Justin Timberlake Responds to Wife Jessica Biel's Legal 'I Voted' Selfie After His Debacle at the Polls

Updated

Jessica Biel is following in her husband’s footsteps by casting her ballot — but didn’t break any laws while doing it!

The 34-year-old actress took to Instagram on Monday to share a selfie collage of herself posing with her “I Voted” sticker, a notable difference from the selfie her husband, Justin Timberlake, took with an actual voting machine.

“When you’re so turnt up about voting that you do a photo shoot with your sticker and think it’s cool but then second guess it,” she wrote, adding “But you’ve already posted, but at least you waited to get home before snapping so you won’t almost go to jail, shout out to @justintimberlake.”

The Illusionist star poked fun at her husband after he flew to his home state of Tennessee to vote, posting a selfie of himself with the voting machine in the background, something that is a class C misdemeanor in the state.

The “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” singer shared his wife’s post, writing “Well played, Wifey. Well played… @jessicabiel #getoutandvote #rockthevote #votelikeyoumeanit #everyvotehastagever Ps. No selfies in the booth.”

Last Wednesday night, the singer and actor appeared on The Tonight Show with his pal Jimmy Fallon, where he talked about his headline-making voting booth selfie.

“I recently voted,” Timberlake told Fallon. “It was super quiet, under the radar. No one even knew!”

“I didn’t hear that,” Fallon joked. “It’s so amazing how you sneak in and sneak out!”

When Fallon asked him if he had any advice for anyone about to vote, Timberlake looked squarely in the camera and told viewers, “Get out and vote — just don’t take a picture of yourself.”

Tennessee isn’t the only state where taking photographs of the voting process is illegal. Eighteen states do not allow voters to take a picture of their ballots, but six states allow images of mail-in forms, according to the Associated Press.
