When we first met Amanda Seyfried, she was an utterly clueless but lovable Mean Girl. The rising star has since sang alongside Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia!, paid the bills with rom-coms Dear John and Letters To Juliet, and revved Liam Neeson‘s engine in Chloe. Today, Seyfried ditches her trademark long blond hair and rocks a red wig, starring alongside Justin Timberlake in sci-fi thriller In Time. Whether she’s in character, on a red carpet or just walking her beloved dog, Finn, Seyfried’s always on point.
Justin Timberlake’s In Time, opening in theaters next Friday, might feature him rushing to escape a pack of corrupt future time cops, but ain’t no sci-fi premise in the world can save the light beige suit/chocolate shirt/navy tie combo he rocked at last night’s In Time premiere in L.A.. While co-star Amanda Seyfried and stars like Olivia Wilde managed to look like they could stop a clock, Timberlake’s suit somehow appears to be from late ’70s and early 1990s at the same time. It’s like a time traveling outfit, but looks bad in every era! What do you think of Justin’s premiere look?
As you might have expected, Justin Timberlake’s Comic-Con experience was the same blend of raw geekiness and amazing smooth-ity that makes him our fantasy nerd boyfriend. While at the convention last week promoting his upcoming sci-fi thriller In Time, the singer/actor teamed up with Esquire reporter Chris Jones to dole out secretly sexy hugs while dressed as Sesame Street characters. “If you were at Comic-Con yesterday, and you took a picture with a sketchy Bert and Ernie… I was Bert. Justin Timberlake was Ernie,” Jones tweeted afterwards. People probably should have been tipped off when they saw a generic Ernie costume at a sci-fi/fantasy convention. Or when that same Ernie started radiating such intense sexual mojo, any person wearing a sexy Storm Trooper costume lost consciousness.
“His idea. Also had Elmo and Cookie Monster available. We thought Bert and Ernie made for better bonding,” Jones revealed on Twitter. “I would pay good money to see the faces of the teenage girls who had no idea Justin Timberlake’s arm was wrapped around them.” Well, they were probably just happy to have anyone‘s arm wrapped around them. This is Comic-Con, after all.

We’re not going to lie: we had to watch theIn Time trailer starring Justin Timberlake twice to fully understand what was going on. In case you don’t have the time (see what we did there? because it’s about a future dystopia where time is money?), let us break down the most important points that stood out to us. First of all, everyone in this trailer, which premiered yesterday at the San Diego Comic-Con, is 25 years old, since in Future America everyone is given a quarter century before you have to beg, borrow and, from the looks of it, murder to get more time. The only downside: your grandma might end up looking a teeny tiny bit hotter than you.
Second of all, seeing as how the Friends with Benefits actor costars alongside Amanda Seyfried, Alex Pettyfer and the always villainous Cillian Murphy, everyone in the future is also really, really, really ridiculously good looking. The film doesn’t explicitly say why, but since it 2099 AD, we have assume it’s result of some sort of hottiebommbalottie laser. Maybe a literal babe magnet, if we’ve mastered the technology.
