In the August issue of InStyle, Jessica Biel says she had nothing to do with picking out her engagement ring and that it was all Justin Timberlake’s fashion sense.
Jessica Biel said in an interview with the magazine that she was completely surprised by her vintage-style, square-cut diamond engagement ring. “I had no say whatsoever in the engagement ring. I don’t micromanage. He is fearless in his choices and has a real eye for design. And I’ll be honest: He has better taste than I do!”
She went on to tell InStyle that she’ll ask for his opinion in the morning about her outfit and he’ll tell her what he really thinks. She said, “When I walk out of the closet after getting dressed in the morning, I’ll go like this (turns palms upward as if to say, ‘Well?’). And he goes like this (shakes head no). Then he picks again. It’s hilarious.”
Jessica Biel told the magazine that she enjoys his sense of humor and they jive well together. “I can get kind of serious,” she told InStyle. “I have a tendency to be sensitive, so sometimes I can take things a certain way. Jokes help me make light of a situation. It’s good to be able to say, ‘You’re right. I shouldn’t take things so seriously.'”
“In my earlier experiences with relationships, I really was vulnerable to somebody else’s personality, hobbies, and way of life. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become proud of the traits that make me who I am,” Biel added. “Maintaining my individuality is really important to me because otherwise I can easily slip into somebody else’s life. So I’m glad I’m getting better at it. It’s a process, but it’s getting simpler.”
Also being away from your significant other takes a toll on the relationship, so the two of them have a rule not to be away for too long. “The best thing I learned from [my parents] is that you have to put your relationship first. You need to make time for your partner. It’s really easy to let that go by the wayside. It’s easy to say, “Hey, I’ll see you later. I love you.” And you can’t do that.” She went on, “Justin and I have a rule that we don’t let a certain amount of time go by without seeing each other, but it doesn’t always work. Sometimes you are both working and it just happens. But from here on out, I want to participate in making smart choices for the relationship,” Jessica Biel said in the interview with InStyle.
Coming from a small Colorado town, Jessica Biel revealed to InStyle that if and when Justin Timberlake and her decide to have children, she would want to do it outside of Hollywood. “I would like those future little people to have the experience I had, in some capacity,’ she said. “It was fun. I love Colorado; I’ve always thought that could be a possibility for me.”
Jessica Biel, 30-years old, and Justin Timberlake, 31-years old, got engaged during the 2011 holiday season, and are reportedly going to marry in September 2012.
Jessica Biel’s engagement ring is estimated to have cost $130,000.
In May, the couple had an engagement party to celebrate their upcoming wedding. A source told Us Weekly, “You can see that they have been dating for a long time and really know each other’s friends and family well. The party was a fun celebration and a preview of what’s to come with the wedding. It will be a big wedding. They have lots of people they want to invite.”
