READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Coming up this evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," American television and film actress Jessica Alba joins the program for an entertaining and candid face-to-face interview.
The star us such movies as "Sin City," "Honey," and "Good Luck Chuck," Alba credits her parents for her tenacious drive:
"They always instilled an incredible sense of, like, a go-get-'em, go-for-it, anything is possible, kind of attitude. And giving 200 percent was mandatory," Alba tells Piers Morgan. "And you always finish everything that you start."
The mother of two young girls, Alba says she would support her daughters if they were to pursue careers in Hollywood, but cautions against the perils of the craft:
"I think if you can imagine yourself doing anything else, you should be doing anything else, because like you said, it's tough. It's tough on your spirit. It's physically tough," reveals Invisible Woman from the "Fantastic Four" film franchise. "The days are very long...People only see the glamorous side of it, which is actually like one percent."
Watch the clip, and tune in this evening at 9 p.m., as the annual member of Maxim magazine's "Hot 100" list opens up about motherhood, and her passionate pursuit of healthy baby products.

I hope she's a better Mother than she is an actress. She stinks at acting.
And what is it that you do for a living tough guy? Are you in Hollywood?
Don't need to live in hollywood to know her acting ain't the best.
What a horrible actress.
Well if it's so tough there's like a million other people ready and willing to take her job.
so tell me y there's only one alba? not a million?? its tough enough that not everybody can get the job or become an actress.
I wish Jessica Alba was my Mom.
I would still be breast feeding.
Oh please, you make millions for being a meh kind of actress. You should be thanking god you're hot and rich.
Hollywood is tough when your only talent is looking pretty.
You ask her what she thinks is happening in America her view of what is going on. Jessica's opinion on economics and the state of America is sad to watch. She is focused on herself, how she looks and her image. She hasn't a clue as to what people are going through because she never had to go through it. She will make more money for her next film than most people will earn in a lifetime. You should ask the questions relevant to your guest's talent or intellect. In Jessica's case ask her who she is wearing and how much does she spend on her yearly supply of hair products and makeup. Of course she is the prototypical Hollywood liberal. I can't wait to hear how she is going to save the world. It is wonderful to know that she can get easy access to our politicians to discuss whatever issue she cares to indulge in at the time whereas the rest of us just get ignored. Thank god Jessica is looking out for us I don’t know what I and the rest of the great unwashed would do if that wasn’t so.
She started her own company offering truly safe, chemical free products for infants and young children, thats more than most people do in their lifetime. Just because she's good looking and a decent actress doesn't mean she doesn't have vaild opinons of her own. An actor, actress, musician or any other profession is just that, a profession...it doesn't 100% define a person. By pigeonholing people into certain categories, we fail to see the broader scope of a person's potential to the world.
True, but lets go easy on the "started her own company" stuff ok? I'm sick of people acting like these hollywood types are the same as people starting a company and building it from the ground up. She's lent her name to a business, and told others to run it and has input when she wants. It's like calling Snooki an 'author' when she's nothing but a person who told someone else to write a book for her.
The show and the interviewee sucked hard!!!!
Who cares what an uneducated, slept with some guy to get on screen says or thinks? How does she walk and breath at the same time??????
Wow! Such hostility on Jessica comments – I watched the interview with Piers Morgan and found it interesting, but since I've never followed her or her movies, cannot nor would not comment on her acting ability.
Anyone who looks like Alba doesn't need to give 200% to anything she does to get what she wants. She was blessed with great beauty and physique. Now I'd give much more credit to a average looking gal who reached her status.
I've been on movie sets... Give me a break, it's "long hard days" of sitting around and fighting bordem until you are ready to shoot a scene. And then fighting boredom because you have to do it 100 times in a row.
lucky she got that pretty face. but that body, u gotta admit it. she works hard for it, 3 hours a day, five days a week. thats something.
I guess I never be amazed. Many of you people are just STUPID! You comments are Stupid and your perspectives are Stupid. Oh well, everybody has an opinion even if they don't have an a#$hole. Don't take the BS so seriously and get a life.
After reading all of these comments, I have to wonder why anyone would want to be an actor.
I got my Twitter account 3 days after Jess?? From what's been popping up on my feed is Yep – She is the Real Deal and down to Earth Gal.
Don't know what's up everyone's rump with these posts. Jessica has done well for herself and has stayed out of trouble. Not everyone can win the Superbowl and not everyone can win an Oscar. What you contribute to society means a lot more. There are MANY great actors/actresses who are TERRIBLE people in real life. So there. But I commend her for stepping out of her element creating non-toxic and eco-friendly baby products called Honest.
aahah,.. your reach the corner of the circular band yet? Break a leg!
I will "protect" my children as well,. as they will protect me.
The toronto police department are doing an excellent job! BTW it's called university.
You really have reached that legendary "brick wall" of continuing defeat. Prepare to keep losing, and don't end up dead in my pet semtary, my commodore user. Your failure is a joke to the police
being part of a gang that torchers little kids with soundwaves, makes you lose, you fell for the trap, might as well run to Europe,
Have I got into a fight with a BIG BLACK GUY yet?
hahah,. targeting little children was a real bad idea, MS DISHONEST
I suggest your learn about the RPF in Scientology, and see who that was "written about"
Jessica Alba murdered FBI intelligence analyst,. hahah,. SURE,. check with the beltway,.
Every movie star in Hollywood , will die, before 1 FBI intelligence analysts dies for "her COS",.. haha,. watch her crumble,.
They'll use microwaves to get all her kids hit by trucks like GAGE from pet semtary, before they let Scientology, kill some SIGINT worker, Jessica Alba, a terrorist,. watch the whole thing crumble, live on CNN
Beauty vs Brains AND Beauty,. and cops,. hmm
Just you keep that "DISHONEST" formula, pumping,.
do you humber colleagely, think I care about saying that I am in TORONTO? haha,. there are so many cops here,. say hi to SID for me , COMMODORE!!
here's an open invite for coming to murder me on the humber / lakeshore bridge! Keep murderin those "CHILDREN" you love so much,.
are we still going to get MARRIED?
now that you helped murder my girlfriend ANNIE, are we to be together, and live in TACOMA
it's going to be you that gets hit by a car, not me
watch your food , tampa!
Well done Jess... I Think She is Good actress, Good person, Good mother, and just Perfect Woman;) Thumbs Up
Hollywood sure is tough! So is working in an auto factory. That is why I have dedicated my life to doing neither.
Hollywood, is a extremely week, "force" when it comes to fighting FBI, NSA, LAPD,. if she's directing her gang over to humber college, for "instigating fights",. taking blind orders from the mafia, and relaying stenographic murder messages, is bad news.
does this girl NEED a certain someone to be ugly, for her "gang" not to get caught trying to murder pretty boys, for a bunch of illegal aliens? Know that same gang disfigures little boys with GHB, and needles of "acid" to their nose cartilage, to help with their "cause" of joining the mafia, because you can't get a GIRLFRIEND,. what do you think a lot of this ugly little jerks say when scientology comes up to them and asks them "what do you want",. they say, I want a girlfriend, so they are all the way a disfiguring little boys, so they can "sell" their girlfriends to illegal aliens, and trophie wife criminals,.
is it really true that her "gang" needs someone to be ugly? You're going to accomplish this by following people around giving them the finger with a bag on your head? I suggest you check with your own, droopie looking eyes, and "bat ears" ms alba, and low sloping forehead
your going to get caught for helping to murder "pretty boys" for the ILLEGAL ALIENS, who want to "marry" their girlfriend,. and beating them, and you come along to try to help "break them down" and do other crimes, like watching the cops with your little goofie phone.
you'll be luck if they don't cut her ear off or something, for helping them "disfigure" little boys, to support the cos
just imagine that poor little boy crying for his mommy, as those 3 teenagers, held him down, and stuck that needle of acid into his nose, so he would have a more ugly nose, for the rest of his life so he can't "take one of their girls"
the "satellite" virtual fan club had them convinced that they were going to "justin beiber" if they disfigured that little boy, as he balled for his mommy.
these teenagers think that "talent agents" are scouting them down on the internet and cell phone, and they held that poor little boy down, and he screamed and cryed with his little red face, and they permanantly disfigured him with a needle of acid, stuck in his nose, for "HER GANG"
that little boy never did ANYTHING, they are investing that far ahead into the future of their "selling relationships" BIZ,. you just remember what kind of filthy piece of crap this person really is.
she;s real HONEST all right
how do we find this out, it's encoded all over the "LIL TIKES" COMMERCIAL playground equipment, with the code 64, 69, and the rest of it.
so yip,. come on up to Canada, and try to "take love away from me" with your gang of sunglasses wearing, emos. Hit me with your best shot.
you can "change me into an ugly person" alright to hide who you are helping to murder.
just learn who ROBERT PAULSON is
they really are ready to "break your neck" if your gang thinks it's going to somehow "ruin my confidence", and they are going to "make me ugly" somehow, with some sunglasses and eyebrow makeup
we dont need some "blacks" vs cops gang war in Toronto, or LA right now, because they are your "rappers" over their "lust" for those "chicks" that are show off material.
MY hells angels don't want this, and MY back street gangs don't want this, and MY Scientology doesn't want it either!
you gotta remember that this person lies almost EXACTLY the opposite of what she's part of starting , being some "black street gang" fight over "white b**ches" in LA, and Toronto, and their "stud gangster" brain wash, and their "FLASH MAFIA", and beating pretty white boys. Just remember who really runs the drugs, and money.
they got "fake interracial couples" that walk around, trying to provoke people over this, that aren't even real, trying to get people to "join the gang" so they can have their own "white **tch" with a small *ss.
you just remember who tells the TRUTH, and who LIES for a living.
this is one person that your not going "TO BEAT"
Rhys, I think some guys from asylum are looking for you
What a great person and beautiful woman. I f ANY guy wanted a sweet & smart woman she would be it, and no doubt she is an AWESOME mommy. I want her as my kid's mommy!!!! Thank god for Jessica Alba!!!!
