Jessica Biel tells People Magazine that she will be changing her name, after her wedding to music superstar Justin Timberlake. She tells People Magazine [who also covered her wedding exclusively], “Yes, I’m changing my name. 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. It’s hard to find that one person in the world,” Jessica shared. “Once you find that person, go for it. That kind of commitment is very special.”
Biel and Timberlake got married to much fanfare in Italy after years of dating, but Timberlake ended up not inviting most of his NSYNC bandmates, the band that made him famous. However, Biel supposedly did invite her costars from 7th Heaven. Regardless, their wedding was one of the most talked about events of the past year, and the wedding pictures reportedly sold to People for approximately 300,000 dollars.
Justin has also reportedly been taking a backseat to music, and is concentrating on his film career much more these days. After breaking out in ‘The Social Network’, he’s gone on to headline ‘In Time’ and had a supporting role in this fall’s ‘Trouble with the Curve’. Biel’s career, on the other hand, has slowed down significantly over the past couple of years, with her only major upcoming role being a small supporting role in next year’s ‘Hitchcock’. Let’s hope this wedding helps her get back on Hollywood’s radar.
