Jessica Biel Does Marie Claire UK

Actress Jessica Biel is Marie Claire's December 2008 cover girl. In the issue Biel talks about being a movie star, music, aging, marriage and kids. Here are some tidbits from the interview...

Jessica on posing for photographers: “It’s taken a few years to feel comfortable doing that sort of stuff. Even now I still feel sort of ridiculous.”

Jessica on music: “I like all that fun music, lots of old-school stuff and yes, some Whitesnake. Absolutely.”

Jessica on becoming a movie star: “I never thought to myself, ‘I’m going to do this musical, then I’m going to be a movie star.’ I never made that jump. For a very long time I wasn’t thought of as anyone with any credibility in the film world. Everyone is tramping through the swamp everyday in this business.”

Jessica on working in TV: “I was really up tight, when you work on television for a long time you’re in a really organized situation; in film, it’s so much more improvisational and relaxed.”

Jessica on how she feels about aging: “I don’t know - I better start figuring it out. I feel my knees changing – like, why do I have this pain when I’m running on the treadmill? What’s going on with my lower back when I wake up in the morning? I just feel changes. I’m definitely fearful in a very vain manner about aging. I think its freaky weird to look at a picture of your grandmother when she was a young woman then look at her now.”

Jessica on plastic surgery: “I’m really afraid of blades on my face. That freaks me out beyond belief. I would way rather have wrinkles than some slice up going on.”

Jessica on her high profile status: “It’s hard. The hardest part of this whole wonderful, bizarre lifestyle and profession. You have to be Zen about it, because it can make you crazy.”

Jessica on marriage and having kids: “I kind of go back and fourth about marriage and kids. I feel like if it’s an organic way for me and the right time in my life then yes. If it’s right, it’ll be right – but at this moment, that seems totally foreign.”
