Jessica Biel Gets Honest About Hollywood For Vogue

Jessica Biel went all-American in Ralph Lauren denim for the February cover of Vogue. Her outfits lately have been a little less glamorous as she finishes her Mt. Kilimanjaro trek, but the Valentine's Day star also got decked out in a sparkly gown for the shoot — check out a behind-the-scenes video. Jessica chatted with the magazine's Jonathan Van Meter about life in Hollywood, as well as her ill-advised early photos and her sexy image. Here's more:

  • On her work in LA: "The last year in this business has been harsh. There’s no material. Nobody wants to make dramas. And that’s what we all want to do. . . [there's only] commercial movies—horror movies, big romantic comedies, and action movies. Those can be great, but you don’t want to do only those kinds of films. You can’t live on éclairs alone. You have to have a spinach salad every now and again."
  • On posing for nearly nude photos at age 17: "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 her va-va-voom image: "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."

So she has no personality? why does she wear those clothes and makeup to the events if she doesnt like them and feel comfortable in them? She has no brain for real.

she sounds incredibly ignorant in this interview. i mean, she's gorgeous, but she always complains about her lack of roles! please! become a better actress!

Nah, she's pretty unremarkable. She looks waaay to Abercrombie for me to take her seriously.

She probably got too much criticism for saying she was "too pretty" to be getting roles. Let's blame Hollywood instead!

I'm confused by the comments about the nearly-nude at 17 pics. First off, I could've sworn that I read a few places that her father was in attendance during the photoshoot for Gear magazine and secondly... For pics that were nearly if not almost nude at 17 (underage), shouldn't she have had a parent there? If so, then they were aware of the pics... Why did she have to apologise to them? I still think those pics were taken as a rebellion against her Mary Camden (7th Heaven) image and both her and her parents were aware of what she was trying to do and why. I guess what I'm really trying to say is that I'm not a fan of Jessica Biel and never will be :P :D

Haha ravenvixen, so true, so true. She's not a very good actress, so that's probably why she wasn't seeing any scripts for Oscar-worthy films. And that second picture.. woah. It totally doesn't look like her - and not in a good way, either.

what in the world is this girl talking about...there was a great deal of good movies (yes, even dramas) out last year...just admit the fact that you're not getting roles you want coz there are far more talented artists than her.

i saw many dramas this year, I have no idea what she is talking about. that second picture of her is so airbrushed, its hard to look at.

not feeling any of her pics...and work is work, drama, horror, comedy - whatever...if she wants to work and she's not making her own movies, she'd better grin and bare it
