Jessica Biel on Justin Timberlake: ‘We Didn’t Kiss for a Very Long Time’

It was tearin’ up her heart! Jessica Biel revealed in a new interview that she and husband Justin Timberlake didn’t kiss each other during their initial stages of dating ten years ago. See what she had to say in the video above!

"We didn't kiss for a very long time because he was on tour, and we were talking on the phone, like normal pre-teens do," the 34-year-old actress said during a Thursday, January 12, appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "We were just chatting on the phone for hours. So, we never really kissed for a very long time."

Even though they couldn’t lock lips, Biel knew from the get-go that the “SexyBack” singer, 35, was Mr. Right.

"I have this email that is really funny that I sent to my producing partner, Michelle, actually, and it's literally, like, 'OK, I can't make that meeting so I have to cancel, also I know I will marry this man, you can't tell anybody but your husband,’” the Seventh Heaven alum told Corden. "I have no idea why I wrote that email. I don't know what he did that day, but I have this hilarious email."

Biel’s prediction eventually came true when she and Timberlake — who began dating in 2007 — tied the knot in a gorgeous Italian wedding ceremony in October 2012. In April 2015, they welcomed their first child, a son named Silas.

During a November 2016 interview with Variety, the former ‘NSync boy bander opened up about how his life has changed since settling down and starting a family.

“I wouldn't go on tour next week, because I wanna be with my son. I wanna be with my wife. … As men, we're always taught at a young age to be a man and have your priorities in order,” the Trolls voice actor explained. “And you get to a point where you're like, 'It's not about "being a man" — it's about fulfillment.' Which is a totally different thing.”
