Jessica Alba hides her career from her children

JESSICA Alba's children don't know that she's famous.

The 'Machete Kills' star, who has daughters, Honor, six, and Haven, three, with husband Cash Warren, admits they have no idea she's an actress, as they think she only works at her eco-friendly brand, The Honest Company.

Asked about Honor, the 33-year-old beauty told E! News: "She's still trying to understand what I do because it's not like I [tell her].

"She goes to my office at The Honest Company and is like, 'That's mommy's work.' "

The actress is relieved neither of her children appear to be eager to carve out careers in Hollywood.

She said: "Oh gosh, oh no, thank goodness."

But she admitted her eldest daughter has inspired her a lot.

She explained: "My daughter's name is Honor, so her name Honor inspired Honest."

The actress also credits her businessman husband, 35, for helping her to start the brand.

Asked if they work together, she said: "No, but he introduced me to my partners."

Meanwhile, the super slim star insists she doesn't do anything special to stay in shape.

She said: "It's kind of exercise and I think just trying to eat as fresh as possible, not so much processed and packaged food. It's really boring."
