Jessica Timberlake! Jessica Biel changed her name after marriage to Justin Timberlake

Jessica Timberlake! She’ll still be Jessica Biel in the credits for movies (like her upcoming flick Hitchcock,) but the new bride has decided to legally take her husband’s last name.

This is sort of a big deal because although taking your husband’s name after marriage is still the most common practice in the U.S., a of Hollywood stars keep their original name (which is sometimes a new name for the stage anyway.) Even when they do change their names, like Jessica they usually retain their professional name.

“Yes, I’m changing my name. My professional name will still be the same, but for life, yes, I think it sounds great. I think I really won the jackpot of names.”

Biel is stoked over her much-publicized wedding, and feels like she’s found The One for her in Justin:

“It’s hard to find that one person in the world. Once you find that person, go for it. That kind of commitment is very special.”
