Proving that it’s never too late to join the sordid world of blogging, actress Jessical Biel has launched a MySpace page. In her first entry, she admits to being “internet challenged” and hopeful that her new page will increase the amount of friends she has. We think she’s on to something, because she went from 6-1300 in about 24 hours.

From her first entry,

“Anyway, not only do I feel cooler being an official blogger, but I’m also realizing that this is a perfect place to share some projects that I’m working on that I’m really excited about. I’m trying on the producer cap with my friend, Michelle, with our production company Iron Ocean Films. We made a thirty minute short last year, called Hole in the Paper Sky about a man’s experience after meeting a dog that changes his life. I think it’s a really evocative, beautiful film, and it has won an award at all four festivals where it has screened. I’ll put up a trailer as soon as I can figure out how to do that:) I hope that animal lovers will be moved by this film as well because it has an animal rights element to it, which I’m a huge advocate for. I’m actually sitting here with my dog, Tina. She’s not really into blogging.”

Back in May, Jessica started an online social network for good with her father called “Make The Difference“. Their goal is to increase the “visibility of nonprofit organizations by empowering potential donors to search, select and fund these organizations”. In her profile on MySpace, Jessica also champions her environmental passions and hopes to “make a positive impact on the planet.”

Has anyone seen Hole in the Paper Sky? If the soundtrack preview is any indication, I’m going to be bawling my eyes out after this one.

[Update] Yup, get the tissues ready. Here’s a link to the trailer.
