Although Jessica Biel is probably most well known for her beautiful bod and being Justin Timberlake's girlfriend, there is much more to the 27-year-old actress than meets the eye. That's why Biel is so frustrated when she misses out on plum roles that go to Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman because directors find her look to be too modern.

"I just want an opportunity," she states in Allure's June issue. "If you don't like the audition, then don't hire me! But if you don't want to even see me -- that's hurtful." Find out what else Jessica has to say about her looks, marriage, and living life under a microscope.

Is being too good-looking really a problem for an actress?
"Yeah, it really is a problem. I have to be blunt."

On dating a superstar like Justin Timberlake:
"I mean, you love who you love! It's not like you meet somebody one day and say, 'OK, I'm not going to put up with his fame!' or 'Yes, I am going to put up with his celebrity.' You can't choose that. It just happens to you."

On living life in the public eye:
"It's wonderfulto do what I do, but everything that goes with it? It's bizarre. Theinvasion of privacy is very tough. I am followed all day, every day.Going to the dentist, the cleaners. I guess I could look like sh-tgiong to the dentist, but only if I didn't care what I saw in thepapers."

On future marriage plans:
"I have no idea if I want to get married. I have a lot to do, careerwise."

But what about the antique emerald ring all the tabloids claim Justin purchased for her in Rome?
"I bought that ring for myself."
