Jessica Biel's former co-star Beverley Mitchell has opened up about being present when Jessica met Justin Timberlake for the first time, and revealed that the pair immediately began to flirt! Chatting about the couple on Access Hollywood Live, she said: "I was there when like the love connection happened. I was like, 'Oh, this is happening.' But she used to make fun of me, because I had been friends with all the guys from *NSYNC years before. And she's like, 'You're going to another one of those concerts?' ...And then I'm like, 'You married one! Come on.'"

She continued: "They met - at the Golden Globes. It was so cute because it was that moment, 'I like you, I think you like me.' They were definitely flirting." Beverley starred alongside Jessica in American drama 7th Heaven, and opened up about her friendship with the star. "We do a lot of playdates and when our families can get together, that's great," she said. "But we're the friendship that doesn't - there's no work, and there's no expectations. We're just always there for each other. We see each other when we see each other. I love and adore her."

He didn't get that part from me."
