I’ll give you a hint: it’s the one who didn’t kill Heath Ledger.
Anyway, my general knee-jerk reaction is all like ‘Woo! I totally thought he was losing his damn mind palling around with that butch Snook-alike‘ that he took to the movies last week, but my SECOND knee-jerk reaction (I can do that, you know) is WTF? Justin Timberlake and Ashley Olsen? In what world does that make any sense?
The story comes from Us Weekly, and even though they’re more reputable than, say, Star, I still have my reservations about this one:
[Us Weekly] reports that Justin Timberlake and Ashley Olsen — both newly single, former child stars with their own fashion labels — have been inseparable (and flirty!) in and around NYC of late. One insider close to the pair (spotted together at the Greenwich Hotel, a Saturday Night Live afterparty, two Broadway shows and a polo match outside the city) tells Us: “They are hooking up.”
Adds another source of the unexpected twosome, who both ended high-profile relationships in March (he with Jessica Biel after four years together, she with actor Justin Bartha after two years): “They’re really trying to keep it on the down-low.” A rep for Timberlake denies anything non-platonic, telling Us: “They are friends. They are not romantically involved.”
So, I guess what the magazine is trying to say without my particular brand of crass, is that the two are just fucking. And in Hollywood, as much as anywhere else, a lot of that goes on. No biggie. But I’m just kind of ‘huh?’ about the whole thing, I guess, because I grew up with Mary-Kate and Ashley as MICHELLE TANNER on Full House. I even share the same BIRTHDAY with these bitches (June 13th, it’s coming up, mark your calendars!) and I can’t see anyone being all like ‘Oh, yeah, remember that Michelle chick from Full House? I gotta get me a piece of that.’ I know these girls outgrew their FH roles, but to me, they’ll ALWAYS be Michelle Tanner.
What about you guys: do you think the Timberlake/Olsen bang rumors are legit?
