LOS ANGELES (AP) - Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot at a seaside resort in southern Italy.

The Borgo Egnazia resort declined to comment Friday about the superstar nuptials.

The couple released a statement to People magazine saying, “It’s great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends.”

Representatives for the couple confirmed the report Friday.

The 31-year-old Timberlake and 30-year-old Biel got engaged in December after dating for several years.

Timberlake, who has been acting more than singing lately, stars in the Clint Eastwood baseball film, “The Trouble with the Curve.” Biel stars in the remake of “Total Recall.” She will next be seen in “Hitchcock.”
