Jessica Alba says 5-year-old daughter Honor is just like her – sort of.
"For sure I see a mini me," she tells PEOPLE with a laugh at Variety's Power of Women luncheon in Beverly Hills Friday, before adding: "I was a tomboy when I was a kid. Honor is like me grown up. It's so bizarre."
Perhaps her daughter is simply reacting to her mom's burgeoning mogul status. In addition to Alba's busy acting career, the Sin City actress is also the founder of The Honest Company, which makes stylish, eco-friendly products for kids and families.

All she wanted to do was make some fish sticks for her daughter. Instead, Jessica Alba caused a smoky situation and set off the fire alarm at her New York hotel.
In town to premiere her new movie The Killer Inside Me at the Tribeca Film Festival, Alba was attempting to heat up some fish sticks in her room at the Smyth Hotel on Wednesday when, according to Internet reports, she couldn't figure out how to work the oven. Instead, the actress almost caused a fire in the hotel – with smoke so bad that fire trucks were called to the scene.
But Alba's rep tells PEOPLE there was no fire. "They were preparing Honor's dinner," her rep, Brad Cafarelli, says. "[There was] no fire – just some smoke that unfortunately set off the alarm."

When it comes to blowing off steam, some celebrities practice yoga, some get massages, and others hit the beach. For Jessica Alba, relief comes in the form of her daughter.
"Honor is the best cure for stress," the actress says of her 19-month-old in the February issue of Self. "When I spend time with her, I get instant perspective. I can be hard on myself if I don't do everything perfectly. But now that I have her, there's no time for that."
Alba, 28, who is part of the all-star cast in the upcoming romantic comedy Valentine's Day, says she hopes to teach Honor not to be so hard on herself, either: "I want to teach her that you can learn from your mistakes, and if you keep moving and stay positive and loving, everything will work out."
The actress regained her pre-baby figure quickly, but says becoming a mom also changed her perspective on her body.
"Pregnancy was the most incredible experience I've ever had," she tells the magazine. "So I’ll take the stretch marks. I’ll take the sagging boobs. I'll take the cellulite I can never get rid of. If you walk around with your head held high and you’re happy and positive, then all that other stuff is irrelevant. Confidence is number one."
