Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have been married for seven years now. However there was a time when Biel wouldn’t even give the nascent boy bander the time of day, as she admitted to Jimmy Fallon throughout an look on his Tonight Present this week.
After reminiscing about their wedding ceremony, Fallon reminded Biel that there was a time she wasn’t a giant NSYNC fan. (Don’t fear: she wasn’t into the Backstreet Boys both, so it wasn’t a rival boy band type of factor.) As an alternative, she was a giant fan of issues like musicals, telling Fallon she knew each phrase to Hire. “I, like, lived below a rock,” she recalled.
However after all Fallon couldn’t let that lie. He unearthed footage of Biel from a 1999 interview by which she’s requested about her curiosity in NSYNC. “To be trustworthy, I don’t pay attention… I do know of them, after all,” she shrugged. “I’m not an enormous fan. However, I imply, cool I suppose.” It’s probably the most nonchalant and unbothered of rejections of one of many greatest popular culture phenomenons of the late ’90s.
Sarcastically, after all, Biel would meet Timberlake a number of years later and by 2012 they’d be married. (They now share one four-year-old little one collectively too, Silas.) So all of it labored out for Timberlake ultimately — even when it wasn’t his NSYNC fame that essentially gave him his shot at fortunately ever after with Biel.
However did she come round to their music finally? In line with her story to Fallon, she’s just about simply as detached as ever. Looks as if some skilled distance may be the important thing to their longevity.
