JESSICA & JUSTIN
“What a beautiful wedding, and the smiles on the faces of Justin and Jessica just warmed my heart”
How refreshing to see major stars have such a simple yet elegant wedding. From their unadorned gold rings to the party favors of local olive oil, Jessica and Justin created an occasion both memorable and down-to-earth. These two are a class act.
I loved reading about the Biel-Timberlake wedding, but couldn’t Justin have shaved for the occasion? Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t think a five-o’clock shadow goes well with a tuxedo.
Your cover photo of Justin and Jessica was part of a lovely tribute to their nuptials, but I was bewildered to see a small shot of Britney Spears in the top right-hand corner. Jessica may have been less than thrilled to see a picture of her new husband’s ex-girlfriend on her “wedding album” edition of your magazine.
Britney has come a long way since suffering a very humiliating public meltdown. Many of our young entertainment figures do not have the maturity to deal with the fast life they become a part of. I applaud Britney’s parents for being more concerned about their daughter than the money and notoriety their daughter’s celebrity status brings them.
Fort Wayne, Ind.
Country superstar Jason Aldean says he hasn’t read a book since high school. Excuse me? The gift of reading books is nothing to take for granted, and the last thing anyone needs right now is a well-known performer admitting he hasn’t opened one in nearly 20 years.
THE BURTON DIARIES
Thank you so much for sharing Richard Burton’s diaries. For this baby boomer, your article was a bittersweet trip down memory lane. Burton and Taylor filled our hearts with joy and passion at a time when the world was changing drastically.
I’m glad that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are giving their relationship another try. Falling in love at a young age leads to distractions. I married my high school sweetheart, and we had to work through many issues in our younger days, but that made us appreciate each other all the more. I’m glad Robert is listening to his heart and not his friends. I listened to my heart, and I have been married to the love of my life for three decades.
UPDATE | VICTIM NUMBER ONE
Aaron Fisher, labelled Victim Number One during the investigation that led to the child-abuse conviction of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, was heartened by the response to our Nov. 5 excerpt of his memoir Silent No More. Says Fisher, now 19: “I have gotten so much positive feedback; it has been the greatest thing in my life so far.” Readers were unanimous in praising Fisher’s courageous revelations. Wrote Canadian Mary Beth Trendos: “Aaron is a testament to the human spirit’s ability to overcome. Even though he was failed by the system, imagine how many young men he has spared through his brave decision to come forward and tell his story.”
In our Nov. 19 Holiday Movie Preview we gave an incorrect date for the premiere of the film The Guilt Trip. The Guilt Trip opens Dec. 19. In our movie reviews section of the same issue, we misspelled the name of actress Judi Dench. We regret the errors.
