Jessica Biel most significant person in J.T.'s life

Their relationship may have come to an end, but that doesn't mean Justin Timberlake doesn't hold a little love for his former girlfriend Jessica Biel. The actors said in a statement back in March that they remain friends despite their break-up and "continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other," sentiments Timberlake echoed in a new interview with Vanity Fair.

“She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life," he says of Biel. "In my 30 years, she is the most special person, O.K.?”

Timberlake stops himself from saying more, “because I have to protect things that are dear to me—for instance, her.”

The singer/actor/designer had similarly kind words for another one of his famous ex’s, Britney Spears.

“I wish her the best—that goes without saying,” he says. “We haven’t spoken in 9 or 10 years.”

“We were two birds of the same feather—small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person,” he adds. “I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”

Not realizing that people change and evolve can hurt more than a teenybopper relationship, Timberlake goes on. Although he’d like to get married and have a family, he feels it’s easier said than done.

“I think the mistake is that people commit to who that person is right then and not the person they’re going to become,” Timberlake tells VF. “That’s the art of staying together, is changing together…When you say it like that, it seems damn near impossible, right?”

    Justin and Britney were an adorable couple, it is too bad that they didn't change together. Justin also got an even bigger ego when he left N'Sync in my opinion, that could be part of the change.

      Um, Brittany went psycho and he didn't....what's adorable about that? It's nice that he speaks so highly of her. I don't think that's ego, I think that's class, and I'm not a fan, but objectively, I mean come on...
