Justin: Olivia Wilde is Hottest Movie Mom Ever
October 17, 2011
Justin Timberlake is about to show off a different side of his acting chops while shooting guns and kicking ass in his upcoming action thriller In Time. Justin sat down with The Insider's Kevin Frazier to discuss the role and explains how it felt playing the son of his sexy co-star Olivia Wilde, who in real life is three years his junior.
"I told her, I said: 'You're officially the hottest movie mom of all time,'" Justin said of Olivia's role.
In Time -- hitting theaters October 28 -- is a futuristic thriller in which everyone stops aging at age 25 and must pay to buy more "time." As a result, the rich get richer -- and stay young -- while the poor have to beg, borrow and steal in order to survive. The film boasts a very attractive cast, including Amanda Seyfried, Matt Bomer, Cillian Murphy, Alex Pettyfer, Mad Men star Vincent Kartheiser and Big Bang Theory Emmy nominee Johnny Galecki..
Justin said he really admired the character he plays in the movie and the role also made him think about his own recent approach to life. "Especially doing this movie too, it's like it really made it apparently clear to me -- it's like you should appreciate things more. Stop running so much and take some time."
The actor/musician said it was a blast doing an action movie that involved "shooting guns and kicking guys' asses and flipping cars" and added that the film basically embodied every boyhood fantasy he's ever had. He also said he enjoyed working with Amanda -- with whom he has make-out scenes -- and explains why at one point how he had to save her from a brutal fall while she was running in heels.
