Justin Long Looks Back on Working with Britney Spears on 'Crossroads'

Justin Long is getting sentimental.

The 42-year-old actor took to Instagram on Throwback Thursday (December 3) to reflect on working with Britney Spears on Crossroads.

“Some ‘Crossroads’ memories… I remember being slightly nervous to work with Britney Spears – she was such a massive star in 2002 (as she still is),” Justin wrote. “When she introduced herself to me in the makeup trailer, I was disarmed by how sweet and NOT famous she seemed – just a nice girl (not yet a woman) from Louisiana. She immediately made me feel comfortable, as did Tamra Davis (the director) and @shondarhimes (the writer – p.s. what ever happened to HER???) and, despite having a small part, I felt encouraged to play around and improvise a bit – such a great working environment (they even let me blatantly rip off one of my favorite scenes from ‘Take the money and Run’). I was also excited to work with Eric Edwards who shot some of my favorite Gus Van Sant movies like ‘My Own Private Idaho’ and ‘To Die For’ (we worked together again a few years later on ‘The Breakup’)”

He continued: “Britney seemed to get exponentially more tense (totally understandably) whenever we walked off set with her bodyguard ‘Big something’ (my memory is so bad but I remember really liking him – a massive, warm, friendly, terrifying guy). People would clamor to get to her and paparazzi were constantly lurking behind trees, in bushes, etc.
Years later, when the tabloid frenzy surrounding Britney reached a fever pitch, I remember feeling so sorry for her. Nobody deserves to be hounded and harassed like that – least of all a very sweet person – one who behaved kindly towards a young nervous actor who occupied a much lower rung on the hierarchical ladder of that film set.”

If you forgot, Crossroads was released back in 2002 and starred Britney, Taryn Manning, and Zoe Saldana.

“When I saw the movie, I remember thinking that it looked like I was wearing pantyhose on my head because the makeup people only put makeup on my pasty white face and failed to cover up the rest of my translucent body (probably because it would’ve gotten all over the sheets🤢)” Justin concluded. “Though I personally think it makes Britney’s skin tone look that much nicer – and she was the star, after all, despite not acting like one :) #tbt”

Justin Long Thinks He Has Coronavirus, But Can't Get Tested

Justin Long believes that he has contracted coronavirus, but he hasn’t been able to get tested as he’s not in a high-risk group.

The 41-year-old actor says that his younger brother Christian Long‘s girlfriend returned home from a work trip and came down with all of the COVID-19 symptoms.

“We should tell everyone that you actually might have corona. You think you do. I might have it as well,” Justin said while chatting with Christian on his podcast Life is Short.

“I do have it,” Christian added. “We’re not just being paranoid.”

“Sadly, Christian‘s girlfriend Maggie came back from her work trip and a couple days later, she was very ill. She had classic corona symptoms. She had fever, dry cough, all the things that they’re saying people have with COVID,” Justin said.

Christian continued, “She’s on day 12 of it now and thankfully, the last 24 hours or so, she’s had no fever and seems to be doing a lot better. The weird thing is, the day after she came down with symptoms, a couple weeks ago, Justin and I came down with very mild versions of the exact same symptoms.”

“It was the achiness, some nausea, headaches, and then the tightness in the chests, we started noticing,” Justin said. “But then the strangest thing that happened, which we then read was typical of this disease, is that, it hasn’t happened to me, but Maggie and Christian lost their sense of taste and smell.”

We hope everyone feels better soon! Here’s a list of all the celebrities who have tested positive for coronavirus so far.
