Jessica Biel: ‘No one will hire me because I’m hot.’

The Superficial / May 19, 2009

Why can’t Jessica Biel land a role in a decent film? She’s too beautiful, that’s why. Us Magazine reports:

“Yeah, it really is a problem,” Biel tells the June issue of Allure magazine. “I have to be blunt.”
The actress — whose latest film, Powder Blue, (in which she plays a stripper) is going to straight to DVD — isn’t handed plum roles.
“I’m in there with everybody else, fighting for the good parts. Yes, The Illusionist has made a difference — but a huge, massive difference, so I can pick and choose what I want? No.”
Biel, 27, covets the careers of Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.
“I just want an opportunity. If you don’t like the audition, don’t hire me!” she says. “But if you don’t want to even see me — that’s hurtful. And why? You know nothing about me!”

I want to see you. I want to see you all kinds of stuff. I want to see you so much, I want to see me seeing you see me, and then – wait, hold up. Did that just say a movie where Jessica goddamn Biel plays a stripper went straight to DVD? How does that even happen? Actually, fuck it. I’m moving to Sweden. Next post from the fjords, kids.
