Jessica Biel Shares Her Secret To A Happy Marriage


Jessica Biel said she always knew Justin Timberlake was “the one.”

The actress recently opened up to Marie Claire about what makes her 10-year relationship work. “We have similar values; we believe in loyalty, honestly. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things. Also, in the business, we’re all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish,” Biel, who officially married Timberlake in 2012, said.

“I understand that about my peers — about being focused and driven — and if you can find that and someone who shares that same values as you, it’s like: Score!” she continued.

And Biel said she has also learned lot about being a mother. “You think you’re a selfless person, and then you realize you’re not. These little people come around, and they require so much, and your schedule is really not your own, nor is it important anymore, and it’s very clear that it’s your life now revolving around this dude.”

Becoming a mother has also come in handy for Biel with her next role in The Sinner, an upcoming TV show based on the best-selling German novel by Petra Hammesfahr. “I have challenges standing up for myself sometimes, times when I don’t trust my own voice,” the actress shared. “And that’s the stuff I needed to bring out and explore.”
