Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel to wed this week

  • Actors Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are to tie the knot this week in Italy, according to celebrity magazine Us Weekly.

    The couple hosted a pre-wedding party on Wednesday in Puglia, Italy, the magazine said.

    Guests included comedian Andy Samberg, who co-starred with Timberlake in an Emmy-winning Saturday Night Live digital short and the romantic comedy Friends With Benefits.

    This is the first wedding for singer-actor Timberlake, 31, and Total Recall star Biel, 30, who have been dating since 2007.

    They announced their engagement at the start of this year.

    Timberlake previously dated pop singer Britney Spears and actress Cameron Diaz.

    He rose to fame as a member in boy band N'Sync and embarked on a successful solo music career before moving into films. He played Napster founder Sean Parker in the Oscar-nominated Facebook film The Social Network.

    Biel started her career on television in the family drama 7th Heaven and later went on to star in movies including remakes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The A-Team.
