The gossip around Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake’s split usually involved him being bored with the 4-year relationship, but he’s certainly being the gentleman about her in his new Vanity Fair interview. “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life,” he confesses. “In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.?…I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me—for instance, her.” She’s not the only former flame he’s got kind words for either. “I wish [Britney Spears] the best—that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years.” He even blames their break-up on getting older…rather than her alleged affair with Wade Robson! Class act, this guy.
Timberlake doesn’t just talk about his former ladies and, ironically, the urge to raise a family (“as little as six months ago I wouldn’t have even thought about that, but now it feels like a closer planet orbiting around”). The actor (that’s right, actor!) recalls wild times with male buddies as well “Ryan [Gosling] and I used to steal golf carts and go driving in the middle of the park to get milk shakes [while filming MMC], and we never got in trouble for it. We thought we were big s—.” Though his talk of nudity in Friends With Benefits should soften the blow, JT still sounds like he’s in no rush to get back into music. “I wouldn’t say I’m not going to put out another [record]. I would say that would be a bad bet, if you were betting. But I could see myself only doing one more big tour.” Yes, but when? When?
