Justin Timberlake Covers GQ's Men of the Year 2013 Issue!

Justin Timberlake is casual cool on the cover of GQ‘s Men on of the Year issue for December 2013, on newsstands November 19.

Here is what the 32-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On the negative response to his movie Runner, Runner: “The movie didn’t do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn’t have said that. I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn’t have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a dickhead…. It just shocked me because, like, you’re trade magazines.None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it.”

On not believing he is a cool guy: “Listen, I’m not cool… Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don’t be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad…. I’ve made a career out of doing things that I should not be doing. I wasn’t cool about it. Because being cool would have meant I passed up on those opportunities. If you do that, it’s because you’re afraid. And what are you afraid of? You know?”

On growing up in Memphis & responding to his critics: “It’s a struggling city with a defeatist attitude. I’m from this town, and I grew up with a little bit of a chip on my shoulder, so sometimes I find it funny that I’ve been able to acquire the patience it takes to be kind to people in our business. Because sometimes I just want to f–king kill everybody.”

    your film failed because you are terrible actor! even critics doesn’t want to watch your films. i predict that you will become the next robin thicke.

  • Maria

    The man of the Year 2013 is for me my Boyfriend, but also Justin looks really great on that cover. He has great Talent and I love his music.


    He sounds like an moron and has an ugly face in that picture but the body looks great, i like the way he is dressed

  • Beck

    Justin Timberlake in Robin Thicke’s style should be the headline lol

  • dd

    he’s a douche.

  • Kim

    He’s so full of himself. And he’s a great singer, songwriter, performer, but he’s a terrible actor. Funny fact that he’s the only ex-member from a boyband who became so huge as a solo artist, and at the begining of his solo carrer, the only thing he used to do was talking sh!t about Britney Spears. He made up his solo career based on his relationship with her. He’s a douche.

  • David

    As much as I admire Justin, I think it should have been Ashton Kutcher! He got a second chance to set things right & boy has he grabbed it both hands. His teens choice awards speech & his interview with Ellen has made me see him in a different light altogether. We all make mistakes, he too has made many many mistakes, but he seems to have got his act together. He is proving to be a great role model for my kids & so many others too! Kudos to him:)

  • Rocky

    @living in a box:

    You should proof your notes before sending out. “even critics doesn’t want to watch”. DOESN’T want to watch? Next Robin Thicke? What are you smoking??

  • Rocky

    Love the cover and love the ‘chair’ shot. Justin rocks it all the time! I don’t know who mentioned Ashton Kutcher, but that almost made me want to throw up!! GO JUSTIN!!

  • Timberlake

    Sexy man, a great actor, great singer&songwriter
    He is the man of the year

  • Timberlake

    @living in a box why are u so jealous ?
    Maybe cuz your life is sooo boring?

  • Rosa


    Brit cheated on him! He was young and he was very hurt. He’s grown up has realized mistakes can happen, so move on and boy did he ever!

  • living in a box

    @Rocky: name me one his memorable performance in acting? social network? in social network critics praised more david fincher and jesse eisenberg. want more proof? go to box office mojo and check his record.

    let me rephrase my last words, well at least i’m not dumb like you.

  • laly

    He’s just not a leading man… he’s not even an “actor” i can take seriously, so yeah he can stop now.

  • ace11

    I am shocked that he is still married to Jessica Biel

    Guess he can’t let her go because “she is good for the image”

  • ballboy

    He should quit because he is a crap actor.

  • natus

    I like the guy, but in this interview he sounds like a douche.

  • Dani

    Love him, he is very talented & funny

  • Amanda132

    he’s a typical liberal. angry and stupid.

  • Aram Mestre

    The only song that I like from him is “Mirrors”.

  • Abby

    I like Justin,but is he serious with his response to that first question? Rude.

  • DYlan

    He’s a still a narcissistic little prick. Yes, you should just quit acting, because you suck, plain and simple. Little douche.

  • Flo89

    Totally agree!!

  • Moon

    I think the same thing!!!

  • jun

    Hardly articulate is he! I genuinely thought this was a mock article, he sounds like an utter moron and can borrow my ladder to help him get over himself.
