Justin Timberlake makes no secret of his love for Jessica Biel, whom he wed in 2012. Since first getting together, the two of them have been adorably cute together. From their early days of dating, to their lives as busy parents, we wanted to find out more about what makes their relationship work. Surprisingly, for being a high-profile celebrity couple, they’re more normal than you’d think! Here’s 10 things you might not know about Justin and Jessica’s relationship.
10. How They Met
According to Justin, the story of how he and Jessica got together wasn’t all that special. The two of them started dating in 2007, not long after Justin had ended his 4-year relationship with Cameron Diaz. In a press conference with the Hollywood Foreign press, Justin recalled how they started dating. “There was nothing starry about the way we got together. It was very un-Hollywood-esque, in fact,” Justin said. “We met and got talking. Afterwards I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out. My friend called Jessica and Jessica said yes, and so I called her.” He added, “I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed.” The couple displayed their relationship in public for the first time at the Sundance Film Festival later that year.
