With the launch of Jessica Alba’s new book, “The Honest Life,” she is getting a bunch of press, but her most recent interview might have Alicia Silverstone and Gwyneth Paltrow fans up in arms.
In an interview with NY Daily News, Alba had some choice words to say about the above actresses, their books and their websites.
“Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she’s the extreme side of it,” she said. “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.”
Now, she might not have meant to come off catty, but that’s sure how it reads. Calling Silverstone’s vegan philosophy “extreme” might make some vegans angry, because it sort of sheds a bad light on the animal-friendly lifestyle. Saying Paltrow isn’t “grounded,” because she grew up rich, could even upset others.
Similar to Alba, both Silverstone and Paltrow are popular for their franchises. Silverstone is widely loved for her website, The Kind Life, not to mention her book “The Kind Diet.”
Paltrow is recognized for Goop.com, which at times does suggest higher-end products, and for her new cookbook, “It’s All Good,” which offers extremely healthy recipes, some vegetarian, that every family should try.
Alba is known for being a green mom and is widely popular for co-founding The Honest Company. She also isn’t afraid to say how she feels, but do you think she went too far?
She did continue to say, “You can take what you want from the book,” and not everyone has to follow exactly what she does.
