Born on March 3, 1982, in Ely, Minnesota, Jessica Claire Biel grew up alongside her younger brother, Justin (born 1985) between Texas, Connecticut, and finally Colorado, in Boulder. As a child, she dreamed of being a singer and trained hard for roles in musicals. Her stubbornness paid off, and by the age of nine, she was performing in such classics as The Sound of Music, Annie, Beauty and the Beast. Then, at the age of 12, spotted by an advertising agency, she took her first steps in the business with commercials, notably for the Pringles brand.

At the age of 14, she started casting and very quickly, Aaron Spelling offered her the chance to play in his new series, Sept à la Maison. For ten seasons, she became Mary, the eldest of the Camden girls, a rebellious teenager who wanted to become a stewardess. The cinema begins to attract her and so she decides to accept other roles in parallel. She made her debut in 1997 with L’Or de la Vie by Victor Nunez alongside Peter Fonda. A year later, she took advantage of a break during the shooting of Seven at Home to shoot Arlene Stanford’s Sacred Santa Claus. In 2000, Jessica Biel graduated from the French high school in Los Angeles. The following year, she played Freddie Prinze Jr.’s love at first sight in Michael Tollin’s comedy Hot Summer.

In 2002, she played a wild bimbo alongside James Van der Beek in the adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ sulfurous novel, The Laws of Attraction. Her athletic physique then allows her to play a series of roles: she plays, in turn, in the remake of Marcus Nispel’s thriller Chainsaw Massacre (2004), in Blade: trinity (2004) where she has to face the vampires, then in the stealthy blockbuster (2005). In 2007, she appeared in two films with radically opposed genres: The Soldiers of the Desert, where she plays a soldier returning home after fighting in Iraq, and The Illusionist, a fantasy film about magic, alongside Edward Norton. 2010 and 2011 mark her return to successful comedy: she is in the cast, successively, Gary Marshall’s Valentine’s Day and Happy New Year where she shares the poster with Robert de Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Zac Efron.

On the heart side, Jessica Biel was in a relationship with actor Chris Evans from 2001 to 2006. In early 2007, she met singer Justin Timberlake. After a short separation in March 2011, the couple got engaged in December 2011. In October 2012, Jessica and Justin got married in the fishing village of Salletri on the Adriatic Sea. In November 2014, many rumours are circulating on the web…the glamorous couple is expecting a happy event in April 2015! At the end of January 2015, Justin Timberlake officializes the news by posting a picture of Jessica Biel’s belly on Instagram. On April 11, 2015, Jessica Biel gives birth to a little boy named Silas Randall. On July 19, 2020, the Daily Mail announces that the couple would have given birth to a second boy.
