ET's Cameron Mathison caught up with Biel, who both produced and starred in The Book of Love, and the actress opened up about her recent slew of black-tie date nights with her handsome hubby during awards season.
"Honestly, we've had so many date nights we don't even know what to do with ourselves anymore!" Biel quipped. The cute couple recently dressed to the nines for their date night at the Golden Globes on Sunday. "We're like, 'All right, screw date night, this is too much!' We just need to hang out and sit on the couch for a second."
Biel also opened up about her relationship with Timberlake and how she inspires and encourages her husband of four years, joking, "I just basically boss him around all the time."
"'Do this, fix that, make that, take the garbage out, come on, get it together, wake up, don't go to sleep, stay awake,' I just boss him around," she continued.
Getting serious, Biel admitted, "I hope I'm inspiring to him. I think having a partner who is doing something that you're excited about -- like for me, his music and everything that he does -- it's just amazing to see somebody doing what they love, and I think it can be as simple as that."
Biel stressed the importance of having passions and interests that make you happy, outside of your obligations. "It's wonderful to be parents, and it's wonderful to give to your families and everything, but it's also important to be a person and to be an independent human and do things that make you happy," she shared. "Because if you're not happy, your kids aren't happy, and your husband isn't happy, and your family isn't happy, it's not worth it."
The stars share an adorable 1-year-old son, Silas, and it seems the thing that makes him happy his playing with his toys -- which gives him little time to care about his parents' fancy, red-carpet attire.
Biel said that as the couple got ready to hit the red carpet at the Golden Globes and her premiere, their sparkling, dapper wardrobe choices held little interest for the toddler.
"[Before we left], he was just interested in Thomas [the Tank Engine]. He was like, 'Ok. I'm playing trains so... you can leave me alone now,' Biel recounted. "I was like, 'Bye!' And he was like, 'Get out of here!'"
