Justin Timberlake stunned the audience at the American Cinematheque Awards when he called his former Trouble with the Curve co-star Amy Adams “a monster” in front of a packed house of Hollywood’s finest.
Justin targeted Amy for her attitude towards one thing in particular -- her passion for karaoke.
“Amy Adams is a monster, more specifically a karaoke monster,” Justin quipped Friday as he honored Amy for her body of film work at the American Cinematheque Awards gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.The Hollywood Reporter detailed Justin’s statements about how much of an underlying fierceness the sweet actress has.
“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,” he continued.
Justin made the remarks to remind those of the audience who might work with Amy in the future to watch their backs.
The singer and actor detailed a story about one evening in particular when the two went out for some drinks with other cast mates after work.
After about five tequilas, he said, “She pretty much bullied me into singing ‘A Whole New World’ from Disney’s Aladdin with her.”
“But next time, I’m choosing the [expletive] song because I have a history with Disney,” laughed Justin, in reference to his stint on The Mickey Mouse Club.
“There’s a whole PTSD thing going on,” he laughed.
After receiving an award from the organization, Amy smacked back at Justin for revealing her deep, dark secret.
“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.”
The 2012 movie Trouble with the Curve also starred Clint Eastwood, Matthew Lillard, and John Goodman and detailed the story of an aging baseball scout whose daughter joins him on a scouting trip.
