Justin Timberlake Is Iffy On Music Career, But Loves Acting So Much He’d Do It “Butt Naked”

|

Remember when the only acting Justin Timberlake did was as a marionette in the  Bye Bye Bye video? Or when he had to pretend to understand why Chris Kirkpatrick was in ‘N Sync at all? Those days are over now, and recently his success in film has Timberlake unsure about the future of his music career. As Justin explains, “I never stop making music. I don’t know what else to tell you, except that I just don’t know [in] what capacity I want to be involved anymore.” Anyone alive after 1997 associates Timberlake’s dulcet falsetto with the sound of a thousand panties gently dropping to the floor. Are we really going to lose that angel’s song?

At least we have Justin on the big screen, where we can continue to stare at him. Timberlake described his audition for The Social Network, explaining, “I have to fight against my music career–I’m cognizant of that. But I didn’t care. I loved the part and I wanted to do work with David [Fincher] so bad that I was like, ‘We can read this scene butt naked if you guys want.’” Disappointingly, that quote suggests that Justin did not play all of his scenes totally nude. We guess we’ll see the movie anyway (since it’s also supposed to be, you know, amazing and stuff) but still. Follow those acting instincts, Justin. That’s how you get an Oscar. If we were the ones giving out Oscars.
