There's a lot of sparkle at the Four Seasons Hotel, and for once, it has nothing to do with the crystal or the lighting. It's Jessica Biel, who redefines the idea of being a glowing bride. Her Oscar de la Renta dress is the color of shimmering gold and it's embellished with hundreds of sparking beads.
Just a little frock for a Saturday morning interview.
I sat down with Jessica to talk marriage, turning 30 and her new film currently in theaters, "Total Recall." Check out our interview below:
Okay, first things first: What have you done to prepare for the wedding?Almost nothing! I'm just enjoying being engaged.
So, you're not one of those brides who gets engaged and goes into full wedding mode?I do feel like there is a lot of time and nothing needs to be rushed. Everyone tells me that being engaged is the really special moment. Not that it gets bad when you get married! But being engaged is just absolutely amazing. You're in this romantic, ahhhhh, breathless moment that I'm just trying to extend as long as possible. (Read: Jessica Biel Had 'No Say Whatsoever' On Her Huge Engagement Bling.)
How do you feel about being engaged to Justin?It's a new stage and a new moment in my life. I'm moving forward. It feels quite inspiring, fun and positive.
You've also just turned 30. Was that an easy birthday or did you pause for a moment?Just to be brutally honest, I think I'm definitely afraid of the aging process. Aging is a scary thing, especially when you're a woman and dealing with everything that comes with it. When I turned 30, I thought, "Oh yeah, I'm going to die."
Die?!At some point! It has come into my mind lately although I've never really been afraid of death. The truth is I wasn't really freaking out turning 30. I never had a complete wig out moment. Honestly, I have never felt more youthful and more curious about life.
