Jessica Biel shops local during Justin Timberlake’s tour stop

Apparently Justin Timberlake wasn’t the only big star in Minnesota over the weekend.

The Pioneer Press says Timberlake’s wife – film actress and Minnesota native Jessica Biel – did some Valentine’s Day card shopping in the Twin Cities Sunday.

Joel and Lauren Gryniewski, the husband and wife team that owns Greater Goods in Minneapolis, say the Ely-born actress shopped in their card and gift store Sunday. Timberlake was in St. Paul to play the Xcel Energy Center Sunday night.

Joel Gryniewski told the Pioneer Press that he recognized the actress, but delivered the wrong name when he addressed her.

“I asked her, ‘Are you Jessica Alba?’ She said, ‘No, I’m Jessica Biel, but I get that a lot,’” Gryniewski told the paper.

The shop owner said Biel was “really nice” about the mistake, but he still “felt like an idiot.”

Gryniewski told the paper that Biel – who was accompanied by “a body guard or a very large friend” – picked up two Valentine’s Day cards from the couple’s Old Tom Foolery card line.

Biel, 31, and Timberlake, 33, married in October 2012.

Biel has starred in such films as “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry,” “Valentine’s Day,” “The A-Team,” “Total Recall” and “Playing for Keeps.”

The blog ComicBookMovie.com says Biel is also part of a new series of “Disney Dream Portraits” by Annie Leibovitz, who photographed stars playing famous Disney movie characters. Biel is featured in the gallery as Pochahontas.
