Jessica Biel won’t eat bread, dairy, sugar, salt or meat while she’s working


Here are some new photos of Jessica Biel, from her appearance in the August issue of Glamour UK. Enjoy the photos, because the interview excerpts that have come out are crazy boring. Jessica talks about …zzz…. Wha? Yeah. Something about dieting (her diet is insane), blah, yoga, blah blah, fart jokes. She doesn’t actually tell a fart joke, or heaven forbid actually fart during the interview. Please! Biel would never. No, she just mentions that there were fart jokes in her general vicinity, which makes me wonder if her A-Team costars sometimes referred to Biel as “The Fart Joke” re: her acting. Here are some of the highlights:

Jessica Biel does a sexy photo shoot for Glamour UK’s August issue.

“I’m not a perfect person who doesn’t mess up, eat bad, not work out–I do all those things,” Biel tells the magazine.

But her normal workout regimen is two or three days a week with a personal trainer, and exercise every day–whether she goes to the gym or does hiking or ballet. And no bread, dairy, sugar, salt or much meat when she is working. (“Oh, it’s the worst!”)

Biel also subscribes to the Kelly Bensimon method of a weekly six-day fast followed by a day of feasting.

“When I’m working and I eat healthily all week, I then give myself one day–usually Sunday–when I just eat what I want. You have to, otherwise your mind goes a little nutso,” she said.

The A-Team actress fits a gruelling exercise regime around work to stay in shape. ‘I see my trainer one day, next day I take a yoga class, or take a hike, take a ballet class,’ the 28-year-old model told Glamour magazine.

‘I used to do a lot of ballet – it’s the most amazing workout. Every day I do something, whether it’s in the gym, the pool or hiking with my three dogs.’

But she has not always been so well behaved. ‘I absolutely had a mad, crazy period. Probably 16 to 22-ish, I was sneaking out of the house, getting in trouble,’ she admitted.

Actress Jessica Biel says she fears the big-screen remake of The A-Team might receive mixed reviews as it is an adaptation of a popular television show.

“There’s a heightened sense of concern when you’re doing something so beloved around the world. What I always think is you can’t please everybody. There will be people who hate it; there will be people who absolutely love it. Hopefully, people will come and see it and make whatever judgment they want,” quoted her as saying.

The actress stars alongside Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper in the movie. And despite the predominantly male cast, Biel enjoyed the on-set humour.

“It was super-manly, but fun. They loved having some female energy. It was nice to have men and women together. All testosterone, all oestrogen – a little too much of one is never good. I felt very comfortable. But there were a lot of fart jokes,” she said.

Do you mind if I don’t talk about what she actually said? It’s just that I now hope that Biel talks about how gorgeous she is and how she’s going to win an Oscar in every interview, but she’s just not bringing it anymore. While this interview was totally boring, it also didn’t offend me. Bad Biel!

As for the photos, they’re kind of gorgeous. Not as pretty as her GQ China shoot, but it’s still pretty good. One thing – is it just me, or does Biel have a couple of bad angles? Not hideous, but her face just looks oddly out of proportion when she dips her head down. It’s a strange effect.

    I’m glad she thinks she’s good looking. Noboby else does. Certainly last choice for any acting ability.

  2. clare says:

    She’s just blah, no charisma. That commercial for eye something she does is awful. She just can’t get over herself enough to be a real actress.
    The cover face does not even look like her!

  3. Tazina says:

    I don’t know about her career, etc. but I don’t find her dieting information boring. I have Saturday to eat what I want and that enables me to resist junk food during the week. “Saturday is treat day” has gotten me through a lot of temptations as the feeling of frustration is just not there. I know I will be able to pig out on on my one day a week. That piece of chocolate cake tastes even better then.

  4. snowball says:

    Eh, Johnthing, I think she’s good looking. Guess you’re wrong.

    She’s harmless. Who does she bash? She’s annoying. But who does she bash? I don’t remember how it all went down, but did she end up “stealing” that flamoid Timberlake from Cameron Diaz? I don’t pay much attention to who she ever dated, but other than her moronic stunt on 7th Heaven, I can’t think of anything destructive she’s ever done, other than just be dull and apparently piss people off just by..being and daring to have self-esteem, even though people think it isn’t warranted.

    We cut people down for thinking they’re beautiful when we don’t think they are, yet we worship people who have historically been looked down on by society but are generally being accepted now (and who themselves go on and on now about how beautiful they are) – Christina Hendricks anyone?

  5. lucy2 says:

    Eating healthy all week is not a six day fast. It’s…eating healthy.
    She’s pretty boring.

  6. bellaluna says:

    I don’t think those dietary extremes are necessary. I’ve lost all the baby weight (plus and additional 25 pounds) just by being conscientious about what I eat, how much I eat, and when. It’s really not that hard.

    And I like her. I don’t care what anyone else says.

  7. autotron says:

    Just as a side note, somewhat off topic – WHY do people actually believe finding large breasted, slightly less emaciated women, like Ms. Hendricks, attractive is REVOLUTIONARY?????? Last i checked, thinking big tittied women with some meat on their bones was the beauty ideal THROUGHOUT ALL OF HISTORY. It is only within the past 50 years that “skinny” has been a compliment…not to mention Christina is by no means a large woman. THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY HOW??????? Call me when we start drooling over a large woman with little breasts.

  8. guesty says:

    that’s why her body is in such good shape…

  9. pebbles says:

    She’s beautiful but I can’t stand this condescending woman. She claims not to be perfect, yet she has gone on and on about being so beautiful that it sabotages her career in Hollywood. Funny how Jessica Lange and Michelle Pfeiffer managed to be in some pretty good movies despite their beautiful countenances. Give me a break, Biel…….you can’t act.

  10. Crash2GO2 says:

    I like that she isn’t weirdly skinny. But personally, if I worked out that much and ate like that, I would start to look like beef jerky. But that is just my body type.

  11. gillie says:

    shes as interesting as watching paint dry.

  12. Richi says:

    She’s got a good body that’s all that is good of her’s! she’s got a wide, stretchy mouth!!!

  13. gabs says:

    Shes so dull. Its like Jessica Alba. Incredible bodies, nothing to offer in terms of acting. She will keep being the girlfriend of the lead guy until she gets too old

  14. canadianchick says:

    Tyra Banks sings her no neck monster song….

  15. Missfit says:

    Thanks comment 7, you made such a good point! If women who are not thin and they remotely meaty with big boobs and not Hollywood’s standards of “hot” then they are considered “ugly’ and “fat.” (I don’t have nothing bad to say about Ms. Jessica Biel here, I think she’s very pretty). But not all thin women are “hot.” I don’t even think it’s all about the big boobs…but ofcoarse lots of guys like that and big butts too, but only if they can edit their gfs and put them together like a paper doll, (a little bit of this and that) and she’d be PERFECT in his eyes! While it’s okay for some guys to be “fat” with a big gut, but not women? I see plenty of Hollywood comedian dudes or whatever that aren’t exactly “hot” or “fit” they look like an average Joe… and yet somehow they end up with someone who is thin and considered “attractive”…some aren’t so bad and are actually cute. Yet, I don’t see these supposedly “fat” girls with these “hot” guys in Hollywood. I give alot of credit to Pierce Brosnan and Hugh Jackman for being with their wives, even if they are not the Hollywood mold of “gorgeous” or “hot” and they look seriously happy. I think Pierce’s wife is still beautiful till this day, no matter how different she looks from before. But, you know, that’s double standards for you.

  16. EzE says:

    It is just bizarre how people think that Christina Hendricks being thought of as attractive is somehow unusual. Historically and within the last fifty years, men would find her attractive. Symmetry. Just bizarre, plus Jessica Biel is attractive too. Really, what planet are you people on anyway?

  17. Kitten says:

    No salt, sugar, meat or dairy? What’s left????? Poor thing must be living on cardboard…

  18. bizzy says:

    “I’m not a perfect person who doesn’t mess up, eat bad, not work out …”

    i’m guessing that, by “messing up”, she doesn’t mean “have unprotected sex with my sister’s jailbird fiancee in the back of a stolen car, two days before their wedding”. she probably means “use warm water instead of cold to rinse the conditioner out of my hair”.

    she’s lovely. the dress in the cover shot is ridiculous, especially since it has a thick leather belt in among the foot-long feathers. wtf, people, wtf.

  19. Lizzard says:

    I met her back in the day around New Year’s 1998-1999 in Hawaii when she was still on 7th Heaven or was just off of it. She was INSANE! There were these beach parties every night and she’d rip off her clothes run straight into the waves saying something about how she wants to “F* the waves”.

    I didn’t like her before that and then after I thought she was some weird drunken slut. I like that she calmed down a bit, and I do think she’s attractive in a nontypical way. Her diet sounds ridiculous though! As soon as she stops eating normally again she’s going to start gaining weight back. It’s not healthy to not eat for 6 days and go crazy on the 7th, you’re ruining your metabolism!

  20. autotron says:

    Thank you #15! It really has ONLY been about 50 years that skinny is also viewed as beautiful. What, skinny women arent allowed to be seen as beautiful??? This doesnt qualify as an example of accepting all forms of beauty? GFY

  21. bite me says:

    bland personality, nice athletic body, and in desperate need of some acting classes

  22. Wif says:

    Re: the diet. My friend is in Overeaters Anonymous, and her diet has been very much like that. When the enjoyment is taken out of food, and you’re only eating what you need to survive, it’s much easier to portion control. When there is joy in food it’s too easy to use it to replace the things that you’re missing. Not that I think Biel is an overeater, but she is in an industry that demands she look her best so I see why she’d need to have that level of control for a film.

    Incidentally, my friend has lost about 150 pounds. I think it’s a solid system, if you are addicted to food.

  23. moopsie says:

    no dairy … wonder if she’ll end up like gweneth

  24. Oi says:

    Congrats to your friend Wif! That is a life changing accomplishment!

  25. Kiska says:

    She is boring and a bad actress.

  26. Juiceinla says:

    well, I am in the minority here, but her diet is “de-riguer” in this town. For medical reasons, I have ended up on essentially the same diet (except no one has pried caffeine or salt from my banshee claws yet) and after the first month of shock and whining, I have to say it’s not that bad. Weird thing is, with no breads, carbs, pastas, pizza, crackers, grains, cereals- I actually stopped being super hungry all the time, and no longer crave any of it.

  27. Liana says:

    I want those boots in the second photo (the one after the cover photo). I want them badly!

  28. trashaddict says:

    “When the enjoyment is taken out of food….” – that’s pathetic. Life is too short not to enjoy your food. It shouldn’t be a crutch, but it shouldn’t be treated like it’s evil either.

  29. tripmom says:

    I really respect her for being straightforward about how hard she works to keep that figure. Like her or not she has a great body, and I HATE when starlets claim “oh I don’t exercise I eat whatever I want, blah, blah, blah” and you know they’re totally full of it and they absolutely starve themselves. She should be proud of herself. She has incredible self-discipline.

  30. Wif says:

    @trashaddict, that system is for people who are addicted to using food as a crutch. It’s not about saying that food is evil, but controlling your relationship with it.

    Drug and alcohol abusers can avoid their addiction completely, and that’s difficult enough. Food addicts still have to eat everyday to survive. I’ll never call that system pathetic, it’s made enormous changes in the life of my friend; she still gets to enjoy her friends, her family, her work, her hobbies, but not food.
