How Justin’s Speedo Became a Thong

By: Celebuzz / June 11, 2008

Justin Timberlake has quickly become the most talked about player in Mike Myers’ new flick The Love Guru, for a scene in which he shows off his musculature in a tiny, power-packed Speedo.

Justin plays a hockey player, and told Extra the most memorable part of his costuming for the movie was its….invasiveness?

“This may be TMI, but I was constantly digging out those wedgies!” Timberlake said. Yes, it was, and thanks for that.

“I work out pretty diligently,” he said, adding that Lycra provided him with “Speedo-divation…that’s Speedo motivation put in the same word.”

Timberlake has been moonlighting as an actor in the last couple of years and has received mostly positive reviews for roles in Alpha Dog, Black Snake Moan and Southland Tales.

Myers says Timberlake didn’t once scoff at his wardrobe: “He’s not an uncomfortable person. This is a guy who was golfing yesterday on a pro course and got under 100. The Speedo is getting some very good reactions from people…some people are very happy!”

They’re probably happy to have something to focus on besides your latest attempt at subverting pop culture into an asinine character. Think about it: Justin’s crotch versus your take on Doug Henning smashed with the Maharishi.

It’s a no-brainer. The crotch wins.
