Every relationship is different, but many happy couples agree that open conversation greatly benefits their marriage. That goes for celebrity spouses, too, including Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake. Biel, who appears in her husband's new music video for "Man of the Woods," just discussed the secret to their success with People.

 

According to the actress, it's all about "communication, communication, communication." "The ability to be really honest about how you're feeling and what your needs are. Just be able to communicate really honestly with your partner. That's worked for us so far," she explains. "I would never want to speak on anyone else's relationship, but that's what we do."

Biel and Timberlake tied the knot back in the fall of 2012, which means that they're no strangers to married life. With over five years of experience under their belts, it's safe to say that their advice comes well-informed. Aside from speaking each other's language, we'd venture to guess that their mutual support strengthens their bond. From the looks of it, the two are as blissful as ever, and frequently honor each other on social media. Recently, for example, Timberlake posted a photo of his wife hugging him from behind. He captioned the snapshot with an apt pun: "She's got my back."  

 

The two are also endlessly supportive of each other's careers. When Biel's The Sinner came out, Timberlake promoted the show on Instagram, writing "It's like nothing I've seen her in before, and she's incredible in the role." Now, as Timberlake promotes his new album, Biel's been singing his praises. "There's nothing better than watching your man do what they've been put on this earth to do. I’m so proud of you," she wrote in March.
