ET caught up with Jessica Alba’s brother Joshua, getting him to spill details on what it’s like to grow up with a famous sibling.
As Joshua tells it, wherever Jessica’s acting career led her, he had to tag along.
“It was fun for me,” said Joshua, 31, who explained that being exposed to the entertainment industry helped him come out of his shell. “I got to meet a lot of people and do a lot of things.”
Jessica began her career in the mid ’90s on projects such as Camp Nowhere, The Secret World of Alex Mack and Flipper. Joshua’s first role came in 2001 on Jessica’s show, Dark Angel.
“She was gracious enough to let me do it with her,” said Joshua, who was fresh out of high school when he scored the role.
Joshua made it clear that his No. 1 priority is his family, which could account for why Jessica’s sudden fame felt strange to him at first.
“To me, she’s just my sister — someone I used to fight with all the time, you know?” said Joshua.
One of those fights came after a scary car accident when Joshua was just 15. Despite the lack of a driver’s license, Joshua found himself drag racing in his parents’ old car. In the middle of the race, Joshua lost control and left the car nearly totaled. Fortunately, Joshua escaped the accident unharmed, but he knew he wasn’t out of the woods yet. He still had to face his mom and dad.
“The first person I called was my sister,” said Joshua, who pleaded with Jessica not to tell their parents. “She came to get me and she was furious.”

Joshua continues to act when he can — most recently appearing on CSI and the upcoming independent movie, Synapse. – ETonline
Jessica Alba stopped by the Ellen Show on Monday (February 10th, 2014) where she chatted about her husband Cash Warren‘s birthday and more. Check out the clips below.
Jessica Alba and Christopher Gavigan posed for pictures while celebrating the Honest Company’s 2nd Birthday at the main offices on Thursday (January 30) in Santa Monica
Jessica is wearing an Andrew Gn shirt, Marios Schwab skirt, Christian Louboutin shoes, Rodo bag, Jack Vartanian earrings, Velvet by Graham & Spencer bracelet, and Graziela and Dana Rebecca Designs rings.
Jessica talks to Jimmy about her decision to start The Honest Company and some of the products they make, including a four-way crib.
Jessica stopped by the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show last night (January 20, 2014) to promote The Spoils of Babylon. She also discussed The Honest Company, Cash’s birthday party and more…
She may not be away from the camera forever, but actress Jessica Alba is busy these days with her second job selling baby wipes, stain remover and aromatic soy candles.
The Honest Co., which the “Fantastic Four” star co-founded with CEO Brian Lee in 2012, is now raising $25 million to develop new product lines and expand into brick-and-mortar stores.
Alba told “Street Signs” she started the company because she wanted to sell “the safest, healthiest products available” and wanted them “to be affordable and beautiful.”
The Honest Co. offers a $400 crib, for example, that is made with sustainable wood and nontoxic paint, and that can be configured four ways. It is also a “one-for-one” offer—meaning the company will donate a crib for every one purchased.
Lee said the expansion includes moving from an online-only model to physical locations, because 90 percent of U.S. consumers do their shopping in stores.
Apart from the company, Alba keeps her money in securities and real estate.
“I am pretty safe and conservative, so I don’t have a lot of risky investments,” she said.
The site content (including the video archive) is coming along nicely, and we hope to finish that in the upcoming months.
Jessica Alba and friend/Make-up artist Lauren Anderson are featured in The Hollywood Reporter‘s Beauty Issue, which looks back at the top 25 beauty moments of the past year.
“We met at her 14th birthday party,” says Alba. “It was a ’70s-themed party; everyone had to dress up.” Adds Andersen: “I wardrobed all of our friends.” Alba: “It was amazing, she really went for it, and that’s when I knew, ‘Yeah, that’s my dog right there.’ ”
WHY IT MATTERS: An unexpected beauty move delivered the best look of the night and made coral-orange lips the “it” color.
MUST-HAVE PRODUCT: Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick
The inspiration for Alba’s bold lip was her strapless melon-hued Oscar de la Renta mermaid gown. Much like the dress, the makeup needed to be “classic with a touch of something unexpected,” says Avon Global Celebrity makeup artist Lauren Andersen.
For a “warm and glowy” complexion, Andersen used tinted moisturizer, a light dusting of rose pink Hourglass blush and a soft neutral eye palette of espresso liner and sand shadow. “With the rest of the face soft and pretty, her lips were ready to take on all of the focus,” says Andersen, who painted Alba’s pout vibrant orange with Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Riviera, a long-wearing matte lipstick.
Her Globes moment ignited the year’s citrus-hued lipstick frenzy on the red carpet (worn by Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez and Bella Thorne) and on the spring 2014 runways (spotted at Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, DKNY). Says Andersen: “It’s fun to be experimental with beauty, and a bold lip is an easy way to play.” Speaking of playing, Alba and Andersen have known each other since their early teens, when they staged photo shoots from Caboodles kits full of makeup. Says Alba, 32, “We would go to the mall [where] every color eye shadow was glittery. It was like a budget version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Glitter everywhere! [Working with Andersen] feels like that, just fun.”
Jessica Alba has made an apperance on IFC’s Comedy Bang Bang! with internationally renowned vocal artist/ beatboxer/ musician/ comedian Reggie Watts. Check out the clip above.
Jessica was recently interviewed on the new web-series Acting Disruptive by host Max Lugavere to chat about her baby products company. The new series includes a chat with “notable stars and goes behind the scenes of each business, giving fans an all-access look into these innovative companies and the famous faces behind them.” – JJ
