Jessica Alba has taken a massive dig at Gwyneth Paltrow, saying that her organic advice is totally different from the 'Shakespeare in Love' star, as she grew up in a poor family.

The Fantastic Four actress made the comment while promoting her new book 'The Honest Life: Living Naturally and True To You.'

She told The New York Daily News that her lifestyle tips will be more relatable to everyday mums.

"Alicia Silverstone is a vegan, so she's the extreme side of it. Gwyneth Paltrow probably lives a very similar lifestyle, but I didn't grow up with a bunch of money, so my tips are much more grounded: repurposing things and making things at home," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

Alba grew up in a working-class, military family in suburban California, while Paltrow had a privileged upbringing in Los Angeles with her director dad and actress mum. (ANI)
