Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s Working Relationship Is Giving Us Major #RelationshipGoals
The Devil and the Deep Blue premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this week and its producer/star Jessica Biel was on hand to talk about her uber-pregnant working experience. As well as what it was like being hubby Justin Timberlake’s boss.

That being said, Biel doesn’t deny it was an “unusual working experience. I really had this kind of natural mama bear, like I want to go home and nest my world,” she told Refinery29. “You really do go through that thing where you just want to be home like knitting things, doing weird things that you would never do. At the same time, I really wanted to be on set because this was our baby.”
Towards the end of the shoot, however, Biel confessed she simply “couldn’t think about being on my feet any longer and trying to remember my lines and also be calm for my body. I see why women don’t work in that capacity when they are really, really pregnant, because it’s a lot of strain on the body and mentally weird.”
Another unusual (but totally dream-worthy) aspect of this project? Becoming Timberlake’s boss as he assumed the role of composer. The 34-year-old beauty joked about taking advantage of her power, but was quick to note there was absolutely no micromanagement from her part.
“He speaks another language than we do,” Biel gushed. “It’s like math. He’s like doing math equations back in the back room.” That statement alone is giving us major #RelationshipGoals.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
