They may have been together since 2007, and the world may have known about their engagement since the first of the year, but Jessica Biel claims she has done “almost nothing” about planning her upcoming wedding to Justin Timberlake.
“I’m just enjoying being engaged,” the actress, soon to be seen in Total Recall, tells the Chicago Sun-Times – whose interviewer Cindy Perarlman makes special note of Biel’s “megawatt” engagement ring.
(She also notes that no wedding date appears to be set, despite rumors of a ceremony taking place later this summer.)
“I do feel like there is a lot of time and nothing needs to be rushed,” says Biel.
Not that she’s suggesting marriage might sour the moment.
“But being engaged is just absolutely amazing,” she says. “You’re in this romantic, ahhhhh, breathless moment that I’m just trying to extend as long as possible.”
