Jessica Biel shares the secret to her healthy marriage
American actor Jessica Biel (far right) says being selfish and dedicated to their work has allowed her and husband, singer Justin Timberlake (right), maintain a strong bond.
The 35-year-old, who has a two-year-old son Silas with Timberlake, adds that the secret to their successful 10-year relationship is that they’re both “career-focused”.
Speaking to the US version of Marie Claire magazine, Biel, known for films such as Total Recall and Valentine’s Day, says, “We have similar values; we believe in loyalty, honesty. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things.”
She adds, “Also, in the business, we’re all very career-oriented, and you have to be a little selfish. I 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!”
