Jessica Biel of 'Easy Virtue' fame says that she believes that the only way that she can think of that might possibly advance her career would be to play the male lead in a movie, because they always get the better storylines.
She said, "I think it's almost historical in Hollywood that there just aren't so many good parts for women as they are for men. I think as long as you're playing the wife or the girlfriend to the lead then you're always playing second fiddle to the guys".
Jessica added however that although she is "thankful" for the opportunity to star in films that she is under no illusion as to how she managed to succeed in Hollywood.
"Your face and your body
can get your foot in the door, obviously. And I'm thankful for that".
