Jessica Biel struggles to balance femininity and strength
JessicaBiel worries she doesn`t come across as feminine enough.
The actress is dating Justin Timberlake, and is often referred to as one of the most beautiful stars in Hollywood. She is famed for her toned figure and dedication to staying in shape, but admits worrying about the image she portrays as much as the next woman.
Jessica plays Captain Charisa Sosa in action movie The A-Team, which is based on the popular 80s American television show. She was thrilled to win the part as she thinks Charisa is a positive role model for women.
"I play a cool, empowered woman, who I think women will relate to. It`s sometimes hard to get the right balance of femininity and strength but she`s savvy and skilled," Jessica explained. "I wanted to create a character women would be proud of and want to watch. In 2010, we couldn`t have a woman who`s lesser than the men in this movie."
The film also stars Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, Sharlto Copley and Quinton `Rampage` Jackson. The men were welcoming to Jessica, and she found it easy to fit it. She tried her best to joke around with them, which she thinks helped break the ice.
"I probably came in and crushed the boy`s club with girl energy, but they were lovely to me," she told Company magazine. "They tortured me, of course, like older brothers do. But I was loved and cared for and they were very warm and welcoming."
