Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel were married in southern Italy today

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel got married in Italy today. Just now! Are you excited? Judging from the post I wrote about them earlier this week, not so much. People Mag confirms that they got the exclusive deal on their wedding photos, so those will probably have the big “reveal” next Wednesday. I wonder how much the exclusive went for? I’m making the bold assessment that JT and Biel’s Italian wedding photos plus an interview with BOTH of them probably would go for around $300,000-400K. What do you think?

It’s official! After five years of dating, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are husband and wife.

“It’s great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,” the couple told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement Friday.

Timberlake, 31, and Biel, 30, kept mum about the nuptials – they were even vague to guests, keeping the location in southern Italy a complete secret until the last minute – but PEOPLE will have all the details of the wedding, including exclusive photos, in next week’s issue out Wednesday.

Engaged since December, when Timberlake proposed in Big Sky Montana with a custom-designed ring, the couple have been inseparable.

Most recently, Timberlake showed support for his leading lady earlier this month when she was honored at Variety’s Power of Women event for her work with Charity: Water.

The actor-musician said recently of his bride, “She’s a really, really, really special person.”

The happy couple started celebrating earlier this week along with close friends and family.

On Thursday, they hosted a party where guests hung out around open fires and dined on fresh-made cheese, local olives and wine. The night before, the group headed to a beach for a party complete with fireworks and live music.

I’m looking forward to hearing about one thing and one thing only: the food. I want to know what else they had to eat besides “local olives”. I want to know about the CAKE. And I only want to see one thing: the dress. I suspect that Biel went with Giambattista Valli, a solid designer, but I’m just having a sixth-sense feeling that Biel’s whole look is going to be an utter mess. With bangs.

Anyway, congrats to the happy couple. I think they’re awful together, but I’ve been proven wrong before. Maybe she’ll get pregnant right away. Ugh.

    Is the top photo from their wedding? If so, I’m very, very glad that she did away with the bangs. If it’s not then I can only hope that she did away with the bangs for the day. She WILL regret those, it’s just a matter of time.

    Otherwise, congrats to one of the most boring couples on the planet! :D

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      That photo is from a red carpet event.

    • ctkat1 says:

      Nope- that was from the Met Gala, last year or the year before.

      I don’t know why she is clinging to the bangs. They are so wrong for her. She’s incredibly boring (have you seen an interview with her- she’s so, so, so dull) and not a great actress, but she’s really pretty. And those bangs cover half of the only asset she has going for her in Hollywood.

      (I specify Hollywood, because I’m sure she has attributes that make her a lovely person, but the three things that matter in Hollywood [talent, looks, and the It Factor]…not so much.)

      • Babalon says:

        That was an unnecessarily dismissive response to tify. The Met Gala *is* a red carpet event.

        She is boring and tedious but I wish them well.

      • ctkat1 says:

        @Babalon: My comment was in answer to the question by Happy, who asked if the picture was from their wedding.
        Both Tifygodess24 and I were answering the original question that the photo was from a red carpet event, specifically the Met Gala.
        You can actually see that both my comment and Tifygodess24 comment are aligned under the original post by Happy 21. Had I been responding to Tifygodess24, my comment would be indented under hers, as your comment is indented under mine. I wasn’t being
        “unnecessarily dismissive” to anyone.

      • emmie_a says:

        I didn’t read that as an unnecessarily dismissive response to tify… I think she was responding to Happy’s original question.

      • Canda says:

        I must be the only person in existence who does NOT think Biel is pretty/beautiful/good looking. I mean, I don’t think she’s a hideous dog or anything, but I don’t like her face and the combination of her features, her smile always makes me cringe, and her sense of style is terrible. She may well be a nice person (she’s an awful actress) but I cannot get onboard with the whole “Jessica Biel is so gorgeous” thing. Nope.

      • laji says:

        Canda: I’m with you. I don’t get “Jessica Biel is gorgeous”. I always suspected that came from her PR who is always “leaking” personal stories about her. Every time this happens, there’s always mention of how incredibly good looking she is. Seriously. You have to tell us because there’s no way people would think so on their own if you didn’t, right?

        So yes. She’s not ugly. She’s definitely better than average. But I can think of dozens of women I think are far better looking overall — and most of them have more frequent work than Miss “I Can’t Get A Job In This Town Because I’m Too Good Looking”. That attitude alone leaves me with no sympathy for Mrs. Timberlake.

      • Sweettart says:

        I totally agree. I was actually surprised to discover that she was kind of an “It” girl.

        The only thing I remember her from is Seventh Heaven and I always thought she was kind of awkward and a little odd looking.

        “Beautiful” and “sexy” are not words I would ever associate with her.

        I think she just has a very good publicist.

    • Jane says:

      I agree with the bangs..she just ain’t a bangs kind of gal..two low of a forehead but they are in style and all the celebs have to look alike. Anyone want to lay odds as to how long this marriage will last?

      • Me Too says:

        Two years if she has the balls to dump him when he cheats…and he will or five years if she decides she likes the notoriety of being Mrs. Justin Timberlake and just turns her head…in that case, he’ll dump her first.

        Have to say while I think she sucks as an actress and agree with everyone about her being boring and not having the it factor, I think that applies to JT as well. I just don’t get why he’s popular. He can’t act. I don’t think he’s hot. And I hate his voice. Can someone tell me why he’s an A lister?

      • Nina says:

        Probably <2 years… but could be up to 4. Can't picture it lasting any longer. Too young, too enamored with themselves and hollywood, too bought into the scene and the publicity. A stable marriage just doesn't attract the same amount of attention. IMO JT should stay focused on music, but he wants to be an actor. Sigh.

  2. Amory says:

    Nothing against these two, but this one does not seem destined to last. When you break up as many times as they have, marriage is probably not the solution. He seems like a jerk and she seems like a total blah – maybe not the best combo.

  3. Brittney says:

    God, even their joint statement sounds half-assed. And the way he described her reminds me of a certain Mr. Affleck…

    “Special” relationship indeed.

  4. Apples says:

    Is this where we are placing our bets?!!

    I say no MORE than 5 1/2 years.
    Probably less.

  5. Sunnyinseattle says:

    I read somewhere they were actually married Wednesday. Either way, she is boring and he is an ass. Good luck…..

  6. Snowpea says:

    Everyone caries on about Ashton being a knob, but this dude gets a free pass.

    He strikes me as entitled, arrogant, prissy and sooooooooooooo unsexy. And she is as boring as batshit!

    The two of them together are like a minus equation. Like what does -3 + -1 equal?

    So so so so boring. Gimme Mila and Ashton any day. They look like they have delicious make out sessions all day long! ; )

  7. Aqua says:

    He only married her because she will probably let him get away with whatever he wants which is probable what she does now anyways.

  8. Madison says:

    Congrats on your marriage Jess, you now get to stay famous and relevant in Hollywood as Mrs Timberlake for at least the next 5 years or however long it is that you’ve signed on for. I imagine babies are next and daily paparazzi parades at brentwood and farmers markets. Rich and famous, it’s not a bad deal well done Jess.

  9. Just me. says:

    Ugh. Gross. Eww, and finally eye roll.

  10. Genevieve says:

    LOVE that dress she’s wearing in the bottom pic! LOVE!!!!

    But really, I could care less about their wedding. Why are they selling the pics? I mean, shouldn’t it be kept as a private thing for them? I don’t get it.

    Also, does she inject stuff into her lips? They’re different sizes in different pictures.

    • Esther says:

      They are selling the picture because if they didn’t no one would be talking about them. so they give people the exclusive so they aren’t yesterdays news by the weekend.
      They calculated this from the very beginning of their engagement. she has a movie coming out next month and one in December she needs something to talk about during promo. it’s not like she’s going to be one of the shining stars of the Hitchcock movie she’ll be overshadowed by the two leads in the film. so she needs this

    • hoya_chick says:

      I know right? For years they were really private, now it’s all this famewhoring. Who gives a statement to a magazine ON their actual wedding day?! How desperate and it’s so transparent. Doesn’t seem like her bestie Jen Garner was there though. Interesting, I see Jessica becoming the new Garner in a few years. I give it 3-5 years tops though. I think he is so skevy and his music is horrible and she looks so horse face and is a terrible actress. I say all of this to say Congratulations! Lol

  11. Skipper says:

    Usually I don’t get the dislike for these two but based on the fact They Personally gave people a statement on the day of their wedding, I can sort of understand it. I’m sure she looked gorgeous though.

  12. Layale says:

    I’m bummed. I secretly wanted JT and Brittany Spears back together…sigh.

  13. Anguishedcorn says:


  14. Meg says:

    I picture her hair being a wispy/messy up-do bun style and it will be very pretty on her.

    She’s always been a bit budget to me (but perfectly harmless and lovely) but who cares what I think! Good luck to them both :o )

  15. Daniel says:

    I give it less than 1 year.

  16. oivey says:

    fourteen year old me just died inside.

    I’ve not “followed” Justin for years though, what’s the go with him being an ass? I hear it a lot…

    Jessica seems perfectly lovely, but I agree a little blah. Direct to dvd rom com stuff.

  17. diva says:

    Sadly I don’t see them lasting long. I definitely see her trying to get a baby out of this. If they divorce then she’ll always have a kid to parade around the paps.

  18. winter says:

    I think she’ll hold off on having children for as long as she can because i think she will try to use her new found status to get her movie roles and plus the fact that Hitchcock looks like it’s going to be a contender come the award season. she will have a career boost all around and she’ll milk for as long as she can and then have a child. It’s not like she will have longevity in her career any ways prior to Justin she was already headed out the door and now that she’s in her 30s her the shelf life of her career is going to start dwindling fast. Having children now will pretty much end what career has left she will end up like Jessica Alba.

  19. Minnie says:

    She does need to carefully consider the baby thing vs. her career. Look at how jen anistan miscalculated that one!!!

  20. the original bellaluna says:

    I want to know more about that cheese! And the other food, like pastas and sauces, and oooh, was there seafood?

    Congrats and all. I see this lasting long enough for them to have a couple kids, him to have a couple dozen flings, and her to finally get sick of it and leave his obnoxious ass.

  21. shewolf says:

    I agree about the bangs… why on earth would she do that to her face?

  22. lori says:

    ? Can you get extensions done on bangs? You can right? I hope so.
    I didn’t think her bangs were that awful, they did bring out her great cheek bones. But they got boring fast, so I think a hair piece for bangs would have been a smarter option. I hope Justin picked out a nice dress for her….i doubt she had much say in it as they were selling the pictures.

  23. HappyJoyJoy says:

    Countdown to cheaterville. I give him 8 months before he starts fooling around.

  24. girlindisguise says:

    She’s so blah and boring and doesn’t have a personality to speak of. And he’s a douchebag.

    I give the marriage three years, if that.

    • Red Starburst says:

      agreed. this relationship is oatmeal to me. its boring. Maybe its weird but the pre-teen in me is somewhat disapointed he and Britney never reunited in a fairytale wedding surrounded by disney co-stars and backstreet boys and all those other teenyboppers of our (early 2000s) time.

  25. Lotta says:

    I think she is one of the most beautiful women alive and she seems lovely.
    Him, I don’t like and he’s ugly too.

    Still,I wish them the best! He is one lucky guy, and I hope he knows it.

  26. jilly says:

    I give this marriage a year, two if she continues to ignore his cheating, three if she gets preggers. Justin needs someone more sexciting.

  27. hotmess says:

    Don’t have a good feeling about this one. Although she not the best actress out over the past several months she passed over 2 decent roles that would have probably not in a huge way solidified her but would gave her a little headway amongst her peers but she didn’t accept and I truly think it had something to do wanting to be married to him. I gather his massive ego probably couldn’t deal. I hope she gets smart fast and doesn’t past over offers just to appease this guy. In the end it just doesn’t pay she can ask Katie Holmes about that.

  28. jl says:

    she has the worst nose job I’ve ever seen

  29. lisa2 says:

    People magazine has failed big time on the Wedding covers lately. I for one don’t care about any of these people and their weddings. I don’t see myself buying an issue of People to look at the pictures. I have not found any of the recent wedding covers the least bit interesting. Thing is most of these people don’t ignite the public interest. Well they don’t ignite mine.

    Congrats to the couple.

  30. Lurkeelee says:

    Congrats to the Groom and Beard, er Bride I mean.

  31. Sugar says:

    Congrats now grown those damn bang out

  32. Sugar says:

    Congrats now grown those damn bangs out

  33. Lindsey says:

    When does the divorce deadpool start? ASAP

  34. chipmunk says:

    i have never had a bad feeling for a couple the way i do for these two…… just hoping for the best!

  35. I'm going to Guam! says:

    I don’t get the hate for her? I get the hate for him…he’s such a douche, but what has Jessica done to get so much hate from people? She seems harmless. I don’t know much about her but she was gorgeous on 7th heaven.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      Explanation of the hate:
      1. From the outside, Justin doesn’t seem to treat her well and yet she clings, presumably for the “glory” of being with him officially .
      2. In interviews she explains her lack of high caliber movie roles by saying she’s too beautiful for those parts, or something to that effect ..

  36. Me says:

    I certainly hope she’s not doing the over wrought squinty pout in her wedding pics.

  37. Mandy says:

    Come on guys, I think we can all agree that nearly ALL celebrity marriages do not last! This is nothing new.

  38. Jayna says:

    She is so striking and had the potential to be one of the most beautiful celebrity brides. But if she’s rocking those heavy bangs from the top of her head, what a waste.

    Justin dodged a bullet with Britney, Camryn Diaz, and Scarjo. Inlove Jessica in interviews on TV, always funny. Her career will be average because of her limited range. So dueling careers shouldn’t destroy the marriage. Congrats.

  39. taxi says:

    Let’s hope they’re happy, at least until they aren’t.

    She has a pretty face, nice figure, & not much talent. In interviews it’s clear that her opinion of herself is higher than anyone else’s. He is unattractive to me & I don’t get his appeal. Don’t find him so talented but he’s most likely smarter than the bride.

  40. Shelfy says:

    Well like what Lainey said, this Is Shelfy’s reward for clinging on to him for dear life and Through out the infidelities. She finally got the wifey title. Like Jen Garner, I don’t think she’ll ever let him go, no matter what. Yet I still hope for him & Britney to atleast in the future, reconcile. I wonder what the Pre-Nup is. Like I wanna know what it states cuz I’m SURE he gets away with everything. In her interviews she tries too hard. It’s like sad.

  41. Mar says:

    She is so boring I don’t give 2 hoots.

  42. EscapedConvent says:

    You are absolutely not alone. Some of the funniest stuff on the Interwebs’ celeb sites is on this page—that goes for the original writers & the commenters.

  43. Down and Out says:

    These two… I just don’t see it. They have no chemistry. If they were leads in a movie, I wouldn’t buy that they were into each other.

    That said, mazel tov.

  44. Grace says:

    They’ll do the full holiday spread and then go right back to work. By Spring he’ll be cheating, by Summer he’ll be caught. Jessica will be laughed at by everyone and she’ll retire to do charity work while still married to Justin.
    This will be Newman and Woodward II with much less talented and unattractive stand-ins.

  45. palermo says:

    I have NEVER understood his so called charm. He looks geeky and is a big cheater. I thought she was gay? Her nosejob is right up there in Jackson territory.

  46. LibsW says:

    With her fashion track record over the last gazillion years I agree her whole look is going to be an utter mess, with bangs, and with a huge top lip covered in a dreadful nude hue. Is it there? Isn’t it there? It’s like playing peek-a-boo with a trout pout and she needs to leave it alone a little. Sorry if I sound grouchy, my LO woke me up at 4:50am. Bleugh!

  47. buell says:

    Just please let the wedding favors have included a dick in a box!

  48. Hannah says:

    Wow, they sold their pics. Isn’t that really really hypocritical of him???

    • lisa2 says:

      There are a lot of hypocrites. People that love to say how private they are. how they hate the paps. But I am surprised by the People picture sale. But People has had most of the celeb wedding on their cover. Anne Hatheway sold hers and said she was giving a portion to some organization. But I don’t hear a lot of flack being thrown her way.

      I guess it all depends on the celebrity in question.

  49. carlino altoviti says:

    The Italian magazines wrote from days about the marriage. The celebrations began altready on Wednesday and there was the ceremony on Saturday.
    They have armored a “Masseria” in Apulia (an old farm converted into a luxury resort) and there were security guards everywhere for a week.

  50. skuddles says:

    I read somewhere this wedding cost over 6 mil… for a marriage that will probably last less than 6 years. “It’s great to be married”? Ugh, how cheesy and lame is that? Good luck you two, you’re gonna need it.

  51. aloejuice says:

    They never ever ever made sense together to me. I hope they make it but…

  52. KellyinSeattle says:

    My mom said , “If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say it at all”, but she doesn’t read this website :) I think Jessica’s styling is the worst. Even the top pic, it looks like a lopsided dress on a coat hanger, and like it’s going to fall off. Justin – never liked any of his “stuff”, even as a teenager…..blah. Hopefully the babies won’t take after them very much.

  53. snappyfish says:

    her lips look like two vienna sausages; why would anyone do that to their mouth?

  54. Stormy says:

    She is one of the worst.Her nose job is awful,I can’t even watch her act.Justin can sing,anyone remember?And dance,which I find sexy.His acting isn’t that bad,better then her.I think he is a cutie.Its unfortunate he married her for her ass.

  55. Oraclele says:

    Nobody can make me believe he wanted to marry this chick! I say mommy badgered him into it…or the c-list actress knows where all the bodies are buried! LOL….Justin should have used the duress word! She’s such a spaz! I’m gonna secretly root for Britney to swoop in and save him! Lol
