London: Actress Jessica Alba says she feels like a "lone wolf" as the CEO of The Honest Company as there are not many female CEOs around.

The "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" star, who is also a chief executive officer (CEO) of lifestyle brand The Honest Company, admits 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."
However, the 34-year-old actress insists 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.
"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?!'"
