Jessica Biel is saying "Bye Bye Bye" to her last name and picking up her 'NSYNC-alum husband's famous moniker — at least in real life. The actress told People magazine that she'll take Justin Timberlake's name legally, but her marquee name will remain.

"Yes, I'm changing my name," she told the mag. "My professional name will still be the same, but for life, yes, I think it sounds great. I think I really won the jackpot of names."

She also thinks she hit the jackpot when she found her soul mate in the singer/actor. "It's hard to find that one person in the world," she said. "Once you find that person, go for it. That kind of commitment is very special."

The famous pair were married last week in Southern Italy surrounded by 100 friends and relatives, including Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg and Biel's "7th Heaven" co-star Beverley Mitchell. Timberlake's old bandmates didn't make the guest list, however, with Chris Kirkpatrick telling People that Justin "didn't want the wedding to be an 'NSYNC reunion."

Biel bucked wedding tradition by wearing a custom-made pink-and-white Giambattista Valli gown, while Timberlake donned a black Tom Ford tux. On top of her made-to-order dress, Biel also heard a custom-made track from Justin as she made her way down the aisle. Of the mysterious track, he simply shared with the magazine, "It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her."
