jESSICA BIEL has one person to thank for calming her nerves on her first major leading movie role - hunky actor FREDDIE PRINZE JR. Freddie, who is engaged to sexy BUFFY star SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR, plays Jessica's love interest in the new flick SUMMER CATCH (2001), and the young actress says he was more than willing to make her feel at ease.
Jessica says, "He was almost brotherly, making sure I was comfortable, okay with the lines, the wardrobe. My nervousness fell away when I realised all the support I had around me. "
And Jessica was so impressed with her co-star, she's holding out for another pairing with the SHE'S ALL THAT (1999) heart-throb. She adds, "I'm hoping there'll be a SUMMER CATCH 2, so we can all hang out together again. " (RGS/LADN/KMW)
