As pop culture lovers, we can't help but get giddy with envy when two hot and talented celebrities join hearts. Especially when they're both every '90s kid's dream person. Because let's face it, when NSYNC came around - all eyes were on one person: Justin Timberlake (okay, and maybe JC Chasez, but that was really it). And around the same time, TV series, 7th Heaven hit our screens and we all fell head over heels for Mary Camden, AKA Jessica Biel. So when these two finally got together in 2007, every '90s kid watched their fantasy crushes find each other and it was then that we knew - we had all lost our chances. Shoot! But after 10 years, a wedding, a baby, and two successful careers, Justin and Jessica continue to defeat the odds and prove real love in Hollywood can be done. And here are 15 times these two proved just that.
Let's just soak in this moment. Can you imagine walking into a Starbucks or a cafe and seeing two people who are this good-looking just playing Scrabble together and sipping on wine? The best part about this scene is they're not sipping on the referred five ounce pour of wine, Jessica's glass is practically filled to the brim which further proves she's everyones dream gal. Not to mention she's good at Scrabble! Sorry Justin, you can't be good at singing, dancing, acting, and Scrabble. Jessica deserves this win.
But besides the wine, there's something so intimate about two global celebrities staying at home and playing Scrabble with one another over a glass of wine. Just two good-looking people, expanding their word knowledge in their simple life; nothing to see here.
Back in January, Jessica hit up The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her new movie, The Book of Love. But you can't be on Ellen without having a couple of laughs. The two decided to surprise Justin with a little phone call live on air. But that's not what made the show so swoon-worthy, no, no. It's how perfect Justin is at everything. "Literally, every year we're married I'm looking for that thing he really sucks at...I am going to find it. I'm going to expose it to everybody." Girl, good luck with that. Even when the two funny ladies pranked Justin with some baby news (don't worry, she's not pregnant again, they're just adopting Ellen as their own - that's all), he said he was currently making sweet potato fries. Like, is there anything this man can't do? Just casually whipping up some dinner shirtless (I bet) while chatting to his amazing wife and Ellen DeGeneres - as if it's so normal!
Come on, Justin Timberlake can't be with someone who can't poke fun at themselves and have a good time! Have you seen this man on Saturday Night Live? He's funnier than people give him credit for.
The two hit up a Lakers game back in January and Jessica couldn't hold back her dance moves as music played. Luckily for us, someone was sure to photograph every move and every giggle between the two making all of our hearts soar. Before Jessica blessed us with her dance moves, she told Extra TV in order to keep romance alive "You have to make it a priority, I think no matter what, whether you have kids or don't have kids, you just have to continue to date." After seeing pictures like this of the two - I'm going to take her word for it.
Is there anything more romantic and binding than having a child together? Justin told the world that he and Jessica were pregnant by this sweet picture on Instagram. Then, the two finally welcomed baby Silas in April of 2015. Justin told The Tonight Show that parenting "is the most insanely amazing, wonderful, unbelievable thing to ever happen to you.." And having a partner as amazing and supportive as Jessica can't hurt either, but that doesn't come without a little speed bumps; because as rewarding as parenting is, Jessica admitted it's "It's incredibly hard, the hardest job in the world and I've never been more thankful and grateful to my own mother."
With the likes of Justin & Jessica, John Legend & Chrissy Teigen, and Jessie James & Eric Decker, it's clear fans are attracted to couples who are relatable—down to earth. We can see little parts of our relationships in these couples. You know, besides the pay checks, 90210 zip code, and Hollywood perks - but still!
Excuse me for a second, I'm still swooning at this moment. This isn't just a picture. This isn't just a pose for some photographers. This isn't just another act for publicity. This is as raw as it gets for Justin and Jessica. Look at him leaning down to kiss her hand! Who in the world still kisses their lady's hand!? A southern gentleman - that's who. And that's what Justin is. When it comes to being married to Jessica, Justin told PopSugar;
"Every once in a while I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn't see me looking and I have this moment when I'm like, 'If you never make a good decision, if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision.' It's nice to marry your friend, it's nice to marry your best friend. It suits me." BRB crying.
I feel like whenever a celebrity wins an award, we're all sitting on glass just waiting to hear their acceptance speech. Are they going to keep it short and thank the voters? Or are they going to have a touching moment and thank their loved ones? Well, leave it to Jessica and Justin to completely own the acceptance speech game. Whether it's a deep thank you to their partner or a little joke thrown in about the other person - there's no way they can ever say one does not feel appreciated.
At the 2014 People's Choice Awards, Justin thanked his wife Jessica for teaching him about life. Like patience, and "putting the dishes IN the dishwasher." I know Justin is poking fun at himself, but he does it in a way that gives total credit to his love, Jessica. Which, once again, makes us all swoon.
If I asked my fiancé to give me a piggy back ride, he would ask me if I was five years old. I don't know what it is about piggy back rides! They're so fun and just make you feel like a giddy kid again. Well, that and we can take a break from walking for a bit. Just take a look at Justin—he can totally handle it. He seems to have a tight grasp around Jessica and she looks as if there is no better way of transpiration than this. I know this photo is super old (from 2008, about a year into dating), but it only furthers my point how these two know how to keep the flame alive. They're constantly holding, kissing, and playing with one another out and about. It doesn't matter if there are 10 guys with cameras following them or if they're on their own front yard - these two stay true to themselves.
Between the two of them, Justin is by far more vocal about his relationship with Jessica Biel; blame the inner song bird in him! She caught herself a rare breed because I feel like these days, we need to pull teeth and nails just to find out if the person you're dating prefers pizza over Chinese food. But just because these two have is so good now, doesn't mean Justin was ever not nervous about being around Miss Biel, because she definitely kept him on his toes.
"We met and got talking. Afterwards I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out... I did it the old fashioned way—by telephone. That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather—that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn't have to die with the birth of the Internet... 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."
We. Are. Breathless! What an intimate moment caught on film! I feel bad someone was intruding on their little Italian vacation, but damn, this is one steamy moment! This photo was snapped when the two were vacationing in Rome, and call us crazy, but it could easily be placed in one of Justin's music videos. Cue the music!
Apparently, these two skipped the big name Roman restaurants and hit up local hole-in-the-walls instead; soaking up the culture, wine, and evidently, each other. It's clear these two have a connection in more ways than one, you don't hold on to someone like that if you merely like the person. But when you're dating THE Justin Timberlake and THE Jessica Biel, what's not to love?
The Vanity Fair Oscars Party is one of the best parts about the Oscars. The have the hottest celebs, the best photo-shoots, and top notch food. (Not like I've ever been there, but c'mon, I read things.) The two decided to take part in their photo booth and took the prize for cutest couple at the party. Just look at their playful nature! You know what, seeing this picture makes me wonder who their celeb-besties are. Do they have a duo that comes over for home cooked dinners and game nights? Or maybe the Biel-Timberlake pair take baby Silas over for a kids play date as the adults catch up over a bottle of red. Hmmm, something tells me these two would kick it off famously with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Throw in some chicken wings, some booze, kiddie playpens, and we have a winning squad!
I don't know if it's the wind in her hair, his tight embrace, or the way their lips fit together like a damn puzzle, but this 'caught off guard' photo could be a poster for a movie. And I want to see it!
Back in November, Justin flew down to New Orleans to visit Jessica while she was on set for her movie, Shock and Awe, and gave each other quite the warm welcoming. Through two busy and drifting careers, it's sweet these two somehow make it work. When it comes to the balance between life and work, he told Variety, "My life has changed and is changing. So it's important to discover that there's work you can do where you get more time with your 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. 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." Amen Justin, amen.
If you haven't noticed already, these two enjoy being silly together. Just because their in the public eye doesn't mean they need to change who they are as a couple. The glorious thing is, the pair has somehow found a way to let fans into their relationship without revealing too much. It's almost like their actions and acceptance speeches say enough—and we're crazy about them for it!
This sweet moment was when the two were court-side at the Lakers game and decided to give the fans what they were asking for after the jumbo-tron caught a glimpse of them. You would think the fans were there to see the basketball game or something, but I have a feeling there was a second major reason for showing up - and it was worth it!
You know you're a busy person (and a big deal) when your date nights are also charity events. Both Justin and Jessica are very charitable people, and shared their work—along with their romance—with the crowd at the 11th Annual GLSEN Respect Awards Ceremony. The two were honored at the event and given the Inspiration Award for the work and support they have shown for the LGBT youth.
While accepting their award, the two wore matching 'Respect' hats and referred to themselves as a new boy band which, of course, made us all giggle. How can the both look so elegant yet so down to earth at the same time? Justin also noted that the evening was a date night for the new parents and reminded Jessica to do something for him. "Honey, look around. This is what adults look like … They don’t smell like poopy diapers.”
Are these two even real human beings? I understand these two are athletic in their own right and enjoy working out. However, no matter how often you workout, your workouts can progressively get harder eventually. So how is it that these two look this flawless mid run?! Are they even sweating or is that glitter? They're both rocking the Nike apparel and matching white hats. They're both plugged into their music and they're just two normal folk going for a run. Trust me, if I looked this good mid run, I would run more often. Somehow my hat would fly off, my shoes would become untied and trip me, and my hair would be completely drenched. But these two? Robots. If they wanted to quit acting and singing and switch over to modeling, no one would even bat an eye.
"Just being married. It's so funny, it feels like nothing's changed and yet everything's changed. It's kind of that intangible thing, you can't quite put your finger on it, but I guess the idea of having a partner in crime and I guess the word 'husband' is pretty amazing. I'm loving it!"
Jessica's words to ABC News say it all. The crazy thing about it is, this picture from their Italian wedding day in 2012, still looks just like their life today in 2017. Both still smiling, playing around, and in love. Can we also give credit to Jessica for rocking a pink wedding gown!? It's so whimsical and romantic, this dress was literally made for her on this special day. The two tied the knot in an evening ceremony in front of friends and family with candles around every corner you looked. And unlike other popular celebrities who pulled the trigger and tied the knot, these two are committed for the long haul.
