Collider.com interviews Jessica Alba discussing Sin City 2 and more

Collider.com sat down with Jessica Alba recently during the Escape from Planet Earth press junket to discuss the 3D flick, A.C.O.D., and more importantly Sin City 2!. CLICK HERE to read the full interview.

Sin City 2 is one of these projects that everyone talked about for years, that honestly I just lost faith that it was going to happen and then all of the sudden it did.

Alba: Out of nowhere right?

Out of nowhere and he has everybody in Hollywood in the movie, like everyone.  Talk a little bit about when you first heard that it was coming back and that you were going to be a part of it.

Alba: I think like you every six months to a year it was like “We’re going to do it, when’s the next one coming?  Oh yeah, we’re going to do it.  We’re going to do it.  We’re going to do it.” And then at a certain point it was just like OK, I just didn’t believe it.  It was like “We’re going to start in the summer, we’re going to start in the fall” but then when we actually got the start date and I was there on the set it was like a dream.  I was like, “Am I really here?  Are we really here?  OK, just making sure.” And Jamie [Chung] filmed the day before me and I was like “Are we really doing this?” So yeah, it was surreal and I ran into Rosario [Dawson] and for all of us it’s really cool.  I got to work with Bruce [Willis] and with Mickey [Rourke] and it’s probably one of the best times of my life working on the second.  The first was like open the doors and this has been, certainly as an artist, the best experience.

What’s interesting is that everyone I’ve spoken to that’s been working on it has been telling me that its literally all green screen, that everyone is filming their stuff and then he’s going to put it all together in post.

Alba: That’s how the first on was.

It seems even more extreme on this one, but maybe I’m not hearing it right.

Alba: It’s exactly the same as the first one.  I got to work with Mickey this time, which I didn’t work with him the first time, even though we were in scenes together, I did my scenes with Robert, so that was nice, to be able to work with Mickey because I’ve always been a huge fan of his.

Talk a little bit about what the process is like working for Robert when you’re on green screen like that.  How much is he showing you the pre-vis or the art work to show you what it’s going to look like or is it a lot of imagination going on?

Alba: Well this is- mine is an original story so there wasn’t a lot to base it off of, but Frank [Miller] has been drawing.  So it’s just crazy.  It was neat to see their process, Robert and Frank’s, and their collaboration and what they inspire from each other and get out of each other and what they’re creating.  It’s really like the 2.0 version of Sin City and it’s pretty amazing.

I’m going to run out of time with so I do want to ask you what you are thinking about for the rest of the year in terms of roles.  Obviously we could talk about Machete Kills, or Machete Kills Again in Space, but I am curious what you’re thinking about for the future is there a certain role that you’re looking after or going for?  What’s percolating?

Alba: A couple of things.  I’m about to go on a book tour, I just wrote a book and its coming out in march so that’s the next thing that I’m thinking about and I have a company that I started about a year ago, so my company, you know, every day I’m the president.  So that’s exciting and that’s something so completely different from what goes on in entertainment.  I’m looking to do some completely different things more as a producer and creator as some things that I have percolating.  We’ll see.  I’m really looking forward to Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For to come out.  It’s going to be rad.

Jessica Alba Lined Up to Star in ‘Weightless’

Myriad Pictures is preselling the movie, which is written by Milo Addica and will mark the Oscar-nominated scribe’s big-screen directorial debut.

BERLIN — Jessica Alba is in final negotiations to star in Weightless, an original screenplay from Oscar-nominated writer Milo Addica (Monster’s Ball) that will mark the scribe’s first outing in the director’s chair.

Myriad Pictures is shopping presales to buyers on the project, which will see Alba play the lead role.

Set in the near future, the movie details the story of a female astronaut (Alba) who winds up in a complicated love affair with the brother of a woman who died in a motorcycle accident she caused but didn’t tell anyone about for fear of jeopardizing her place on a space flight.

Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico will produce with Steve Norris, alongside the U.K.’s Apollo Productions and its partners, Pinewood Studios and VFX powerhouse Double Negative.

Addica is repped by Oren Segal of MPE (Management Production Entertainment), Joanne Wiles and Kevin Crotty of ICM Partners and attorney Karl Austen. – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Hopefully everything will fall into place.

Jessica Alba covers Instyle magazine’s February 2013 issue!

Jessica Alba is InStyle’s February cover girl! In this issue, the 31-year-old actress talks about the many new skills she’s added to her resume over the years: mother, wife, organic baby food expert, and author among them. A year ago, she launched Honest Company with environmental specialist Christopher Gavigan, in the hopes of educating people on the benefits of healthy, organic products for children. “Creating this company was something I had to do,” Alba tells InStyle of the venture, which has already attracted $27 million from investors. “We’re completely transparent. All the goods we make are high-performance—and safe—but they’re also beautifully designed, so people will be drawn to them, too.” In March, Alba puts pen to paper in her first book, The Honest Life, a how-to handbook she co-wrote with Gavigan on filling your home with eco-friendly and safe products. Her role as activist started as her family grew: She has two children—Honor, 4, and Haven, 1—with producer husband Cash Warren, the love of her life. “I just knew when I met him that I was going to know him forever,” says Alba. “It was weird; he instantly felt like family. It was so easy. I’d never felt like that with anyone. I was usually pretty self-conscious, minding my p’s and q’s, very aware of every time my fork hit the plate when I was having dinner on a date. With him, there was none of that. We got each other. We’re kindred spirits.” For more of our exclusive interview, flip to page 194 of the February issue—or download it on your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet—on newsstands Friday, January 11.

Jessica Alba interview about The Honest Company

Jessica Alba tells us about The Honest Company’s latest offerings and exclusive sale

It’s been 10 months since Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan launched The Honest Company, an eco-friendly and toxin-free baby products and household items company. If anyone thinks that the actress is just the face of the company who only shows up to draw attention to the products and then goes back to her Hollywood life, they’d be sorely mistaken. The company is truly the brainchild of the mom of two — to Honor, 4, and Haven, 1 — and she takes personal pride in its success.

The company will launch its newest styles — purple leopard and green-and-gray lumberjack patterned diapers — and latest product — a trio of lip balms for mom — on GiltKids.com tomorrow afternoon as part of the company’s first sale on the site. We joined Gilt Groupe, Jessica, and Christopher at Honest’s offices to discuss the brand, the new products, and what moms really want in their products. And come back tomorrow for the rest of our conversation about Jessica’s seamless transition from actress to businesswoman, and the products her kids like best.

Moderator: So we were talking a little bit about the partnership with Gilt; what made you want to partner with them? How did that come about?
Jessica Alba:
I just think it’s a great site. I love a good deal myself as a mom, and I love that they have a curation of the best in class. So because we’re the best in class, and it’s also a very stylish site, I just thought it would be the perfect place to have an exclusive partnership and launch our most fashionable two designs.

Moderator: And how did you decide to step out with these particular new products? What was the reasoning behind that?
JA:
We have tons and tons of designs and they fall into the category of traditional, sort of whimsical, and kind of edgy. I feel like parents have kind of fallen into a couple of those categories, if not all three. I know I do, and so depending on what kind of mom you are, you’re obviously going to be attracted to the different designs. So we had about 10 per category, and we went out to parents and they pulled their favorites and then everyone here at the office. That’s how we end up with our designs — people choosing it.

Moderator: So the things that Gilt’s launching, are they an extension of items you already have?
JA:
So we already have these, and these are our boy options, and these are our girl options, and so what I was saying is this is the edgy girl option; this is the whimsical and this is the more traditional. For whatever reason, the sweets and the skulls are the ones that everyone talks about, so when our moms post on our Facebook, or whenever anyone takes a photo of their babies in our diapers, they love showing them in our edgiest designs, so we felt that would be the best to launch with Gilt Groupe. We have the highest absorbency than any other diaper on the market, conventional or eco, and then we have obviously the edgiest and coolest designs. And no other company allows you to pick and choose. If you’re part of our monthly delivery program you get to pick and choose what designs you want, so you’re like, “Oh, I really love lumberjack, but I also love the skulls and I love the anchors,” and so you can get all of that in your monthly package if you want.

Moderator: So is that kind of what you do at home? You switch it up, too? You don’t always do the cutesy.
JA:
Oh, I do everything. Yeah, sometimes she wears a little black dress and then the little skulls are cute. And then, sometimes she wears a nautical look and she’ll wear the anchors. I put a lot of . . . I put the boy diapers on her and the girl diapers.

Moderator: And so is the lip balm a new category for you guys?
JA:
That’s a new category completely and that’s more in the personal care. You essentially eat whatever is on your lips, you ingest it, and it goes into your bloodstream and your system. If you’re kissing your baby, you don’t have to worry about any sort of parabens, no lead; it’s completely natural — your baby won’t get a rash. We did this [in] three different flavors, so we did more of a kind of soft minty one, a completely neutral one, and a little bit more of a creamsicle one.

Moderator: So do you get a lot of your ideas from what moms are asking?
JA:
Oh yeah, for sure. That’s how we knew what to even launch with initially. We wanted to cover the basic needs, so it’s what are you putting on your kid, what are you bathing your kid with, and what are you cleaning your house with. We’re expanding with the cleaning-your-house option because we know there are other needs, like tile cleaners and floor cleaners and toilet cleaners, things like that, the basic stuff, we covered with our launch, and now we’re going into expanding it because parents want it.

Moderator: We love eco-friendly products and it’s really hard to find them that tie very stylish designs with sustainability and eco-friendly organic materials, and at a reasonable price.
JA:
I was . . . obviously looking for the best in class and ingredients, and then when you find that it’s like a picture of a lady in a headdress and she’s making it in her backyard, which is fine, or it has twigs on it. I think all of that is fine, but that’s not me. I grew up with MTV, and tattoos, and rock and roll, and hip-hop. I feel like we’re the moms now and there aren’t any companies that are really made for us, and we’re the ones that are having families. The companies that we grew up with are just so out of touch, so we try to be somewhat cool.
