Jessica Alba could be a billionaire after selling her Honest company

It’s definitely more than her movies ever made.

Jessica Alba might not need to make another movie ever again, as she allegedly plans to sell her Honest company for a staggering one billion dollars.

The Sin City star is in advanced talks to sell her household good company to consumer giant Unilever, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Honest sells goods such as nappies, cleaning products and cosmetics, and only uses organic and natural materials in its products.   

Honest, which was co-founded by Alba in 2011, generates roughly $300m in annual revenue.

Buyers Unilever – which officially registered in London – already owns Dove, Lynx and Ben & Jerry’s.

The deal is for significantly less than the $1.7bn the company was allegedly valued at during a fundraising drive last year.

However, Honest was at the centre of controversy earlier this year, after the company was accused of using potentially harmful synthetic material in its liquid laundry. The company strongly denied the claims.

Outside of business, it’s been a relatively quiet few years for Alba, whose last major movie role came in 2014’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

She did appear in Mechanic: Resurrection alongside Jason Statham earlier this year. Watch the trailer below:
