Multi-talented entertainer Justin Timberlake, 31, and actress Jessica Biel, 30, an Ely, Minn., native were married in Italy Friday, People magazine reported. The two have been dating for five year and were engaged in December, the magazine says.

"It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends," the couple tells People.

People also has a bio on Biel, who got her start in Hollywood at 14 with an appearance on TV's "7th Heaven."

Esquire magazine named her the sexiest woman alive in 2005, and she's been a number of similar lists since. Esquire says she grew up in Boulder, Colo., and that her dad is a former business consultant, and her mom was a spiritual healer.

Biel was on Jimmy Kimmel's talk show a few months ago, and he congratulated her on her engagement to "that guy." He asks her, "What happened to your hand, did it get hit by a meteor or is that a ring?"
