Actress Jessica Biel was hurt when critics took aim at her family-friendly restaurant project before the doors opened.

The “Total Recall” star recently launched Au Fudge, a kid-friendly eatery which incorporates a mostly organic menu of California-French comfort food in Los Angeles, reported the New York Post.

Biel said she wasn’t prepared for the backlash from people who were quick to compare her business venture to those of other Hollywood stars, like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, and Reese Witherspoon, who have left the film sets behind to start successful lifestyle initiatives.

“You can’t help but get your feelings hurt,” she said.

“You think, ‘Well, hold on a second. I’m just trying to do something cool for my community. Why is this getting so turned around?’ But it inspired us to keep moving forward because we know our hearts are in the right place.”

The mother-of-one has also credited the support of her co-owners and husband, singer Justin Timberlake, for helping her ignore the critics who didn’t have anything nice to say.

“He’s not one of those people to pooh-pooh an idea or a passion. He is the person who says, ‘Do it. And if it fails, it fails. But you did it’. I’m sure he was probably thinking, ‘It’s going to be hard”.
