I really just need Jessica Alba to stop. Every single interview she gives lately is about how insecure she used to be and how she’s still insecure and how sure, objectively she’s really hot and also filthy rich, she still feels lesser-than sometimes because boo hoo, life is hard.
Jessica stopped by The Meredith Vieira Show on Wednesday to go on and on about the same old shit (via US Weekly):
“My teens and my 20s I just wasn’t sure of myself and I was always kind of insecure and I always felt I needed to apologize for myself,” the brunette told the talk show host. “After I became, first of all, 30 and being a mom of two, I just sort of came into myself as a woman and now I have a company,” Alba said of daughters Honor, 6, and Haven, 3.
The Honest Company co-founder, 33, explained her lack of education also hindered her confidence. “I was always also insecure about not going to college and I always felt I wasn’t smart enough,” she added. “I feel better now especially after 30, it’s crazy what happens.”
I don’t doubt that Jessica Alba sometimes feels insecure. We all do – we’re human beings, and it’s especially hard as a woman, which doesn’t even take into account being a woman in the public eye. However, the way she goes on about it, you’d think she’s persecuted on a daily basis and called fat and ugly and a million other things. She’s just about to be a billionaire and is constantly told how hot she is. Something just doesn’t add up. That’s not to say, of course, that people who are praised for their looks by others have to internalize that or get all their self-esteem from that, but I kinda feel like she just has nothing else to talk about, nothing else that makes her seem interesting, so she resorts to this pity party shit. Sorry, I’m just not feeling it.
