It’s hard not to long for the days when Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears were music’s most adorable couple, especially when celebs post amazing #TBTs!
Alyssa Milano gifted us with one such picture a few weeks back, and when ET sat down with the actress and designer as she launched her new line of paper towels with Viva, we had to ask about her days with Brit Brit and JT. The days of bucket hats and fedoras, denim on denim … the early 2000s.
“They were super cute, super in love,” she told ET. “They just seemed like the perfect match!”
Yeah, we thought so too. But alas, amid cheating rumors, Justin and Britney went their separate ways in 2002 after about three years of dating. Alyssa says, though they seemed like the perfect pair at the time, she didn’t necessarily think they’d stay together forever – “They were 20!”
And here’s a bit of #TBT trivia for you: Alyssa dated Justin for a few months shortly after he and Britney broke up! As for people who wish Justin and Britney had stuck it out, Alyssa’s sentiment is basically … cry me a river. “Everyone needs to get over it,” she says.
OK, we’ll try. But if you want to cry into your denim jumpsuit relish the nostalgia a little more, watch Britney’s performance at the 2000 VMAs below.
