Jessica Biel is on the February cover of Vogue US wearing Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 and photographed by Mario Testino.
She talks about her style crush on Rihanna and about keeping schtum over her relationship with singing star beau Justin Timberlake.
Here are some extracts from the interview but you can read the full article at Vogue.com
On the rumors of rift with Justin Timberlake: “It’s definitely been weird and sort of bizarre to deal with. But you have to have a sense of humor about the whole thing. Honestly, I look at a magazine and they know more than I do…I don’t feel the need to clear anything up. It’s the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don’t care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I’m not going to. It’s mine. And I really like that about it.”
On coveting Rihanna’s style: “I like really überfeminine, classic-looking things mixed with something rougher around the edges. I’ve been looking at Rihanna a lot, checking her out. She’s got something going on that I am sort of craving a little bit.”
On her co-star Jennifer Garner: “She’s incredibly girly and warm and open—all of the things she seems to buck against when she’s looking at roles. The first scene that I did with her, she was drunk in the scene. It’s hard to play drunk, not to overdo it. But she did it in such a subtle, real, kind of pathetic but very, very deeply funny way. I was, take one, totally impressed.”
On being a character on the red carpet: “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.”
On the film industry during the recession: “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. What is getting produced, are 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.”
