When a social media user failed to recognize both him and his wife, Jessica Biel, Timberlake took it in stride with an amusing response.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been married for more than 10 years and they are still going strong. On their 10th anniversary in October 2023, Timberlake (@justintimberlake) took to TikTok to wish Biel with a post captioned: "10 years ain't enough! I love you so much, beautiful human. Run it back!" In the video, the duo can be seen enjoying each other's company and a spectacular view.
However, one social media user did not recognize Biel or Timberlake in the clip, reports BuzzFeed. They commented, “I don’t know who you are, but your girlfriend looks like Jessica Biel. Congrats!” Recently in a new TikTok video, Timberlake responded to the comment by sliding down his sunglasses and saying, “Yeah,” three times under his breath. He captioned the post, “From now on, I’m going by ‘Jessica Biel’s boyfriend.’”
The video went viral, garnering over 21 million views and 1.6 million likes. People in the comments section laughed about it. @qmediafilms commented, “I don’t know who Jessica Biel is, but you look like her husband.” @kodyeelyse wrote, “Lmaoooo, what a coincidence because you kinda look like that guy that sang cry me a river!” @cruzmyworld shared, “For a second there, I thought you were Justin Timberlake! You look just like him!” @abbykay91 expressed, “Millennials are raging inside at this comment.” @jilliandillon353 commented, “Didn't you use to sing and dance or something.” The singer even changed his TikTok bio to “Jessica Biel’s boyfriend.”
Biel and Timberlake married each other in southern Italy in October 2012. The actor then told PEOPLE about the ceremony: "I had a little bit of butterflies. I was about to stand up in front of my friends and family and bare my soul for the person I love. It was terribly emotional."
While talking about their marriage in 2018, Biel spoke about what keeps their relationship strong. "Communication, communication, communication," said the actor. "The ability to be really honest about how you're feeling and what your needs are. Just be able to communicate really honestly with your partner. That's worked for us so far. I would never want to speak on anyone else's relationship, but that's what we do."
On Biel's 40th birthday last year, the singer shared a picture of him and his wife and wrote, "MOOD: 40 AF.” Timberlake added, "Whether it's laid up on a couch, kicking my ass at the gym, or dressing up at ridiculous costume parties... you make it all look good. I love you and I celebrate you every day." Reportedly, he even threw a special party for Biel and played covers of their most meaningful songs.
The duo renewed their vows in November last year in Italy. She told TODAY, "It was very intimate. It was very small, a couple of our friends, and we literally barely put this thing together. We almost canceled it. We thought, 'This is silly, are we going to feel goofy doing this?' And actually, it was so moving. I felt like, 'Wow, we're going to keep doing this. Look at us!' It felt really nice." Speaking of what keeps their marriage going, Biel said: “It feels so, I don't know, a combination of incredibly safe and just deep understanding of another person."
