"Colin really likes poetry, and I am a bit of an amateur poet myself," showbizspy.com quoted Biel as saying. "He was telling me all about different poets he likes.
He would let me borrow a book and I would look at his poetry book over a week and then I'd pass it back and we'd talk about which poems we liked best," the 30-year-old actress said.
"I like being able to write when I find the time to get into it. I love reading poetry and I have written poetry myself since I was in school." "It's very calming and spiritual to be able to get in touch with emotions and states of mind to write poetry," she added.
Biel, who is engaged to singer-actor Justin Timberlake, recently admitted she has always been a tomboy. "Maybe not tough, but perhaps tomboy," Biel said when asked if she has a reputation as a tough person.
"I have always been that kind of person. Constantly playing sports and never really into make-up or fashion, until about five years ago," she said.
