What makes a marriage to superstar Justin Timberlake work? In a new interview with Marie Claire, Jessica Biel touches on just that, as she discusses acting, motherhood, and her marriage.
The actress, who’s starring in USA’s psychological thriller The Sinner, reveals what makes her marriage tick. “We have similar values,” she explains. “We believe in loyalty, honesty. We like to have fun. We like a lot of the same things.”
And as far as their busy careers go? Biel adds: “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!”

Biel and Timberlake, who were married in 2012, welcomed their son Sylas Randall in 2015, and the actress admits she’s learned quite a bit from being a mother.
“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.”
