Jessica Alba gets ‘Honest’ at GrowCo in Nashville

Although I haven’t had any luck in the effort myself, celebrity sightings in Nashville aren’t supposed to be that unusual. Still, Jessica Alba’s visit to Music City for Inc.’s 2015 GrowCo Conference brought with it a more unique opportunity: listening to a celebrity talk about her multimillion dollar startup.

Alba is the co-founder of The Honest Company, a consumer goods firm focused on nontoxic, eco-friendly products that generated $150 million in revenue in 2014. She and her co-founder Brian Lee took the stage at GrowCo late Wednesday, sharing the ups and downs of their entrepreneurial journey with conference attendees.

Some of the downs came early in the company’s formation, when Alba faced skepticism about the scope of the company she wanted to build. The primary entrepreneurial opportunity for celebrities is to license your brand, Alba said, but she wanted to build a broad community with a variety of products that people could use to lead healthier, better lives.

“It was just so outside of the scope of what anybody had done in my position at the time,” Alba said.

And while Alba was able to land meetings with Silicon Valley venture capitalists, she credits Lee, who also co-founded LegalZoom and ShoeDazzle, with opening those doors, not her celebrity status.

‘Barely Lethal’ Gets PG-13 From Rated R; Action Comedy Stars Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner

Previously, the film received an R rating from the Classification and Rating Appeals Board for sexual content as well as teens engaged in alcohol drinking, as per The Hollywood Reporter. On March 26, the committee changed the film’s rating to PG-13 due to sexual content, alcohol drinking, rude language, drug use, and certain action violence.

On behalf of the film, “Barely Lethal” LLC made an appeal. RKO Pictures Head of Business and Lethal Affairs Suzanne Rosencrans and film director Kyle Newman reported to CARA Chair Joan Graves of the Appeals Board, according to Deadline.

The film trailer shows action in the battle field as well as in school.

“Barely Lethal” is an upcoming action-comedy movie, which follows Megan, a teenage international assassin. The lead character aims for a normal teenage life by falsifying her death and enrolls as a senior high school student. Megan uncovers that living as an ordinary student is more challenging than what she thought.

The film will star Hailee Steinfeld as Megan Walsh, Jessica Alba as Victoria Knox, Sophie Turner as Heather, Dove Cameron as Liz Larson, Jaime King as Special Analyst Knight, and Samuel Jackson as Hardman. Madeleine Stack will play the role of young Megan while Eva Cooper will be the young Heather.

Other cast members include Rachael Harris, Jason Ian Drucker, Thomas Mann, Alexandra Krosney, Dan Fogler, Gabriel Basso, Rob Huebel, Steve-O, and Finesse Mitchell.

Along with Newman as the film’s helmer, John D’Arco is set to pen the script. Alexis Bishop, Christy Cham, John Cheng, Sukee Chew, Vanessa Coifman, Kevin Cornish, Ryan Dorff, Arianne Fraser, C.C. Hang, Ted Hartley, Molley Hassell, Marcus Kaye, William Leo Keily III, William Leo Kiely IV, Harrison Kordestani, Joseph McKelheer, Brigitte Mueller, Brett Ratner, James Reach, Philip Rose, and Nancy Valle are the film co-producers. Filming took place in Atlanta, Georgia.

The film will be produced by RKO Pictures and will be distributed by A24.

“Barely Lethal” is slated to premiere this April.
