Jessica Biel "feels more secure" since marrying Justin Timberlake.
The Hitchcock star - who married the "Cry Me A River" singer, 32, in front of more than 100 close friends and family at the plush Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia, Italy, last October - is willing to make bolder choices, especially when it comes to fashion, because she feels more confident now that they are married.
The 30-year-old actress's close friend and long-time stylist told People.com, "I definitely think any woman changes after [she gets] married. I feel like she feels more secure and safe on the planet having found her partner. It's not 'should I do this or should I do this?' It's like 'Okay, great!'"
Former 7th Heaven star Jessica recently opened up about being married to the "Suit & Tie" singer and admitted it feels amazing: "It feels like nothing's changed, and yet, everything's changed. It's like that intangible thing, you can't quite put your finger on it. But I guess the idea of having a sort-of partner in crime, and the word 'husband,' is pretty amazing."
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are honeymooning on safari.
The newlywed couple - who married in front of more than 100 close friends and family at the plush Borgo Egnazia resort in Puglia, Southern Italy, on October 19 - flew by private jet to Tanzania before boarding a helicopter to the Singita Grumeti reserve in the Serengeti Park.
The 31-year-old "Like I Love You" singer is said to have spent his first few nights as a married man at the luxurious Sasakwa Lodge with his 30-year-old Total Recall star wife, according to the MailOnline. They are reported to have also stayed at the stunning riverside Faru-Faru Lodges in the same 350,000-acre preserve for a few days before leaving on October 30 by helicopter.
The resort's website reveals that each air-conditioned cottage has a heated infinity-edge pool overlooking "where the land stretches forever." They are rumored to have then boarded a private plane to a beach side resort for a few days of relaxation before Jessica begins filming her new movie The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are not in a hurry to have children.
While the couple tied the knot in Italy last weekend, Justin's grandmother Sadie Boma says the happy couple are both too busy with their careers right now to even think about starting a family.
"I don't think they will rush it. I'm not sure they can. They are both away so much that it would be hard to take care of a baby together and I know Justin would want to be there," she said.
However, Sadie insists when the time comes, Justin, 31 and Jessica, 30, will be fantastic parents. "Oh, Justin is going to be the best dad. That boy has always been so great with children, and I know Jessica will be a great mother," she added.
Sadie missed the wedding because her husband Bill is in hospital, but her grandson arranged to send a piece of wedding cake 5,000 miles from Italy to the US for them:
Justin Timberlake is "deeply sorry" to anyone who felt offended by a "joke" wedding video for his and Jessica Biel's nuptials. The 31-year-old singer-and-actor has slammed the "distasteful" clip, which appears to mock homeless people, and while he insists the footage was not actually shown at the couple's wedding in Italy last Friday, he says the person responsible, who is thought to be his close friend Justin Huchel, will be made to do "at least 100 hours of community service."
The "unsavory" tape starts by saying, "Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn't make it," and cuts to several homeless people, transsexuals and street musicians wishing them well with apologies for missing the big day.
In an excerpt from an apologetic letter posted on his website, Justin wrote:
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are married. The "Sexyback" singer married the Total Recall actress in an intimate ceremony at a secret location in Southern Italy, believed to be near Naples.
"It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends," the couple said in a statement.
No other details are known at this time, but the couple - who have been dating for five years and engaged since last December - started celebrating earlier this week with those closest to them. Yesterday they hosted a party where guests relaxed around open fires and dined on fresh-made cheese, local olives and wine. The previous night, the group had a party with fireworks and live music, and on Wednesday as guests were arriving, they held a low key drinks reception.
Justin Timberlake is set to marry Jessica Biel in Italy this week.
The couple are said to have gathered friends and family for an intimate ceremony at a secret location in the southern European country. "They are ready to get married," a source told Us Weekly.
Another source told Life and Style magazine guests do not even know the exact venue beforehand and "were told just to fly to Italy." The source added, "Save-the-dates went out in the spring and little information was given. Guests were warned that any phones or cameras would be confiscated, so best to leave them at the hotel."
The couple have been dating for five years and engaged for ten months, Justin proposed during a Christmas holiday break in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In February sources said the couple had been meeting with a wedding planner and Jessica, 30, had reportedly "told Justin she wants to get married outside at sunset."
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel will marry in a $5 million Italian ceremony.
The couple are planning to wed in the European country in October and Jessica has been busy planning every detail of their big day. "Jessica has claimed she is too busy to plan a wedding but she actually has been very involved in all the details, like every bride," a source said.
Wedding planner Diana Sorenso recently planned some nuptials at 19th century boutique hotel Palazzo Margherita and claims the star-studded nuptials will be held there. "I've heard the wedding will be intimate, in the palm-tree lined outdoor garden area, just aside from the stunning black bottom pool and giant pergola. There will be flowers galore and it will be extremely elegant - the most stunning the palazzo has seen yet," she said.
Those expected to attend include Amy Adams, Ellen DeGeneres and Justin's former *NSync bandmates and guests won't have to spend any money as the generous couple are paying for everything. "Justin and Jessica plan to pay for the entire trip for all their guests and help. That includes private jets, five-star hotels and rental homes, plus food fit for a palace," an insider said.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel celebrated their engagement with a star-studded party on Saturday.
The couple were joined at the bash - which took place at the Social Network actor's friend and HomeMint collaborator Estee Stanley's house in California - by 100 family members and friends, including Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Trace Ayala, Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi and Amy Adams, for a "fun" celebration.
Justin Timberlake has persuaded Jessica Biel to have a big wedding. The 30-year-old actress initially wanted to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony in front of a few guests, but her fiance has now persuaded her to turn the nuptials into a huge celebration.
"Justin and Jessica are planning a big summer wedding. Jessica initially wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding, but Justin from the beginning wanted a big wedding and that's what they have decided on," a source told People.
Jessica has yet to decide on her dress but is "very involved" in planning the ceremony, with the source revealing the couple plan to "include all their friends."
"Justin has promised her the best day ever," the source added.
While Jessica - who split from Justin last year only for them to rekindle their romance before the Social Network star popped the question - hasn't yet found her dress, it was recently claimed she already knows who she wants to design her gown.
Shortly after Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's break-up, everyone was quick to point out how cozy he and his Friends With Benefits co-star Mila Kunis had become.
Being friends with your co-worker is one thing, but have you seen
their chemistry how close they've been at all the award ceremonies lately?
A source close to Justin claims that there is nothing going on between the two: "They're not in a relationship. They star in a movie called Friends with Benefits but they're just friends. That's it. They are not together." Sounds awfully familiar to what sources claimed about Brangelina when Mr. and Mrs. Smith came out...
As for those rumors claiming Kunis was the downfall of Justin and Jessica's 4-year relationship?
"Mila had nothing to do with their break-up. In fact, no one came between them. They decided their relationship ran its course and it was time to move on," the source said.
The film is due out in theaters this July.
