Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears once formed the hottest couple of the celebrity gossip world. But that was then, and this is now, 9-10 years later.
They haven't spoken in about that long.
Timberlake told Vanity Fair that their status as arguably the most famous couple of a generation was fueled by just that, but then they both grew up.
"We were two birds of the same feather - small-town kids, doing the same thing," Timberlake told the publication "But then you become adults."
"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. There was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers."
Always a class act, he adds, "I wish her the best - that goes without saying."
Now 30, Timberlake is infinitely more mature and more strongly connected with another woman in his life, even if they two recently broke up.
