“A gentleman never fails to captivate a woman,” said someone. Ask the ladies and they will tell you there is nothing more sexy and lovable than a man who has values, who respects his woman and treats her like his queen. While we might feel it’s difficult to find such a man, Hollywood actor and pop singer Justin Timberlake gives us hope.
The celebrity, who is married to the love of his life Jessica Biel has always been a gentleman even before they actually started dating. Timberlake first met, actress and model Jessica Biel at a surprise party in 2006. Though he noticed her and their similar sense of humor, Timberlake did not make a move.
However, soon after, sparks flew when the stars locked eyes in 2007 at the Gloden Globes. The events that followed were not often seen in many modern love stories. Even after getting her number, he decided to ask her permission before approaching her for a date. “My friend called Jessica and Jessica said yes, and so I called her.”
While some call his way a bit old fashioned, the actor takes it as a compliment. He says it is important fo him. “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.” He added,” The way I see it, if you’re asking a girl out on a date, it’s only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. 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 duo started dating each other but it took a while for them to be exclusive to each other. However, busy with their successful careers, the two took it slow. In an interview with James Corden, Beil opened up about how Timberlake never pushed for them to be physically intimate. “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,” said the 37-year-old.
Their romance was budding slowly with a very patient Timberlake who was ready to give his woman the time to grow in love. Soon, they went public about the relationship and the 38-year-old could not stop gushing about her. They were spotted together and often spoke about their love for each other.
However, in March 2011, the lovely couple parted ways. Despite their break up and several surrounding rumors, Timberlake had nothing but good things to say about the woman he had dated for four years. “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, OK? So I protect it, and until somebody shows me what would be more fulfilling at this point, that’s what I have to do,” said the Friends with Benefits actor. “I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me—for instance, her,” added the actor. He remained the gentleman and did not reveal the details of the split.
Though their romance was rocky, nothing could keep them away. Within a few months, they got back together and announced their engagement in December 2011. The following year, the couple tied the knot and promised to be by each other’s side. Ever since, they have shown the world what a good and respectable relationship looks like. In 2015, they welcomed their baby, Silas. The celebrity couple is seen to show off their cute moments on social media. They have also been vocal about their relationship.
“You have taught me so much about what true love means. I can’t put into words what these last five years have meant to me,” wrote the actor on their wedding anniversary in 2017. Recently, the actor said that his wife was the one for him. “It’s like, once you find that person, it’s like a baptism, where you’re like, ‘I can’t go back,’ you know what I mean?” told Timberlake to Entertainment Tonight. It is no doubt that his chivalry paid him back with a wonderful wife.
