Jessica Alba Struggled with Insecurity until Motherhood


Jessica Alba has opened up about her past struggles with insecurity, revealing it wasn’t until she became a mom that she finally felt confident about herself.

The 33-year-old Sin City: A Dame to Kill For beauty seemingly exudes confidence on the big screen, magazine covers and red carpet events, but growing up, Alba admits she constantly felt like she wasn’t good enough.

In an interview on Meredith Vieira’s talk show on Wednesday, Alba confessed her feelings of inadequacy growing up, and said, “My teens and my 20s were particularly (hard). I wasn’t sure of myself. I was always insecure. I always felt like I need to apologize for myself. I was such a people pleaser.

“I was always insecure because I never went to college. I always felt like I wasn’t smart enough.”

Now Alba has managed to find her confidence, largely due to her two young daughters and growing business empire, The Honest Company.

She added, “After I became 30 and a mom of two, I sort of came into myself as a woman. And now I have a company and I feel better now. Especially after 30. Although I’m a little sad I won’t ever be in my 20s again.”
