How Amy Adams Saved Justin Timberlake’s Life With a Kiss
Sometimes filming under certain conditions can be dangerous for an actor. Justin Timberlake experienced danger firsthand when he starred in the movie Trouble with the Curve. There was one particular scene in the movie that caused the singer turned actor to lose consciousness. But that was when his co-star, Oscar-nominee Amy Adams, stepped in to rescue him.
How being a singer sometimes made it difficult for Justin Timberlake to pursue acting
Justin Timberlake has been trying to conquer the world of Hollywood the same way he conquered the world of music/ He’s put in a lot of effort to build his filming resume, starring in films like Alpha Dog and the Social Network. But the performer’s transition from singing to acting wasn’t a walk in the park. Even after somewhat establishing himself, Timberlake still found he had to shed some of the stigmas that came with being a pop star.
What’s been more of a battle for me throughout the process of moving into acting is that I feel like I have to keep reassuring people that I’m not an asshole,” Timberlake once said according to Interview magazine. “There is a stigma that comes from being on stage and being a musician.”
But, as Timberlake knows, being an actor can present some physical challenges as well. This can especially be the case when actors do their own stunts and end up hurt in the process.

Justin Timberlake believed he almost died while filming the Clint Eastwood directed movie Trouble with the Curve, The N Sync alum found himself in temperatures that were a bit too much for him.
“We shot that scene in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the water was just below fifty degrees. It was freezing,” Timberlake told Entertainment Tonight (via Huffpost). “Unbeknownst to me, I was turning blue and couldn’t process a thought, so he actually saved my life. I owe Amy Adams’ life.”
Amy Adams later confirmed the incident and wasn’t shy about the fact she rescued Timberlake from danger.
“I saved his life, I did,” Adams said. “Some people call it mouth-to-mouth, some people call it kissing – anyway, it’s nice work if you can get it.”

Adams and Timberlake aren’t just co-workers, but they’re good friends as well. So much so that Timberlake was one of the many celebrities who honored the Sharp Objects star at the American Cinematheque Award gala. During the ceremony, Timberlake revealed to the audience that Adams becomes a different person when it comes to Karaoke night.
“Let the record show that the woman sitting right over there looking all sweet and innocent with the face of an all-American angel turns into a whole new person, a beast in fact, when she gets anywhere near a karaoke machine,” Timberlake revealed according to the Hollywood Reporter. “She pretty much bullied me into singing ‘A Whole New World’ from Disney’s Aladdin with her.”
Adams later shot back Timberlake’s claims.
“Justin acts like I bullied him, but he brought the Bell Biv Devoe,” Adams said. “He sang ‘That Girl Is Poison.’ That’s on him. I didn’t bully him into that.”
