Jessica Biel graces the cover of Elle’s December 2011 issue. Inside, she discusses the lack of powerful female roles in Hollywood and whether she has ever considered leaving show business, and whether she plans to have children.
On the lack of powerful female roles in Hollywood: “I think lots of roles for women are just not as developed as male roles. That’s just the truth. There are some that are incredible. But there are not enough. It’s not equal.”
On whether she has ever considered leaving show business: “Absolutely. I’d love to write. I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry when I was a kid. That was my creative outlet. I’ve written a short film, and I write poetry.”
On whether she plans to have children: “Sure, of course. And, yeah, I think probably at some point it would be something I’m interested in. But I don’t feel pressured. I was never one of those girls who dreamt of my wedding and my Prince Charming.”
