Jessica Biel: Justin Timberlake is ‘my biggest supporter’

Did anyone watch Jessica Biel’s The Sinner? As you know, I am not a big TV show person so at first I was just going to leave it. But the trailer intrigued me enough to think I might Game of Thrones it (skip it and just read Kaiser’s recaps). But I bought into the hype and recorded it although I haven’t watched it yet. Without even seeing it, I’m dying to know why she did it and not in a jump-to-the-end kind of way, I want the slow reveal and the “OMG!” moment when I find out (obviously I have not read the book).

One person who is definitely watching The Sinner will be Jessica’s husband, Justin Timberlake, because he’s Jess’ biggest supporter. No, for real – he came to the premiere and everything. Oh wait, no he didn’t – he tweeted his Instagram post saying she was really good in her starring role before the premiere but didn’t actually show up.

Just hours after her husband Justin Timberlake raved about her work on social media, Jessica Biel stepped out solo for the NYC premiere of her new USA Network thriller “The Sinner.”

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Jessica on the red carpet, where she gushed over Justin. The 35-year-old blushed, saying, “He’s the best.” 

“He’s been, honestly, my biggest supporter throughout the whole experience,” she went on. “This has been such an intense work experience for my family. I haven’t ever worked full-time while having a child. When you do that, your partner has to take up all the slack. He’s just been an angel and been so supportive of this for me and my career and this moment — it’s been really nice.” 

Biel revealed that JT has no problem being on daddy duty for their son Silas. “He does it all,” she said. “He’s the diaper king.”

In “The Sinner,” Biel plays Cora, a young mother living in upstate New York who commits a brutal act of violence against a stranger. Of her tough role, she said, “You just kind of black out sometimes during work… In the middle of the scene, you’re tapping into something that’s quite dark, or intense, or scary, and somebody calls ‘Cut!’ and you go, ‘What happened? Was that okay?’ I don’t even know what happened, and I’m just gonna go with it and hope there is some authenticity there and people can relate to it.”

Since I am having a Grade A crappy day and I need all the karma I can get, I will try to be fair and say that maybe Justin is in LA with their son Silas and that is why he was not at the New York City premiere. Of course, he also could have been in their Manhattan Penthouse and couldn’t find the right shoes to upstage Jessica on the Red Carpet. Okay, karma be damned.

Jessica hasn’t, “ever worked full-time since having a child”? Didn’t she open a restaurant? How does one open a restaurant and not work full time? I’m still recovering from opening a restaurant in 1997 and I was just the head bartender. But if what she is saying about ‘supportive’ Justin is true, then I’m glad she has the support system in place to feel guiltless about pursuing her career. Because she deserves to pursue hers just as much as Justin deserves to pursue his career… and play golf. And go to concerts. Did anyone else read into, “been so supportive of this for me and my career and this moment,”? I read that in Jessica’s surprised voice. It also kind of makes me wonder what his reaction will be to the next moment because let’s face it, hanging out backstage isn’t really Justin’s thing. I get that she is appreciative of her husband’s support but I hope she didn’t feel obligated to make her appreciation the focus of her red carpet interviews. She’s at her own premiere of the show in which she is starring, can’t it for once be about her?

Speaking of the Timberlakes’ support unit, I will end on a nice note. This post from Justin was very sweet. He can really turn up the charm when he wants to.

    Jessica, I do not believe you.

  2. minx says:

    I actually think these two are well suited because she doesn’t seem to mind playing second fiddle to him. He’s the star of the family and she seems fine being Mrs. Star.

    • ab says:

      I think so too. their dynamic reminds me a little bit of my own relationship. my husband is self-centered in a non-malicious way, very much an extroverted attention seeker type, and I am … not. from the outside people probably look at us like ???? but it works. I don’t follow a lot of gossip about jessica but she seems pretty low-key. justin probably couldn’t function in a relationship with someone who needed as much of a spotlight as he does.

  3. QueenB says:

    No way does Justin ME ME ME ME ME ME Timberlake take a step back and play the supportive partner. Maybe in front of a camera and in interviews. He probably already hates the kid because people gush more about it than about him.

    Also Lainey summed up his attention hoeing:

  4. Yeahright says:

    Well at least two people will watch her show!

  5. LilyM says:

    Well, he’s her man and he tries to give off a “good guy” public image, it’s not like he’s a “thug,” so for her to say anything other than “my man is my biggest supporter,” would be crazy. Doesn’t EVERY couple that considers themselves to be in a healthy relationship say that their mate is their biggest supporter? See, this is why people treat her like she’s dense and simple, it’s because she says and does dense and simple things.

  6. crazydaisy says:

    She has such an otherworldly (almost alien) look. I find her very beautiful, but strange. Can’t put my finger on it. Thoughts?

    • Molly says:

      I can’t STAND the flat hair with the stringy bangs that she’s wearing these days, but that’s probably not what you meant.

  7. Zuzus Girl says:

    I watched the first episode of her show. I haven’t read the book but I was intrigued. I figured out what happened to her character as soon as the killing happened but that’s not her fault as an actress. She’s okay in the role so far but as always, she lacks range. Love Bill Pullman in more serious roles. I’ll keep watching to see where it goes.

    Timberlake is a hyperactive, narcissistic brat but I guess they get what they need from each other.

  8. Originaltessa says:

    Her show was good. She was ok, good enough to keep me tuning in for next week.

  9. Shutterbug99 says:

    I watched the trailer for her new show and also found it intriguing in a ‘definitely maybe might watch this at some point’ kinda way. That said, the reviews I’ve read have not been all that favourable towards it. Has anybody here seen it?

    I just can’t get past her insufferable husband. What a WANKER!
