Justin Timberlake Took Control Over Engagement Ring Choice
All too often, the trend nowadays is for women to be very actively involved in picking their own engagement ring. While that may represent a more modern approach, there is something to be said for a man who is confident enough to make the right choice on his own (and a woman who is not controlling and allows her husband-to-be to have this defining moment).
Jessica Biel recently revealed that this is how her engagement unfolded when fiancé, Justin Timberlake, proposed. "I had no say whatsoever [in the ring]. I don't micromanage," she says. "He is fearless in his choices and has a real eye for design. And I'll be honest: He has better taste than I do."
Apparently, that’s not the only area where he’s confident in his own taste. Biel adds: "When I walk out of the closet after getting dressed in the morning, I'll go like this [turns palms upward as if to say, 'Well?'] And he goes like this [shakes his head no]. Then he picks again. It's hilarious."
As she points out, one important component to a happy relationship is "letting go of the little stuff. You can't let it get to you. It is important to me to have a partner who is loving and fun – someone who inspires me," she says. "And he must be a good person."
Her parents are an excellent example, she explains. "The best thing I learned from [my parents] is that you have to put your relationship first. You need to make time for your partner," she says. “It's really easy to let that go by the wayside. It's easy to say, 'Hey, I'll see you later. I love you.' And you can't do that."
Does the actress who was raised in Colorado see herself raising a family in Los Angeles with her singer/actor beau? She says: "I would like those future little people to have the experience I had, in some capacity. It was fun. I love Colorado; I've always thought that could be a possibility for me."
