Justin Timberlake admits to having a crush on Pippa Middleton
Justin Timberlake might be back with Jessica Biel, but that didn't stop him from telling Esquire UK that American men have a thing for the Middletons.
"Us American males are big fans of Pippa," Timberlake told the lad mag, according to the Daily Mail. "We like the Middletons very much. I'm going to sound like a sleaze ball. I'm going to stop right there!"
Timberlake isn't the only American to praise Kate's younger sister, who goes by P.Middy in the British tabloids. According to E! News, Usher also voiced his approval, telling Look magazine that he wanted Pippa to model for his lingerie line.
"I don't think there's a more beautiful, more stunning, more talked-about woman in the world at the moment," Usher told Look magazine. "I'm going to be approaching her in the next few weeks and setting up a meeting this summer."
"The great thing about her is that she would be a global brand," the R&B star continued. "Everybody knows her now, she would be perfect. I am sure everybody is trying to sign her up and she won't be cheap, but she has the looks and the popularity to really establish a new product."
Middleton's appearance at her sister's wedding earned her the unofficial title of "Her Royal Hotness," a website dedicated to her derriere and a 240,000 member-strong Facebook fan group.
Timberlake currently stars in the science fiction thriller, "In Time," which was released in theaters on October 28.
"In Time" takes place in the future, where the human aging gene has been turned off and to avoid overpopulation, people use time as currency. In this world, the rich can live forever and when a young man named Will Salas (Timberlake) inherits a fortune of time, he ends up fighting against the corrupt police force known as 'time keepers.'
Amanda Seyfried stars as Salas' hostage and romantic interest and Olivia Wilde as his mother.
The 30-year-old singer and actor rose to fame as a member of the boy band N'Sync before launching his solo career and has taken home six Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards. His first two albums each sold over 7 million copies.
Timberlake has taken a break from music to concentrate on acting and received some positive notice for his role in the 2010 film Academy Award nominated film "The Social Network."
Timberlake told Esquire UK that in spite of his thriving film career, he has no intentions of being a serious actor.
"People have made me feel I'm trying to be a serious actor, which is hilarious," Timberlake said. "I'm not trying to be a serious actor. I just want to do a good job."
In March, Timberlake and actress-girlfriend Jessica Biel called it quits after four years of dating. However, the two have been spending time together in recent weeks.
