This year is set to be a big one for Jessica Biel. The actress will be a first-time mom and will likely continue looking gorgeous, scooping up film roles and will probably be named a “MILF” by some lad mag. Things are going great for Jessica, but in honor of her 33rd birthday, we wanted to take you back, way back, to her 7th Heaven days when we knew her as Mary Camden. Yes, Mary, the b-ball loving tenacious teen who was never afraid to keep it real. Below, a few reasons why we will always love Jessica for her breakout character.
She shared some of our same academic struggles.
She was not afraid to administer a beat down.
Her b-ball skills were impeccable.
She doled out punishment with a firm and swift hand.
She was up for any physical challenge, even while wearing a dress.
She was willing to take a walk on the wild side.
She had no problem facing the cold, hard truths of reality.
She was never afraid to tell it like it was.
…or belt out a tune when needed.
