Jessica Biel: Marriage Means Having "Someone to Swim Naked With"

JT is a lucky guy! Following up her spectacular wedding with Justin Timberlake, the Hitchcock star gushes about her new hubby to Elle

Though they've only been married for less than two months, Jessica Biel seems to have a pretty good idea of what married life is all about. She and hubby Justin Timberlake have been notoriously private about their relationship, but it turns out they aren't so shy about other things now that they've tied the knot.

“[Marriage] means always having someone there to open the pickle jar ... to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing," Biel tells Elle.

Skinny dipping aside, Biel mentioned that one of the best parts about being a newlywed is what comes right after the festivities. "Honeymooning is the best thing about being a newlywed," she says. "I wish I could honeymoon forever." 

Well, by the sound of Timberbiel's luxe post-nuptial trip, who can blame her for feeling that way! According to Us Weekly, the pair went on safari in Tanzania, where they stayed at the $7,600-a-night Sasakwa Lodge at the Singita Grumeti Reserves. 

Now that the newlyweds are back stateside, they are still enjoying the honeymoon phase, only with more low-key adventures -- such as during Timberlake's triumphs in the kitchen.  

According to Biel, her hubby is quite the cook -- at least when it comes to desserts. "He bakes pies. He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma," she explains. "He does a three-layer pie...and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank God. Otherwise, it would be a big problem."

She likely didn't have many of those pies before she slipped into her gorgeous pink Giambattista Valli wedding dress back in October. Biel opens up to Elle about how that creation came to be.

“I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least," she explains. "[Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuschia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink. It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream."
