Life is all roses for actress Jessica Biel.
The movie star has two movies opening Friday, and, in a new interview with Elle magazine, the 30-year-old says married life is blissful.
“It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar…to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with,” the actress said.
Biel even revealed the flirty side of being a Mrs.: ” Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing.”
The actress exchanged vows with singer Justin Timberlake in front of 100 friends and family on October 19 in a lavish Italian ceremony.
Soon after, photos of Biel’s unconventional pink wedding dress were featured in People magazine.
Posing in a number of stunning photos for the January issue of Elle, Biel told the fashion magazine that the dress was just her style.
“I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuschia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink.”
“It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream,” she said.
Biel, who told People that she will take her husband’s name, went on to reveal that the wedding was just the beginning of newly wedded bliss.
“Honeymooning is the best thing about being a newlywed,” she told Elle. “I wish I could honeymoon forever.”
The normally media-shy star has been making the rounds promoting not one, but two, films out Friday, “Hitchcock,” and “Playing For Keeps,” in which she plays the love interest of matinee idol Gerard Butler.
Biel also has the holidays to look forward to. Earlier this week on “Good Morning America,” she told ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas she’s looking forward to spending her first Christmas as a Mrs.
“I think we’re pretty much going to do the same thing that we do every year. Hang out with our family and be very mellow,” she told Vargas.
The actress plans on decorating the tree with her old tongue-in-cheek family heirlooms — Barbie doll heads.
“I’m using the old ones I mutilated a time ago,” she told Vargas. “They’re all still in the box. My family has kept them these years. And it’s a silly thing we do.”
The full interview in Elle magazine hits newsstands Dec. 18.
