Jessica Biel’s Transformation From ‘7th Heaven’ to Today: See Photos of the Actress Then and Now

Total transformation! It’s no surprise Jessica Biel is still making headlines after she first starred as Mary Camden in 7th Heaven from 1996 to 2006. 

After the long-running series ended, the actress shed her good girl image in a handful of blockbuster movies, proving she could hang with the best of them in films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blade: Trinity and The Illusionist.

Not only did the brunette beauty propel her career forward by showing off her acting chops in thrillers, but she also took a stab at comedy when she appeared in I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry in 2007. Jessica went the independent film route in 2013, starring in Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes.

In 2017, Jessica’s eight-episode limited series, The Sinner, premiered on USA Network. She also served as an executive producer in addition to playing the lead in the first season.

At the end of the day, the Minnesota native, who shares sons Silas, born April 2015, and Phineas, born July 2020, with husband Justin Timberlake, is grateful she has been in the industry for as long as she has.

“I have so much more appreciation for having work, you know,” she said during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan in 2017. “I am grateful to be working. I think when you’re younger, you don’t have an understanding of how unique this job is and how, you know, rare it is to be a working actor.”

But these days, the happy mom is focusing on her family following the PDA scandal that rocked her marriage. In November 2019, Justin was spotted holding hands with his Palmer costar Alisha Wainwright at a bar in New Orleans.

The “Mirrors” crooner apologized for his actions a few weeks later on social media, and he has made a concerted effort to fix his relationship with his wife. “He knows he’s got a lot of making up to do,” a source told In Touch exclusively at the time. “Being in New Orleans made it difficult — he was so far away from Jessica, but since returning to Los Angeles, he’s been working hard to prove his love and reignite the spark. The way Jessica sees it, actions speak louder than words.”

Following the incident, it seems like the couple is back on track as they were spotted walking arm in arm in New York City with their son in February 2020. The pair looked happy on their stroll through the Big Apple and couldn’t stop smiling and showing affection toward one another.

In honor of Valentine’s Day that same year, Justin gushed over his wife. “Throwback to our first year together. It ain’t hard to tell from my face!!!” the musician captioned a sweet photo of himself hugging the actress. “When you know, you know. I love you, my funny Valentine. Every day [is] the 14th!!! Happy love day, y’all!”

In January 2023, the Candy actress proved she and the 10-time Grammy Award-winning artist were still going strong, penning a sweet tribute to her hubby of more than decade to mark his 42nd birthday.

“Happy birthday to the person who challenges and inspires me every day,” she captioned a pair of cute photos of the couple on Instagram. “The person who keeps me laughing and creating and risking it all. The person who makes the ordinary extraordinary. You know who you are. I love you.”
