Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel Wed

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have got married in southern Italy.

Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson, a spokeswoman for Biel, confirmed the report.

People quoted the couple as saying: "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends."

The couple threw a pre-wedding party on Wednesday in Puglia at the Cala Masciola beach on the Adriatic Sea, according to celebrity magazine Us Weekly.

Guests included comedian Andy Samberg, who co-starred with Timberlake in Emmy-winning Saturday Night Live and the film Friends With Benefits.

Sexy Back singer and actor Timberlake, 31, and Total Recall (2012) actress Biel, 30, have been dating on and off since 2007.

They announced their engagement at the beginning of the year and carefully shielded the details of their nuptials from the public.

Tennessee-born Timberlake has previously had high-profile relationships with singer Britney Spears and actress Cameron Diaz.

He rose to fame in the boy band N'Sync, and forged a successful solo music career before moving into films.

Biel, who was born in Minnesota, started her career on US television in the long-running family drama 7th Heaven.

She broke into movies with a starring role in the 2003 remake of horror flick Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The (2003) and has since been seen in A-Team, The (2010) and New Year's Eve (2011).
