Jessica Biel and Colin Farrell Bonded Over Poetry
Posted by Adam
JESSICA Biel has revealed she and Colin Farrell bonded over poetry when they were filming new movie Total Recall.
“Colin really likes poetry and I’m a bit of an amateur poet myself,” she said.
“He was telling me all about different poets he likes. He would let me borrow a book and I would look at his poetry book over a week and then I’d pass it back and we’d talk about which poems we liked best.
“When you have to have chemistry with somebody you’ve just met the best thing to do is find one thing about them that you really like – whether it’s that he’s kind or really funny or a good chef.
“It’s something that you grab on to and you make the basis for your fascination or obsession or passion for that person whom you really don’t know at all.
“I like being able to write when I find the time to get into it. I love reading poetry and I’ve written poetry myself since I was in school.
“It’s very calming and spiritual to be able to get in touch with emotions and states of mind to write poetry.”
Biel — who’s engaged to singer Justin Timberlake — recently admitted she’s always been a tomboy.
“Maybe not tough, but perhaps tomboy,” Biel said when asked if she has a reputation as a tough person.
“I’ve always been that kind of person — constantly playing sports and never really into make-up or fashion, until about five years ago.”
