Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried - W magazine, October 2011

In Justin we trust...

Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried are cover stars of the October 2011 edition of W magazine, in line with their upcoming movie In Time, a sci-fi thriller.

Here is an excerpt from the interview with Justin:

My sense is that your film career changed when you started hosting Saturday Night Live in 2003.
JT: Yeah, I would say that. Hosting SNL was something I’d always wanted to do. The show allowed me to play to my strengths—mixing music with comedy seemed like a way into that world. And then, the second time I hosted, I did the digital short.

“Dick in a Box”?
JT: Yes. Thus started my love affair with Andy Samberg. We have two kids now—two boys. One of them is named Samberg and the other is named Timberlake. So they’re Timberlake Samberg and Samberg Timberlake. I think it’s supercreative and egoless to name your kids after yourself [Laughs].

Samberg says he was nervous when he pitched you “Dick in a Box.”
JT: Really? I remember telling Andy that it was important to me to make the song really singable. Melodically speaking, the songs that came out of the Nineties boy-group era we were channeling were really good songs. And a lack of self-­awareness is a very important detail in that short. We had an elaborate backstory, too: For instance, our group’s name is 2:30 a.m.
