As she eases into promotional mode for her upcoming movie "New Year's Eve" ahead of its December 9th release, Jessica Biel finds herself featured on the cover of the December 2011 issue of ELLE magazine.
The 29-year-old actress posed for a lovely Carter Smith shot spread, and while she eluded talking about boyfriend Justin Timberlake, she did open up about topics such as her thoughts on becoming a mother and whether or not she'd ever strip down for another role after her one and only nude scene in the straight to DVD film "Powder Blue".
Highlights from Miss Biel's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to check out ELLE!
On her status with Justin Timberlake:
"A girl doesn't kiss and tell."
On whether she plans to have children someday:
Sure, of course. And, yeah, I think probably at some point it would be something I'm interested in. But I don;t feel pressured. I was never one of those girls who dreamt of my wedding and my Prince Charming. To piss off my mom, I used to say, 'I'm never having kids, and I'm going to be a fabulously rich old maid living in a house with cute butlers and dogs.'"
On the lack of powerful female roles in Hollywood:
"I think lots of roles for women are just not as developed as male roles. That's just the truth. There are some that are incredible. But there are not enough. It's not equal."
On whether she's considered leaving show business:
"Absolutely. I'd love to write. I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry when I was a kid. That was my creative outlet. I've written a short film, and I write poetry."
On whether she'd go nude for another movie role after "Powder Blue":
"I wasn't so scarred by that experience that I'd never do it again. If a director I trusted came to me with an amazing opportunity and it felt organic, I would do it."
