When you think of Justin Timberlake you see him as this energetic dancing pop star with a gritty star quality that has allowed him to cross over into making action films. But you may not have believed is that one day Timberlake would fall unconscious on a movie set, almost having a near death experience, which to be saved required a kiss from his dazzling co-star. Well add it to your list.
The 31-year-old actor revealed he almost died on the set of his new movie “Trouble with the Curve” when he and co-star Amy Adams shot a scene in freezing-cold waters.
At the premiere of the film in Los Angeles on Sept. 19, Timberlake told “Entertainment Tonight” the harrowing story, which took place in northern Atlanta. “We shot that scene in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the water was just below fifty degrees. It was freezing,” Timberlake explained. “Amy actually saved my life. Unbeknownst to me, I was turning blue and couldn’t process a thought.” Justin said he began to lose consciousness as a result of the extreme cold. “So she actually saved my life. I owe Amy Adams my life.”
And although it was a very serious moment, Adams had to joke with reporters when questioned about giving Jessica Biel’s fiancé mouth-to-mouth. “I saved his life; I did,” she told “ET.” “Some people call it mouth-to-mouth, some people call it kissing — any way, it’s nice work if you can get it.”
Eventually, the pair reshot the dreaded scene in a water tank “that was more bearable,” according to Timberlake.
Well, wasn’t that a lucky end to a film. Thank goodness Amy knew how to do CPR!
Biel better be thanking her lucky stars Adams was there to rescue her man!
The movie also stars Clint Eastwood, where Justin also revealed he was his “role model.”
We’ll also see if he makes his return to music, as well as acting!
