Jessica Alba Cuts Down Fellow Actress Turned Lifestyle Guru Gwyneth Paltrow For Book Sales

Sweet Jessica Alba just showed a little bit of her catty side. In a recent interview for the promotion of her new book Honest Life: Living Naturally and True to You she said she was “much more grounded” than fellow Hollywood mom/author/health obsessive Gwyneth Paltrow.
Alba, 31, told The New York Daily News, “Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she’s the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn’t grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: repurposing things and making things at home.”
Whoa. Way to go for the jugular, Jessica! We all know Gwyneth Paltrow is pretentious and lives an incredible life…but so does Alba. She may have been poor growing up but since she was about 16 she has been doing extremely well. This is like the really hot pot that is a vegetarian calling the other really hot kettle that is vegan black.
Alba said of her tips, “I absolutely do these things. That’s why I wrote the book. There’s lots of options, like delivery services for fresh produce that is organic, if people just want to do a couple of things in the book that are super-easy…You can take what you want from the book.”
Gwyneth gets plenty of criticism from everyone else. She doesn’t need Jessica Alba telling her she is being impractical.
