Jessica Biel: If Justin Timberlake Wants to Bring Back His Earrings, I'm Cool With That

04/11/2014 at 12:36 PM ET

Jessica Biel knows a little something about jewelry — after all, she’s been wearing it since she was too young to remember.

“I got my ears pierced when I was three,” Biel, 32, told PEOPLE at the 2014 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book party in New York. “I don’t know why my mother did that at such an early age. It’s really not synonymous with her style to do something like that, but I’m glad she did.”

But despite her early start, The Truth About Emanuel actress, who wore a plunging black Oscar de la Renta dress and a Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace and earrings from the jeweler’s Blue Book collection, says it took her a long time to get into fancy jewelry.

“I didn’t really have anything of value for a long time. I bought myself my first pair of diamond earrings when I was a freshman in college,” she said. “That was a big deal. Before that, I grew up wearing lots of friendship bracelets. That was my favorite accessory!”

And she sees no reason why girls should have all the fun with accessories — she’s even down for husband Justin Timberlake to rock all the bling his heart desires.

“He wore earrings when he was a teenager, but I haven’t seen him wear them in a long time,” she says. “He can wear whatever he wants. He looks good in anything! If guys are confident and it’s who they are and they’re not putting something on just to be cool, I say go ahead, wear them. Good for you.”

Wow, let’s talk about how jealous and bitter Renee is of Jessica Biel! Dang, what are you doing on the Internet anyway? Shouldn’t you be hunting down and eating the goats trying to cross the bridge you live under?

ronah on

men with earrings. no.

Renee on

Wow, look at Guest with their celebrity worship who obviously can’t fathom problems happening in the real world! About as dumb as Biel

guest on

What did she say that was so wrong? Renee seems to be picking at nothing because she doesn’t like Jessica Biel. Grow up.

Star on

Renee you’re an idiot. Why are you even posting on a celeb site if you hate celebs you sanctimonious see you next Tuesday.

Guest on

Lol at people completely missing the point of what she was saying. Basically she doesn’t care what he wears as long as he’s doing it for himself and it makes him happy and comfortable. Was it really that hard to comprehend ? She didn’t say anything wrong people are just looking to get mad

Rose71 on

If he likes it and makes him happy, why Not ??? That’s ok, yes!

Zeze on

Zzzzz…can I get that 12 seconds of my life back?

Tina on

She has horrible style horrible. I’m surprised she’s not rocking parachute pants and a Madonna vest
