A “hungover” Jessica Biel ate cake for breakfast after partying at the Emmys.

The star was nominated for the lead actress in a limited series or movie gong for her work on crime drama The Sinner but lost out to Seven Seconds’ Regina King.

Biel had attended the TV awards show in Los Angeles with her husband Justin Timberlake and the pair later went to an afterparty, according to her social media.

Before the ceremony, Biel, who shares a three-year-old son, Silas Randall, with her pop singer husband, joked about lack of alcohol.
