Like any marriage, Jessica Biel’s marriage to Justin Timberlake is not perfect. Throw in two busy careers, travel, and a kid and it’s a difficult as anything. But, so far, Biel and JT have found a way to make it work and the secret to their success is a little surprising.
Jessica recently told Marie Claire, having a child has actually made their marriage better because it brings out so many different things in you, “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. I’m not that person who feels like, ‘Oh, my whole life changes for my kid,’ but it does.”
She also shared that the superstars have similar values, both personal and career– “We have similar values; we believe in loyalty, honesty. 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.”
So, for the Biel-Timberlake fam, it’s all about being selfless, having fun and being selfish at the right time and not the same time as someone else, “” understand that about my peers — about being focused and driven — and if you can find that and someone who shares the same values as you, it’s like: Score!”
