Remember when Justin Timberlake used to make music? Yeah, neither do we! The ever-evolving career of Justin Timberlake is having another hot moment, this time alongside Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. JT stars in this week’s baseball drama Trouble with the Curve with acting greats Clint and Amy. Does Justin have what it takes to hold his own opposite an Academy Award winner and Academy Award nominee? He might just surprise you. In fact, there’s a lot you probably don’t know about Justin Timberlake. Let’s start with 5 of them!
Justin Timberlake has numerous tattoos
From the large cross on his left shoulder and the angel with his Mom’s initials on back to the N’Sync logo tats on his wrist and ankle to the zodiac sign on his calf, Justin Timberlake has made some good, some bad and some ugly choices in tattoos over the years. If you thought a celebrity of his status was immune to teen mistakes in ink, think again. He’s even got the Chinese character for “music” tattooed on his ankle. Yikes. Mama Timberlake has apparently put a stop to JT permanently marking his body, however. She allegedly says her son can only get one more tattoo: the name of the woman he marries. Does that mean a Jessica tattoo is in Justin’s near future?

Justin Timberlake Was A Reality TV Contestant
Long before there was American Idol, The X Factor and The Voice, Star Search was the original reality TV talent competition. When Justin was 11, he sang Alan Jackson’s “Love’s Got A Hold On You” while wearing a cowboy hat and western shirt, like a true Southern boy. Unfortunately, he lost.
Justin and Ryan Gosling Have A Long History
Everyone knows that Justin met his future love interest Britney Spears while on The New Mickey Mouse Club, but he also starred alongside a young Ryan Gosling. Yes, two of the 21st century’s biggest heartthrobs seem a lot less intimidating when you picture them side by side dancing and singing while sporting mouse ears.
Justin Has An Emmy
Grammies apparently aren’t enough for Mr. Timberlake. JT also has an Emmy, which he won with Andy Samberg for their viral video “Dick in a Box” for Saturday Night Live.
Justin’s First Feature Film Went Straight To Video
Before he starred in massive hits like Bad Teacher and Friends With Benefits, Justin was in a film called Edison alongside Morgan Freeman. Never heard of it? That’s because it went straight to video.
