“She is the most special person, O.K.?,” he said of Biel, his most recent ex-girlfriend, in a talk with Vanity Fair. “I don’t want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me – for instance, her.”
He was much more vocal about former sweetheart Britney Spears, with whom he shared a relationship between 1999 and 2002. He feels their relationship did not have much of a future.
“We were two birds of the same feather – small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person,” he says.
“I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
Justin still had some nice words for his former girlfriend and co-star.
“I wish her the best – that goes without saying,” he said. Justin also added that they haven’t spoken in “9 or 10 years.”
Justin also talked about why celebrities so often date each other. The reason, he said, is refuge.
“Why do you think we wind up dating each other, and feeling more comfortable around each other?” he said. ”We understand what it’s like. ‘Oh, thank God – finally, somebody who knows how I feel.'”
