Young Jessica Biel was too shy to be popular with boys

December 11, 2011 - Washington

Jessica Biel has revealed that she wasn't popular with guys when she was young.

The Easy Virtue actress who is in a relationship with Justin Timberlake insists that she didn't get much attention from guys as they mistook her shyness for being ''aloof''.

"I never [got chased by guys] as much as people might think. I'm quite shy, so sometimes guys would find me aloof because they'd think I was acting cool when it was just my nerves," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"It always takes me a while to feel comfortable in social situations or when I'm with new people."

The 29-year-old beauty also admitted that it was not only her shyness, but guys didn't think she was pretty when she was younger.

"I wasn't considered attractive at all as a teenager. I was kind of an ugly duckling.

"But when I did Pilates competitions, I started to work on my appearance and body and was determined to make some of the nasty girls who tortured me feel jealous," she added.
