    Is this actually news? I thought most celebrities change their name legally but keep their professional name.

    Of course she’s changing her name. That’s what’s supposed to happen when you get married. Either the wife(or the husband) changes their last name so that they can both have the same last name. This isn’t news.

    Marriages don’t seem real anymore. Why not change your professional name? Your still going to be the same person except with a different last name.

    @Alaia: Agreed. Most celebrities change their name, we just don’t hear about it. The ones that are newsworthy is when they also change their professional names

    So what does this mean? Jessica will be Jessica Biel on movie credits but she will sign her checks Jessica Timberlake?

    You guys are jealous of her beauty and her fame. You wish you could find someone like Justin and Jessica. You people are truly digusting. This marriage will eb one of the marriages in hollywood that will last. Just wait and see. You people are stupid for thinking that this isn’t news. She’s a beautfil woman who wants to keep her career and have her handsome hubby’s name.

    How dare you?!?! It’s true! You people are like animals. Attacking this beautiful couple for one reason. Just because your jealous doesn’t make it right to attack them.

    Ok jessica, we got ur point….u should be focusing on that non-existant career of urs

    Alaia Says:

    @Yoki: It’s easier to not change your professional name. An actor’s name is a part of their persona, their legacy. Especially with her being an actor, it’s like she’s essentially playing a part.

    samantha Says:

    @Noor: Wow, now your attacking me because I want to protect this couple. I’m doing nothing wrong. They are going to be my friends when I make it. I got to touch Justin twice and Jessica five times. Your jealous that your never going to be on the same level as me and my friends. All of you are jealous of their beauty. The actually look good and you people are attacking them for that. That’s a damn shame. You people are truly animals.

    Yoki Says:

    But still, it’s weird that you want to be two different people when your not.

    xiopio Says:

    I am actually more impressed with Vanessa Lachey who changed her name period. Most celebs when married still use their name in the professional relm of things and use their married name in their personal life, so no big news here!

    Moreen Says:


    omg you are probably joking right?just because you touched them that makes you better than anybody else??

    what is wrong with this world???

    creed Says:

    @Leah: Because people already know her as Jessica Biel for like 15 years. When you file a new name at SAG your entire record is cleared. No point.

    DB Says:

    I agree she should change her professional name to Jessica Timberlake.

    Her career as Jessica Biel hasn’t really turned out all that well anyway. Maybe a fresh start will help.

    samantha Says:

    @Moreen: Why are you people attacking me and my friends? America is going downhill. Why would you think I’m joking? I’m not a crazy person. Most of the people on this page are attacking the Timberlakes and the ones who are defending them are getting attacked. You people are bullies.

    its so ironic that first world women still do that

    say wha? Says:

    @OldAndFat: People like you disgust me. A woman has every right to keep her old name. If its so important, a guy should take a woman’s last name. People like you give the term “women’s rights” a bad name.

    SunnyAutumn Says:

    After chasing him down to be her BF (right after he and Cameron broke up), it doesn’t surprise me one bit that she is changing her name to Timberlake…….like duhhhhhh lol. I think its also classy that they had one of his friends to videotape some poor homeless guy to make fun of during their wedding. the homeless guy didn’t have a clue until t mz told him.

    geevee Says:

    I think I read somewhere that it’s common practice now for women, especially for celebrities, to keep their surnames. The other alternative would be to opt for a hyphenated name, like Jolie-Pitt perhaps. Nevertheless, it is common to see married women keeping their maiden names. However, I do prefer it when they change their surnames, so good job Mrs. Timberlake! :)

    Isha Says:

    @Moreen: I agree. I am sure samantha is joking to get a response just for kicks, or maybe she’s a tween who should be on JJ Jr. And then there’s the other probability…

    lame really no one cares, and the timberlake name is boring, do you want timber in ur lake ?

    Green Says:

    These two are perilously over the cliff of over exposure. Hang on, they’re already there! Yawn! Two very boring celebrities…JT sounds like a MJackson wannabe and he is so BPA feminine. Biel hasn’t done a decent thing for years. THey should lay off the People covers and do some real work.

    anna Says:

    @Yoki: They’re totally right not to chang theirprofessional names, that’s how people know them, that’s why most actors don’t! It’ll just make viewers confused and they’ll still call them by their original names..and if they get divorced they’d have to change would all just be very confusing and messy

    anna Says:

    I personally think it’s way better how we do it in Brazil, we just add our husband’s last name after ours! We have multiple surnames, our mother’s, our father’s and our husband’..I think it’s way more democratic this way

    Jamie Says:

    @samantha, nobody is bullying you so get over yourself. You’re acting like these people are your friends and you know them personally, because you touched them a few times. So really, you brought this upon yourself. If you can’t handle the backlash, then this probably isn’t the place for you if you’re so oversensitive about people attacking celebrities YOU DON’T KNOW. Oh yeah and you’re also acting like you’re better than everyone else because you touched them, when nobody here even takes Jessica and Justin seriously either as a couple or individually so you’re not better than anyone. Seriously, calm down and stop whining.

    after laughing at the homeless, addicted and transexuals of LA at their wedding,……i have a few choice names I could call these 2 dou.chebags. Please JJ, don’t tolerate these gross people anymore and don’t post anything on JJ about them. They should be held accountable. They are cruel sick snobs.!!!!

    @anti biel: read that, too — thought it was disgusting but typical of celebrities and their fake image

    anti biel Says:

    @gi: I won’t support these guys anymore in movies or film. Someone needs to teach them a lesson or two about respect and dignity. I just hope more people feel this way and boycott their projects. I am surprised JJ doesn’t do the same. Hopefully this insult will go viral to fans and other gossip blogs out there and they will be forced to make a statement and donate their Peoples’ magazine fee to a homeless shelter.

    brittmadisonxo Says:

    She wont change her professional name because people could see her in future work and want to find more of her stuff but wouldnt be able to under jessica timberlake. Vanessa Lachey has no previous work anyone cares about so changing her name was a no brainer.

    i just seen the cover on an australian magazine (different to the one that was released in the US) and it’s freakin ridiculous. looks like a guy & his beard.. i mean, him jumping in the air was bad enough but the other cover is even worse.. reminds me of ‘In & Out’ (if you haven’t seen the movie you should.. it’s hilarious.)

    They’re really cute couple and i hope their marriage last forever… It’s really nice of Jessie to do this. I love it. But it’s good to keep her name for professional stuff cause i think her own family name is also good. I wish Justin takes care of her and make her happy. They both deserve happiness specially jessie! <3

    both should change their last names to “douchebags”. making fun of the homeless is a big no-no.

    Inside Says:

    Looks like the ‘newly weds’ are using JJ to deflect deflect deflect from the homeless people controversy. This is a non story.
    Why would they timberlake/biel decides to reveal to the public what they are doing privately (re name )? No one in the public need never know, nor are they supposed to know – as the only way in which they know of you, is the professional name – which, HELLO??! Is NOT changing.
    ….so why say anything?
    To deflect from the homeless people they made fun of.
    Also why is no one asking what people mag paid them?
    Brad and Angelina gave their millions all to charity from their baby pics, because papz were chasing them down in the street like animals – why do others, who no one cares about really – getting away with just collecting the dough on their wedding photos for themselves, and no one even reveals how much, or what they’re doing with it?

    Go you become heterosexual by changing your name?

    see Says:

    the most common thing in the world Ms Timberlake, to share the name of your husband Mr Timberlake.
    but i would think most unusual thing in the famous people world where ego’s commonly are so big names never change.
    this seems like a serious forever union, that also being unusual in the famous people world.
    so they will now be known as ”the Timberlakes”
