She wore dark shades, which added an element of mystery to the classy look and she accessorised with her diamond wedding ring.   

The California-native, who tied the knot with fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo last year, appears to be settling into married life.

She recently told Wall Street Journal magazine that she never wanted to get married until she met Gian.

‘I never wanted to get married,’ she told the upcoming February issue. 

‘When I first met my husband, he knew that marriage wasn’t something I was interested in

She continued: ‘And then as we got to know each other, the idea of marriage shifted for me. There are some things worth celebrating — and he’s worth celebrating.’

'I never wanted to get married,' she told WSJ magazine

Jessica, who is featured in the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue this month, was recently hailed by fans, including fellow actress Jada Pinkett Smith, for fighting for pay equity in Hollywood.

The actress helped Octavia Spencer receive equal pay for an upcoming comedy they’re doing together after learning that women of colour are not always paid fairly.

‘Jessica stood up for Octavia and I want you to know because they stood together, they got three times what they were asking for as a unit,’ Jada said at Sundance Film Festival last week.

Octavia recently commended Jessica for her efforts. 

‘Here’s the thing, women of colour on that spectrum, we make far less than white women,’ she told the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s ‘Women Breaking Barriers’ panel.

‘So, if we’re gonna have that conversation about pay equity, we gotta bring the women of colour to the table.

She continued: ‘And I told her my story, and we talked numbers, and she was quiet, and she said she had no idea that that’s what it was like for women of colour.’

Jessica then helped Octavia receive more than fives times what she had asked for.
