Jessica Biel at the first Emmy nod: ‘I enjoyed a delicious glass of champagne to myself’

Jessica Biel said she celebrated her recent Emmy nod and a wink with a nice glass of bubbly.


Jessica Biel topped off her Emmy nod with some “me” time and a glass of bubbles.

The star told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert she was abroad in Amsterdam when she heard the good news on July 12.

“Did you remember that it was coming or was it -?” Colbert asked the star Wednesday, referring to the day of the nominees were revealed.

“No, I had the whole day to think about it,” Biel shared. “You know, normally if I was at home in L. A., just, someone you wake up and you’re, you know, sort of discombobulated and it’s exciting. I waited all day to hear what was going to happen.”

The first time Emmy nominee — who is up for Outstanding lead actress in a Limited Series or a Movie for her role as Cora Tannetti in “The Sinner” — to be remembered how they marked the special occasion.


“I was actually with my child,” she said, referring to Silas, her 3-year-old son with husband Justin Timberlake. “And I brought him to bed, and I – I enjoyed a lovely glass of champagne by myself.”

“By yourself?” Colbert asked, as Biel recalled the “amazing” moment.

The comedian is soon pulled two champagne flutes from under his desk. The pair clinked glasses and exchanged “cheers.”

“You shouldn’t drink alone,” Colbert advised the actress.

However, it was not a problem for Biel.

“You know what, I love drinking alone,” she explained.


“Why do you like that? Cause there is no mind?” the comedian asked.

“Yes,” she answered.

The actress defended her take on imbibe only.

“I like it. I’m sorry, I think it’s cool, I think it’s good,” she added.

Biel shared a photo from her solo celebration on social media the day of the Emmy nominations were announced.

“I am so impressed with this Emmy nomination, which I drink only. No shame in my champagne game! ” she wrote at the time.
