Apparently everyone hates Jessica Biel? The Daily News says “Face it, Jessica, Hollywood just isn’t that into you.” I thought that was a reference to the film He’s Just Not That Into You (a film which Jessica Biel seems like she would have been in but actually, she was not.
The Daily News explains:
“Being married to Justin Timberlake is her calling card at the moment,” the insider tells Confidenti@l. “There is nothing extraordinary about her, like Carey Mulligan or even Amy Adams, so she’s not on the studios’ radar unless they’re love-interest roles.”
One agent we talked to suggests that “she should get an acting coach and do an independent film or two that would show off her talent, not her beauty.”
Biel’s reps did not return calls for comment.
I strongly suspect the reason they did not comment was the whole “you were writing an article about how much people hate Jessica Biel” thing.
You know, normally when things like this come up, I’m like “people who don’t like Keira Knightley are just bodysnarking!” or “Anne Hathaway is great!” but honestly, I’ve never been that crazy about Jessica Biel? It’s solely a factor of not being able to think of any movie that she’s been in that I’ve loved, I’m sure she’s delightful in person, and she and Justin Timberlake seem like they’re a fun couple.
Anyone love her? Why?
