Jessica Biel 'raised by hippies'

Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel confesses that she had an "attitude" as a sassy teenager.

The stunning 30-year-old Total Recall actress felt awkward at times growing up.

Jessica didn't get along with her peers very well.

"As a teenager, I never really fitted in at school. I was never the cool girl. I'm still insecure in certain situations and I guess that's part of my nature," she told British newspaper The Sun.

"A lot of it was my own insecurity and some of it was jealousy on the part of some other girls in school. It was hard for me sometimes. I was a nerd and then I kind of developed an attitude about everything.

"I told myself that I was going to show people what I can accomplish."

Jessica has always looked to literature to ease her anxiety.

"I like being able to write when I find the time to get into it," she said. "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."
