Jessica Alba may look sweet and innocent but she's a tough boss who has made business associates cry.

The Fantastic Four actress combines her Hollywood career with running The Honest Company, a business that sells stylish, eco-friendly and non-toxic products.

It's believed the business is worth around $1 billion now.

Speaking to More magazine, starlet Jess said of her business style: "Sometimes I'm a little more iron fist than velvet glove. I'm straight to the point. I've made people cry."

Sounds like she'd be a great adviser on The Apprentice!

Jess continued: "I have to say, 'This isn't personal. This is what needs to get done, and it's just as simple as that. And … we're not crying anymore.'"

The Honest Company is going from strength to strength, with Jessica recently revealing the business will be expanding into the Chinese market soon and adding new lines.

"It's been very exciting developing and I'm very anxious to see how our customers respond," she said. "It's my third baby and I've put my heart and soul into it."
