Jessica Alba likes "empowering kids" with movies.

The 30-year-old actress may be best known for sexy film roles in projects including 'Machete' and 'Fantastic Four', but she agreed to sign up to 'Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World' because it allows youngsters to think they can be involved in "saving the world".

She said: "I'm a fan of the director, Robert Rodriguez, and the 'Spy Kids' movies. I love how he empowers kids in his movies. It's not just the grown-ups that get to do all the cool action and take part in saving the world.

"It's the kids, and so I think that's really neat. And then he knew that I wanted to do a kid's movie after I had my daughter. So when he suggested it, I was cool."

Jessica believes becoming a mother to Honor, three, allowed her to sign up to this movie and she is unsure if she could have done it otherwise.

She added to moviesonline.ca: "I don't know if I would have even done this movie if I wasn't a parent, so I actually brought my real life experience to work. It was more natural and I've been in a lot of those circumstances for sure."
