Perks of married life continue to come easy for Jessica Biel.

After recently telling Ellen DeGeneres that the “most wonderful thing” about being Justin Timberlake‘s wife is getting to call him her “husband,” the Hitchcock star, 30, tells Elle magazine in its January issue that she simply appreciates “having someone … to share the ups and downs [of life] with [and] have adventures with.”

What kind of adventures? Biel likes having “someone to go swimming naked with – that kind of thing,” she says.

Another upside to being Mr. Timberlake is benefitting from her man’s culinary skills.

“He bakes pies,” Biel says. “He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie … and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank god. Otherwise, it would be a big problem.”

Unfortunately for Biel, though, the ultimate perk of being just married no longer exists.

“Honeymooning is the best thing about being a newlywed,” she explains. “I wish I could honeymoon forever.”
