Jessica Biel Tells Elle She Almost Starred in The Notebook!
Jessica Biel wore a Donna Karan New York dress for the cover of Elle's December 2011 issue and inside spoke about her aspirations and career. One topic that the actress wouldn't touch on, though, was her on-again relationship with Justin Timberlake. Jessica has been busy shooting both Total Recall in Vancouver and New Year's Eve in NYC recently. Nonetheless, she's had plenty of time to hang out with JT in places like LA and Las Vegas, as well as a few hours for a chat with the magazine. Jessica said:
- On her status with Justin Timberlake: "A girl doesn't kiss and tell."
- On a role that got away: "The Notebook. That's one that I wanted so badly. I was in the middle of shooting Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and I auditioned with Ryan Gosling in my trailer — covered in blood. [Director] Nick Cassavetes put me through the wringer in an interesting, excitingly creative way. But there's a million that get away. We're gluttons for punishment. It's just rejection."
- On whether she would consider 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."
