(Newser) – Justin Timberlake and Playboy really get into it in a new, and very long, interview. (Sample line: “Listen, you’re touching on a deep issue for me.”) Highlights:

  • On his new movie, Friends With Benefits: “I couldn’t tell you the number of people in the crew watching me and my bare ass, but it was a lot.”
  • On working with ex Cameron Diaz in another upcoming movie, Bad Teacher: “Honestly, the only thing I was worried about before I said yes to that movie was being asked that question. I knew at some point we’d have to promote the film and people would say, ‘Oh my God, that’s so weird that you two dated for four years.’”
  • On rumors of flings with Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, and Olivia Wilde: “None of it’s true, so I shouldn’t even dignify it with an answer. … I’m not going to avoid spending time with people because someone who doesn’t know me makes assumptions about what’s going on. That’s bullshit.”

  • On why he keeps dating famous women: “The girl from the dry cleaners is not going to understand how I feel about the work schedule and pressures I have.”
  • On his diet for the Friends With Benefits nude scenes: It “mostly came down to not drinking as much beer. And you know, beer is good, so that was hard.”
  • On whether he would ever publicly sing an ‘N Sync song again: “I don’t think so.”
  • On his fashion regrets: “The cornrows I wore with ‘N Sync. That was pretty bad.” (He’s not a fan of his infamous denim suit, either.)
