"I felt pretty bad about it, but he's a very strong person and, you know, was obviously fine, but our jobs are weird. Sometimes we do weird stuff at work," the actress said of the co-actor.

But despite her hectic schedule and intense scenes for "The Sinner," Jessica Biel always make it a point to separate work from her responsibility as a mother to Silas and a wife to Justin Timberlake. "I mean, yes, I'm exhausted and sometimes I need like, a glass of wine and to just hang out. But you got to let it go," she confessed.

Meanwhile, the "Can't Stop The Feeling" singer showed his all-out support to his wife's new project ahead of its premiere. In an Instagram post on Monday, Justin Timberlake recommended that his followers should check out "The Sinner" and witness Jessica Biel's "incredible" performance.
