Jessica Alba on being a mom and her acting career

Jessica Alba explains why she now prefers to play smaller roles in film.

In the December issue of Elle magazine, the 29-year-old actress reveals that she prefers not to be the center of attention in a film.

“I’m shy. I don’t like being the center of attention. But when I do comedy, I lose all inhibition and introspection. I no longer care.”

The star says that since the birth of her daughter Honor in 2008, she prefers not being the main attraction on screen.

She explained that when she returned to work after she gave birth, she realized that the time she spent away from her child has to be worth it.

“The time I’m not spending with my kid has to be worth it, so when I sat down with my agents after I was ready to go back to work, I told them: It’s all about the directors.”

Of course, she admits that her daughter is not the only reason she prefers to have smaller roles on screen, explaining that early in her career she had great difficulty in accepting criticism.

“I’d been so afraid of criticism ever since I was young,” says Alba. “Every time I’d get a critique or some redirection, I’d always just take it very personally, but now I have no problem with it. It’s just a chance to try things a different way.”

Jessica Alba is set to appear in the much-anticipated flick “Little Fockers”.
