Jessica Biel - whose relationship with Justin Timberlake has been under recent scrutiny - thinks she is ''too boring'' to be considered a great actress
Jessica Biel thinks she is "too boring" to be a great actress.
The 'Illusionist' star - who is dogged by rumours that her relationship with Justin Timberlake is in trouble - believes she is too grounded and leads too much of a normal life for people to have a high professional opinion of her.
She said: "I might just be way too boring to ever be a really great actress."
When told great actresses can having boring lives but great stars "kick up dust everywhere", the actress told Vogue magazine: "I don't do that. Maybe I should do a little bit more of that. A dust kicker-upper might be kind of fun.…"
Jessica also spoke out about posing near-naked for Gear magazine aged just 17, admitting she was "terribly embarrassed" about the pictures and her parents' outrage.
She said: "I really wanted to go to college, and it all kind of happened at the same time. I did this photo shoot; the photo shoot came out; it was terribly embarrassing. I had to apologize to everybody, including my parents. It was a big learning experience: learning how to have boundaries and how to say no."
As a result of her experiences as a child actress, Jessica, now 27, says she feels motherly towards other young stars.
She said: "I have this overwhelming motherly feeling toward them. Just do what you gotta do, girls! Hold it together! I wish everyone would just leave them alone."
