Is Jessica Biel Too Good-Looking to Get Roles?

Jessica Says She's Too Pretty to Work — Refreshing or Ridiculous?

Jessica Biel is on the cover of June's Allure to promote her upcoming film Easy Virtue. Getting the role was apparently hard for her, as she told the magazine that finding work in Hollywood "really is a problem" due to her beauty. She compared herself to other young actresses like Scarlett and Natalie, saying, "I just want an opportunity. If you don't like the audition, then don't hire me! But if you don't want to even see me — that's hurtful." It would be one thing if Jess complained about being stereotyped due to her high-profile relationship, but it might be a little far-fetched to complain about being too beautiful in a town full of gorgeous women. So, tell us — are her comments refreshing or ridiculous?

This is ridiculous, and it's bothered me since I saw the Today show confirm what she said. She has a reputation for being difficult to work with, so the Hollywood pros who know their business don't want to bother with someone they have no interest in working with or someone who can't pull off what they need. She doesn't have that chameleon-esque quality that all the better actresses have- hello, far surpassing beauty and talent- Charlize Theron in Monster- and she doesn't get anywhere near the box office numbers that Natalie Portman can get. Yes, she's pretty and can act some, but she's simply not all that she thinks she is, so she's her own enemy!

Ugh. I've gone back and forth about this girl - at times I think she's a rock star, but most of the time I find her pathetic and this is one of those times.

Being really beautiful can not be a problem, look at Charlize Theron. Then again, Charlize is very talented. There are quite a few young, attractive actresses around with a broader acting spectrum than Mss Biel, she's just not the first name that pops up with the casting agents and producers. She is not a cult figure, not Oscar material and not a box office hit. But she still gets to live the good life, so with a little humility and patience she may grow and get there after all.

I can't stand this girl, and she is so ugly

I honestly don't think she owns a mirror. Maybe if she bought one, she would realize that she's actually NOT THAT PRETTY. She is, however, arrogant.

Maybe she'd get better roles if she got acting classes and became a little (or A LOT) more humble.

I have read the article and no where does she say she is too beautiful to get work. She stated her looks have been labeled too modern to play romantic comedy and therefore doesn't get a chance to audition. That is probably true although I can admit she isn't a great actress I find it irritating to see Pop try to spin an interview in a completely different way to get a reaction.

I wonder what she actually said in the article. I feel like they may be misquoting her a bit. The only direct quotes from her they used didn't actually say anything about her being too beautiful. They added in 'due to her beauty' but we don't actually see that she said that. If she really said that then why wouldn't they put in a direct quote from her saying that she was too beautiful?

Hate to break it to her, but there are TONS of more beautiful and far more talented that have no problem getting a job. And if a role is made for a "uglier" or older actress, they can "ugly" them up with makeup. I think she's in denial over how mediocre her performances in films are.

Truesay that she's never done anything to really prove her acting abilities but I think what she meant to say is that her looks restrict her to certain types of roles and prevents her from being considered for others - but like others have said, maybe she should stop doing so many provacative men's mags then (I feel we have gone over this with Alba before!)
