Jessica Biel Jokes About Being Justin Timberlake’s ‘Boss’ On The Set Of Their New Film The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake

Jessica Biel is a Jill of all trades!

Not only is the 34-year-old actress starring in the upcoming drama The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea — she also produced it!

And having that power, Miz Biel was able to bring her husband Justin Timberlake on board to supervise the movie’s soundtrack.

Seems like a logical choice to us!

While attending the film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Fest in NYC on Thursday night, the 7th Heaven alum told ET what it was like working with her pop star beau:

“He’s much better left to his own devices. I mean, I like to say that I was his boss, but I wasn’t really acting as his boss. So we had a good working relationship.”

Ha! We’re sure this project was right up J.T.’s alley!

As far as taking on multiple roles for the first time, Jessica admitted that producing is “so much harder” than solely acting:

“[There are] so many more things to take care of, so many more hats to wear. Problems you have to fix. Normally, [as an actor] you just come to set and don’t have to worry about any of the problems. I don’t have to worry about if the money is there. I don’t have to worry about if the cast is happy.”

Valid point!

And when it comes to being a working mom to the couple’s one-year-old son Silas, the Total Recall star says it’s important to “find that balance” between her passions:

“I so enjoy finding these stories and creating something that I have more of my stamp on as opposed to just giving a performance and crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. To have a little of both worlds has been really cool for me and very fulfilling.”

Who says you can’t have it all?!
