Jessica Alba is also known for her guest appearances in television shows over the years. In 2000, she was promoted to prime time by the director James Cameron, who chose her over 1,200 candidates for a Fox action show called Dark Angel. The show ran until 2002, and her performance as Max Guevara – a genetically engineered super soldier – brought Jessica a Golden Globe nomination.
Her career as a super star was only starting, and other films followed, bringing her success after success. Sin City, Honey, Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer or Good Luck Chuck were among the most appreciated by the public.
Her acting career was doubled by numerous endorsements for several companies: Piaget, Revlon and Microsoft. Alba also appeared many times on the Hot 100 List of Maxim magazine, with a number-one ranking in 2001, several times in FHM Magazine, and was listed as one of the “25 Sexiest Women of All Time” by Gentlemen Quarterly.
In her personal life, Jessica Alba married Cash Warren, a film producer, in 2008, and that same year, gave birth to a baby girl – Honor Marie Warren. The event was greatly popularized, and OK! Magazine is said to have purchased the first pictures of their baby, for $1.5 million. A second daughter of the couple was born three years later – Haven Warren.
Acting was not the only activity that contributed to Jessica Alba net worth. She also co-founded a company that manufactures eco-friendly products for babies and for cleaning – The Honest Company. The firm employs more than 275 people and its revenues are around $150 million a year. August 2014 was the month when the company made $72 million and received a $1 billion market valuation. The company will probably file for an initial public offering soon.
The participation of Jessica Alba in this company is not yet very clear in terms of ownership. However, the company reached a market valuation of $1.7 billion in August 2015, and, according to many analysts, Alba owns 20% of it. As a consequence, her share would currently be worth $200 million roughly, before taxes, which adds significantly to Jessica Alba’s net worth.
