Speaking to BBC Breakfast recently, she said: ‘You know what, I had a lot of funny stories from over the years that I wanted to use.

'But it is easier to have that mask and play a character… I can do more with it then, I can elaborate on personal experiences.

'There's definitely a lot of me in it, the emotional side of it, it's quite touching, as much as it's funny.

A casual Jessica Alba gives adorable daughter Haven a piggyback ride during a family trip to the Malibu Chili Cook-Off


But even Jessica Alba needs a day off from the glitz and the glamour.

And on Monday, the 33-year-old actress was spotted in not one, but two casual ensembles, as she headed out in Malibu, California.

The Sin City actress started her day with a solo stop at the local Farmers Market before heading to the Malibu Chili Cook-Off.

At the culinary affair, the brunette beauty looked grunge chic in a loose white-and-grey striped blouse with buttons down the front and skinny distressed denim jeans that cut off at her ankles.

The mother-of-two had a plaid blue blouse wrapped around her waist and sported printed slip-on shoes.

Adding to her laid back look, Jessica’s hair was parted to the side and flowing down in loose waves, as her eyes were concealed with tortoise shell sunglasses.

Proving to be a hands-on mum, the star was seein carrying her adorable daughter Haven, three, on her back.

Haven had a pretty purple bow in her hair, matcing her unicorn stuffed animal, as she was clad in a feminine white blouse, denim shorts and orange sandals.

Joining the pair was Jessica’s husband Cash Warren, 35, and other daughter Haven, six.

Prior to their family fun, Jessica was spotted in a different ensemble, as she made her way to the Malibu Farmers Market.

The Honest Company founder looked comfortable in perhaps the same striped top, different light blue boyfriend jeans, a grey sweater, and other patterned sneakers.

The Fantastic Four star accessorised the look with a pair of gold-rimmed aviator shades, stud earrings, and an Afghan-styled bag.

Jessica once again wore her light locks down flowing over her shoulders and had natural, complementary make-up highlighted by a swipe of pink lipstick.

She made sure to keep hydrated on the warm day as she picked up a carton of coconut water at the market.

It was recently announced that Jessica’s eco-friendly children’s venture, The Honest Company, has made a whopping $1 billion since its founding in 2012.

And according to the Wall Street Journal, the stylish entrepreneur will soon be expanding overseas to China.

'I can't say when that will be, but we are definitely starting to think and act like a public company,' Honest Chief Executive Brian Lee said.

Uma Thurman stuns in a burgundy pleated dress with Chopard diamonds at Venice Film Festival

Uma Thurman made a stunning arrival at Venice International Film Festival on Sunday night.

The Hollywood star looked glamorous in a sheer burgundy pleated dress from Jenny Packham’s SS14 Collection, finished off with a glittering Chopard necklace.

Of course she would be wearing diamonds from the famous jewellers, as they were hosting the event with Vanity Fair for which Uma was the guest of honour.

The Kill Bill star had arrived for the Backstage At Cinecitta Exhibition, a show which relives the magical style and fashion of the films made at the Italian studio.

From La Dolce Vita, Ben Hur, War and Peace, Cleopatra or The Leopard and around stars like Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, Alain Delon, Sophia Loren, Charlton Heston or Audrey Hepburn, the twenty-eight shots of the exhibition ‘Backstage’ embody the quintessence of the fifties and sixties in Rome during the golden era of Cinecittà.

Uma also wore a diamond bracelet on her wrist, as well as a silver ring on her engagement finger.

The actress matched her manicure to her dress and pulled her blonde locks back into a chic pony-tail.

She’s been supporting ex-husband Ethan Hawke while he promotes his latest film at the 71st annual Venice Film Festival, but Uma swapped the spotlight for a day with the family on Friday.

The 44-year-old actress was joined by children Maya, Levon and Rosaline - nickname Luna - for a picturesque boat ride through the ancient city’s famous waterways.

Also in attendance was Game Of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, with British photographer Rankin.

Other guests included Maria Grazia Cucinotta and Douglas Kirkland, Lana Holloway and Joanna Mazur and Warly Tomei Mantegazza.

Rita Ora narrowly misses Kim Kardashian as they arrive at LAX after reality star ‘refused to sit next to her at the VMAs

It was rumoured that Kim Kardashian refused to sit next to Rita Ora at the VMAs last Sunday, because she blames the pop star for messing with her brother Rob’s head after the two dated in 2012. 

And the two women narrowly missed each other as they both arrived for flights out of LAX at the same time on Monday. 

Rita, 23, was likely headed off to London, where she will be performing at the Adidas Originals London flagship store on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Kim, 33, who was accompanied by Kanye and 14-month-old baby North, may have also been heading to London, but Kanye will soon be jetting off Down Under.

The 37-year-old hip hop artist will take to the stage in Perth, Australia on Friday as a part of his Yeezus tour. 

Rita was travelling in comfort, wearing a see-through white tank top through which her black bra was visible, teamed with grey Adidas sweatpants and colourful Adidas sneakers.

The I Will Never Let You Down hitmaker has designed a glamorous collection for Adidas Originals.

Kim donned a blue and white striped button-up teamed with ripped white jeans and strappy brown sandals. 

It was claimed that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star gave her brother’s former flame the cold shoulder at the VMAs last Sunday.

According to TMZ, the reality star was not too happy that she was seated just a couple of places from Rita.

The site wrote: ‘Not wanting any drama, she asked producers to find her a different seat. We’re told she wasn’t a diva, she just didn’t want to have to be social with Rita.

'VMA producers had to scramble, but ultimately they found a seat for Kim… with Kendall and Kylie.'

It comes as little surprise that there might be a little frostiness between the pair. 

In a recent interview with Andy Cohen on his show, Watch What Happens Live, Kim revealed she would pick Rob’s ex Adrienne Bailon over Rita to be her sister-in-law.

She told the host: ‘I would say Adrienne Bailon cause she was in our lives for a long time and I know she’s a really sweet girl and she has good intentions and she has a good heart.’

Meanwhile, Rita has made it clear that the past is in the past. 

She told Power 105.1 radio’s show The Breakfast Club: ‘I don’t want to talk about this too much because people move onwards and upwards, and it was a phase. 

'And it was a moment in my life and now it's like onwards and upwards.'

A spokesperson for Kim told MailOnline: ‘Kim didn’t change seats - she sat in her assigned seat. The tickets were issued days prior.

Coco Austin ditches G-string bikini for patterned blue leggings (and plunging top) as she jets home from Barbados with husband Ice-t

She has recently been showing off her infamous curvaceous figure on the white sandy beaches in the Caribbean.

But even for Coco Austin, all good things must come to an end.

The 35-year-old television personality was seen alongside her husband Ice-T, 56, as the two were getting ready to jet out of Grantley Adams International Airport, ending their Barbados holiday on Monday.

In a departure from her usual revealing ensembles, Coco was dressed comfortably for the flight home, sporting a black top, patterned blue leggings and a pair of black patent leather heels.

The star of Ice Loves Coco accessorised the look with a pair of designer sunglasses, hoop earrings, watch, and a chain necklace featuring a heart-shaped pendant.

She had her signature blonde locks in a ponytail and had complementary make-up on her face highlighted by a swipe of pink lipstick.

Ice-T was dressed perfectly for the flight home from the Caribbean as he wore a white fedora and Versace shades.

He completed the look with a Polo Ralph Lauren top, black trousers, and clean white leather sneakers while rolling his luggage along.

No doubt the couple of 13 years had enjoyed the holiday in Barbados together as Coco was spotted squatting down low at Sandy Lane Beach to snap a selfie on Sunday.

The curvy blonde put on an eye-popping display as she showed off her famous assets in a leopard print bikini as she and her husband enjoyed a day of fun in the sun.

Ice-T even lovingly applied sunscreen on his ladylove’s back as she laid out on a beach chair.

The vacation seemed to come at a good time for the New Jack Hustler rapper with news that he is set to continue his role as Odafin ‘Fin’ Tutuola in the long-running crime series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which has been renewed for a sixteenth series.

The couple ended their reality TV series, Ice Loves Coco, this year but they plan on launching a new programme within a talk show genre.
