London: Jessica Alba has revealed she found it "hard" to rebel against her family`s strict beliefs when she was growing up.
The "Killer Inside Me" actress admits her Catholic upbringing was quite strict and though her mother and father had views she didn`t always agree with, she didn`t want to upset them by going on a different direction in her life, reports imdb.com.
"I come from a religious and traditional family. My mom grew up in the south and she had a southern Baptist upbringing but my father was very Catholic. It`s hard to rebel without your family feeling like you`re rebelling against them," she said.
"I don`t necessarily always agree with certain things and that has nothing to do with how much I love them or how much they love me. Family is the most important thing in the world," she added.
The 29-year-old actress, who has a 23-month old daughter, Honor Marie, with her husband Cash Warren always knew she wanted to live a different life from her parents from a young age.
"There were parameters and boundaries around me that I always wanted to break from," she said.
