Jessica Alba is a much stricter parent than her own
The 30-year-old actress - who has two daughters, Honor, three, and six-month-old Haven, with husband Cash Warren - admits she is harder on her kids than her "cool and laid back" mum Catherine and dad Mark Alba were for her.
She said: "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`.
"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."
Jessica 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.
Speaking on `Jimmy Kimmel Live`, she added: "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."
