She is known for her on-again-off-again relationship with Justin Timberlake almost as well as she is for her acting. While she is busy attending premiers for Valentine’s Day, we think she is worth getting to know better.

Like many Hollywood regulars, Biel got her start not with acting, but with song and dance. Known to have a very good voice, she fell in love with singing at a young age, and took a liking to musical theatre. As she grew up, Biel became more interested in modelling. Posing for several print ads, she made her foray into acting with a Pringles commercial. As they say with Pringles, “Once you pop, you can’t stop,” and Biel became involved in acting for the long haul.

After auditioning for several shows, she was cast as Reverend Camden’s eldest daughter Mary in the WB show 7th Heaven. Little did she know how big this show would become. In fact, the show ran so long that Biel had to request to the writers to have smaller parts so she could take a break and attend college. Though she was mostly written out of the show, she made a few appearances until the show’s end in 2007.

Moving onto the big screen, Biel was involved with many action-packed films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blade: Trinity and Stealth. Though by this point she was nothing less than well known, her breakout role undoubtedly came when she acted opposite Edward Norton in The Illusionist. This film solidified her seat as one of Hollywood’s leading ladies.

Off screen, Miss Biel stays busy. Besides making her stage debut in Guys and Dolls last year, she recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for clean drinking water for African children. Even with all of this excitement, she is definitely happy to be in the year’s biggest rom-com so far. “I’ve never gotten to do romantic comedy like most of the girls,” she lamented. She looks sickening gorgeous in the movie, even hotter than the other Jessica, and not many people can beat Alba in the looks dept. We say ditch Justin and get yourself back on the market, you are smokin’!
