London, July 31 Actress Jessica Biel, who is engaged to Justin Timberlake, says writing poems helps her stay in touch with her spiritual side.
“I like being able to write when I find the time to get into it. I love reading poetry and I have written poetry myself since I was in school,” thesun.co.uk quoted Biel as saying.
“It’s very calming and spiritual to be able to get in touch with emotions and states of mind to write poetry,” she added.
The 30-year-old also loves spending time outdoors, which she believes stems from her upbringing.
“My father was always told me to go outside and appreciate nature. I was raised by hippie kind of parents and the wild and open spaces were something I was taught to value. I had a really great childhood and I still love being outdoors and having a healthy respect for nature,” Biel said.
