AceShowbiz - Jessica Biel is surely one lucky woman to have Justin Timberlake as his husband when she's currently facing backlash from her vaccine activism. The "Mirror" singer gave both the actress and their son Silas the sweetest shout-out when he took the stage at the Songwriters Hall of Fame 50th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner in New York on Thursday night, June 13.
Thanking Jessica and the 4-year-old son for always giving him inspiration to write great songs, Justin said during his speech, "To my wife, who is here tonight and who has given me the greatest gift of our love. Our son is four now, and he's dope too! I've written so many songs because of that I'm so proud of and I just...I'm extremely humbled. I hope that I can represent this award for all of you."
Jessica was among the audience when the "In Time" actor delivered his speech, though it's not known how she reacted to his shout-out.
This arrives after "The Sinner" actress was slammed online for joining Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at the California State Capitol to lobby against the proposed SB 276 bill, which would limit medical exemptions from vaccinations without approval from a state public health officer. However, Jessica has since clarified her views in a post on Instagram.
"I am not against vaccinations I support children getting vaccinations and I also support families having the right to make educated medical decisions for their children alongside physicians," she wrote, insisting that her main "concern" with the bill is "solely regarding medical exemptions."
She added, "That's why I spoke to legislators and argued against this bill. Not because I don't believe in vaccinations, but because I believe in giving doctors and families they treat the ability to decide what's best for their patients and the ability to provide that treatment."
