Justin Timberlake is known to be one of the most soulful singers in Hollywood and now, we are learning that the pop star also has skills on the hardwood.
Timberlake shocked fans on Tuesday night when he made a half-court shot while hooping on the Los Angeles Lakers’ home court.
In a video shared on the singer’s Instagram page, the father of one, clad in a black beanie and sweats, can be seen launching a basketball from mid court. Swish! Yep, he did that.
Wait, it gets better. Not only did the star sink one shot — he sank two! “Still got that range… Grizz took the L. All good though… bounce back,” he captioned one video. Jessica Biel’s husband captioned the other, “And just in case y’all thought it was a fluke.”
Timberlake is known to be a major sports fan. During the 2016 Espy Awards, the 35-year-old honored a group of retired athletes, including Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Olympic Gold medalist Abby Wambach and former Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant.
Timberlake presented all three athletes with the icon award, an achievement that Bryant was incredibly humbled by. “It’s amazing to be standing here,” he said.
“I have a lot of respect for these two. I know the sacrifices that went along with standing here today,” Bryant explained. “We’re up here because we had a dream and let nothing stand in our way…We were never satisfied, never finished, we’ll never be retired.”
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
