Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried W Magazine October 2011 Cover
Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried as the picture-perfect political couple for W Magazine's October 2011 Cover.
Lynn Hirschberg: Justin, it's nearly impossible to transition from megafamous pop star to actor, but in the past year--from The Social Network to Friends With Benefits to In Time, a futuristic thriller that opens October 28--you've made it look easy. The first time I was conscious of you being in a film was when I saw Southland Tales at the Cannes film festival in 2006. You were practically the only part of the movie the audience didn't boo.
Justin Timberlake: It wouldn't be the first time I got booed. In my younger days, I got booed a lot. I had bottles thrown at me by an AC/DC fan when I played a benefit in Toronto for SARS [severe acute respiratory syndrome]. I got to the show and the bill said the Rolling Stones, AC/DC, the Guess Who, Rush, and Justin Timberlake, and I remember thinking, One of these things is not like the others. And, boy, did I find out quickly. I started singing and there was an assault of beer cans and bottles. I developed catlike reflexes from that experience.
