Justin Timberlake’s wife got candid about women’s anatomy including joking that "vaginas are magical things," or they can be “weird and scary, and like bleed for seven days, so they shouldn't be trusted."

Despite the light- hearted introduction, the new mom got serious when answering a reader’s question about what’s the best thing a mother can tell a child.

"All we have left really, truly in this world that we can control is our own integrity. I don't mean that like sexual integrity, I mean that as a human being," she explained. "You choose how you live your life, what you deserve.”

Biel, who has had her fair share of moments in front of the camera, also opened up about her mixed feelings regarding the portrayal of women in the media.

"The media does a lot of really wonderful things to support women and women's bodies," she explained. "And we can't discount that, and we're actively using media to do something amazing, to really talk frankly and openly about women – MY needs, OUR needs, OUR desires."

"But I think it's easy for the media to show a prototype of what a women should look like,” she continued. “That's just not how a women should look – we're all different, we all have different shapes and sizes. We have all the same issues – we all go through the same thing every day. But we all are completely different."

"I think it's easy to want to look a certain way, because you see certain things in magazines and that, but the truth is, we're amazing because we're different."

On a lighter note, Biel displayed her humor when asked what things she believes have gotten progressively better over the years.
