Jessica Biel: Falling in love “hurts so good”


Jessica Biel is the cover girl for the July issue of Glamour Magazine. Predictably, the magazine climbs up her ass and stays there for the duration of the interview. Take this part of the introduction: “How is it possible that most of us know so little about this everywhere woman? It has a lot to do with the fact that Biel, 28, is so private about her relationship. (“I want to keep that answer to myself” is her polite response when asked if she’s in love, despite the breakup rumors.)” Oh, isn’t she just the cutest thing? The interview is pretty boring, honestly. When Biel isn’t pontificating about what a hindrance her beauty is, or how she’s the second coming of Meryl Streep, reading her interviews is like watching paint dry. I guess the interesting stuff is mostly what she says about relationships and how they “hurt so good”.

GLAMOUR: Who taught you the value of money?
JESSICA BIEL: My parents—they are frugal. My dad worked really hard for us.
GLAMOUR: I wanted to ask: Your parents have had a very long and happy marriage. How does it impact your outlook on coupling?
JESSICA BIEL: Well, I think I just watched. My role models were two people who were always kind, loving and supportive of each other, not to say that they are perfect, because nobody is.

GLAMOUR: They were enthusiastic about each other.
JESSICA BIEL: And also very realistic. You make a choice every day to be there. It’s not a fairy tale.
GLAMOUR: What surprised you most about falling in love? Because I don’t think what love feels like to a 16-year-old is what love feels like to someone who’s 23, 29 or even 40.
JESSICA BIEL: It is different. Does it make sense that [younger people] can’t imagine how much it hurts?
GLAMOUR: Absolutely.
JESSICA BIEL: It hurts so good. Does that make sense?
GLAMOUR: Sure. How do you stay solid when you’re romantically linked to a big star? Because his thing is no small thing. How do you maintain your thing alongside his?
JESSICA BIEL: I guess I would say my thing is just as wonderful. And that’s the only way—when you each have your own world and it’s just as great.

GLAMOUR: Now let’s talk fashion.
JESSICA BIEL: I’m not someone who has this amazing instinct about fashion. Sometimes I cannot be bothered, kind of like today. [Biel is wearing a gray T-shirt, J Brand jeans and Roger Vivier flats.] I just throw on whatever is comfortable. Other days I will torture myself—do I want to do funky and cool, or feminine?
GLAMOUR: You’re a tomboy.
JESSICA BIEL: Yeah. I literally spent most of my teenage years in Umbro shorts and No Fear T-shirts.

GLAMOUR: Tell me about your A-Team character, Charisa Sosa.
JESSICA BIEL: She’s incredibly motivated and driven. She’s a hard-core adrenaline junkie. She’s just as smart and able as the guys on the A-Team. She’s their equal.
GLAMOUR: It’s not a romantic part, and you seem like a romantic. So it’s a whole other side of yourself.
JESSICA BIEL: Well, I’m also an adrenaline junkie. I’m a romantic adrenaline junkie!
GLAMOUR: That could be your personal ad: “Romantic adrenaline junkie seeking…
JESSICA BIEL: [Laughs.] …walks on the beach and jumping out of airplanes.”
GLAMOUR: And in the movie you shoot guns? Any complicated feelings about that?
JESSICA BIEL: I had this really sexy 9-millimeter Beretta, and I trained a lot with an M4 machine gun. Before, I felt very scared of guns. But you learn about them and then you feel capable, and it becomes an empowering experience.

GLAMOUR: What’s been the toughest choice that you made in your life?
JESSICA BIEL: [Leaving college] was one. I do still have a desire, a pang in my heart, when I think about it and the fact that I didn’t spend my four years with my friends. I didn’t stay with my friend Hayden in our apartment—I bailed and she ended up living with some random people. I still feel bad. But then again, I’ve had wonderful experiences.

Eh. Why does Jessica Biel force us to play this game? Are we really supposed to think she’s in a successful relationship with Justin Timberlake? I don’t. I think/know he’s cheating on her with random go-go dancers, and those are just the girls we know about. Maybe they have an open relationship, but I’d be willing to bet that “open relationship” is all about Justin wanting to find a way out of the relationship and Jessica being a clingy dishrag. But, whatever. It’s her life, it’s her business. It just amuses me when she’s asked about her relationship with Justin like they have a “successful” relationship in which she can give advice to couples who are struggling.

    I don’t believe she’s straight, let alone actually in a ‘relationship’ with JT.

  2. cedar falls says:

    “Hurts so good”? Urgh, I just threw up a little…

    On a positive note, a magazine has put an actress on it’s front cover without airbrushing her so much she looks like an alien. Plus I have a grudging respect for her as the only actress this century to play an action heroine whilst actually looking like she’d be of some use in a physical confrontation (Blade Trinity).

  3. kia says:

    This chick must be legally blind if she looks in the mirror and thinks her mangled face is “beautiful”. I’m sorry but her lips look like a baboon’s ass, and her nose is WAY too small for her freakish cheek implants. It is so gross when she smiles, she has no upper lip, it’s just nose and lip touching. Ugh. Who the hell is telling this dog face that she’s hot? Don’t we have enough unwarranted self-importance in this world, why are we telling ugly chicks that they’re hot? Yes, she has a good body but that face requires a bag and perhaps even some kind of gag to shut her the hell up. Why is this nobody even on the cover of ANY magazine? WTF?

    Also, those teefs look like she could eat an apple through a picket fence with no trouble. They look like nicer Billy Bob buck teeth to me.

  4. Kevin says:

    I don’t get a feeling that she is gay. Now Elton John? Let’s just say he rocks the piano but he sucks on the organ!

  5. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ kia:
    YIKES! I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that you DO NOT like Jessica Biel. LOL!

    It pisses me off when a (in my opinion) beautiful girl feels that she’s only important and relevant if she is ‘with’ a man. It would be so nice to see a confident, self-assured woman whose life is not defined by the man that she has enslaved herself to. (MOST of the men don’t appreciate it, anyway!)

  6. snowball says:

    I just remember what a pain she was when she tried to get out of her exclusive 7th Heaven contract by posing for those provocative pics and was it Spelling(?) wouldn’t let her out, he just made her do bits and pieces of eps here and there until her contract expired. And I thought it was funny. 😉

  7. missmilly says:

    @DoMaJoReMc– you are so right on!

  8. daisy says:

    I agree with Kia.Why anyone would think she is even pretty is beyond me.Her personality makes it worse.Looks wise,she is one ugly,mangled,phony.I just watched a movie with her in it,and I couldn’t stand to look at her.Sorry,I think she is over-rated.:)

  9. asiont says:

    boring and masculine.

  10. lem says:

    @kia you sound bitter and jealous. seriously, all that post did was show how ugly you are.

  11. original kate says:

    i don’t think jessica is as pretty as she thinks she is.

  12. I just don’t. I just can NOT get her. I don’t get it. JT, go back to Brit-Brit, make a baby destined for disney greatness, get old remaking your hits together – or don’t. Whateve – just drop this piece. PLEASE!

  13. skibunny says:

    She’s pretty until she opens her mouth.

  14. kimbo says:

    @cedar falls, Dont forget stealth!

  15. Beck says:

    i think she is gay (not that there is anything wrong with that.) maybe she is bi and they have an open relationship. i just don’t buy their relationship.

  16. Kelbear says:

    @lem, Your are exactly right!

  17. Bobby the K says:

    She has nice breasts and they’re trying to make her look flat!

  18. Strawberry says:

    Man, the hate on this post! She has some serious guns. What movie was I watching the other day and all I could focus on was her absolutely mental arm muscles…

  19. Strawberry says:

    Ah, Valentine’s Day. Crap movie do not netflix it!

  20. L says:

    Is she talking about it hurting so good in a physical way sometimes? Because I can get on board with that…. but I am deeply in love with my boyfriend and no way would I describe the way it feels as hurting so good. I can’t relate to that.

    Oh and P.S. I am in adult love, not in teenager love. Ha!

  21. connie says:

    despite all the hating i think these pictures of her are actually pretty flattering. im not much of a fan (considreing her body of work could be called limited at best) but i think she looks pretty

  22. Sharonkings says:

    Wow this is the best Ive ever seen of her! Makeup looks good.

  23. gen says:

    I don’t get the hate for her. I must be missing something. And if the LONG relationship she’s in is really a fake & they’re both gay, um Hello Jessica!!! *Wink wink* If Justin isn’t gay though, Hello Justin!!! *wink wink*

  24. jover says:

    I agree Kia she is just not all that there are many top models way more attractive than her. John Cougar Mellencamp had a song from the 80s including the line hurts so good. She has as much depth as the mascara on her lashes and the interview was boring. Are there no interesting young starlets that can actually hold a conversation that isn’t contrived to create controversy or self-absorbed? I’m tired of boring celebs vamping on the covers of these mags – oh, for the days of Christie Brinkley, Iman, Linda Evangelista, Paulina Porizkova, etc. Now they were worth looking at not overrated deadly dull Jessica Biel.

  25. maritza says:

    I don’t agree with those who say she is not pretty because she is pretty and she has a great body too. It’s nice to know she likes to keep her private life private.

  26. Leek says:

    She is too beautiful to even successfully allow us to read the interview. All I could do was sit in awe of her stunning face. As a matter of fact, I have to keep scrolling up and down just to write how beautiful I think she is.

  27. hottathanholywatta says:

    over rated, no-talent having, generic herme. That. IS. All

  28. My2Cents says:

    For all you saying she is ugly – your comments shows who is the UGLY one and its definatley not Jessica. Her body is amazing and her eyes are to die for.

    She beats most chicks I see in the street by miles in the looks dept.

    Im gay and I freaking HATE it when people say someone is gay as a slur against them. It so offensive to ME!

  29. DetRiotgirl says:

    Jessica has a great body, but her face doesn’t quite do it for me. It’s her nose. It looks so unnatural that it’s distracting.

    Her body is fantastic though! She makes me want to hit the gym. I think she really works hard to look that good. I’m pretty sure she bought parts of her face. But, those arms, that stomach and that butt? That is all down to hard work. So, I will give the girl credit for that.

  30. Siren6 says:

    I don’t really get the hate, but I don’t really get the attraction either. How can anyone feel that strongly over someone so bland? She’s utterly forgettable. I couldn’t name 3 worthy roles she’s been in if you paid me.

  31. Michelle says:

    She sucked in Valentine’s Day, I’ll tell you that. And The Illusionist. But critizing her face like that is a bit mean :/

  32. Slymm27 says:

    @kia, honestly i wish you would just pop that baby out 2moro, cause you are starting to sound a bit crazy and vile in all your posts!

  33. Jami says:

    Ugh, don’t get how anyone can think she’s pretty or attractive at all. Ugly, boring, over-rated famewhore and TERRIBLE actress.

  34. henny says:

    it’s glamour….

  35. adel says:

    She has nice eyes nice body although I feel justin can do b better but we don’t know how she stimulates her. I don’t find her pretty but its my opinion.
