Los Angeles, Feb 26 Actress Jessica Alba says she is a strict mother for her daughters, unlike her “cool” and “laid back” parents.
“I did have that dreaded moment when my daughter decided that every answer I gave her wasn’t a good one and she kept saying, ‘But why mommy? But why mommy?’, and I was like, ‘Because I said so’. And I thought, ‘Oh God, I’m that mum, I’m my mum’,” Alba, who has two daughters Honor, three, and six-month-old Haven, said at “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
“My parents did use ‘because I said so’ and they were not strict. They were fun and cool and laid back and a way better time than me,” she added.
Alba admits she was such a “super bad” child she once took her dad’s car and drove to a fast food restaurant at the age of 14, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I got good grades and I was going to Bible study all the time. I wasn’t bad. But I rebelled, I guess. Like one time when I was fourteen or thirteen or something, I took my dad’s Ford Probe to Jack in the Box. I took side streets. It was a car full of girls. We were bumping Sublime. I was a super bad kid,” she said.
