Jessica Biel becomes JT: 'I really won the jackpot of names'

There are now two JTs in showbiz.

“Yes, I'm changing my name,” Jessica Biel told People.

The 30-year-old “Total Recall” star, who wed Justin Timberlake, 31, on October 19 in a custom pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown, told the magazine she’ll still be known as JB professionally.

“[B]ut for life, yes, I think it sounds great,” she added. “I think I really won the jackpot of names.”

The actress will next appear as Vera Miles in “Hitchcock,” which is expected to open in limited theaters on November 23.

    • TriumphTheInsultComicDog

      I'll take a stab at this one. It's in the word structure. Ir-regardless being the word. "Ir" is a negative prefix even when hyphenated. Regard is the root word. "less" is a negative suffix. When regard and less are combined the prefix "Ir" becomes pointless and adding it creates a double negative.

    I may not be able to spell worth a lick, but who are you trying to amuse? I guess i am not able to find why it is so funny. Explain, please. Is there any reason to be crude? This is supposed to be about two people geting married, I do think it is odd that this is considerd newsworthy... Not about poop. How does the two subjects relate? I do not see your point of view. It would be nice to find out how a body function is so funny..

      Mr Lee: good that you can admit your problems with grammar. Thats a step toward correcting them. Who are we trying to amuse? Anyone with a sense of humor and appreciation for off-the-wall antics. Must we be crude? Yep. That would be the off-the-wall part of it. "This is supposed to be about two people getting married". Oh so now your telling us what we can talk about??? What happened to "Do you know what freedom is? They can do what they want"??? Looks your idea of freedom is skewed. Just because what's being said doesn't suit your taste it doesn't give you the right to dictate what can be talked about. How DO the two relate? A number of ways. Some news stories like ones about celebrity weddings are pretty s**tty. Sometimes the celebrities themselves can be. There-in the poop can become a fitting part of the commentary. As for being able to see the humor in it, don't bother. Until you get some intelligence, a sense of humor, and less of a sense of self-righteousness you won't be able to. Now i have a special fat and nutty turd to leave on your face. You have become my favorite person......FOR ME TO POOP ON!!!

    • Babba Booey

      yes, it is indeed a word but is a double negative, rendering it somewhat useless. Also, while it is found in the dictionary it is not used when speaking proper English. Of course, you wouldn't recognize this because you posted that you wouldn't "waist" your time... Perhaps the word "waste" would be more suitable. I shall now contact Triumph the Insult Comic Dog so that we may administer a well deserved double dose of pooh upon your body.

      Why is this so confusing for people? "Irrespective" and "regardless" mean the same thing; i.e., "nonetheless" or "without regard to."

      The "ir" is a prefix for "respective," not "regardless," which already has the suffix "less" and needs no "ir," lest it become a double negative. Sheesh! It's called ninth-grade writing, people!

They live in America. Do you know what "Freedom" is? They can do what they want. Irregardless of what you guys want to happen, it is up to them. And since when did poop jokes become funny?

Justin Timberlake looks exactly like a nerdy guy I went to high school with. Dude has a personal trainer and he is a good dancer. His voice is mediocre and his songs are completely generic and bad even for dance music. he keeps tryong to become a movie star and he is a crappy actor. They are like a C celebrity couple.
