Jessica Biel: Justin Timberlake Is 'The Most Precious Thing In My Life'

Jessica Biel covers the February issue of Vogue and inside she avoids discussing her relationship with Justin Timberlake because it is the most precious thing in her life. Last summer rumors circulated that Biel and Timberlake had broken up, and that Timberlake was seeing Rihanna--whose style Biel now professes to admire.

Here are some quotes from the interview and you can read the entire thing here:

On her relationship with JT:

"I don't want to talk about it," she said. "I don't feel the need to clear anything up. It's the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don't care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I'm not going to. It's mine. And I really like that about it."

On her style:

"I like really uberfeminine, classic-looking things mixed with something rougher around the edges. I've been looking at Rihanna a lot, checking her out. She's got something going on that I am sort of craving a little bit."

On posing nearly-nude for Gear magazine at age 17, which released her from her '7th Heaven' contract:

"I really wanted to go to college, and it all kind of happened at the same time. I did this photo shoot; the photo shoot came out; it was terribly embarrassing. I had to apologize to everybody, including my parents. It was a big learning experience: learning how to have boundaries and how to say no."
