Justin Timberlake’s book “Hindsight” comes out today and in an excerpt shared on “Entertainment Weekly” he opens up about how his wife Jessica Biel changed his life.
Justin shares that he wrote the song “Mirrors” about Jessica even before they were engaged, and dedicated the video to his grandparents, noting, “I learned about long-lasting love from them. I know that’s what I have with my wife.”
Justin recounts first meeting Jessica at a surprise party, and while they talked and danced that night, they didn’t exchange numbers although he did realize he was “kind of interested in that girl.” They eventually met up again when she came to one of his shows, and he got her number, and they started talking on the phone for like two weeks before they went on a date, because he was on tour.
“We’ve had a lot of unforgettable times. She’s become a huge influence on my life, and I have such admiration for her, especially seeing her as a mother now. But I had admiration for her before," he says. "She’s a very good writer. She’s a poet. She’s a tremendous actor. She’s funny. Very funny. And she’s one of the most patient people I’ve ever met.
He adds, "She changed me. She changed my life. All of that is in “Mirrors.” Not the details. But the way it felt to have my life be touched by her.”
