Jessica Biel admits she doesn't know any NSYNC lyrics while promoting Facebook Watch series Limetown
Jessica Biel doesn't know the words to any NSYNC songs and admitted she wasn't a fan growing up Tuesday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The 37-year-old actress just celebrated her seventh wedding anniversary Saturday to Justin Timberlake, 38, the boy band's most famous member.
Jessica said she still can't think of any lyrics to his group's hits, which she recently confessed when playing Truth Or Dare with friends.

'My dare was I have to sing an NSYNC song—all the lyrics, all the melodies—and I literally, I couldn't,' she confessed.
'I only know three words, ''Bye, Bye, Bye'',' Jessica explained, referring to the band's 2000 hit. 'But I wasn't allowed to sing that, I had to sing something else.'
'Justin coached me through the chorus, the verse, I'm looking at the words… it was really humiliating,' she told Jimmy, 45.
Jessica rose to fame on the hit series 7th Heaven, which ran on The WB network from 1996 to 2007, the same years NSYNC hit the airwaves.

Jessica said the boy band wasn't in her wheelhouse, as she preferred 'old-school stuff.'
'I was listening to theater productions, I was listening to Rent. I knew every word of Rent. I was listening to Motown,' Jessica detailed.
'I lived under a rock. I wasn't into pop-culture music.'

Jimmy then showed her an E! News interview she did at age 17, years before she and Justin met, in which she was asked if she liked NSYNC.
'I know of them, of course, and I've heard of them, I've heard the music,' she told the interviewer. 'I don't think I own any of their CDs. I'm not a huge fan. But, I mean, cool, I guess.'
'The attitude!' Jessica cringed as she watched it.

'Now you probably know some NSYNC songs, right?' Jimmy asked.
'Not really,' Jessica admitted, as the audience laughed.
Jimmy promised to find an NSYNC song on which they could duet and surprise Justin, laughing as he added, 'because I'm a giant fan.'

Go hell for leather like Jessica in Louis Vuitton
Jessica Biel turned to one of her go-to designers, Louis Vuitton, to deck her out for a photo call for Facebook Watch’s Limetown series.
