They are well known for spending much of their time championing charitable causes.
But Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s reputation for goodwill may take a hit after it emerged a video was screened at their wedding which uses homeless people as a comedy device.
It was seemingly made by the singer’s real estate agent friend Justin Huchel, and shows what appear to be real homeless people on the city streets purporting to be acquaintances who couldn’t make it to the ceremony.
Friend of the stars: This man was billed a friend of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel in a video that mocked the homeless that was shown at their post-wedding party
The video, which was first obtained by Gawker and was seemingly shown at their post-ceremony bash, starts with the message, ‘greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn’t make it.’
It starts with a man missing several teeth saying: ‘Jessica and Justin, I ain’t seen y’all in a while. The gift is in the mail.’
The film then switches to a transvestite, who says: ‘Good luck and watch your man.’
It closes with a shirtless bearded man, who said: ‘Justin, Jessica, it’s me, Herbert.’
The full film is actually 8mins and 30secs long, and at points features Justin’s solo hit SexyBack.
A man’s voice is heard speaking off-camera at one point, apparently Huchel’s, and he asks a man when he last saw Timberlake and Biel, adding, ‘Did you and Jessica mess around?’
After the brief messages it fades to black screen with the titling, ‘Love Huch and Rachel.’
Watch your man: This transvestite had some sage words for Jessica in his portion of the ‘joke’ video
Hutchel’s attorney Michael Saltz confirmed the video was shown to guests at the wedding in a letter sent to Gawker after the estate agent was approached for comment.
The lawyer wrote: ‘Mr. Huchel made [the] video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake’s wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake’s knowledge.’
Mr Saltz also threatened to ‘immediately file suit’ if the video was publicised as it would be infringing on Hutchel’s copyright.
The leaking of the video is sure to be an embarrassment for well known philanthropist Justin, who previously donated an item to watchmaker Nixon to be made into a watch, the sale of which benefitted the MusiCares MAP Fund which helps address addiction and recovery needs of members of the music community.
He also teamed up with REM’s Michael Stipe for a charity single to continue aid for Hurricane Katrina victims; proceeds benefit Mercy Corps.
Friend of the family: The video also claimed this shirtless man was another of their unknown chums
And last year he was awarded the Big Help award for his charity work at the 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards held at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles.
Jessica meanwhile has appeared in videos supporting GoodSearch and Much Love, as well as founding the Make The Difference Network with her family.
It takes the shine off Justin’s recent proclamations their wedding as a ‘total fantasy’, adding that the actress in her stunning gown was ‘the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.’
The 31-year-old singer made the admission as the couple revealed the first picture of their magical wedding ceremony in the pages of America’s Peoplemagazine.
In the shot, Justin, wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo that he helped to design, is seen literally jumping for joy, while his new wife sits serenely in the foreground in the pictures, which they sold for $300,000 following the ceremony, which is estimated to have cost around $6.5million.

Jessica, 30, looked stunning for her happy day in a custom-made Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown – shunning traditional white or ivory for a beautiful petal pink colour.
And it seems that Justin was a fan of Jessica’s brave gown choice, revealing in the magazine that his bride was ‘the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.’
Jessica teamed the strapless gown with a matching ethereal cathedral-length veil, clutching a bouquet of white flowers as she beamed for the camera.
Speaking about their romantic Italian ceremony, Jessica said: ‘It was a total fantasy experience’, with Justin adding, ‘It was a really special evening.’

In more details from the day, Justin revealed that he accompanied bride Jessica as she walked down the aisle with a romantic ballad he had written just for her.
He said: ‘It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her.’
The pair tied the knot after a week-long celebration, which saw guests including Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samberg enjoy horseback riding and various cocktail parties at the exclusive Borgo Egnazia resort.
And Justin revealed: ‘It was a lot to ask of them to travel, so we figured we’d give our guests a good party!’
Despite the idyllic surroundings all did not go according to plan for the happy couple, as new reports reveal that Justin ‘wasn’t feeling well’ on his wedding day.
However, the singer-turned-actor managed to hide his discomfort and was in a ‘good mood’ as he tied the knot.
An insider told Us Weekly: ‘Justin wasn’t feeling well all week and on his wedding day.
‘They shut the place down! They had a big night at the bar where everyone went crazy – but Justin wasn’t feeling great. [But] Justin was in a good mood. He had fun.
