Jessica Biel likes to 'say she's the boss' with husband Justin Timberlake

Husband and wife team Jessica Bieland Justin Timberlake have been working together on a new film called The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. And while Justin oversaw the film's music, Jessica plays a major role as both one of the stars and also producer on the drama.

Opening up about their working relationship, Jessica, 34, admitted that she likes to think of herself as her husband's boss. Laughing, the actress said: "I mean, I like to say that I was his boss, but I wasn't really acting as his boss. So we had a good working relationship."

Jessica added that she didn't have to "micromanage" her husband. "He's much better left to his own devices," she told Entertainment Tonight.

The Minnesota-born beauty also spoke about finding the balance between her Hollywood career of acting and producing, and being a good mother to adorable Silas, Jessica and Justin's one-year-old son.

"I just want to continue doing it all," said Jessica. "It's fun. I mean I know it's hard and it's getting harder because you have to split your time and find that balance but I just so enjoy finding these stories and creating something that I have more of my stamp on as opposed to just giving a performance and crossing my fingers and hoping for the best."

In the new film Jessica plays Penny, a woman who is killed in a car accident. Her husband Henry, an introverted architect, sets out to help Millie, a homeless teen played by Maisie Williams, build a raft to sail across the Atlantic.

She was supported by her dapper husband Justin, who recently declared his love for his sweetheart in a birthday message. "I can't put into words what you mean to me… You are the GREATEST Mummy and Wife a man could ever ask for. I love you to the MOON AND BACK!!!" Justin wrote on Instagram last month.
