Jessica Biel Bio

Jessica Biel (Jessica Claire Biel) was born on March 3, 1982 in Ely, Minnesota. As a child, Biel initially pursued being a vocalist, performing in musical theater. At age nine, she appeared in several of  her hometown musical productions, playing lead roles in “Annie,” “The Sound of Music,” and “Beauty and the Beast.” At 12, Biel was discovered and signed by a talent agency. She began modeling for print advertisements, and appeared in commercials for products such as Dulux Paint and Pringles. When she was 14, Biel was cast as Mary Camden, the second oldest child in the WB family drama ’7th Heaven’.

Her television series acting debut with ’7th Heaven’ helped her emerge as a breakout star. But as she grew older, Biel gradually became dissatisfied with her “goody, goody” image on the show. In a show of rebellion, she posed for semi-nude photographs for Gear magazine. The producers of ’7th Heaven’ weren’t pleased as Biel was only 18 at the time. They eventually decided to write her out of the show.

In 2001, Biel appeared as Freddie Prinze Jr.’s love interest in the film ‘Summer Catch.’ It wasn’t until 2003 that Biel saw commercial success when she starred in the horror remake ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.’ The next two years, Biel starred in action films ‘Blade: Trinity’ and ‘Stealth.’ Biel’s other notable films include ‘The Illusionist,’ ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry,’ ‘Valentine’s Day,’ ‘The A-Team’ and the remake of ‘Total Recall.’

Biel has appeared on many ‘hot’ lists and was named “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine in 2005. She dated actor Chris Evans for over four years. Biel is currently engaged to singer and actor Justin Timberlake.
