Jessica Alba will "never stop acting."
Although the 32-year-old actress is branching out into other ventures, such as her lifestyle book The Honest Life, she'll always return to her main creative passion and since becoming a mother to Honor, five, and Haven, three, she's become "fearless" when choosing roles.
"I'm still so passionate about acting and have that as a creative outlet, and it's a big part of who I am; I'll never stop acting. [Having my kids] was the best time of my life. I love it - I feel more fearless as an actress after becoming a mother, which is quite liberating. I'm ready to take on heavier roles, where before I was nitpicky and afraid of so many things."
In 2012, Jessica launched her business The Honest Company - an eco-friendly business which specializes in organically-produced nappies, baby wipes and bath products - and she admits the launch did push her acting aside:
Beyonce hopes her new documentary will inspire her daughter.
The superstar decided to create her new tell-all HBO film Life is But a Dream to give her 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter - whom she has with husband Jay-Z - a source of strength and inspiration in the future and make her proud to see where she came from.
Speaking at the film's New York City premiere last night, she said, "I hope that she will see all of the beautiful times [and] all the tough times that led up to her being here. I'm hoping that... it can comfort her and inspire her in her life when she needs it."
While the 31-year-old singer believes it's important for every woman to retain an air of mystique, she felt the time was right to share her story with the world and celebrate the new stage in her life: "Mystique is very important... It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity - just as a woman - I think it's important. But, at the same time, I felt like it was time for me to share my story because I've been through so much and I have so much to celebrate, so much to share."
Practically akin to Channing Tatum quitting acting for a year, Megan Fox has recently revealed that she won't strip down for a film role in the future - all because of her son.
The 26 year-old - known for her characters' sexy clothing and/or barely there styles - gave birth to her son Noah in late September. She opened up about how she takes great consideration into which roles she chooses now that she is a mother:
"It changes your perspective about being overly sexual in a film when you have a baby. I'm going to be more cautious about choosing films because I'm already thinking about when he's in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he's going to be horrified. So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before."
Megan will next appear in Judd Apatow's This is 40 - set for a December 21 release - which will most likely be the last role where we see the actress in lingerie!

Angelina Jolie has vowed to give up acting when her children get older.
The Salt actress - who raises kids, Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with fiance Brad Pitt - says once all her brood hit their teenage years she is going to give up movies so she can spend more time with them.
"I think I'm going to have to give up the acting as the kids hit the teenage years, anyway, too much to manage at home. I have enjoyed being an actress. I am so grateful to the job and I have had great experiences and I have even been able to tell stories and be a part of stories that mattered and I have done things for fun, but..." she said.
However, she won't retire completely and will do films that fit more around her family life.
