Let me make one thing clear: it’s a sad thing that charitable couple Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have broken up. The two had been together for four years, and it must be tough for both of them, even though the split was reportedly mutual.
But be honest, whether you’re a man or a woman you’re a little bit happy about it, right? Two of Hollywood’s hottest celebs are now single, and not only are they both talented and attractive, but they’re both heavily involved in charity work and humanitarian efforts. Think about it: now’s your chance to step in! They’re on the rebound! Who cares if we common folk aren’t as rich or famous or nearly as attractive as they are, it could still happen!
The split came following Biel’s birthday week, which included an “awkard” surprise party in which Timberlake seemed aloof. It’s a shame, as Biel’s birthday week was otherwise going so well: the star had set up a fundraising site through Charity: Water with a goal of $5,000, which she reached. Biel has long been involved in providing clean drinking water to those in need, and even climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro last year for the “Summit on the Summit.” Biel is also animal-friendly, having starred in the short film “Hole in the Paper Sky” which tells the story of a man whose life is changed by a dog rescued from animal testing.
Timberlake, meanwhile, was one of the celebs who went through a “digital death” last year and signed off Twitter and Facebook until $1 million was raised for Alicia Keys’ “Keep a Child Alive” charity. Timberlake also made a number of eco-friendly improvements to the Mirimichi golf course, making it green in more than one way.
The break-up seems to have been a long time coming, as rumors of the couple splitting started as far back as April of last year. Fortunately, the split was amicable and the couple plans to remain friends.
