Even after seven years of marriage, Jessica Biel is still the ultimate Justin Timberlake fan. And she shared the sweetest message in honor of his final "Man of the Woods" tour show to prove it.
The actress posted a video of herself to Instagram on Saturday night from backstage at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, shortly before the concert. “Hey Tennessee kid, I’m being quiet because you’re in the next room," she began, proudly wearing a "Man of the Woods" tour hat. "It’s your last show, it’s the last Man of the Woods show tonight. I would say that I’m so proud of you but I feel like that’s the understatement of the century and that somehow that I take ownership to what you’ve done this past year-and-a-half."
She continued, “I’m just in absolute awe of you every night to see you up there in your glory doing what you’ve been put on this Earth to do. You inspire me, you inspire Silas, you inspire everyone around you. All of your fans, all of your friends and family to work as hard and with so much passion as you do. You are truly a sight to behold."
After nearly 18 months on the road, Biel said that she is "so happy that you’re going to get some time off. I’m so happy for you and for us," but noted that she's also "so sad" that she won't get to see him on stage for a while. “
She finished the message near tears, saying, "You make my heart burst with joy and love when I see you doing your thing baby. I’m your No. 1 fan, I love you.”
Timberlake commented on the heartfelt video, writing, “I mean... I’m not crying. You’re CRYING! I can’t with this message. I love you so much.”
After the show, the The Sinner star shared a series of celebratory selfies.
Biel and the couple's four-year-old son, Silas, regularly travel with Timberlake when he's on tour. "It is fun to be on the road," the actress said in an interview last year. "I think it's amazing for our son because he's hearing new languages. We're talking about different countries, the names of different countries, what he likes, what he's seen. He would never have these experiences if we weren't able to get out there and go for it."
And for what it's worth, Biel isn't the only one who's her partner's biggest fan. The feeling, it seems, is mutual. "With Justin, he's so happy for me," the actress told Elle last year of the support she received from her husband in her career. "I always say he's my biggest fan." So what's the key to keeping their marriage (and mutual adoration) strong after all of these years together? “Definitely our work," she said in another interview from 2018. "We're lucky enough to be able to go and stay in different places, live in different places while we work, and that's definitely part of it.
But, honestly, I just really feel like you have to work hard. That doesn't change if you work at home or in an office or you're on a tour, it doesn't change, the work doesn't change. The being devoted to the relationship is our biggest priority."
