Justin Timberlake Explains Courtside PDA with Jessica Biel

04/23/2009 at 12:55 PM EDT

Justin Timberlake scored at the Los Angeles Lakers game – and everybody saw him.

The pop star, who passionately kissed girlfriend Jessica Biel at the Staples Center recently, opened up about the publicly romantic moment on Wednesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"We're not actually that much of exhibitionists," Timberlake said. "But at the game they do the 'Kiss Me Cam,' and they were playing Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe," and we were watching all these elderly people kiss."

Timberlake and Biel got carried away – after an acting great showed off his moves. "They cut to Dustin Hoffman and his wife," said the singer. "And he planted an open-mouthed kiss on her that was just kind of award-winning in its own way. And then it cut to us and I was not to be outdone, Okay? So I mounted my girlfriend in front of 18,000 people," he said.

Retorted an amused Kimmel: "Now it looks like more of an assault situation … Keep that in the motel. You don’t have to bring that to the Lakers game."
