“We Can’t Stop Dating,” Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake Proved That You Shouldn’t Rush to Find True Love
When on the first encounter, the man is able to make the woman laugh, it’s more likely for her to be romantically interested in him. In fact, humor can help save and maintain relationships. These things are full of ups and downs, but when you can find the humor in them, everything will go much easier for both parties involved. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel prove this theory to be totally true.
Here at Bright Side, we have gathered up the details of these lovebirds’ relationship, from the first joke to where they are now, and decided to give you a reason to believe in fairy tales again.
It started with a joke and a dance.
Timberlake and Biel first met at a birthday party, where Timberlake cracked a dry joke, as he recalled, and Biel was the only one who laughed. They danced to Madonna’s “Lucky Star.” However, the thing between them was far from “love at first sight.”
“There was nothing starry about the way we got together. It was very un-Hollywood-esque, in fact,” recalled Timberlake, “We met and got talking.” Justin later reported to Us Weekly, “I did it the old-fashioned way — by telephone.” But Biel was reluctant to enter an affair with Timberlake, “the bad boy” who was known for entering one high-profile relationship after another, first with Britney Spears and then with Cameron Diaz shortly after.
Their secret relationship wasn’t a secret for long.
In the spring of 2007, Scarlett Johansson was asked about rumors that she was dating Timberlake, and she told Seventeen, “If it’s somebody one week, it’s going to be somebody else the next week. It’s either me or Jessica Biel.” Both Timberlake and Biel were doing everything to keep their relationship low-profile, but when they were among friends, they could hardly keep their hands off each other. And their relationship went public not so long after they met, when The Daily Mail published the first photos of them kissing while in the United Kingdom.
The dream couple broke up, then made up.
From the very beginning, in Timberlake and Biel’s earliest years together, there were rumors and speculation about why or why not they were close to splitting up, until they actually did. In March 2011, representatives for the pair released a joint statement confirming the break-up. “We are confirming that Timberlake and Biel have mutually decided to part ways,” the statement read. “The 2 remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other.”
But the dream couple could not stay away from each other for long. It was only a few months before Timberlake was able to woo Biel back, and they were spotted together several times that summer, sparking rumors that they were back together.
It’s real, they tied the knot.
Finally, Justin and Biel got engaged in late 2011 shortly after they got back together. He proposed while they were on vacation in Montana. According to The Knot, he said, “I had the ring on my pinkie, and I was like, ’Look at the shadows over there on the mountains,’ and she was like, ’Oh yeah, that’s beautiful,’ and I was like, ’Do you see it?’”
Around a year later, the couple finally tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Italy, which Biel called “a total fantasy experience” when speaking to People. The actress wore a now-iconic custom pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown, and Timberlake serenaded her with a song he wrote especially for the ceremony as she walked down the aisle.
Biel’s pregnancy made Timberlake run back home.
In 2014, when Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience World Tour was getting underway, Biel informed him that they were going to have a baby.
“I had just finished a show, and I go into my car and took my phone out,” he wrote in Hindsight. “There was a text from Jess, in all capital letters. It read, ’Call Me Now.’ I FaceTimed her back immediately. She answered with this look on her face, and I knew exactly what she was going to say. Instead, she just held up the pregnancy test, and we both started bawling. I ended the tour early, so I could be at home and take care of my family.”
They welcomed Silas on April 8, 2015. 5 years later, Biel gave birth to their second “secret baby,” a nod to his July 2020 birth that she and Timberlake did not confirm for almost 6 months.
A tip from Timberlake and Biel for a successful marriage is to give her everything.
Justin stated that they had rules in their relationship. That rule number one is that he makes her feel like she’s getting everything. His second rule is that he applies rule number one. He says, “So far, it’s working.”
He also says that he looked at the marriage between his mother and his stepdad. What he learned from them is that marriage is a team effort.
Also, Biel said to Marie Claire that they both have the same values, honesty and loyalty, that they both like to have fun, and basically like the same things. Also, she said, “In the business, we’re all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish.” She explained that you score when you meet someone who shares similar values as you.
Moreover, Biel told E! News, “My husband always says, ’We can’t stop dating.’” She loves that fact because, to her, it’s true. She also recommended, “Keep it fresh, keep it exciting. Spontaneous if at all possible.”
