I’d like to share some thoughts and insights from spending some quality time talking about being an entrepreneur, going into business with family and celebrity life with one of the most beautiful women in the world, Jessica Biel.
First let me get a few answers out of the way in advance that (many of my friends have already asked me and) fans of Jessica Biel might want to know:
Yes, she is spectacular in person.
Two words: Natural. Beauty. She arrived on our set without an entourage or fanfare. She was genuine, sincere and totally engaged, unlike other more self-absorbed “celebs” I have met over the years during this gig and while I was at Universal Home Entertainment. Beyond her supermodel looks, she had a real charisma that pulled me in and her friendly non-existent sense of self-importance impressed me the most.
Yes, she’s a triple threat: brains, beauty and talent.
As you will see in the interview, Jessica is very comfortable in her lane as an actress and seemed to be less comfortable with technology, talking about being an entrepreneur, start ups and the world of business in general. And that’s perfectly okay. That said, my impression of her is that she is highly intelligent and equally talented in her field of expertise.
Keep in mind that Jessie Biel is among a rare breed of humans. I’m not talking about her possible flawless looks. She’s on a short list with people like Ron Howard (Imagine Entertainment) who have managed to have a successful childhood acting career, avoid the vices that often accompany fame and fortune, and make it to Hollywood as a well-adjusted adult and working actor.
I regret not having more time to dive deeper into who helped her stay so grounded all those years. Perhaps it was her parents or fellow actors as she briefly alluded. But in the end it seems like Biel herself has a pretty good head on her shoulders and is laser focused on honing her craft as an actor.
