While doing press on the red carpet Us Weekly asked Jess the usual boring questions that we already heard 1000x before. We need to know about any up coming projects etc….  Below are  few quotes for those of you who are interested.

“I didn’t gain as much weight with my second pregnancy, so I think that really made a big difference,” Alba told Us Weekly while hosting Swarovski Elements’ holiday lights installation in Beverly Hills Monday.

“I did prenatal yoga up until the very end,” she added. “I just made healthier choices. I started working out and not going too crazy, but I did what was safe and what the doctor approved.”

“It’s nice to enjoy having a newborn instead of being overwhelmed and wonder if everything is going to be okay,” Alba told Us Weekly. “Now I’m like, ‘Oh, she’ll be fine!’ They’re so sweet together.” Click on the previews above to view more photos.

America’s Moms Are Watching U.S. Senate: Pass the Safe Chemicals Act!

Thursday is a big — and long overdue — day. And American moms, like me, will be tuned in and watching.

Usually, hearings in Congress get little attention from the general public, let alone busy moms. But this Thursday is a big day for those of us who care about protecting American families from toxic chemicals.

The U.S. Senate will be holding a hearing on “The Safe Chemicals Act,” a bill sponsored by Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). The bill, a much-needed overhaul of our antiquated laws, will help us all protect our families from toxic chemicals.

I just gave birth to my second child, and I can tell you that there is no stronger instinct for a mom then wanting to protect her kids and keep them safe. My children have changed my life in wonderful ways. They’ve brought me tremendous joy. They’ve also made me conscious of every product I buy, from toys to mattresses to cleaning products. I hope that the decisions I make will shield my children from harm. Yet today, it’s impossible to be sure. As parents, we just don’t have the information we need to keep our kids safe from toxic chemicals in many household products.

Many moms and dads believe that our government is making sure there aren’t toxic chemicals in our products. And for a long time, I thought the same thing.

However, nothing could be further from the truth. It is still legal to use lead, mercury, asbestos and formaldehyde in many common household products. Even worse, there are thousands of other chemicals in use that have never been tested for safety at all!

We require all kinds of companies to make sure that their products are safe before they’re sold, from food to pharmaceuticals to pickup trucks. And yet there is no requirement that the chemicals used in consumer products be tested for safety, even if they’re used in products made for children.

Would you give your child medicine that hadn’t been tested to make sure it was safe?

Parents are often shocked to find out that there are dangerous chemicals in their child’s plastic baby bottles, toys, baby soap, shower curtains, and even in their crib mattresses. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

That’s why parents are demanding action from Congress now. That’s why we need the Safe Chemicals Act.

I am hopeful that members of both parties will see this as an issue of basic common sense — for the health of their kids and grandkids and those of their constituents. I believe they will do the right thing. And I am encouraged by bipartisan efforts to make progress on this issue. Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, the lead Republican on the committee hearing this bill, has joined with Senator Lautenberg to seek common ground on this issue.

I hope the companies that make chemicals and household products will step up, too, and become partners in passing this important legislation. The Safe Chemicals Act will enhance their brands and their businesses, and, most importantly, serve their customers well — especially their tiniest ones.

Moms (and dads!) across the country are busy people. They are trying to raise their kids and support their families. But on Thursday, lots of us moms will be watching online on behalf of parents across the country.

Every kid has the right to be safe in her home. Every mom has the right to know that the products she buys for her child are free of toxic chemicals.

We have hope and faith in our political system to fix this problem, and we are counting on our U.S. Senators to get it done. For the sake of our kids, do not let us down.

For more information and to join the campaign go to the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families website www.saferchemicals.org or Facebook page. Click here to call your U.S. Senator today and ask them to support The Safe Chemicals Act of 2011.

The famine in Somalia has killed 30,000 children in 3 months. In 2011 we have the opportunity to make famine a thing of the past. Lives are in your hands. Please fully fund Feed the Future and help break the cycle of famine for good.

Bono, George Clooney, Jessica Alba, Idris Elba and more unite behind ONE’s new campaign to help focus the world’s attention again on the famine and food crisis in the Horn of Africa.

This summer, a food crisis emerged in the Horn of Africa and now threatens the lives of more than 13 million people. Although we’ve come a long way since the Ethiopian famine of 1984-85, it’s time to make sure this doesn’t happen again – anywhere. In Africa and beyond, the US government is investing in local agriculture, safety nets, risk management, and other programs so that this type of tragedy becomes history. But this fall, Congress threatens to cut foreign assistance programs like Feed the Future that sustainably help people break the cycle of poverty and hunger. This, coupled with increased peace and security can help ensure famine never happens again.

ONE is campaigning to ensure that the Congressional budget does not cut foreign assistance programs that help people break the cycle of poverty and hunger.

Capitol Hill celebrity-watchers were wide-eyed Tuesday as actress Jessica Alba arrived in Washington for a two-day lobbying effort on behalf of the Safe Chemicals Act.

The act seeks to improve the safety of consumer products and increase public awareness about product quality.

Alba hosted a press conference Tuesday and will meet with various politicians through Wednesday to solicit their support. In an interview with POLITICO, Alba said that the act seeks to assure “that the chemicals in our products, that are in and around our children, are safe and tested, because they’re basically untested. And our children as being used as the testing animals, so to say.”

Alba is a spokeswoman for the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition and became passionate about the issue four years ago, when she learned about toxic plastics used to make some baby products. Alba became increasingly disturbed by the issue when she became a mother herself. Her daughter, Honor Marie, was born in 2008; Alba is currently pregnant with her second child.

“The thing about this issue, maybe more than other issues, is that we’re not asking for any taxpayer money. This is really changing the way businesses run their business and the way that they put their ingredients together,” said Alba. “All the issues are bipartisan, or non-partisan, really. It’s not a political issue at all. It’s really just a humanity issue.”

It’s hardly Alba’s first time championing a cause in Washington. In 2010, she visited Capitol Hill in support of the Education for All Act. In 2009, Alba came to D.C. as the honorary U.S. co-chairwoman of 1GOAL, a campaign that used the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa to draw attention to childhood education issues.

Alba says she’s grown to like Washington.

“It’s lovely, it’s a great place to raise kids,” said Alba, who sees some similarities between the nation’s capital and Hollywood.

“The one thing that’s similar to Los Angeles is I feel like there’s just one industry,” said Alba. Washington has politics and “in L.A., you’ve obviously got Hollywood.”

Joining Alba at the press conference was New Jersey Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who first introduced the Safe Chemicals Act.
