(NEW YORK) — Jimmy Fallon was one of the guests at Justin Timberlake and Jessica’ Biel’s wedding last October, and the singer reveals in a new Time magazine article that the late night host helped make his groom speech a memorable moment for everyone.
Fallon has just been designated by Time as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.” Timberlake tells the magazine Fallon is a “brilliant comedian” and “talented musician,” and a pal who lent him a hand during an awkward wedding moment.
Timberlake writes, “Picture this: I’m in the heart of an impromptu speech at my wedding reception in front of 150 guests, pouring it out to my lovely new bride. You could hear a pin drop. I paused for just a moment in between thoughts. And then there was Jimmy, shouting a joke from his seat, sparking an improv between the two of us that went on for a good five or 10 minutes and had all our guests roaring with laughter.”
Timberlake wasn’t mad that he had to share the moment with Fallon, adding, “It turned into a moment that everyone there will remember forever. Anyone else would have bombed on that stage.”
Timberlake and Biel tied the knot at an Italian seaside resort.
