Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s wedding plans continue unabated, despite the fact that they should both be running away from this wedding at full speed. But come hell or high water, Jessica is getting Justin down the aisle and she will put up with any and all acts of douchebaggery to become “Mrs. Timberlake”. I tend to think the tabloids are right in this situation – the wedding will be going down this summer, probably in California.
Over the weekend, Jessica and JT threw themselves a huge engagement party. It was a cocktail party with the men in suits and the ladies in black dresses (like a funeral) except for Jessica, who wore “a leopard-print halter dress cinched at the waist with a hot pink belt and matching shoes.” Wolfgang Puck catered. Some of the guests? Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Trace Ayala, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia DeRossi and Amy Adams. An insider tells Us Weekly, “Jessica and Justin were mingling both separately and together throughout the party… Jessica seems to be very close with Justin’s friends and vice versa. You can see that they have been dating for a long time and really know each others friends and family well. The party was a fun celebration and a preview of what’s to come with the wedding.” Jessica has really won her prize, hasn’t she?
Yes, she has. In addition to becoming “Mrs. Timberlake”, Jessica also managed to get Justin to sign on to her latest film – as a songwriter and singer! Jessica will star and produce The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea this year, and Justin has signed on to compose original music for the film, and serve as music supervisor. It will be JT’s first musical work since 2009. The film shoots in the fall, lending more support to the idea of a summer wedding. Also: despite Biel’s recent trip to Italy to meet with designers, sources close to Biel are still claiming that she wants a wedding gown designed by Monique Lhuillier. The same designer who did Britney Spears’s wedding gown to Kevin Federline.
Last story: Jessica has a new interview with a French magazine, and she’s talking about how she thinks “nothing will change” once she’s a married lady. She’s probably right.
She’s played everything from a distressed publicist to a noblewoman on the big screen, and now Jessica Biel is looking at a completely new role in real life: housewife.
“To me, nothing will really change, because I’m almost never home,” the Total Recall actress, 30, tells the French magazine Gala in a translated interview. “But when I am home, I enjoy cooking.”
Some specialties she might serve up to soon-to-be husband Justin Timberlake?
“I especially love making cupcakes,” she says, while admitting that when she attempts to customize recipes, “it’s a total disaster, but I’ve also had some pleasant surprises, like recently when I managed to make zucchini fritters.”
Overall, once they tie the knot (possibly over the summer), “I don’t think our marriage will change anything,” she says. And while that may turn out not to be true, she does think “it will be a challenge finding a balance between my private life, family and work, and I’m ready.”
She also describes herself as “someone who lets things happen naturally,” saying she is not sure if she wants to have a child right away.
“For me, getting married doesn’t mean we should limit ourselves to some predefined idea. Rather, it’s an opportunity to explore new things in life, ” says Biel.
And while fans may ogle Timberlake’s good looks and hot moves, for Biel, there are three distinct qualities she finds admirable in her future husband, 31: “The ability to communicate well … to be able to express his feelings. Then, loyalty. And, finally, honesty.”
Oh for the love of God. Jessica, girl. We need to talk. No, scratch that. I’m not going to waste my breath. But it feels like “More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.” This is what she wants, and I don’t think she’s really given it much thought beyond the wedding. The simple thought of “What will Justin Timberlake be like as a husband?” is enough to give me a panic attack, and I’m not the one pledging myself to this douchebag.
