Jessica Alba's daughter Honor rejected her mother's offer to host her 16th birthday party.

The 43-year-old actress – who has Honor, 15, 12-year-old Haven and Hayes, six, with her 45-year-old husband Cash Warren – had proposed to host her daughter's birthday celebrations, but the teenager dismissed the 'Sin City' star's "embarrassing" offer.

During an appearance on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', the 'Fantastic Four' star told the host: "I was like, '[It's] your 16th birthday, this is my moment to really shine as a party-thrower.'

"And she’s like, 'No, mom, it’s so embarrassing.'"

Jessica said Honor – who will be turning 16 later this week (07.06.24) – "'couldn't think of anything worse'" when she suggested the birthday party.

The actress told her daughter: "'I'm the best party-thrower in the world!'"

However, Honor wasn't keen on the idea, with Jessica recalling her daughter saying: "'I just wanna, like, have dinner with my friends — like maybe 22 of them or something — and we’re just gonna play games.'"

Though Jessica was ready to enthusiastically embrace the teenager's suggestions, she was still ordered to stay away from the planning.

She recalled telling her: "'Oh my god, I have a game guy. And we can, like, do stations. … We can do cut-outs of you. And everyone can wear pyjamas!'"

The 'Dark Angel' actress admitted Honor was even less impressed with that offer, and said to her: "'Are you kidding me? Do you want me to, like, ever see my friends ever again?'"

As well as her daughter's birthday, Jessica discussed her decision to step down as CCO of the eco-friendly beauty and baby business The Honest Company – which she co-founded in 2012 - and admitted leaving the corporation in the hands of its new CEO Carla Vernón felt like she had "sent [her] baby off to college".

She said: "I have Carla Vernón, and she's running the company, and it's great. And there's a whole senior leadership team that's fantastic.

"I feel like it's my fourth baby and I like sent it ... sent my baby off to college."

The actress emphasised she was "ready for the next chapter" of her life as she makes her acting return in Netflix's upcoming flick 'Trigger Warning', which she also executive produced.
