Jessica Alba has revealed she wouldn't want her daughters to follow in her acting footsteps.
The Spy Kids 4 star, who began acting when she was 12, would prefer for Honor and newborn baby Haven to wait until they are older.
"I just don't see the need to put a child in a situation where they're working with adults or being asked to work. I think they should just be kids," she said.
"I love being in the arts so when they're finished with college, and they want to do that - totally. I think the more life experience you have, the better you are at whatever it is you want to do."
The 30-year-old also admitted she might not have done family-friendly roles if she wasn't a mother, adding: "I don't know if I even would have done the kids' movie if I wasn't a parent."
Jessica, whose first role was in TV series The Secret World Of Alex Mack, was inspired to become an actress at the age of five.
"I wanted to be an actor when I was younger, but I grew up in a different circumstance. I wanted to travel, I wanted to see the world. I had opinions about things and I wanted to express them and acting was my outlet," she continued.
"But my kids are going to have different circumstances. I'm going to be able to provide for them."
