Reading the interview, translated from a French magazine, it’s hard to tell whether Biel is excited about the wedding. She’s probably just reticent because there are rumours she’ll marry within a few weeks, following this weekend’s engagement cocktail party catered by Wolfgang Puck and attended by mutual friends Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Trace Ayala, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia DeRossi and Amy Adams. On the night, Biel wore “a leopard-print halter dress cinched at the waist with a hot pink belt and matching shoes.” A source tells Us Weekly of the event: “Jessica and Justin were mingling both separately and together throughout the party… Jessica seems to be very close with Justin’s friends and vice versa. You can see that they have been dating for a long time and really know each others friends and family well. The party was a fun celebration and a preview of what’s to come with the wedding.”
And now the 30-year-old pontificates about married life as a series of milestones, not an end game.
“To me, nothing will really change, because I’m almost never home,” the actress, 30, tells the French magazine Gala in a translated interview. “But when I am home, I enjoy cooking.”
“I especially love making cupcakes,” she says, while admitting that when she attempts to customize recipes, “it’s a total disaster, but I’ve also had some pleasant surprises, like recently when I managed to make zucchini fritters.”
“I don’t think our marriage will change anything,” she says. “It will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I’m ready.”
She also describes herself as “someone who lets things happen naturally,” saying she is not sure if she wants to have a child right away. “For me, getting married doesn’t mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it’s an opportunity to explore new things in life.”
There are three distinct qualities she finds admirable in her future husband, 31: “The ability to communicate well… to be able to express his feelings. Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty.” - via People Magazine.
