In a fun political themed spread Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried are featured on the cover of the October 2011 issue of W Magazine.
And in the accompanying interview, the “Sexy Back” stud talks about how his first gig on “Saturday Night Live” really propelled him into the acting game.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Amanda shared that her love scenes with Justin in their new film “In Time” were a blast to shoot.
“Sex scenes are great. A lot of my costars have been sexy guys my age, and so, why not? I’m not going to pretend it’s not fun. Justin was great—he had come from doing Friends With Benefits, where he basically had sex every day at work—and so it was easy for both of us. We just kind of got it on, and then were like, ‘That was good!’”
As for the film’s plot, Amanda explained,
“It’s set in the future, where money buys you time. My character falls in love with Justin’s character—she wants to give him all the time he needs so he can save the world. It’s very romantic. No matter what’s happening in my life, I can always get lost in the romances of my characters.”
