Justin Timberlake: Musician. Actor. Gun nut?  The Tennessee native got his first rifle from his grandfather when he was 10 years old.  He used it for target practice.

"Guys like guns. We like them," he explained.

He says if he had a 10-year-old he wouldn't buy his son a gun, calling it a "careless move."

He stars in the upcoming film "In Time" opposite Amanda Seyfried. The dystopian thriller is about a future world obsessed with time.

What's next for the superstar? "I'm probably gonna strap a snowboard to my feet and take some time off," he said.
