Who Is Jessica Biel
We all remember her on 7th Heaven as the sweet older sister gone bad, but Jessica Biel has left her goodie-two-shoes tomboy days behind and lights up the screen as a sexy siren.
American actress, Jessica Biel, has a ballpark figure worth of $20 million dollars as of 2020.
The Preacher’s Daughter
A theater junkie and model by the time she was only nine, the young Jessica Claire Biel had star potential written all over her. But growing up with her mother, a spiritual healer, her father, an entrepreneur, and a younger brother wasn’t easy. The family didn’t have the conventional roots they needed, moving at least five times during Jessica’s childhood. But they finally landed in Boulder, Colorado where Jessica joined a theater group while also taking time out for some snowboarding on the side. But it wasn’t straight acting that Jessica was into—she trained as a vocalist for musical theater roles in productions like The Sound of Music.
Breaking into the entertainment industry, Jessica began modeling and landed commercial and print campaign spots with the likes of Pringles and Limited Too. But it was an audition for a pilot that landed the 14-year-old a gig that would make her a part of a squeaky-clean TV family. 7th Heaven, following the lives of a reverend, his wife and his seven children,began filming in 1996 and ran for 11 seasons. Fans got to watch Jessica grow from a tomboy to a rebel to a mature older sister.
Breaking Out Of The Mold
While still maintaining her regular character in the Camden house, Jessica filmed her first feature film in the 1997 flick Ulee’s Gold. It seemed to audiences like the budding actress had it all but Jessica didn’t agree. She believed that she was typecast as the good-girl who couldn’t step out of her preacher’s daughter role. This was most apparent when she was shot down to play the lead role in American Beauty—a role that later went to Thora Birch. With a rejection upset not far behind her, Jessica decided to take things into her own hands by posing nude on the cover of Gear magazine, her hands barely covering her breasts.
Speculation arose that 7th Heaven producers and network execs were less than thrilled with Jessica’s racy cover and her presence on the show was drastically cut, although she would stick out the remainder of her contract. But Jessica did go on to land roles in The Rules of Attraction (2002), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Blade: Trinity (2004). If there were any doubts about Jessica’s inability to play a bolder, sexier role, they were erased with her newfound siren image.
Things got more serious for Jessica when she was cast as the Duchess Sophie von Teschen in The Illusionist alongside acting greats Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti. Her performance in the film landed her accolades among industry critics. However her luck with legitimate roles quickly faltered with critical flops like I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (2007), Powder Blue (2009), Valentine’s Day (2010) and The A-Team (2010).
Hitting The Jackpot
But Jessica really landed a spot on the A-Team when she started dating singer, actor, comedian and heartthrob Justin Timberlake. After a slew of relationships with actors including Ryan Reynolds and Derek Jeter (which sultry actress hasn’t he dated?) Jessica seemed to settle down with Justin in 2007 , but the painfully attractive twosome sadly split in early 2011. Fortunately the couple made it back together and eventually tied the knot in 2012.
The fresh-faced beauty (who admits that her good looks are actually a double-edged sword when it comes to casting) is no stranger to Hot 100 lists (she often tops them), but she’s still the girl next door—just with better clothes and hotter boyfriends.
Defining Quote “As much as I hate auditioning–it’s so hard and awkward–it’s way better to walk out of that room and win a role because of what you did.”
