In the December issue of Elle, Jessica Biel complains about Hollywood’s inability to recognize her talents and give her the roles she deserves. Over the course of the article, she complains about not one but two roles she wanted that went instead to Anne Hathaway: Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises and Fantine in Les Miserables. As you know, this is clear evidence that Biel hates Hathaway’s guts and wants to have her murdered. So what if she doesn’t mention her directly?
Via Page Six:
Biel recounts that she desperately wanted to be Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s Batman tale, “The Dark Knight Rises.” The actress thought she’d have a leg up since she dressed as the feline villainess in a scene in “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry” in 2007. But the role went to Academy Award nominee Hathaway. “I was gutted. I mean, to work with Christopher Nolan in that kind of a role…” Biel said trailing off.
Biel says, “I felt terrified when I auditioned for ‘Les Miserables,’ the movie that Tom Hooper is doing. I was terrified to sing in front of him. I auditioned for Fantine and I sang ‘I Dreamed a Dream.’ I didn’t get it. And I would have loved it.”
First of all, having been in I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry will not help you get a part in anything cool, as well it shouldn’t. Second, I think she just told us the reason she didn’t get Les Mis; she got nervous and fucked up the audition. But what lie does she tell herself about why she doesn’t get parts that enables her to sleep at night?
The Elle interviewer didn’t ask, but a few years ago, Biel told Allure that she wasn’t getting good roles because she’s too pretty (no, really). “It really is a problem, I have to be blunt,” she said. Funny how that isn’t a problem for Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, or, I don’t know, any successful actress ever. Taken together, this information can only mean one thing: Jessica Biel thinks Anne Hathaway is stealing parts from her because she is uglier than her. Presumptuous!
