Jessica Biel is officially becoming Jessica Timberlake. The 30-year-old actress has decided to take new husband Justin Timberlake’s last name, despite the fact that more and more women — in and outside of Hollywood — are keeping their maiden names both personally and professionally. You’ll still see the name “Jessica Biel” headlining movies, but her driver’s license will say “Jessica Timberlake.” Jennifer Aniston did the same when she married Brad Pitt years ago.
We told you earlier this week all about Jessica’s out-of-the-ordinary but still stunningly beautiful pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture wedding gown. The actress and her new hubbie posed for a photo for the cover of the most recent issue of People magazine, in which Jessica opened up about her decision to change her name. “My professional name will still be the same, but for life, yes, I think it sounds great,” she told the magazine about taking the last name Timberlake. “I think I really won the jackpot of names.”
We’re thrilled for the newlywed couple and hope they stay happy for years to come.
