Jessica Biel is changing her name to Jessica Timberlake, ‘the jackpot of names’

Ugh. Would you like another gross story about this video that may or may not have been shown as a “joke” during Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s wedding? We discussed the “joke” video yesterday – the “joke” was that Justin’s friend, a real estate agent named Justin Huchel, went around to homeless people and coached them to say stuff like “I wish I could make it to your wedding” and “my gift is in the mail.” Gawker claimed that the video was totally shown during Justin’s wedding, which says a lot about Justin and who he chooses as friends. Anyway, TMZ managed to get in touch with one of the homeless men who appeared in the video, and he said he was paid $40 to appear and say his pre-written lines. When told what happened to the footage, the man (who was on his way to a job interview) said, “That makes me feel really bad … that was a trick played on me.” Everyone is saying that the lawyers are getting involved, and Gawker is probably going to get sued for posting some of the video… so let me just say this now: Team Gawker.

Meanwhile, don’t you feel bad for Jessica Biel? I feel bad for her. Poor, sad Jessica Biel. Sad Biel couldn’t even have a moment where everyone was looking at her in her pretty pink wedding dress. Sad Biel had to walk down the aisle as Justin Timberlake sang a special song to her, a song called “I Like You More Than Olivia Munn, Sort Of”. Sad Biel was like the third wheel at her own wedding. Sad Biel knows that she really got married to Justin Timberlake… and his enormous f—king tempermental ego. But still, Sad Biel is happy that she finally got him down the aisle. Sad Biel is going to devote her life to being Mrs. Timberlake. Literally:

Newlywed Jessica Biel is ready for all the changes that come with married life – including a new last name.

“Yes, I’m changing my name,” says Biel, 30, who next appears in the film Hitchcock. “My professional name will still be the same, but for life, yes, I think it sounds great. I think I really won the jackpot of names.”

But Biel, who wore a “whimsical” Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown for her Oct. 19 wedding to Justin Timberlake , is most excited about building a life with her new husband. “It’s hard to find that one person in the world,” says Biel. “Once you find that person, go for it. That kind of commitment is very special.”

The stars’ “fantasy” nuptials capped off a week of celebrating for the duo, who toasted alongside 100 close friends and family on the Southern Italian coast.

[From People]

So, she’ll still be Jessica Biel, Actress. But everywhere else she’ll be Jessica Timberlake. Which is fine. The name-change thing is a decision every woman has to make for herself. Personally, I dislike it when actresses change their professional names when they get married (it messes up their brand in most cases), but if they want to change their personal-life names, so be it. Mrs. Jessica Timberlake… I think I went to elementary school with a Jessica Timberlake. Weird.

    i love the “pink” cover( it ‘s so …pink!)

    on changing her name ,good for her

    • maria says:

      Why is it good for her????
      I never understood why women change their name when they get married.
      I’m italian and it’s not common, I wouldn’t change it and my boyfriend would never aks me to change my name!!!!

      • Marigold says:

        Personally, I changed my name because I hate my maiden name and do not have a relationship with my father. Other women do it because when they have children, they want the whole family to have the same last name. An argument could be made for using the bride’s last name in that case but nonetheless, it’s not a terrible reason.

      • HotPockets says:

        I changed my last name because…shocker..I wanted too! No one can spell my maiden name right, so I was always correcting forms and paperwork. I wanted to change it, not to mention I think hyphenating is silly, so I didn’t want to do that.

      • carrie says:

        “good for her” because it’s her choice
        i’m french and the french tradition is that you take your husband’s name but it’s not obligatory

      • mln76 says:

        personally would never change my name and probably would give at least one of my children my last name (it’s very unusual)…still it’s totally her choice and she seems excited …I think it’s an awful name and she’s married to a creep and that’s the only reason why I won’t say good for her because I’m betting she’s going to be miserable in her marriage.

      • RocketMerry says:

        Well, I’m from the North of Italy and here that practice is quite common. I don’t see it as an extremely good thing either, though.
        I find that the couple should decide about which last name to take together, and if they decide for the woman’s last name then great, if they chose the man’s surname, equally good.

        As for this case, I specifically dislike the sound of it: “Jessica Timberlake”. It sounds long, dissonant and unpleasant. Whatevs, though.

      • Lady D says:

        What happens when someone with a hyphenated last name marries someone with a hyphenated last name? Do you have 4 last names?

      • Chris says:

        Because it will feel good every time someone calls her Mrs. Timberlake once they get divorce.

        I don’t get the tradition either but I try not to blast other’s traditions and culture. (Not saying that you’re doing that)

        It does bother me how people seem to get offended when I say I have no intent on taking my husband’s name.

      • Me Too says:

        I agree Maria. Just don’t get the name change thing anymore. It seems like a sexist thing to me, like you’re part of your hubby’s property. I like my last name.

      • Pandy says:

        I married at 37 and changed my name. It felt like a new life, a new start or something so changing my name made sense. My husband is Italian. I like all of the vowels, lol.

      • dcypher1 says:

        Some people like being old school and traditional. Its kinda romantic.

      • lower-case deb says:

        for my family personally, we have two different groups. one that takes after the husband’s name, and one where the husband and wife donates half of each of their their family name to make a new name for the new family.

        i belong to the second group, me and my siblings have surname comes from my father’s surname’s first syllable and my mother’s surname’s first syllable.

        my cousin’s name is from her father’s last syllable and her mother’s middle syllable (because if they take both first syllables, or both last syllables, it sounds really odd and a bit hinky).

        anyway, i’m intrigued to learn all the different traditions of naming from different countries. very interesting and it shows that the celebitchy readership is very multinational. nice :)

      • Elizabeth says:

        In “olden days”, a woman had no legal rights to property or pretty much anything (I have a degree in history – trust me). A woman changed her name to show she was a man’s property. Yuck. I would only take my husband’s name if my own name was really gross. A friend of mine was named “Cox” and she took her husband’s name to stop the jokes comparing her last name to a certain piece of male anatomy.

    • Shrubee says:

      Kaiser, yeah changing your name does affect your brand, But since when is BIEL a BRAND??

      • deehunny says:

        lol, of course she’s a brand. haven’t you seen, “Tall Man”?

        Ok, snarky comment for the day satisfied ;)

    • Kiki says:

      I’d love to change my name when I get married but in Mexico the tradition is to use your last name and then your husband’s. For example if you are Maria Garcia and your husband is Diego Rodriguez, you become Maria Garcia de Rodriguez, in this case “de” means “of”.

      • Elizabeth says:

        That is a Latin American tradition that I have always loved.

      • Elizabeth says:

        ITA. When I see a wedding dress with that many ruffles right around the woman’s waist,”pregnant much?” is my first response. I will not be surprised to see a baby born in the next six months. The dress is so obvious about hiding her mid-section. She’s either pregnant or just doesn’t know how to pick a flattering wedding dress. Plus the pink color and ruffles make it look like something from the “My Little Pony” store.

    • deehunny says:

      I changed my name only because it meant so much to him.

      Besides the history of women being property, etc., for many men it truly symbolizes a lifelong commitment to them. I wasn’t thrilled to change my name because I felt I was changing my identity, but I did it for the hubby; and alas, business purposes. My new last name is WASP vs. maiden Russian-Jewish last name.

  2. LeeLoo says:

    I wonder how she’ll feel about the jackpot when he cheats on her for the first time in the marriage?

    • T.C. says:

      I think she will be happy being Mrs. Timberlake cheating or no cheating. She will think having his last name makes her better than his mistresses. Poor deluded fool, a last name and a ring can’t keep you warm at night.

    • Liv says:

      He cheated already (before the wedding), so apparently it’s no big deal for her.

  3. Birdie says:

    Isn’t that what almost every actress does? Jennifer Aniston was privately Jennifer Pitt, I am sure Blake Lively had it changed and so on. Why the need to announce it?

    • hoya_chick says:

      Lol I know right? Famewhores. No one cares. I’m curious by actress’ whose brands have been ruined by name changes. Most people keep their names for professional use and change it in their personal life.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      “Why the need to announce it?”

      Um…cuz she was asked? Crazy oversharing fameho–actually answering questions she was asked in an interview…

  4. Dirtnap says:

    Oh, you hit the jackpot alright, Jessica.

    • Shaz says:

      yeah, don’t see how that is “the jackpot of names”…unless she means cash & influence make up for being married to a narcissist…I’d rather have a man of normal means who adores me

  5. Eve says:

    Team Gawker and Team Whoever-leaked-that-video.

    • shixa says:

      You know it, girl.

      And it was ALL over late night tv last night too….whaaa!

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Word. I don’t feel bad for Jessica at all. She knew exactly what she was getting and who she was getting, I won’t believe anything else for a second.
      And if they’re suing Gawker, they ALL know exactly how heinous that video is and that it should never even have been mentioned as an idea, much less shown at a wedding. The whole thing is so vile and I judge all of them. That real estate douche, JT, and yes, Jessica as well. If you’re willing to marry someone whose sense of humor includes making homeless people the butt of a joke, you don’t deserve pity. I always thought maybe, MAYBE she knew something about JT we didn’t but really, she wanted the ring and the name. I have no respect for either of them.

      I’m sorry for the rant but my God, this is disgusting and I would love to send flowers to whoever leaked this.

      • Jill says:

        Agree with every word littlemissnaughty.

        And I don’t want to hear word one when he publicly flirts/cheats/dumps her ass about “poor Jessica”. Give me a f***ing break! I’m so tired of people happily living with a**hole celebrities like this and then playing the victim card when it ends badly for them.

        If they treat everyone else like crap, eventually they’ll treat you like crap, too. Wake up!

  6. marie says:

    I don’t feel sorry for her, she knew he was a douche before she married him and his massive ego, hope it’s worth it..

  7. pretty says:

    I’ve never thought she’s even remotely pretty.
    She has the worst nose-job gone wrong nose than Ashely Greene.
    Her protruding horse teeth are not helping that either.

  8. jinni says:

    More like the crackpot of names.

    Why feel bad for her?

    She’s been with this dude long enough to know what the deal is and how it will always be. She’s not some young thing being manipulated by an older, more experienced person. She is ride or die for this fool just like her girl Jen Garner is for her douche of a husband. I’m sure Jen has taught Jessica how to “[figure] out [her husband] and [how to] never let him down”. Ha!

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Why wasn´t Jennifer at her wedding though? Maybe it has to do with Ben not liking the Timberdouche nor Jessica?

      • jinni says:

        Maybe Timberdouche only really wanted to invite his friends. Wouldn’t want Jen to bring her genuinely talented, A-list, movie star/director, husband with actual Oscar winning potential to the bash and upstaging JT on HIS big day.

        Or maybe Ben just couldn’t let Jen go because he needs her for the 24/7 asskissery that is an Oscar campaign.

      • dread pirate cuervo says:

        Way late reply, but I recall that one of the reasons Britney & Justin broke up was bc Britney cheated on him with Ben Affleck. & Fred Durst v

  9. brin says:

    A Jessica by any name is still boring.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Definitely Team Gawker. When people do something that gross, they should get called on it.

    I feel a little bad for her too, not only was the bride upstaged by the ego-monster groom, but now all this video stuff sure puts a damper on her pretty, pretty party. But then again, she chose to marry that guy, so I can’t feel too bad for her.

  11. shixa says:

    I’m still giggling at whoever said it looked like she was sitting on the toilet on the People cover yesterday…that’s ALL I see now when I look at it.

    And yes, drink it ALL in girl…you axed for it!

  12. Rhea says:

    Well, since he’s the most famous one between the two and earning more than her, it’s not really a wonder why she’s changing her last name.

  13. judyjudy says:

    It is probably just her posture and the dress but she totally looks pregnant in that kissy photo.

    • Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

      I also thought that in all the photos from the side she looks pregnant. Maybe it’s just that the ruffles on the dress start so high up, but it looks like she could have a baby bump under there.

      I like the colour of the dress but not that the ruffles start so high (like under her breasts). I think she looks pretty in the cover where he’s jumping.

  14. Sunnyinseattle says:

    People always has other pictures on the side of the cover. Usually 3 or 4 others, this tine they only have Brit? Why is that? Coincedence? ;-) (Kinda mean actually, and I say that even though I dislike both Justin and Jessica.)

  15. Madpoe says:

    Well, at least the gal had her Barbie dream wedding to comfort her when he cheats on her left and right.

  16. StephanieMarie2685 says:

    Whatever on the name….

    But OMG she looks SO great with those sideswept-audrey-hepburnlike-baby bangs!!!!

  17. SusieQ says:

    ‘Jackpot of names’?

    Cesspot is more like it.

  18. mk yarwood says:

    Any possibility that he’s her beard?

    • V4Real says:

      I heard that she was a lesbian as well but I’m not buying it. She was with Chris Evans for a few years and I’m willing to bet all the tea in Boston that he was tapping that on the reg. Maybe bi-sexual is a better word.

    • Maxx says:

      I think he is…. lesbian rumors have been following her since before she was with him… I remember seeing a photo of her making out with an “assistant” and I saw a recent blind about her and an “assistant”- she would be way more interesting if that came out cuz right now boiled broccoli is more interesting than this girl….

    • Sunnyinseattle says:

      Why does every person in Hollywood have to be gay or a lesbian? Let’s not throw the beard word out there for every single person just for the sake of using! Sheesh people. It will get overused then no one will believe it when it’s true. :-(

      • V4Real says:

        I get what your sayin @ Sunny. It’s so easy for us to call all of Hollywood gay. We use that word like somethings wrong with it. If anything she might be bi but what’s wrong with that; a large percentage of my friends are bisexual.

        Bisexual as we all know interprets as being attractive to both sexes. It doesn’t mean you are gay or lesbian. One of my closest female friends had a longtime girlfriend but now she has a boyfriend. Hey sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don’t.

        Another friend of mine has a boyfriend and a girlfriend. Now that’s what you call having your cake and eating it too.

        At some point I think we might all have tendencies to be attractive to the same sex, even if we don’t act upon those feelings.

  19. Bluedog says:

    No, it should read:

    So she’ll still be Jessica Biel, “Actress”.

    Because what Jessica does isn’t acting.

  20. Saphana says:

    from a business pov the name timberlake is more “worth”. so if your pr agent tells you that the name is a jackpot, alright i get that.
    but saying that yourself in an interview? totally weird.

  21. Mira says:

    “Once you find that person, go for it.” – Yeah right! Soon Jessica will be downing bourbon saying “Of all the mega douches, in all the towns, in all the world, I walked into this one….another one please.”

    • V4Real says:

      I’m pretty sure she knows as soon as the honeymoon is over he’s going to be Timberlaking all over town.

  22. Jenna says:

    I don’t see the story here; I’m sure most actresses do this all the time. Now if she went the ‘Victoria Beckham’ route that’d be a different story. And she’s Jessica Biel. I’m pretty sure doesn’t have a “brand” to protect.

    And I still hate that wedding dress. It looks like she wrapped herself in cotton candy.

    • Bronwyn says:

      I agree.
      It ain’t the prom honey, no matter how much money you spent on it. No bueno.

      • Little Darling says:

        No bueno is right!! I can’t believe of all the styles she chose this one for her dream wedding. The fit is just off, she has THE best body in Hollywood and all you can see are her shoulders and arms!

  23. Mia 4S says:

    How about they both change their names? I suggest Mr and Mrs Narcissistic Dumbass.

  24. shewolf says:

    I dont really like them… they seem smug.

  25. Shitler says:

    It was so nice of Mr & Mrs Timberdouche to show us how the elite one percenters entertain themselves- watching mockumentaries of those creatures “the poor”.

  26. tonina says:

    Even though they’re using the same photograph, i like the Who cover more than People.

  27. Amy C says:

    I don’t see the bad thing on changing your name it is a kind of tradition…So if the girl wanted to do it not forced in to it, it is fine and sometimes even cute.
    JT probably have a bit of ego problem but he married the exact girl who can stand that about him. Just like BA did, now if they only tell how to find one for Tommy. LOL
    Anways, Congradulation for them. Marriage is a good thing and wedding pictures are always cute to look at even not the very good ones so..

    • Christina says:

      It’s also a ‘tradition’ that women effectively become their husband’s property on marriage. Changing your surname is a vestige of this ‘tradition’. Not one I particularly want to perpetuate.

      • LAK says:

        i am so glad that i come from a culture where everyone has their own name. nothing to do with parents yadayada AND no tradition of a male [your father] giving away property [you] to another male [your husband] or continued perpetuating of same with name changes etc.

        When we are married, it’s your father’s eldest SISTER who is charged with making sure that the family [ we see it as marrying family, not just the husband] that you marry into is aware of your worth/value and will treat you right.

        The price they ask for this from the groom’s family is a reflection of what they consider your worth to be.

        On a different note, one of my english friends had HER hubby change HIS surname to HERS.

    • Amy C says:

      I still think name change is n’t bad. I don’t like her dress much though and pink? no

  28. Lady_Luck says:

    That pink wedding dress is so fug.

    So barbie.

    She should have really re-thought the dress…She may be a bit yawnworthy and pathetic (especially marrying J-douche) but she is somebody that with her face and figure would have really pulled off a nice, white number, or if insistent on an eclectic edge – perhaps an ivory or beige one.

    But pink ? Seriously, give me strength. The girl is clinging to her childhood – in a huge way. Sad.

    • Little Darling says:

      The more I think about it, the more I scratch my head at this dress choice. It’s like she specifically wanted to look like a pink frothy mess. Why is that? Odd.

  29. Sabrine says:

    Her nose is odd. In some photos it looks horrible. In others it looks cute, must be the angle. As for JT, she is most welcome to him. On talk shows, he seems like an overgrown, full of himself boy who hasn’t quite grown up yet.

    That dress is just gorgeous.

  30. haha says:

    did like JT, hate JB aka now mrs. JT too…Hate them both now.

  31. I'm going to Guam! says:

    Honestly, I think her dress is ugly and it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s pink.
    Those ruffles are everywhere and make her look big plus I dislike strapless wedding dresses.

  32. sassy says:

    Omg guys! On the side bar of the magazine it had a picture of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton!! I totally thought that was Lindsay lohan! !!!

  33. Maritza says:

    She looks beautiful in her pink wedding dress,different and out of the ordinary. I wish them happiness and many babies.

  34. MST says:

    She can change her name all she wants, but it doesn’t matter — she’ll always be a mediocre actress who just doesn’t have much of a big screen presence.

  35. HappyJoyJoy says:

    I don’t think she’s trying to convince anyone more than she’s trying to convince her self. Who says stuff like than when they know they’re going to be quoted? that, or maybe the douchebaggery of her hubby has rubbed off on her. Either way, I think she thinks she’s going to make him settle down, but the Timberdong (just like always) will be itching for some strange in no time.

  36. Shelly says:

    Poor Jessica my ass! If Justin is to be judged by his loser friends then she is to be judged by her association to her loser husband.

  37. jani says:

    Hopefully, the repulsive Timberdouches and the sub-human Justin Huchel, creator of “the wedding video”, are all just one dishonest agent/manager/accountant/lawyer, or Bernie Madoff away from homelessness themselves.

    To give their disgusting wedding a little more atmosphere, they made the staff at the posh resort where it was held dress up like peasants. Wouldn’t want anyone to get confused about who is peasanty and who is not.

    • Susie (1 of 3) says:

      Yes, thank you for mentioning the staff dressed as peasants. I forgot I wanted to complain about this. When I saw the pictures, I thought, I bet GOOP was pissed she didn’t think of this first.

  38. Adrien says:

    I’m not a fan of Justin but I don’t know why he is called a “douche” here. What douchey thing has he done apart from excessive falsetto-ing?

  39. alys says:

    I have been told this before and I have found it to be true, even if it isn’t immediately evident.

    Like attracts like.

    So, whether the alleged cheating by her new husband or finding homelessness funny I believe she knows what she is getting into.

  40. Apples says:

    She really was glowing on her wedding day, kind of feel bad for her.

    She seems like a nice, non-toxic personality comparative to other LA actresses, which does make her seem relatively boring.

    She has a bit part (as the dead wife?) in a movie (Deep & Blue Sea?) that should shoot this winter. That’s it, no other roles. So much for the engagement/wedding to Timberlake effect.

    After movie, she will get pregnant as soon as possible. I AM CALLING IT- baby in 2013- place your bets here!!

    • V4Real says:

      There’s a BLIND on CDAN that says a recent married actrees might be with child. Some believe it’s either Jessica or Blake. But you know, we can’t believe those blinds. Once they said that these two were not even going to make it to the alter.

  41. Mar says:

    His status is so much higher then his so this is no shocker.
    I didn’t change my last name because we are all girls an I wanted the name to carry.

  42. The Original Mia says:

    Don’t feel sorry for her. She’s known for awhile that Justin & his friends are douches of the highest caliber. Just this summer she was apologizing to waiters in Atlanta for his crappy behavior. She knows who she married.

  43. Bella says:

    Actually, I’m a French Canadian, residing in Quebec, and I sadly couldn’t change my last name officially. I can use my husband’s name (we’ve been married 3 years btw) privately but professionally and for all things official (like driver’s license, government papers, etc…), I still have to use my maiden names.

  44. yellowshaba says:

    No one is commenting on how fake these pictures seem. Usually wedding pics have this natural aura of love to the bride and groom. Here they both look posed try hard. It totally is not coming across of two people in wedding bliss. Him jumping up with that doofy look on his face, she is just smiling for the camera. wow not feelin the love here, seems so fake

  45. Quinn says:

    Ugh. Only Hollywood could convince anyone what Timberdouche is attractive…he was cute as a kid, but not so much as an adult. The personality does NOT help the issue.

  46. lori says:

    I love the expression on Britney’s face on the inset pic of her that People used. “and y’all made fun of me for K-Fed, bitches” LOL!

  47. PrettyTarheel says:

    Kaiser-are you guys going to cover the “apology” letter? I have some scathing commentary on his idea of an apology, but I want to save it for the relevant post.

    • TG says:

      I agree his apology letter is one of the most non-apologies of all time. I too have such furious thoughts on that little punk that I can’t even get it into words. But, just briefly, do not start an apology reminding us of your charitable works, because we already know you behave one way in public and reserve your more crass self for private. I could go on but frankly as I said before I am so insensed that this punk thinks this is an apology that I can’t even put my thoughts down rationally. Please let this guys career be over and that doormat jessica can go down with him.

  48. mln89 says:

    i hope that somehow, justin hochul pays for exploiting these homeless people. and in THIS economy, anyone could end up on the street or in financial dire straights. homeless people have dignity too. if i was hochul i wouldn’t bother trying to sue gawker, because it will draw even more attention to the despicable way he used the sad circumstances of the mentally ill and homeless for the personal enjoyment of his miserable millionaire friends.

    anyway, i like the second people cover much better then the first all pink one. as for jessica taking justin’s name, why not? its not like she’s a huge celebrity on her own.

  49. Xantha says:

    Apparently Justin just posted an apology on his website. Here’s Lainey’s take on the whole thing. I don’t know what to think of it.

    http://www.laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/25008/Justin-Timberlake-jokes-through-his-apology-about-homeless-video

    • hoya_chick says:

      Lol I’m not a Lainey reader but her write up was superb. He never once said sorry. His jokes weren’t funny and he came across as a total prick! He has pr people? no? What kind of letter of apology is that? No one stepped in and corrected that mess and told him to actually be sincere?! Total loser, he has no redeeming qualities as far as I’m concerned.

      • Loira says:

        Well, he was sincere, he did not mention the homeless people used for his video, nor he apologised in any way to them. All he did was to defend his friends and heroically take the blame and making sure. Everyone knew that still, it was not his fault at all.

    They both knew what was happening and they didn’t care. That video is what they really think of the “losers”, most of them American veterans.
    Did you think anal-rentetive Jessica would let anything happen with Justin that she didn’t know about? Please. They both don’t care.
    Karma always gets her share. One day both of them will be sleeping in a park-forgotten.

  51. SusieQ says:

    Saw the ‘apology’ over on Laineys site and it has got to be the most insincere ‘apology’ I’ve ever read.

    He’s not sorry for the video – he’s just sorry the world found out ABOUT the video and in turn can now see what a despicable person he really is.

  52. skuddles says:

    Of course she’s changing her name – she has no real identity outside of her relationship with him. Sure she thinks it will give her more “clout”.

  53. Aqua says:

    I just read the letter of apology and I could hardly get through it.It was all about himself and coming to the defense of his so called friend(s)I am truly sicken by it.Not once did I read how sorry he was about using the homeless people for his amusement.This video shows more about who JT is as a person more than anything else.

      EXACTLY! Aqua, disgusting. It was douchy and defensive and was not even sincere. I wouldn’t have expected anything less from that a-hole. For anyone who wants to read it, it’s on his twitter and people mag who’ve been suspiciously quiet did a nice lil celeb approved write up. Like I said in the other thread. I was never a fan of either of them but after this even more so. Here’s the link: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20642622,00.html

      He had NO idea it was even being made! He thought it was tasteless and made in poor judgement! Why is this such a big deal? The friend that made it should be the one getting guff! It wasn’t played at the wedding, he had nothing to do with it and didn’t even know about it. Jesus!

      • LAK says:

        You are the company You keep.

        No way would the friend have made such a video if he didn’t think JT would fins it funny.

        They [JT] are now simply reacting to the bad PR. And it’s a none denial denial….’i am sorry YOU were offended’ not ‘i am sorry I offended everyone’

  54. Nev says:

    I gotta say I am not surprised…considering how he ditched Janet in that whole mess….

    he seems really obnoxious. just does. bringing sexy back.I.don’t.think.so.

  55. LittleDeadGirl says:

    Wow, even I’m beginning to feel sorry for her …

  56. EscapedConvent says:

    I would think it would be tedious to do all that paperwork for a marriage that will be temporary. Did she really say it’s the jackpot of names?! Odd.

  57. sam1925 says:

    I clicked on this story because I couldn’t believe that a simple name change was a big deal. I’m baffled as to why this is news considering most women change their names, even celebrities. They may not change it professionally but definately privately.

  58. slh says:

    Her worship him is sickening. Timberlake is the coolest name she ever heard?

    More like “I Like You More Than Rihanna, I Promise!”. It’s funny since the beginning of their union in 2007, he’s been spotted with Rihanna 3 times.

  59. Jaded says:

    Dear Justin:

    In response to your so-called letter of apology, I’d like to make a few suggestions for the next time you make an utter fool of yourself and try to throw everyone else under the bus for it:

    1. Accept the blame – you were as much a part of that video as your friends who made it were. They obviously know your sick sense of humour.

    2. Keep it brief. The more you ramble on with psuedo-philosophical and moral platitudes, the dumber and more guilty you appear.

    3. Run it by a proper editor before you publish it. Your letter was rife with grammatical and syntax errors and made you look even more of a fool than you already are.

    4. A large donation to a homeless charity might redeem you in some small way, certainly in a better way than a letter that was more of a cop-out than an apology. Letters are cheap, donations mean more.

    For someone who obviously spent a fortune on getting married, maybe you could put the same amount of money where your stupid, arrogant mouth is and make a difference in the lives of the hopeless people you and your sick friends so cruelly lampooned.

  60. Lorrie says:

    I can’t tell if she looks more like a cupcake or a bottle of pepto.

  61. Vesper says:

    What caught my eye was the statement,

    “But Biel…is most excited about building a life with her new husband…”

    Haven’t they been together for something like five years? Wouldn’t they have already built a life together? What exactly does she think will change?

  62. it'sjustblanche says:

    I like her face. It’s not beautiful in the traditional sense but it’s interesting. I also like that she works hard at her shape.

    No real opinion on her as an actress but he seems like a tool.

  63. hmm says:

    I believe this couple is one that is together merely on looks alone.
    All they do is go jogging and stare at each other.
