“It’s [sex scenes] part of your job and we’re both professionals and we definitely pushed it to the end of the shoot. We took two weeks and shot all the scenes in bulk. I think that was wise. But there was nothing really sexy about it. We were in this bed, going, ‘Man I hope people think this is funny.’ For me, personally, watching sex scenes is awkward, so we thought it was a good opportunity for comedy. (They’re awkward) because you watch two people f**k. … I’m joking, I love watching sex – I’m a guy, so I like porn and sex scenes.”
See, boyfriend really had me going there for a second. I was like, “Wow, that’s a really brave, really innovative thing to say, Justin Timberlake,” and Jessica Biel? Well, she’s probably sitting at home, fretfully yanking out fistfuls of her hair saying “I thought he said porn made him uncomfortable!?!”
I mean, I completely have no doubts that’s how this is going today.

See this video? Yeah, I know you’re probably thinking one of two things – a) Oh dude, I know what this is! or, b) What the hell is this? If you’re in the former, don’t ruin it for your fellow readers, just bliss out and listen to it again, and if you’re in the latter, boy, do I have a surprise for you: it’s the return to music for Justin Timberlake!
While I’m not all that impressed, to tell the truth, I am pretty happy that he’s dabbling again. He’s just got it all: the brains, the acting chops, the vocals, and the (sort of) looks. He needs to exercise these things simultaneously, and what better way to start than finally getting back to music?

Aah. This is what Justin Timberlake did on his recent appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. I didn’t see it ’til this video, because I’m barely up past 10 PM anymore (apparently we’re getting old, friends), but I’m so glad that I happened to check the recaps today and found it.
It’s got the best of JT: his mad dance skills, his singing talents, and his cheeseball-acting antics that’ve gotten him pretty far in the past few years in lieu of success similar to that of ‘N Sync’s. It’s still no ‘SexyBack,’ but you know what? I’m not going to be too picky today.
Well done, Justin Timberlake, and thank you.

Next, Kelsey De Santis asked Timberlake to be her date, and he totally accepted. Well played, Corporal De Santis.
“She’s funny, she’s sweet, she’s mature,” the Marine sergeant says in his video, a long-stemmed rose in hand. “She’s the all-around perfect woman.”
Sgt. Lewis pleads a pretty good case, too: the young veteran did tours of both Afghanistan and Iraq and, according to a recent tweet, he plans to serenade Ms. White with a song next.
Internet! Let’s make this happen!

I know Emily’s got a hard-on for Justin Timberlake’s special brand of music (and I do too, don’t get me wrong), but I am SO LOVING everything that he’s been doing on both television and the big screen. So much so that I might actually go see that crappy-looking Friends With Benefits movie that’s being hyped up as the flick of the summer. That says a lot, especially when I really only venture out to the movies for special occasions like the screening of the final Harry Potter film, or my newest obsession, Twilight‘s Breaking Dawn.
Anyway, here’s Justin being his funny, charming self for a short ESPY awards promo, which is going to be aired on ESPN sometime on July 13th. He’s set to present the Capital One Cup, which I dig, I suppose, since they finally gave me a really great new rate on a card I’ve only had with them for FOUR YEARS now.
Isn’t he just a doll?

First of all, I hate Justin Timberlake’s burgeoning movie career. Sure, he’s cute. Sure, he has innate comedic timing. You know what he doesn’t have? A current Billboard hit. Get back to it, Timberlake! Dance for us! Dance!
But more importantly, I hate it when Justin Timberlake stands too close to Mila Kunis like this. In the PSA video, when he feels up Mila’s butt and makes a “Hmm” face, I think my brain might explode. This pretend-couple’s hotness may actually kill me.
On why “friends with benefits” couplings are always a bad decision, from next month’s Elle:
“It is such a good idea—until it’s a bad idea,” [Timberlake] says.
Kunis certainly agrees. “Ultimately, it ends when someone wants to go and get serious with somebody. More times than not, a person catches feelings and somebody gets hurt,” she says. “When a female orgasms, a hormone gets released. I’ve never met a girl who can have sex without an ounce of feeling.”
Interrupting his costar, Timberlake asks: “Is that just a woman convincing herself so she feels like it’s okay to have sex with someone?”
“Fifty-fifty,” Kunis, 27, says.
I take serious issue with Kunis’s statement (the hormone is oxytocin, by the way, and it isn’t only a lady thing). Did you know that, during a lady’s big O, women have no emotional feelings at all? Science! Science says to have casual sex!
If you need me, I’ll be over here, working on my dissertation.
