Jessica Alba has said she wouldn't mind if her children decided to be actors, as long as they graduate from college first.

The actress has two kids with husband Cash Warren, five-year-old Honor and two-year-old Haven.

Speaking to OK! magazine, Alba said, "They can do anything they want when they graduate from college. I'm going to be very insistent that they take time to study and learn about the world before they choose what they want to do with their lives."

The Sin City star scaled back her work when she became a mother, "I didn't want to work that much when the kids were younger. I'm very comfortable with having decided to stay home and not disrupt their lives by being away, or by taking them with me to film sets."

She added that when she does take Honor on sets, she doesn't think she understands what her mother does for a living, "When it comes to doing movies, Honor will come on set and see that I sit in a trailer and get different hair and make-up done – she thinks I play dress up for a living."

Alba recently credited her husband as being "the best husband in the world" and says that without his support she wouldn't be able to juggle her career and personal life.
