Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are officially married, Us Weekly confirms. The longtime couple tied the knot on Friday in southern Italy, in an intimate ceremony attended by family and friends including producer Timbaland, ex-SNL funnyman Andy Samberg and N'Sync pal Chris Kirkpatrick.

Timberlake and Biel first began dating in January 2007 and have been the subject of wedding rumors for years; back in March 2011, the couple parted ways, but mutual split didn't last long. According to Us Weekly, Timberlake proposed to Biel late last December while on vacation in Jackson, Wyoming. Said an insider at the time, "Justin knows how much she loves snowboarding and the mountains, so it was the perfect place."

Timberlake, who previously dated Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz, has put music aside in recent years to focus on a bourgeoning acting career, with roles in The Social Network, Bad Teacher and, most recently, Clint Eastwood's Trouble With The Curve. Timberlake is also an investor in the new MySpace, which recently unveiled a revamped look.

Biel most recently appeared in the remake of Total Recall and will portray the actress Vera Miles in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock biopic, Hitchcock.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
