Jessica Biel For W Magazine April 2012

Newly engaged Jessica Biel dons a Louis Vuitton swimsuit on the cover of the April 2012 issue of W magazine.

The rest of her editorial shot by Mikael Jansson sees her wearing Gucci, Prada and Miu Miu.

She talks to the mag about the first-ever movie she remembers seeing, how she got her start in acting and her girl-on-girl action in her new movie, ‘Total Recall’.

Head over to for the whole interview, or check out the extracts below.

On the first movie she remembers seeing: “The Goonies. I never identified with girls, and the cast was all boys. Girls were nervous about going into caves; they were scaredy-cats—and I wasn’t into that at all. I loved the idea of being with a crew and having an adventure. I was really interested in pits full of snakes.”

On how she got her start in acting: “When I was 11, I was in a competition sponsored by the International Modeling and Talent Association. You paid a certain amount of money and they taught you to walk a runway, present a comedic monologue, a dramatic monologue, a dance routine, and a song. My runway look was a one-piece bathing suit, a top hat, and a bow tie. The competition was in L.A., and afterward I got a manager and an agent. I tried out for a billion things, and after three years, I was cast on the show 7th Heaven.”

On whether she was a rebel during her teen years: “I cut my hair supershort and dyed it blonde. I had to apologize to Aaron Spelling [the producer] for doing that. He wasn’t happy. When I turned 17 or 18, a really obnoxious friend sent a stripper to the set. I had to apologize for that too. The show was all about family values, and they took that position seriously. I was always apologizing.”

On her girl-on-girl action in ‘Total Recall’: “Fun—so fun! Our fight scene isn’t overtly sexy: just two trained fighters who happen to be women kicking the shit out of each other. It could be two dudes, but we just happened to have long hair and boobs and…other things [laughs].”

    i love her.. she is gorgeous and always seems very down to earth.. i mean come on, it is a sweet interview- hate it when celebrities always have to bring a chock factor to everything they say- that just seems desperate to me……
    she looks good!

    The Goonies was NOT an all boys cast.

    love the clothes, don`t like her at all, she`s a bore and she`s not even a good actress.. Her and Jessica Alba.

    The 50s/60s thing has been done to death in editorials of late. I wish they’d come up with something different.

    Jessica is pretty, but she sure gives a boring interview doesn’t she?

    I quite like this photoshoot.

    Ugh another girl claiming to be “one of the guys.” Jessica, January Jones, and all you other “tomboy starlets” out there, how about not slamming your own sex once in a while.

      Yes, I agree! Not to mention that these same actresses often objectify themselves in overtly sexy shoots…

    Gorgeous cover. She looks wonderful. Love the voluminous hair. Not loving the sleeping pics

    I find this girl to be so incredibly boring. The clothes in the spread are alright but I don’t really see whats special about her.

      +1 The clothes are a bore, too

    • Linda March 13, 2012 at 14:45 #

      I hate to say it, but I totally agree. She doesn’t hold any interest professionally for me either.

      • Laura Brice March 13, 2012 at 20:27 #

        ditto, 100%

    • Laura Brice March 13, 2012 at 20:27 #

      She has no X-factor

    • Carolina Roq March 14, 2012 at 02:05 #

      She is a very boring and uninteresting person.
