Justin Timberlake Wedding Video Participant Speaks Out

By all accounts, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had a lovely wedding reception.

Of course, there are a few "invitees" we haven't heard from- the homeless "actors" in their wedding video.

One such "actor", a man known only as Eddie, tells the story of how he came to star in the now infamous video. He says:

"One guy came up and said, 'I'm gonna bless you today'… He says, 'I want you to say a few nice things for somebody I know that's gonna get married.'"

After saying the lines, Eddie was paid about $40. He never really gave the encounter much thought after that, until the news came to light that it was used in a mocking wedding video.

How does Eddie feel about it now? He says:

"That makes me feel really bad … that was a trick played on me."

Eddie isn't the only one regretting his part in the video. The man who filmed it, Justin Huchel is scrambling to control the damage to his friends' reputation.

His lawyer has already sent a letter demanding the video be destroyed, saying that showing it is illegal. Attorney Michael J. Saltz says:

"Mr. Huchel made a video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake's wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake's knowledge. Further, Mr. Huchel informs us that his copyrighted video was recently stolen."

We have an idea. Next time you want to make a joke out of the juxtaposition of opulence and poverty, why don't you take your rich bootie down to a soup kitchen and volunteer?

It also won't be funny, but at least you'll be doing some good!

    Ahh sorry perez but it's not his friends reputation being ruined. It's the guy, Justin Huchel's, reputation being ruined. He is a high powered real estate agent. Timberlake and Biel had no prior knowledge of this video. Nor do we know how they reacted if they even saw it. I can bet though they weren't happy with it. Quit trying to blame this on Justin and Jessica when it's not their fault.

    emmm….overreacting much?? It was for a private affair and it was just a comment video, there was not any degrading towards the people talking…I think that it was actually funny and people are just reading too much into this.

    Consider you are so upset by this, why not get your ass down to a soup kitchen and practice what you preach? Oh thats right you've got a reservation at Per Se.

    I send a bit of money when I am able to a couple of shelters - not able to volunteer due to disabilities. I feel badly for this man, read in another story he had a job interview lined up today, hope things work out for him as he seems like he is trying to improve himself.

    I did a little search on Justin Huchel; the douche-bag who filmed those people on the street. Go to FUNNY or DIE, and check out his video: "Do They Know There's No Santa?" The song makes fun of the poor, and suggests that they should tell their kids that Santa is dead, and that if they want to have gifts this year, they should get their toys from UNICEF.

    If the participants in this video agreed to it, SHUT THE FUCK up! Looks like they did…
