For Jessica Biel's upcoming drama The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, the actress wasn't simply tasked with starring in the project, but took on the challenge of producing it as well.

Biel's role as producer gave her the unique opportunity to make the film a family affair, bringing on her husband and pop superstar, Justin Timberlake, to oversee the film's music.

Biel and Timberlake walked the red carpet at the premiere of her new film at the Tribeca Film Fest at the John Zuccotti Theater in New York City on Thursday, where the cute couple shined.

ET spoke with Biel, 34, at the premiere, who opened up about her first feature film producorial effort and admitted that producing is "so much harder" than acting.

"[There are] so many more things to take care of, so many more hats to wear. Problems you have to fix," Biel explained. "Normally, [as an actor] you just come to set and don't have to worry about any of the problems. I don't have to worry about if the money is there. I don’t have to worry about if the cast is happy."

As a producer, Biel worked with her husband on the film, but she admitted that she -- and the other producers -- made sure not to "micromanage" him when it came to his creativity.

"He's much better left to his own devices," Biel shared. "I mean, I like to say that I was his boss, but I wasn't really acting as his boss. So we had a good working relationship."

"I so enjoy finding these stories and creating something that I have more of my stamp on as opposed to just giving a performance and crossing my fingers and hoping for the best," Biel said. "To have a little of both worlds has been really cool for me and very fulfilling."

The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is set to hit theaters later this year.
