Jessica Biel "freaked out" when she started filming 'Easy Virtue'.

In the movie Easy Virtue,actress Jessica Biel plays Larita, an avant-garde young American woman who takes the Whittaker family by storm when she accompanies her new husband, John (Ben Barnes), to his home.
The actress Jessica Biel grants she felt overwhelmed mixing with the British cast - which included Colin Firth, Kristin Scott Thomas and Ben Barnes - of the English period drama and worried she was out of her depth.
She said: "Stepping into the room for the read-through, I was freaking out. I'm the only American. I'm just sitting there feeling weird and out of place."I felt initially that I was really not prepared to be in this company."
By "this company,"Jessica Biel means Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas, who play her in-laws in this period piece based on an early Noël Coward play. Biel plays an American race-car driver who impulsively marries their son (Ben Barnes). He brings her home to his crumbling English manor, and his mother takes an instant dislike to her. It's a tug-of-war, the free spirit versus the stiff upper lipped.
To prepare for her role as race-car driving newlywed Larita, Jessica watched lots of old movies to study classic Hollywood glamour.
