BIEL’S PARTY PASS
When it comes to the see-and-be-seen scene, Jessica Biel is no Lindsay Lohan. Or Paris Hilton. Or Jessica Simpson for that matter. “I’m just not that person. There are too many lines and crowds,” says the actress, 24, who stars in the drama The Illusionist. “If I do go to a Hollywood club, I know what I’m getting into—I know the paparazzi will be there and I conduct myself in a manner I’ll be proud of when I walk out.” So how does Biel spend a typical evening? “Hanging out with my dog, having a barbecue. Or at the crappy little bar around the corner—having a fish taco.”
THREE QUESTIONS FOR … STEP UP’S CHANNING TATUM
1. DID YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS ABOUT STARRING IN A DANCE MOVIE?
There was only one scene where I had to wear tights. That was a plus.
2. WHAT KIND OF PROFESSIONAL TRAINING DO YOU HAVE ANYWAY?
I learned to dance at quinceaneras—big birthday parties for Spanish girls. It was always funny to bring the white guy out [on the floor] and let him look like a fool.
3 WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS BACK HOME THINK OF YOUR SUCCESS?
They think as soon as you do a movie, you get invited to the Playboy Mansion. I’ve never been to the Playboy Mansion.
PINK dishes on …
Her marriage to motocross racer Carey Hart: Right now he’s snoring next to me. We don’t get much time to relax. Our average morning is get up, ride the dirt bikes and feed the dogs. We like the home stuff. I’m a faithful Law & Order rerunner.
Kids: Yes. But right now, we feel like babies. We’re irresponsible and have too much fun.
Plastic surgery: I find it so much more interesting to work with what ya got.
Her current tour: A guy came out and proposed to his girlfriend. I told them, “If you ever get divorced, you’ll still always think of me!”
Winning an AOL award (for being the singer instant messengers most want on their buddy lists): It’s cool—it looks just like the little AIM guy.
Mel Gibson: I’m a fan of his work. I think anybody with opinions like that needs well-wishing. And I’m Jewish. Alcohol makes you do some crazy things.
