Jessica Biel says Justin dresses her because “he has better taste than I do”

Jessica Biel covers the August issue of InStyle Magazine to promote two big projects coming up soon. One, she’s got a supporting part in Total Recall. Two, she’s going to marry Justin Timberlake come hell or high water. It doesn’t matter than he screws around. It doesn’t matter that he’s rude. It doesn’t matter that she can’t trust him alone on a film set and she has to drop everything to run to him so he won’t screw around on her again. Jessica Biel is going to get married, damn it. So the InStyle interview reads more like a giant self-justification for why Jessica has decided to marry JT.

Jessica Biel may be one of the most stylish women in Hollywood, but that may be thanks to her fiancé Justin Timberlake. Biel, 30, tells InStyle in its August cover story that Timberlake, 31, helps choose her outfits – and picked out her gorgeous engagement ring without any input from her.

“I had no say whatsoever [in the ring]. I don’t micromanage,” she tells InStyle, on newsstands Friday. “He is fearless in his choices and has a real eye for design. And I’ll be honest: He has better taste than I do.”

Adds Biel, “When I walk out of the closet after getting dressed in the morning, I’ll go like this [turns palms upward as if to say, 'Well?'] And he goes like this [shakes his head no]. Then he picks again. It’s hilarious.”

Fashion feedback aside, Biel says her advice for having a happy relationship is “letting go of the little stuff. You can’t let it get to you.” Plus, being with an inspiring person is key to her happiness. “It is important to me to have a partner who is loving and fun – someone who inspires me,” she says. “And he must be a good person.”

Asked about whether she plans to raise children someday in Los Angeles, where she and Timberlake currently live in the Hollywood Hills, the actress who was raised in Colorado says, “I would like those future little people to have the experience I had, in some capacity. It was fun. I love Colorado; I’ve always thought that could be a possibility for me.”

In addition to being raised in the outdoorsy environment of her home state, Biel says she learned a lot about relationships growing up by watching her mom and dad.

“The best thing I learned from [my parents] is that you have to put your relationship first. You need to make time for your partner,” she says. It’s really easy to let that go by the wayside. It’s easy to say, ‘Hey, I’ll see you later. I love you.’ And you can’t do that.”

Biel finds this especially difficult because of the demanding schedules she and Timberlake have because of their work. “Justin and I have a rule that we don’t let a certain amount of time go by without seeing each other, but it doesn’t always work,” she says. “But from here on out, I want to participate in making smart choices for the relationship.”

Still, it’s important to the actress that she and Timberlake maintain some of their independence.

“In my earlier experiences with relationships, I was really vulnerable to somebody else’s personality, hobbies and way of life,” she says.

“But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become proud of the traits that make me who I am. Maintaining my individuality is really important to me because otherwise I can easily slip into somebody else’s life. So I’m glad I’m getting better at it. It’s a process, but it’s getting simpler.”

[From People]

First of all, don’t you love how Jessica has just completely stopped with the “Our relationship is private” line? That used to be her go-to line whenever anyone asked her “Hey, I heard your boyfriend is trying to dump you?” Or “Hey, is it true that banged Olivia Munn?” Now that she’s engaged, she’ll gush about Justin. As for her self-justification for WHY she’s marrying him – he dresses her like a Barbie doll? He doesn’t trust her style? He inspires her because he’s so fun? And she thinks about raising their babies in Colorado? Yeah, right. I have to ask… were the bangs Justin’s idea? Because they’re awful and they don’t suit her at all.

    Good luck hon

  2. Sisi says:

    I thought she considered herself a fashion girl…

  3. the original bellaluna says:

    Oh, God, make it stop!

  4. Tiffany27 says:

    How does she have on such a hideous outfit on the cover of InStyle?

  5. Memory30 says:

    I don’t think she’s a pretty girl she looks very plain but dang she has an amazing body. And I hater her for that ;(

  6. Kara Ann says:

    I actually think the bangs look good on the In Style cover. For the most part however, I don’t think they suit her.

    As far as her marriage, she’s old enough to know what she’s doing and I hope it turns out well for her. I don’t have the hate on for her that many here seem to.

  7. BNS1987 says:

    This girl has about as much personality as a bowl of cottage cheese.

  8. Nashville Girl says:

    Please make her stop talking.

  9. Ainsley says:

    If Justin picks her outfits, he needs help. She has a great shape but a lot of what she wears isn’t especially pretty or flattering. Maybe he is making her look bad on purpose so he can be the pretty one!?!

  10. Tillie says:

    She is so pretty; those bangs are not. I think it gives her face a masculine look, not cute!

  11. RocketMerry says:

    Top picture – FINALLY someone put some coloured lipstick on the girl! She seriously does NOT look good with nude lips. Her make up artist needs to throw out all his beige lip shades.

    That’s all I got.

  12. Rhea says:

    Of course the bangs were Justin’s idea! :D It has to be some kind of a test from Justin. If she agreed to keep that bangs and let him picks her clothes, he would know for sure that he would get to do whatever he wants in their marriage later on.

  13. lettylynton says:

    She’s sounds like that Samantha Brick woman, in a way.

  14. anonyma says:

    I admire the journalists able to write the entire article about her, who can make the interview without getting into the coma. Her whole world is the fitness, diets, clinging, running and checking in the mirror at what angle the RINg looks less fakeish.

  15. Erinn says:

    Ahhh I had almost her exact hairstyle until recently. Chopped off about 5 inches the other day. Still have the bangs though :P

  16. Little Darling says:

    I don’t know what to do with this one. She seems like such an idiot, that I find myself thinking, is she really saying this out loud in a proud way? Ay. She’s put the women’s movement back a few years with her imbecilic thoughts. Does anyone know if she’s smart? Because I can’t get a grip of her self worth or intelligence in any interview. Beautiful body and face….but…marrying a douche who is full of himself and fills up other women just cannot end well.

  17. sullivan says:

    Bangs are flattering on some people, but she’s not one of them. Sure, she’s boring, but JT is not a prize. She should go back to Colorado and find a nice guy.

  18. Hautie says:

    “And I’ll be honest: He has better taste than I do….”

    Ohhhh… Bless her heart.

    How unfortunate. She will spend her marriage having to say that to her self daily. And know it’s a big fat lie.

    But hey. The girl is determined. She gave up all self respect, to marry a man who has not stopped shagging other women. And probably never will.

    Who has probably forced her to sign a brutal pre-nup. Which she gets nothing when he divorces her.

    And who is hateful to the wait staff in restaurants.

    That is the one thing that bugs me most of all. Timberlake is really deep down an awful person. With no manners.

    No matter who you might become in life. Having no manners just make you look cheap and uneducated. Without a stitch of home training.

  19. clumsyme says:

    Love her shoes, just not with that outfit. I feel bad that she has to justify marrying him to herself.

  20. Gossip PHD says:

    I don’t think they are “bangs”. I think its an awful wig.

  21. Viv says:

    The day you start letting Justin Timberlake make all your style decisions is the day that shows all hope is lost for you. I had thought she had very little personality but this looks like she got personality-minus.

  22. flo says:

    i just learn this girl was been screen-tested to act Catwoman in the Nolan Batman movie:WTF

  23. Jaime says:

    I don’t hate Jessica Biel. There’s not enough out there about her to hate. She just is. There’s nothing endearing or interesting about her. There’s nothing controversial or exciting. She’s just a chick, who’s marrying a dude I had a crush on about 13 years ago, and that’s about it.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      +1. She’s a snooze and a bit of a robot. That’s not offensive though-just meh.

      • Chatcat says:

        I am on the same page…nothing of these two, together or separate, peaks any emotion on my emotion meter.

        Oh and Kitten, I’ve been looking for you this morning…just to let you know, no need for you to lead an intervention for me because I am feeling Matt Bomer…again! I normally don’t recycle, but since Fassy is off the radar right now, and Joe Mang wound up being such a disappointment, I’m going back to the well. White Collar season 4 starts tonight and I do just love this man…great family guy, smart, funny and all kinds of hot! I am a bit jealous of his partner Simon because I think we’d be great together (sexual orientation not withstanding). So Joe can go blow because Matt is back!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Chat-I am so happy to hear this!
        Bomer is a FANTASTIC choice.
        He has beautiful blue eyes, he’s got moves (#magicmike), plus he can probably give good fashion advice and home-decorating tips!

        Joe Mange lost this round.

  24. hoya_chick says:

    “Jessica Biel may be one of the most stylish women in Hollywood”….this is not true. In fact this entire article is not true. Not to be bitchy or anything (ha, who am I kidding?) but this marriage won’t last 5 years.

  25. Green_Eyes says:

    Guess it’s a good thing she’s marrying JT! Because of how accommodating she is the the Co$ just might have trolled for this wanna be doormat to be TC’s newest wife. Tom could even jump up and down in glee because he could even pick out her outfits;)!!

  26. Izzy says:

    Ugh. This poor young woman. Someday she will have to face the reality of her now-fiance’s true nature, and it will NOT be pretty.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Izzy, or she’ll be one of THOSE women. The one’s who settle for the trappings of a finer life, minus the emotional contact they need.

      (above, I meant make her stop talking – at least out loud, to other people) ;)

  27. birdie says:

    I was hoping you cover the other part of the interview, which I think is much more interesting. She says she learned how to be more of an individual in a relationship and how she doesn’t disappear in the other ones lifestyle anymore.
    I mean.. it is interesting that she says exactly what I am thinking about her realtionship. She changes her personality for her man and becomes dependent (is that a word?) on him. Just live in your denial, Jessica.

  28. Nanz says:

    I used to feel nothing but indifference for her. Now I actively dislike Biel because of her endless interviews wherein she talks out of both sides of her mouth: ‘I’m stronger, more independent, an individual! But I let my FIANCE choose my clothes because I have no taste and HE KNOWS BETTER.’ Gawd, she’s tiresome.

  29. Black Pearl says:

    I kinda ℓi̶̲̥̅ke̶̲̥̅ both JT and JB but I dont really see them lasting as a couple. I’d kill for Jessica’s body though

  30. Lotta says:

    I really like her, she seems nice. I also think she is one of the two most beautiful actresses in Hollywood (Jolie being the other one).

  31. Thea says:

    Is she just plain stupid? I mean really. Is that not the dude who wore triple denim to some function? And is almost illiterate in conversation? And bi on the downlow? I mean seriously. It is like saying Kim Kardashian is a role model for feminism.

  32. Esther says:

    She really does seem to have any self worth or self identity, she is so wrapped up in him that she is setting herself up to get hurt and it’s really sad. I think he will eventually get tired of that and the relationship will go completely sour.

  33. HappyJoyJoy says:

    This woman is a bag of yawns and xanax.

  34. Jordan says:

    Wow, he sounds about as controlling as Tom Cruise. I wonder if they will have a similar contract as Tom/Katie.

  35. Emily says:

    I already knew Justin Timberlake is a cheater who is rude to waitstaff and who thinks the sun shines out of his butt. I didn’t know before that he’s also controlling. Dressing your fiancé like a Barbie doll and giving her “no say whatsoever” in her engagement ring? This man is disgusting!

  36. Cam S says:

    I love this girl’s healthy body type. But to me she is just sorta “beige”.

    Samantha, Sex And The City (after she had caught Richard cheating): “This is exhausting. Richard, I love you- but I LOVE ME MORE”

  37. lolypop says:

    Why feel sorry for her? If he was some random guy she would never let herself be treated that way but he is what keep her relevant and gives her access to the big parties. He might be a cheater but she is a famewhore.

    • Julie says:

      totally agree. its not like he suddenly turned from amazing guy to giant cheating douchebag. she knows, we know. her problem.

      i dont know why obviously calculating women get sympathy. i feel a little sympathy for katie holmes because i hope that her divorce will damage the Co$ but other than that, her fault, everybody in the whole world knows about tom cruise. if you marry such a guy you already made the decision that money and fame are worth it to put up with someone like that.

  38. dizzy says:

    “He has better taste than I do”…It can’t be because she looks really bad on the red carpet very often.

    “Biel says her advice for having a happy relationship is ‘letting go of the little stuff. You can’t let it get to you.’”

    Cheating isn’t exactly “little stuff”. This just makes me sad. She thinks so little of her self-worth.

  39. skuddles says:

    Jessica, my cat has better taste than you do…

  40. barb says:

    Other sites say that JT is gay. So, is this true, and why is she marrying him then?

  41. erika says:

    I like her look, she looks very mid to late 1960s ‘it girl’ mod-ish, the thigh skimming mini, bangs, v. cool/mod/London 60s chic…

    she is BORING as Hell though…I cring whenever she’s in a movie, she’s gorgeous, but BORING…

  43. Chris says:

    “He’s has better taste than I do”

    Nice backhanded compliment. :)

  44. Kosmos says:

    I saw an earlier pic of Jessica, around the time she and Justin began dating…her hair was lighter and looked amazing…she can be very attractive with the right hair style, but BANGS are not working for her, Ugggggggggggg. I love bangs on the right person, like Taylor Swift and others, but with Jessica, it covers up her beauty. She actually is very attractive with high cheek bones. If you can find an early pic of her in shorter, lighter hair, you’ll see what I mean…

  45. Jill says:

    Her body is OH YEAH!!

    Her face is oh….
