From Jessica Biel to Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake has an A-list lineup of exes. And according to his interview in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, he has maintained different relationships with all three postbreakup. Of fellow Mouseketeer Britney, JT says he hasn't spoken with her in almost a decade, although he wishes her the best. As for Cameron, they seem to maintain a friendly relationship, considering they're starring in the new movie Bad Teacher together. And when it comes to his freshest ex, Justin's words on Jessica conveyed some strong residual feelings. He said, "She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, OK? . . . I don't want to say much more, because I have to protect things that are dear to me — for instance, her."
So many times when a long-term relationship ends, it's considered a failure. But we learn so much about ourselves and have defining experiences with our former partners that perhaps more of us should look back at past relationships with a positive attitude. It's clear Justin does. Do you have an ex you consider to be one of the most significant people in your life?
