Jessica Biel -- Carter Smith
"That's one that I wanted so badly," the actress tells the magazine. "I was in the middle of shooting 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre,' and I auditioned with Ryan Gosling in my trailer -- covered in blood. [Director] Nick Cassavetes put me through the wringer in an interesting, excitingly creative way. But there's a million that get away."
Still, the "Valentine's Day" star admits that there are times when she dreams of doing something else with her time. She even has a back-up career choice. "I'd love to write," the brunette beauty says. "I wrote a lot of short stories and poetry when I was a kid. That was my creative outlet. I've written a short film, and I [still] write poetry."
For now, Jessica is trying to enjoy her role in Hollywood -- which shouldn't be too difficult! The former "A-Team" actress has five movies listed in "post-production" on IMDb, including a remake of the sci-fi film "Total Recall," with Colin Farrell. "The other day, Colin and I were in our harnesses, hoisted up 30 feet in the air looking down ... the adrenaline rush of that was explosive. We hit the bottom, looked at each other, and burst into giggles. That was an I-love-my-job moment."
