The actress, model and producer Jessica Biel is an absolutely stunning woman. She is definitely one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and has been voted as the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine in 2005. She was also voted as the sexiest woman by various other magazines and publications in the years that followed. However, despite all of this Biel has remained grounded - “My definition of sexy is not just using what you got from God, but also that you represent what you believe in. I don’t want people to think I’m sexy for what I look like, I want them to find me sexy for who I am and what I do.”
When Biel was a child, she trained to be a vocalist and appeared in a number of musical productions such as The Sound of Music and Beauty and the Beast. She then went became a model when she was just 11 years old.
Biel was only 14 years old when she was cast as Mary Camden in the famous TV series 7th Heaven. However, it was only in 1997 that Biel got her first feature film role. The role was in a film called Ulee’s Gold and it earned her her first film award - a Young Artist Award. After her role in Ulee’s Gold, Biel began getting more and more roles in various films which eventually led her to international fame and recognition.
20 Facing The Camera Directly
There is no doubt that the actress, model and producer Jessica Biel is a stunning woman. In fact, in 2005 she was named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine. The magazine did a six part picture series over five months, each month revealing a body part and a clue to help its readers guess the identity of the “Sexiest Woman Alive.”
What did Biel have to say about that? Well, she said – “It’s not my plan or whatever in my life to be a sex symbol. It never is. You are who you are, but you can’t help what you look like. And when you do a film, like for me, it’s just not about that. I would prefer to downplay it. I prefer to downplay the sex appeal.”
19 Beach Body, Walking Forward, Head Turned Back
Biel has an absolutely amazing body but she works hard to keep herself slim and fit. She exercises regularly and she eats healthily. Her efforts clearly don’t go to waste. She looks fabulous in every single picture.
So what does Biel eat? She has said that she loves eating a Paleo diet – “Eating Paleo just leans you down and slims you up and takes that little layer of fat and water-weight right off your body.”
But she doesn’t overdo it either! Biel allows herself one cheat day a week – “When I’m working and I eat healthily all week, then I give myself one day – usually Sunday – when I eat just what I want. You have to; otherwise, your mind goes a little nutso.”

It may be hard to believe but Jessica Biel’s sexiness sometimes gets in her way. She was voted the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine in 2005 and has appeared in similar lists afterwards. However, it turns out that being sexy is not always good for one’s career.
In 2007 Elle interview Biel confided that her “sexiest woman” label was actually hurting her career. She said – “[One director told me] I’m not looking for the sexiest woman; I’m looking for the girl next door.” Biel has also said – “Parts I really want aren’t going to me. Like The Other Boleyn Girl with Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman. I don’t want to say that there’s nothing I love that I can’t have. But there’s still the occasional script that the director doesn’t want to see you for.”
17 From The Back
You have to admit that Jessica Biel has a great sense of style. She always wears clothes that fit her perfectly and she somehow manages to look effortlessly cool. It’s obvious that Biel knows that she has to look good whenever she is out in public. There really aren’t many photos of Biel looking unattractive.
When asked about her style, Biel has said – “I like really uberfeminine, classic-looking things mixed with something rougher around the edges. I’ve been looking at Rihanna a lot, checking her out. She’s got something going on that I am sort of craving a little bit.”
16 Looking Up From Her Salad
Jessica Biel definitely has a fun side to her. She posted this photo of her playing with the spoon on her Instagram page and captioned it as – “When you only have five minutes to eat during a photo shoot, this is a very professional thing to do for at least half that time.”
Of course, just as you’d expect, people quickly responded with concern over her lunch choice (soup and lettuce), saying things such as –“Are you eating plain lettuce & soup? #anomuch” and “I mean look at what she has to eat. I’d be playing with the spoon too.”
15 Looking Back At The Camera
Jessica Biel is probably still the sexiest woman alive, or at least one of the sexiest women alive. She always looks fabulous – she is fit, her clothes accentuate her body and her skin is glowing. Plus, she has a beautiful smile.
Biel’s skin is beautiful and that’s probably because she likes to wear light makeup. Biel has said – “I do like to go bold sometimes, but I don't like to do that during the day. During the day I like to be practical and to wear something that's not going to fade so I can go to a business meeting and still look professional but not over the top.”

It wasn’t just Esquire magazine that named the stunning Biel the “Sexiest Woman Alive”. Plenty of other magazines, online publications and forums consider the beautiful actress to be extremely sexy. In fact, in 2007 the magazine Stuff placed Biel as number one on their “100 Sexiest Women” list.
Biel has once said in an interview that she doesn’t care about being a sex symbol but also confessed – “Being Sexiest Woman Alive didn’t just open all the doors for me, which I thought it would. I thought, ‘This is going to be huge for me!’ And it really wasn’t at all.”

You can’t deny that the stunning actress has a beautiful smile. And she often shows it off! It’s quite hard to find a photo of unsmiling Biel. Biel doesn’t seem to be at all irritated by paparazzi constantly snapping her picture.
How is Biel so well-mannered, you might wonder? Surely, she must get tired of all the paparazzi and the unwanted attention. After all, who wants to be constantly followed around? But there’s an explanation! Biel has said – “My grandmother, whom we call Biel, thinks it’s very unbecoming of me not to smile for the paparazzi. So every time I see them, I think ‘Smile for Biel!’”

Biel has a stunning body – it’s skinny but also curvy. In other words, Biel’s body is very feminine. The actress has confessed that she likes to keep fit for her job and that she tries to eat healthy. All of this no doubt helps her stay in shape.
Biel has said that she is really into yoga – “I like to do a couple of yoga classes during the week. Yoga for me if more of an elongating thing.” But she likes to vary her exercise routine – “I concentrate on making everything strong and you can’t do that with just cardio. I strength-train one day – and I’m not talking heavy weights, just a little. I see my trainer one day, next day I take a yoga class.”
11 Muscles Flexed
Recently Biel shared an amazing photo of her muscular arms on her Instagram page. She captioned the photo as – “Join me and @TheUSO as we honor and support our servicemen and women! I hereby nominate @theRock to join in on the #gunshow #Flex4Forces.”
Instantly, people responded with comments such as “What’s your arm workout regiment? I want mine to look like that!”, “Love your arms since 7th Heaven days!” and “Girl POWER!!!”
It is obvious that Biel takes her physical health very seriously which is an inspiration to women all over the world. Her physical strength also helps her when it comes to her more active roles in film.

This photo proves that Biel looks stunning from every angle. Biel uploaded this photo on her Instagram account and captioned it as – “Chilling on a peaceful Sunday... Yeah right! I’m sleeping with my eyes open while my kiddo wanders around nearby. #momlife”
Can you believe that Biel is a mom? She and her husband, Justin Timberlake, have one son, named Silas Randall Timberlake, together. Biel gave birth to Silas in 2015 and Biel wasted no time in losing the baby fat she put on during the pregnancy. Nowadays, she looks as stunning as ever, unlike some other celebrities in Hollywood who were not able to lose the weight they gained during pregnancy.
9 Lying On The Sofa
There is no arguing that Jessica Biel is extremely beautiful. It is no wonder that at one point the stunning actress was voted the “Sexiest Woman Alive”. Biel is also constantly included in the sexiest and prettiest women lists.
However, believe it or not but even Biel is not fully satisfied with her appearance – “Everyone has areas they’re not comfortable with, and mine are my bum, thighs and legs.” She also said that there’s a lot of pressure in Hollywood to look a certain way – “There is so much pressure to look a certain way in this town. But it’s nice to have a little meat on you, and I hope I inspire women to appreciate their muscular calves.”
8 Tasting The Rainbow
The photo above showcases Biel’s fun side once again. She posted the photo on her personal Instagram account and captioned it as – “Taste the rainbow...” It’s great to see that the stunning actress has a fun side to her personality and doesn’t take herself too seriously.
Even as a child, Biel was a fun and creative child. In one interview she recalled how she created a unique Christmas tree decoration when she was a child–“My Barbies were usually naked. Once, I took their heads off, cut their hair, drew on their short, spiky hair with some markers, then stuck the heads on Christmas lights. Every year, we’d string our tree with those Barbie heads. It looked demonic. My parents were so cool – they saw it as a form of self-expression.”
7 Classy Profile Shot
Jessica Biel looks absolutely stunning at every premiere she attends. Her clothes are always perfect for her figure, her hair looks beautiful and shiny and her makeup is on point. And, she is always smiling.
However, while it may appear that Biel put in no effort in her appearance (because let’s be honest, she has that effortlessly chic vibe going on) she has actually thought through the whole evening. Biel has said – “In the car on my way to premieres and awards shows, I’ll sit with tissue paper under my armpits so I don’t soil the delicate dress fabric. The whole time, I’m telling myself, ‘Please don’t sweat, please don’t sweat.’ I throw the tissues out right before I step out of the car, and nobody ever knows! I just put on a smile and fake it.”
6 Reading A Book
Who else but Jessica Biel could look so good while casually reading a book? Biel put up this photo on her Instagram and captioned it as – “Is your book club distinctly lacking suspense, mystery and psychological f*ckery? Then pick up #TheSinner by Petra Hammesfahr from @penguinbooks. You won’t be disappointed!”
You might wonder – why is Biel promoting The Sinner? Well, apart from it being a good book, it is also what her new project, USA Network’s eight episode murder mystery, The Sinner, is based on. Biel is both the executive producer of the series as well as the lead character.
This is another photo that was posted by Jessica Biel on her personal Instagram account. The photo basically advertises her new murder mystery TV series, The Sinner. Biel is both the executive producer and the lead character of the series.
The series has been long anticipated but has received mixed reviews. Biel plays the main character, a woman named Cora Tannetti who seems like a normal wife and mother but who murders a complete stranger on a beach in front of witnesses.
Biel has said that she was really keen on playing Cora ever since she read the bestselling book The Sinner by Petra Hammesfahr on which the TV series is based.
4 Red Carpet Stare
It’s quite obvious why Jessica Biel was named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine in 2005. She is extremely beautiful and clearly looks after herself. You can tell that she eats healthily and that she exercises regularly.
But in a recent interview Biel has said that while it may seem like she is perfect, she isn’t really – “I’m not a perfect person who doesn’t mess up, eat bad, not work out – I do all those things. It’s just for the most part, when I’m working, I don’t feel like I have a choice. I have to bring my A-game.”
3 Open Back
It is fascinating how Jessica Biel always manages to look absolutely perfect on the red carpet. She certainly knows how to carry herself and how to dress up for the event. Biel always comes out looking stunning in the red carpet pictures so you’d think that she loves appearing on the red carpet.
However, it turns out that that is not the case. Biel is not a big fan of the red carpet – “On the red carpet, I’m playing a character. As soon as I get off that thing, I think ‘Oof, wipe that gloss off.’ I’m wiping and wiping and pulling my hair out and trying to change my outfit. I’m immediately trying to get comfortable. It’s really a part I play.”
Jessica Biel has a body that no doubt many women all over the world envy. However, Biel works very hard to keep in shape and to maintain her appearance. She exercises almost every single day and eats healthily, only allowing herself one cheat day a week.
However, Biel loves physical activity. And she loves to challenge herself. She has once said – “I love the discipline. I love the schedule of pushing your body to an extreme and getting it to a particular type of physical shape. Learning a new self defense or some kind of martial art that I didn’t know before and the loving of that is also hating that at the same time.”
1 Looking Down From Reading A Book
Not only is Jessica Biel an extremely beautiful and sexy young woman, she is also very talented. She has won numerous awards for her film roles, including Young Artist Award, Newport Beach Film Festival Award, Gala Award, and GLSEN Respect Award.
On top of that, she clearly likes to read! Her Instagram is full of photos of her reading. The photo you see above was also posted by Biel on her personal Instagram page.
The caption under the photo reads – “I’m celebrating #WorldBookDay by ignoring my to-do list and getting completely lost in Lauren Belfer’s And After the Fire.” Sounds like a great way to spend the day!
