Jessica Biel - Heaven Sent

Jessica Biel grew up in Boulder, Colorado and made her acting debut in small community theater projects like Annie, The Sound of Music and Beauty and the Beast. By the time Jessica was 12, she was already modeling for The International Modeling Agency! It didn't take long for someone to take notice of Jessica's fresh face and she was soon cast as Mary, on the hit WB show, 7th Heaven.

Jessica Biel - Hollywood Bad Girl

After a few years on 7th Heaven, Jessica was getting tired of being portrayed as a sweet, innocent teen and wanted to move onto more adult roles. Her contract with producer Aaron Spelling stopped her from quitting the show though, so rumor has it that she decided to do whatever she could to violate her contract. At the age of 17, Jessica appeared topless in a men's magazine - but 7th Heaven producers weren't willing to let her go that easily and she continued her role as Mary. Since that shoot, Jessica has said that she never intended to do such a provocative photo shoot and that the people involved took advantage of her young age.

Jessica Biel - Breaking Out of the Mold

Jessica Biel has come a long ways from her days on 7th Heaven. She's made the move from TV to feature films without a beat. Already she's got a ton of great films under her belt like Summer Catch, Cellular and her most recent flick, Stealth. You can look forward to seeing Jessica star alongside Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst in the upcoming movie Elizabethtown, due in theaters October 14, 2005.

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.

    Well I'm not a really big fan of Taylor Swift but if I had to choose I love both because 'shake it off' is for the older teens as well. So its great as she is growing up so is her music
