Jessica Biel is the woman of the moment. Hot off the tail of hit television show The Sinner, the 37-year-old has proven herself to be one of her generation’s greatest actresses. But Hollywood aside, there’s a lot more to this Minnesota-born beauty that deserves acknowledging. As well as being married to mega pop star Justin Timberlake, with whom she shares a son, Jessica is a fun, quirky and seemingly down-to-earth person we can all look to for inspiration.
She’s a feminist
Jessica participated in the past two Women’s Marches, and even painted herself purple to acknowledge the movement. She also supports the Time’s Up movement. “Let’s all make this resolution for the year: No more accepting sexual harassment and inequality at work as normal. It’s NOT normal. #TIMESUP“, she wrote in January.
She loves to cook
Both Jessica and Justin have shown their cooking expertise on Instagram, with Jessica taking the cake with a wealth of delicious looking desserts for Thanksgiving. The star also loves to eat, as proven by countless posts indulging in delicious snacks.
She takes the holidays seriously
As well as Thanksgiving, Jessica loves Halloween. She, Justin and two-year-old son Silas dress up for the occasion, going as Poppy, Branch and baby Branch from the movie Trolls in 2016 and Buzz, Jessie and Woody last year.
She’s a sports fan
She may have attended the Superbowl to watch Justin’s halftime performance, but that didn’t stop Jessica from cheering madly from the crowds throughout the game. She and Justin have also been spotted at many basketball games throughout their relationship.
She believes in sustainability
Jessica loves the outdoors, whether it’s snowboarding, swimming or going for a run. Not surprisingly, the star hopes to combat climate change and create a more sustainable environment – something we could all look to.
