Justin Timberlake Opens Up About Jessica Biel & Marriage
With wedding bells imminent, Justin Timberlake has opened up about his fiancée Jessica Biel in a rare discussion of his personal life at a press conference with the Hollywood Foreign Press.
While promoting his new movie, "Trouble with the Curve," the 31-year-old actor-singer was asked about his future wife. He gushed, " "She's a really, really, really special person. Plus, she's really, really, hot!"
So how did the superstar romance begin? JT explained, "There was nothing starry about the way we got together. It was very un-Hollywood-esque, in fact. We met and got talking. Afterwards I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out. My friend called Jessica and Jessica said yes, and so I called her."
The old-souled pop star continued, "I did it the old fashioned way -- by telephone. That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather -- that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn't have to die with the birth of the internet. The way I see it, if you're asking a girl out on a date, it's only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed."
Though this is the first marriage for both stars, the former boy-bander has thought a lot about how to make their marriage successful. He stated, "I think it's important to remember that you go into something like marriage knowing that you don't know very much about it at all. But I do look at the marriage of my mother and stepdad, and what makes it work for them is that it's a team effort. My mother is a ball of fire in the world and I love that about her. But what I have learned from my stepdad is something as important, which is patience and compassion. Because when you are living with someone else, those two qualities go a long way."
