Judging by the sexed-up trailer to 'Friends with Benefits,' Justin Timberlake doesn't hold a lot back. He continues that trend when sitting down with Playboy for a revealing interview. Timberlake's candid details would probably have gotten him kicked out of the Mickey Mouse Club, including details that he kicks back with pot every once in a while. Timberlake doesn't shy away from the question when asked if he smokes. "Absolutely," he says.
Our friends at MTV Buzzworthy sent us their 10 favorite reveals from the interview, on newsstands now.
1. On managing personalities: "Some people are just better high."
2. On marijuana: "The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking."
3. On his need to chill: "I feel I'm just getting to a point in my life where I'm looking around, going, There's a lot to enjoy if I can just sit still, actually stop and take more time."
4. On how he chooses his friends and relationships: "You probably gravitate toward people who understand your scenario."
5. On sex scenes with the stunning Mila Kunis: "I'd be lying if I said it wasn't completely awkward. I couldn't tell you the number of people in the crew watching me and my bare a**, but it was a lot."
6. On real-life "special friend" scenarios: "As corny as it sounds, the 'friends' part counts just as much as the 'benefits' part, if not more."
7. On when you can expect a new Justin Timberlake album: "Music is not my focus right now. It may be someday. It could happen next month or next year, but right now it's not where it's at for me."
8. On "Jersey Shore": "Awkward in an awesome way. I've never seen the show, but I met them backstage at the MTV awards and they were this fearsome group, storming around the hallway. That looked pretty awesome."
9. On Old Britney vs. New Britney: "In Britney's defense, if you pulled up a video I did from 2003, I
couldn't do the s*** I did then either."
10. On the music on his iPod: "Radiohead has the ability to make you feel you're cramped up in a closet and then, all of a sudden, you burst out into an open wheat field and everything turns sepia or something."
