Asked how they enjoyed the holiday, Biel told Seacrest, “Super normal, super fun. We were in New Orleans, I was filming there, we put on our costumes and we just walked down the street it was amazing.”
Timberlake added that the “best part” of the experience was watching his wife’s amazing marketing prowess at work. “My wife is the greatest of all time,” he began. “We were walking up to a house like the week before the movie came out, but some of the promotion was already out so some of the kids were recognizing us as the characters,” he explained.

“And my wife was like, ‘That’s right, it’s from Dreamworks Animation’s Trolls that comes out November.’ I was like, ‘I owe you one for that.’ “
Asked if they’d wear the costumes again, Timberlake joked, “We better, we paid a lot of money to have those made.”
As for the song that earned him his nomination, Timberlake said, “I think love and joy is a limited commodity these days and I’m just happy to be a part of sharing that with people.”
