Justin Timberlake’s Grandma Worries About His Marriage

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Rumors,

Sadie Bomar and her grandson, Justin TimberlakeJustin Timberlake's marriage is "hard going," says his grandma.

The singer-and-actor and wife Jessica Biel - whom he wed in October 2012 - spend a lot of time apart because of their respective careers and his grandmother Sadie Bomar is worried the distance is going to damage their relationship:

"They are married but they are so busy, both of them, it's hard going. I'm sure when it's right to have children they will, but not now. They do love each other dearly but they are apart so much it's going to be hard going for them."

Sadie says Jessica finds the distance particularly "tough," but she is hopeful the couple can overcome their problems - so long as they make more time for one another. "I think Jessica finds that really tough. She's on her own a good deal. If he's not coming back at night that puts a strain on things, of course it does. It's hard to keep it all going but you have to have faith to keep it all going. I have faith in them and I believe they love each other dearly but I know they need time together," Sadie added to The Sun.

Justin Timberlake Hits Back at Bad ‘Variety’ Review

Justin Timberlake in 'GQ'He may be one of the biggest musical artists around these days, but Justin Timberlake still can't quite find success in Hollywood.

In a recent interview with GQ, the "TKO" singer revealed that he's not so bothered by his lack of earnings at the box office as much as he is by harsh critics. Due to the flop of his latest film Runner, Runner - which also stars Ben AffleckVariety went so far as to title an article, “Why Justin Timberlake Should Stop Acting.”

"Where did all this vitriol come from? It's mean. And I'm not cut out for it," Timberlake states. He quickly  hit back at the popular trade magazine: “The movie didn't do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn't have said that. I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn't have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a dickhead.... It just shocked me because, like, you're trade magazines. None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it."

Jessica Biel Plans Lance Bass’ Wedding

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Music, Weddings,

Michael Turchin and Lance BassLance Bass has enlisted Jessica Biel to help plan his wedding.

The former 'N Sync star has received helpful tips and support from the wife of his former bandmate, Justin Timberlake, after proposing to his boyfriend Michael Turchin in September.

Lance, 34, reunited with the "Bye Bye Bye" hitmakers earlier this month for band member Chris Kirkpatrick's wedding, and he picked the stunning actress' brain on wedding ideas for his own nuptials: "I'm so glad I went to Chris' wedding because I forgot about some of my old management company people. And then we were sitting there talking to Jessie Biel, too, and she gave us a lot of great pointers. And she had some really great ideas. One really cool idea she had was that, on the invites -- because we love our onezies -- send out personalized onezies to all our guests so that at midnight after the reception it turns into a pajama party. How fun would that be? I think we might be doing that one. That was something we both loved."

The former Saturday Night Live performer was unimpressed when the "Baby" hitmaker hosted an episode of the comedy sketch show because he arrived on set with a huge entourage. "Justin Bieber showed up with like 20 guys. He had a guy holding a slice of pizza. A guy holding a Diet Coke. You're trying to fight through all these people to get dressed," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show.

While Bill hated working with Bieber, he praised Justin Timberlake for his down to earth attitude. Speaking about the "Mirrors" singer, he said, "He's great. Also, the guy doesn't show up with anybody. Timberlake, it was just him. He's a real class act, that guy."

Cinecast: New ‘Man of Steel’ Trailer, Kate Hudson Cast in Zach Braff Film

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake+ Even though people are still recovering from throwing their money at Star Trek Into Darkness this weekend and Iron Man 3 the two weekends before that, Warner Bros. wanted to remind them that they still ought to spend even more of it on Man of Steel, which comes out next month. Hence, the new trailer.

+ Justin Timberlake has proven to everyone each time he's showed up to the Cannes Film Festival that he's not only one of the most talented musicians, dancers, and actors around today, but that he dresses better than anyone else. No, really.

+ Now that Mandy Patinkin has signed on to star in Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded film, stars like Kate Hudson and Anna Kendrick are taking note and jumping on the bandwagon.

+ Since it feels like years since we last heard about the film adaptation of Ender's Game, the marketing team behind the project decided to throw fans a bone by releasing a new promo poster featuring Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield (who strangely resembles Elijah Wood in it at first glance).
