Jessica Biel: Easy Virtue Was Not So Easy

Jessica Biel gets into her car after spending some time at a friend’s house in Los Angeles on Tuesday (May 26).

The 27-year-old actress describes her preparation process for her role in Easy Virtue, where she plays Larita Whittaker, a glamorous American widow and racecar driver. “I looked at a lot of old Katharine Hepburn movies for that kill-’em-with-a-smile, fantastic, witty, dry delivery,” Biel told MTV News, adding that she also studied Jean Harlow for her “sex appeal, diva quality.”

“Stepping into the room for the read-through, I was freaking out,” Biel said. “I’m the only American. I’m just sitting there feeling weird and out of place.”
