Jessica Biel Kind of a Big Deal to Timberlake

At one time or another each person has had someone come into their life that makes a lasting impact. To music icon Justin Timberlake that person is Jessica Biel.

Even though the couple, who began dating in 2007, formally announced their split earlier this March, Biel obviously still holds a place near and dear in JT’s heart.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair Magazine, Justin was asked to talk about Jessica. He had the following to say:

“I would rather not talk about her, because it’s hurtful for me. I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me — for instance, her. She is the single handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, OK? So I protect it and until somebody shows me what would be more fulfilling at this point, that’s what I have to do.”

Despite the tough break up the two have apparently found a way to stay amicable. At a recent party thrown by a mutual friend, they were spotted chatting it up, and even shared a kiss (on the cheek) upon their departure from the celebration.

With the multitude of ugly Hollywood break ups that occur it’s great to see a pair that still treat each other with kindness.
