Jessica Biel was at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend promoting her newest project, "Limetown." The thriller, based on a podcast, is set to premiere on Facebook Watch next month.

The star, solo on the carpet, looked amazing in Louis Vuitton.

"Extra" asked Jessica if she would ever work with her superstar husband, Justin Timberlake, to which she replied, "I would love to produce him in something — I would love to be his boss."

In "Limetown," Biel is taking on another strong character, this time playing Lia Haddock, who investigates the dark secret behind the disappearance of a whole, fictional town. "I don’t know why I continue to make myself suffer like this," she said, "but I love it — I love it! I love these characters filled with pathos and trauma and family history and dysfunction."

"You want to explore these human things," she went on, "you want to explore why people do the things they do — even the strange things they do — and how they react. That’s the joy in it."

Smiling, she told us, "Believe me, I am trying to find a comedy. I’m trying to find a romance so I can just be nice and smile."

With so many dark characters under her belt, Jessica wanted to assure her fans, "I am a very nice, normal person. I don’t do anything weird at home, really. I like that, too — I like the contradiction."

"Limetown" premieres on Facebook Watch October 16.
