Jessica Alba feels like ‘lone wolf’ as CEO of lifestyle brand ‘The Honest Company’

b7efc784fa0543f34a757ae77b258b56 03e234459cb2c07eb3223f58bf27c12cActress Jessica Alba feels like a “lone wolf” as the CEO of lifestyle brand The Honest Company as there are not many female CEOs around.

The 34-year-old says she found it hard at first to be among only a small number of female CEOs, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“You feel like a lone wolf surrounded by men who have done it all before,” Alba told Net-A-Porter’s The EDIT magazine.

However, Alba insists she has experience about being labelled differently than men brought over from her time in the film industry.

She explained: “I’ve actually felt this more in the entertainment industry. People never say a male actor is difficult, they call him smart, but if a woman did the same thing, she would be considered a b***h.

“I find it funny when I get called ambitious! I’ve even had my agents do intros and say, ‘She’s a very ambitious young lady’. And I’m always like, ‘What the f**k does that mean?'”
