Washington: Jessica Alba has revealed that being a mother in real life proved to be “helpful” for her role in the new movie ‘Spy Kids 4’.
The 30-year-old American actress, who has two daughters Honor, 3 and Haven, one week, with husband Cash Warren, thinks her own experience of being a mother gave her a good insight into the role where she plays a retired secret agent married to a spy-hunting reporter raising three children.
“I think it was helpful,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“I don’t know if I would have even done this movie if I wasn’t a parent, so I actually brought my real life experience to work. It was more natural and I’ve been in a lot of those circumstances for sure,” she added.
