Last year, Alba made a splash when she talked about fame and how she was afraid to stand up for herself at a young age during an interview with Flaunt magazine.
“I think a lot of the ways I spoke in interviews when I was younger, I didn’t have a lot of self-awareness about how my words are going to be taken and misinterpreted…. I think a lot of my dissatisfaction wasn’t with Hollywood, I think it was me with myself,” she explained.
She continued, “I think I was angry with myself. That I compromised on how I wanted to be treated. I didn’t stand up for myself and I didn’t know how. I only knew how to fight.’
A sensible option: the busy actress had donned sunglasses. She wore platform shoes that were great for walking around The City Of Lights
She said she had an “aggressive mindset” early in her career and said she was probably trying to “defend myself from predators because I was a young woman and knew that people could take advantage of you at any time.”
“It doesn’t even matter that it’s Hollywood, it’s all over society, but with the layer of Hollywood on top of that, it really bred toxic masculinity and toxic behavior.” I think my defense to that was to go for it and be more aggressive so they wouldn’t even try.
“I think that disconnected me from my femininity, and made me feel like I was putting myself in danger, and I think a lot of my interviews reflect that.”
Alba also reminisced about how angry she got when other people shared doubts about her future success.
“I was told early on that everyone thinks you’re going to be handed your a**, and you’re going to fail, and they’re waiting for you to fail,” she said. “I was like, ‘F*ck that! I will not do it!’ I was very intense, but I went into it with a mindset of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

She also said in July that she is going to therapy with both of her daughters.
The actress has daughters Honor, 14, and Haven, 10, and son Hayes, four, with husband Cash Warren and believes family therapy makes her a better parent.
Speaking to Glamor UK, she said: ‘I went with both of them. And around puberty is the time I think, for me, with my girls. Then they kind of started to shut down and really say, “I don’t want to talk anymore.” And I’m like, “We’re not doing this. We’ve got to keep a line of communication here. How can I be a better parent to you? How do you want me to talk to you? Don’t shut up.”
“First of all, this person (the therapist) has studied human behavior and they are good at it. And they don’t have a relationship with you, so they can be really objective and you create a safe space for your child to really candidly tell you what’s not working about your parenting. I was like, “Look, I’m not perfect. I won’t know all the answers, but I want to be a great parent to you. And what you like and don’t like is different from what your sister likes.” and don’t like. And I’m going to make mistakes. Here’s a safe space, you can’t get in trouble – let me know what I’m doing wrong, or what you’d like me to do differently. Or how do you want me to punish you if you mess up? What does that look like for you? And how would you like to be treated so that you still feel that your dignity is intact?”
Angry: She continued, “I think I was angry with myself. That I compromised on how I wanted to be treated. I didn’t stand up for myself and I didn’t know how. I only knew how to fight’
