We all know Justin Timberlake considers his fiancee Jessica Biel "the most important person in his life," but it's also good that he thinks his bride-to-be is smokin' hot (just like every other person in the world).

The actor and singer, 31, chatted with the Hollywood Foreign Press (via Us Weekly) about marriage and his future wife during a press conference for his new movie, "Trouble With The Curve." Timberlake praised Biel, 30, and revealed he pursued her "the old fashioned way."

"She's a really, really, really special person," he told reporters. "Plus, she's really, really, hot!"

According to Timberlake, Biel was releuctant to date him in 2007, following his breakup with longtime love, Cameron Diaz, in 2006. The former N*SYNCer confessed that their meeting was very "un-Hollywoodesque" and that "there was nothing starry about it."

"We met and got talking. Afterwards I asked my friend if I could call her and ask her out. My friend called Jessica and Jessica said yes, and so I called her," he revealed, adding, "I did it the old fashioned way -- by telephone. That's something I learned from both my stepdad and my grandfather -- that there is a thing called chivalry and it doesn't have to die with the birth of the internet. The way I see it, if you're asking a girl out on a date, it's only right to do it in a way that she can hear your voice. I had to be pretty persistent in order to get her to say yes. But I have a fair amount of tenacity and if I want something I stick to it. And in the end she agreed."

And she obviously agreed to marry him when she accepted Timberlake's proposal -- he reportedly got down on one knee in Jackson, Wyoming, in December 2011.

"I answer to a higher power now," he joked. "We have a couple of rules in our relationship. The first rule is that I make her feel like she's getting everything. The second rule is that I actually do let her have her way in everything. And, so far, it's working."

And thanks to his mom and stepdad's relationship, Timberlake feels he's ready to conquer marriage.

"I think it's important to remember that you go into something like marriage knowing that you don't know very much about it at all," Timberlake said. "But I do look at the marriage of my mother and stepdad, and what makes it work for them is that it's a team effort."
