For Jessica Alba, mean girls aren't just limited to high school.
The actress and co-founder of The Honest Company opened up to Yahoo! Parenting about what it was like when she first became a parent, and it sounds like it wasn't always nice.
"I know as a mom—and as a new parent—I felt confused. And I felt judged," she said. "Doesn't it feel like the mean girl thing from high school sort of just transforms into adulthood through motherhood? I think it has to do with hormones, right? I mean, this is the first time I'm actually saying this out loud, but that mean girl stuff happens when your hormones are going crazy."
"And then your hormones go crazy again when you're pregnant and having a baby. And even when you're breastfeeding," the mother-of-two continued. "And I feel like maybe it's just all those hormones, and people don't know where to put their energy, so they just start clashing."

Having experienced the judgment firsthand after having two girls, Honor, 7, and Haven, 3, Alba has some advice for new moms.
"I think the biggest thing is that what works for you, or what works for your friend, isn't going to work for everyone. There is no right or wrong," she explained. "I have two very different girls. And the way that I parent one is different than the way that I parent the other."
"I think we as women — and as moms — we need to show younger girls that we support each other no matter what," she encouraged. "And to try and not be so judgmental."
And thankfully, for Alba, she also gets plenty of support from her husband, Cash Warren.
"He's a good listener," she said. "He's been an entrepreneur longer than I have. He helps me a lot…I wouldn't be able to do what I do if I didn't have a great partner. My husband's loving and supportive. And he's a great dad. And we're very much a team."
In addition to being a talented actress, Alba is also pretty business savvy! The Honest Company is reportedly worth a billion dollars. Check out the video below to see how Alba spoke up for celebrity businesswomen by using herself as an example.
