Los Angeles, July 12 : Actress Jessica Biel, who is engaged to actor Justin Timberlake, says maintaining her individuality in a relationship is important for her.
"In my earlier experiences with relationships, I really was vulnerable to somebody else's personality, hobbies, and way of life," Biel, 30, told InStyle magazine.
"But as I've gotten older, I've become proud of the traits that make me who I am. Maintaining my individuality is really important to me because otherwise I can easily slip into somebody else's life. So I'm glad I'm getting better at it. It's a process, but it's getting simpler," she added.
Biel has previously dated actor Chris Evans and sportsman Derek Jeter. (IANS)
