Jessica Biel has literally grown up in the eyes of the public but has largely remained an elusive and private figure.
In the latest issue of Vogue, however, the actress (who is the magazine's cover girl) opened up to Jonathan Van Meter about why she stays mum on her personal life and how she weathers the tabloid storms.
"It's definitely been weird and sort of bizarre to deal with. But you have to have a sense of humor about the whole thing," Biel said about the constant speculation that she and Justin Timberlake have broken up. "Honestly, I look at a magazine and they know more than I do."
When pushed on the subject, Biel put her foot down, explaining why she refrains from discussing the relationship publicly. "It's the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don't care what anyone says or thinks.
"I have not addressed it in any real way, and I'm not going to. It's mine. And I really like that about it."
