"I feel like I’m constantly being pulled in a million directions,” she said on The Drew Barrymore Show.
Jessica Biel is known for her amazing work ethic as rightly pointed out by Drew Barrymore herself on The Drew Barrymore Show. She is balancing motherhood with her marriage and life in general for that matter. During a very recent appearance on the show, the actor and KinderFarms co-founder, 40, said that she's still trying to tackle the daily grind of parenthood along with handling her career as an actress. "It’s not easy to sort of balancing your whole life,” Biel told Drew, “Trying to be around your kids, and spend time with your partner and friends and time for yourself and also your career. It’s so hard."
When Drew asked how she manages to do it all, Biel admitted "I don’t think I’ve done it well necessarily yet."
"I feel like I’m constantly being pulled in a million directions,” she continued. “And I think I do that thing where I’m like, ‘It’s all great!” And inside is like a crazy turmoil of ocean waves crashing and I’m freaking out about trying to figure it all out."
Biel is married to Justin Timberlake and is the proud parent of Silas and Phineas. The two tied the knot back in 2012 and have been together for almost 10 years now. Biel said in the interview that the best parenting advice she has ever received is "you cannot do both at the same time."
"When you’re wrestling on the floor, you’re wrestling on the floor. Don’t answer the phone, don’t look at a work thing, don’t text somebody. Don’t do any of it. You are wrestling on the floor. That’s what we do in my household: a lot of wrestling," she said, smiling.
The Candy star and executive producer added that its crucial to keep her kids active in order for them to stay fit which she says is the main reason behind creating KinderFarms, a wellness company that makes effective medicines and products for children, without added ingredients and sweeteners, and artificial flavors.
During another appearance on the TODAY Show hosted by Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, she said that she feels more confident than ever, "It felt like a good movement into a new decade,” she said. "I’m feeling very much like I accept who I am and I feel good and so much more [confident]. I mean, 40 feels good. I don’t know, I haven’t made it any further into this decade so we’ll see if that changes!"
She went on to say that she feels blessed to be in an "incredibly safe" and "understanding" relationship with Timberlake, they both work on their relationship to "keep it fresh" as they step into the second decade of their relationship.
"Justin always says, ‘We cannot stop dating. We have to keep dating.’ And he’s right,” Biel said, adding that being a mother is perhaps the “number one most un-sexy job in the world, for the most part."
