The Interview
Justin Timberlake
RENAISSANCE MAN
He sings, he dances, he acts—and he golfs. The six handicapper just signed a sponsorship deal to play with Callaway's FT-iQ driver and is building a course in Tennessee.

Dan Patrick: You once crossed paths with Peyton Manning?

Justin Timberlake: Back when I was in 'N Sync, we did this charity bowling event for Reggie Miller. Peyton had just gotten signed to the Colts, so he was there. I walked up to shake his hand and said, "Hey, man, really honored to meet you." I told him the whole story of how my cousin went to Tennessee and I watched him play and congratulated him on the Colts and blah, blah, blah. And he looks up at me and says, "That's great, man. Tell you what. Can you give me an 11 1/2?" I was like, "Uh, what?" He says, "The shoes. I don't have any shoes. Can you give me 11 1/2?" And I was like, "Uh, O.K. So he thinks I work at this damn bowling alley." I didn't even say anything to him. I thought it was so funny that I just went and got him his shoes and brought them back. I said, "Here you go." And I walked off.

DP: He never knew?

JT: I think his wife told him later. Because the next time we played Indianapolis, he called and asked for tickets for his family. And I said, "I'll get as many tickets as you want if you find some bowling shoes for me."

DP: If I said you could either win the Masters or win an Academy Award ...

JT: I think I'd go with the Masters.

DP: All right. How close are you to an Academy Award, and how close are you to winning at Augusta?

JT: I'm really far from one and the other one's impossible. And I'll let you figure that out.

DP: When people come up to me, they want to talk sports. Do people come up to you and say, "Sing for me"?
