Jessica Biel Covers 'Vogue' February 2010
On why she won’t discuss her relationship with Justin Timberlake:“I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t feel the need to clear anything up. It’s the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don’t care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I’m not going to. It’s mine. And I really like that about it.”
On her fashion sense: “I like überfeminine things mixed with something rougher around the edges.”
On posing nearly naked for Gear magazine at age 17, which freed her from her 7th Heaven” contract after the show’s fourth season: “I really wanted to go to college, and it all kind of happened at the same time. I did this photo shoot. The photo shoot came out. It was terribly embarrassing. I had to apologize to everybody, including my parents. It was a big learning experience — learning how to have boundaries and how to say no.”
On getting glammed up for the red carpet: “When I see myself in pictures with makeup on, even to this day, I think it looks weird. My eyes get squintier and smaller. On the red carpet, I’m playing a character. As soon as I get off that thing I think, Oof, wipe that gloss off. I’m wiping and wiping and pulling my hair out and trying to change my outfit. I’m immediately trying to get comfortable. It’s really a part I play.”
Jessica next stars in the romantic comedy, Valentine’s Day, out February 12.
