Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Jes­sica Alba (left) says she feels like a “lone wolf ” as the CEO of her con­sumer goods com­pany as there are not many fe­male CEOs around.

The star ad­mits that she found it hard at first to be among only a small num­ber of fe­male CEOs, re­ported Fe­male First. “You feel like a lone wolf sur­rounded by men who have done it all be­fore,” she said.

How­ever, the 34-year-old ac­tor in­sists that she has ex­pe­ri­ence about be­ing la­belled dif­fer­ently than men brought over from her time in the film in­dus­try.

“I’ve ac­tu­ally felt this more in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try. Peo­ple never say a male ac­tor is dif­fi­cult, they call him smart, but if a woman did the same thing, she would be con­sid­ered a b***h,” she said fur­ther adding, “I find it funny when I get called am­bi­tious! I’ve even had my agents do in­tros and say, ‘She’s a very am­bi­tious young lady.’ And I’m al­ways like, ‘What does that mean?!’”
