Jessica Biel has been out promoting her new PSA’s for WomanCare Global to educate women (along with Funny or Die) on reproductive issues. But of course the the talk sis stop at Jessica’s own baby, Silas with husband, Justin Timberlake. “[It’s] incredibly hard, the hardest job in the world and I’ve never been more thankful and grateful to my own mother. Oh, my gosh I’m going to call her right after this actually and just thank her. What you have to do for your kid — it’s an amazing responsibility and the biggest joy ever.”
Biel dished on her PSA initiative after realizing she didn’t know much about reproduction.”This was really personal for me,” Biel said on Today. “A couple of years ago, when I was thinking about starting a family and I started to, you know, realize, ‘OK, well now you have to get off birth control and what happens? How exactly is it gonna go?’ I just started to realize I had absolutely no idea, really, what my cycle looked like. I never knew and I was embarrassed and I didn’t want to tell my friends, I didn’t want to tell my mom and then I started talking to people and I realize nobody else knows.”
“And it was this real awakening, this moment of, ‘Oh my gosh, we have a real kind of problem going on here. There’s such a lack of education and such a huge amount of misinformation that comes to these issues, women’s reproductive health issues, and it’s just staggering what we haven’t been taught!”
