Alba feels like a ‘lone wolf’
Actor 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,” said Alba. However, she insists she has experience about being labelled differently than men 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 hell does that mean?’”
