a little butt-kicking. I’m not just the damsel in distress.”
Indeed she’s not, as Alba works hard to set a good example for her two young daughters.
“It’s cool that [Haven and eight-year-old Honor] can see their mom wear many different hats,” she explains. “They just don’t like it if I miss too many of their school events, which I understand, so I try not to. I missed one Halloween parade and Honor still talks about it.”
