Justin Timberlake On Why People Love Movies: "We Look To Relate"

22 May 2013, 13:49

The 'Mirrors' singer has been promoting his newly released film Trouble With The Curve.

Justin Timberlake has opened up about why he feels people enjoy going to the cinema to watch movies, and says it's because we want to escape as well as relate to the characters on screen.

The 'SexyBack' singer, whose latest film Trouble With The Curve is out on DVD now, says the Clint Eastwood starring film was a particularly great experience because of how it treats its audience.

"Well, we don't want to go watch people be perfect," Justin told The Metro, when asked about his new film Trouble With The Curve. "We go to the movies because we think we're going to escape but what we really start doing as soon as the first frame of the movie starts rolling is we look to relate.

"That's what I love about this movie," he explained. "It treats you like you're intelligent and humorous and have a good heart."

Justin has taken some time out from his burgeoning Hollywood acting career in 2013 to focus on his return to music, after releasing his third studio album 'The 20/20 Experience' earlier this year.

The 'Suit & Tie' singer will now follow-up on that release with a second volume of 'The 20/20 Experience' set to be released on 30th September.

Justin Timberlake will serve as the special guest host of the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 at Wembley Stadium on 9th June.
