Jessica Alba Dishes on The Honest Company's Newest Products and the Diaper Design She Insisted on Using
Jessica Alba isn't slowing down one bit as her eco-friendly baby and household cleaning product company, The Honest Company, enters its sophomore year of operation. The mom of two — Honor, 4, and Haven, 1 — has spent the past few months introducing new products for the company and promoting her bestselling guide to healthy and chic living, The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You. On the final day of her publicity tour, she headed up to Greenwich, CT, to receive the Champion For Children Award from the Mount Sinai Hospital Children's Environmental Health Center.
It was there that Jessica and the company's cofounder, Christopher Gavigan, spilled the beans to POPSUGAR about the next area they'll enter: the health and wellness arena. At the end of the month, Honest will introduce organic toothpaste and organic vitamins (both prenatal and children's versions), two products that grew out of their own children's needs. Jessica explained, "I was given prescription prenatals from my OB, and not only were they crazy expensive, no matter how many samples he gave me, every one of them made me nauseous." Her new vitamins are free of artificial colors, scents, and flavors (they're flavored with real fruits) and kid-tested (and approved).
Here are some more highlights from the conversation.
Jessica on why she focuses on Honest diapers' design: "I think cute-factor is so important when you're looking at the little booger all day long!"
Jessica on how involved she is with the diapers' designs: "I'm really nitpicky. . . . That's where I was like, 'I'm obsessed with Alexander McQueen, he made skulls beautiful, we have to put skulls on a diaper.' And my partners were like, 'You're crazy; nobody's going to buy that!' And I'm like, 'Are you kidding me? Just try it!' It ended up being like our No. 1 diaper!"
Jessica on her favorite diaper design: "I'm really into the strawberries right now. I always loved Strawberry Shortcake, and [Haven's] a little ginger, so the strawberries look really cute on her."
Wiz Khalifa teamed up with 2 Chainz for a track on the Fast & Furious 6 soundtrack, and we caught up with him at the LA premiere of the film on Wednesday night. Wiz walked the red carpet with his wife, Amer Rose, both of whom are big fans of the Fast & Furious series — and fast cars in general.
Michelle Rodriguez's character may have gotten killed off the Fast & Furious series, but she's back from the dead in Fast & Furious 6. At the film's LA premiere Tuesday night, Michelle talked about what it meant to have fans rally for her character and why she thinks it's so important to see kick-ass female characters on the big screen.
Fast & Furious 6 premiered in LA last night, and on the red carpet we caught up with the stunning Elsa Pataky. We chatted with the actress, who is married to Chris Hemsworth, about Paul Walker's dreamy eyes, Vin Diesel's secret soft side, and what it was like working in the supersuccessful action franchise. Elsa also says that while the movie may be all about the flashy driving scenes, there are romantic undertones there for the ladies. Check it out and watch for more on POPSUGAR Live!

At 14, Jaden Smith has already made two feature films with his father, Will Smith, and recently I sat down with the young actor to discuss their latest, After Earth. Jaden dished on his favorite part about working with his dad — "he's like a big, black Yoda" — and the actress he'd love to work with. Take a look before the movie hits theaters on May 31!
Far East Movement caused a full-on dance party in our Los Angeles studio when they stopped by to perform their latest single. We also got to ask them what they learned when they were working with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.
Will and Jaden Smith team up in the futuristic sci-fi film After Earth, and we recently got the chance to talk shop with Smith Sr. The self-proclaimed "gregarious" star told me about the challenges of playing a seriously injured character for nearly an entire movie, being an onscreen father (again!) to his real-life son, and why he almost had to learn Chinese for the role. Take a look before the film comes out on May 31!
