Jessica AlbaJessica Alba has said she’s going to be taking daughter Honor to work with her when she starts work on her next movie.

The Fantastic Four star gave birth to Honor Marie in June and speaking at the premiere of Madonna’s new film Filth and Wisdom in New York on Monday night, she explained that it’s going to be hard to switch out of mum-mode for her new film An Invisible Sign of My Own.

She explained: “To be honest with you, it’s tough – and if it was any other movie I wouldn’t be doing it. It’s difficult to spend any time away from her.”

“I love my daughter and she’s going to be with me every day on the set.”

An Invisible Sign of My Own, based on the novel by Aimee Bender, will see Jessica playing a young maths teachers using the subject to help her troubled pupils. It is expected to begin filming in New York before the end of the year.
