She’s played everything from a distressed publicist to a noblewoman on the big screen, and now Jessica Biel is looking at a completely new role in real life: housewife.
“To me, nothing will really change, because I’m almost never home,” the Total Recall actress, 30, tells the French magazine Gala in a translated interview. “But when I am home, I enjoy cooking.”
Some specialties she might serve up to soon-to-be husband Justin Timberlake?
“I especially love making cupcakes,” she says, while admitting that when she attempts to customize recipes, “it’s a total disaster, but I’ve also had some pleasant surprises, like recently when I managed to make zucchini fritters.”
Overall, once they tie the knot (possibly over the summer), “I don’t think our marriage will change anything,” she says. And while that may turn out not to be true, she does think “it will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I’m ready.”
She also describes herself as “someone who lets things happen naturally,” saying she is not sure if she wants to have a child right away.
“For me, getting married doesn’t mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it’s an opportunity to explore new things in life, ” says Biel.
And while fans may ogle Timberlake’s good looks and hot moves, for Biel, there are three distinct qualities she finds admirable in her future husband, 31: “The ability to communicate well … to be able to express his feelings. Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty.”
First of all, I don’t know how this girl says that she’s almost never home, because according to her Twitter, all she does is hang out with her dogs and bake (no judgement, you guys, just jealousy). And I’m glad she’s saying that she’s not going to try to get pregnant immediately after the wedding. I’m still not convinced that these two need to be getting married in the first place, but if they’re going to regardless, and it looks like they are, then at least they’re not planning on an immediate baby, I guess.
Also, that last bit, the part about the three qualities she admires most about Justin? “The ability to communicate well … to be able to express his feelings. Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty.” Am I reading way too much into that, or does something about that quote make it seem like she’s fighting against all those cheating rumors? Either way, I kind of just want to give Jessica a hug after all this.
