Jessica Biel Talks Paleo Diet, Yoga Fitness, And 'The Sinner' In Unfiltered Reddit 'Ask Me Anything'

Joanne Eglash

Jessica Biel just delighted her fans by turning to Reddit for a free-ranging "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) that included mocking her husband, Justin Timberlake, dishing on her surprisingly inexpensive choice for staying fit, and hyping her new show The Sinner. Biel was charming in her opening statement, confessing that it was her first time on Reddit and pleading with her online audience to be gentle. And yes, she did manage to get in a plug for her show, announcing that The Sinner airs on USA.

"This is my first time (on Reddit) so be kind. I wanna talk about my new show...but I also wanna talk about whatever's on your mind!"

"Now, I know you're married to Justin, but back in the day were you team Backstreet Boys or team *NSYNC?" asked a fan.

The actress didn't try to fake it, confessing openly that at the time, she was a self-proclaimed "theater nerd" who didn't listen to either group. Instead, Biel had a preference for soundtracks, such as Rent, along with music from the 1950s and 1960s, admitting that she tends to be "a little off" when it comes to following musical trends.

However, Jessica added that now it's clear to her just which group she should have followed.

"If I had been cool, DUH, NSYNC all the way, baby!"

In response, Jessica said it was a "no-brainer," then shared a tweet from actor Seth Rogen in which he compared a photo of himself with his wife and a picture of Biel with Justin.

"You know, I was really nervous when she said this was her first time on Reddit that this was gonna be one of those drive-by celebrity AMAs where only one question gets a decent answer," admitted the fan.

"She's Redditing like a veteran."

E News noted that Biel managed to get in a few comments about her new show, The Sinner, but pointed out that when Jessica was asked about her health and fitness, she offered her fans a tell-all about her diet and exercise routine.

"I go back and forth between yoga and circuit training."

In addition to dishing on her fitness, Jessica served up tidibts about her diet. As a mom with a son, Silas, the actress shared her tips with another mom who sought advice. Known for her clean-eating Paleo diet, Biel admitted that it was easier to follow before she welcomed her son into the world.

"I hide vegetables in eggs, quiche, stews soups, smoothies...I hide vegetables everywhere I possibly can," she confessed on Reddit.

Earlier this year, Jessica told the Los Angeles Times that she aims for a balance in her diet. She noted that she feels better when she avoids gluten, wheat, and dairy, giving an example in describing the family breakfast.

"We'll start off with Paleo pancakes with some cashew or almond butter on top with some local honey, and we like chicken-apple sausage."

In addition to her role as Cora, Jessica serves as executive producer for The Sinner.
