Justin Timberlake at 30: From Teen Dream to Leading Man

See how the birthday boy (Jan. 31) ditched the curls to become a singing, acting, designing phenomenon


A decade before The Social Network, Timberlake makes his acting debut as a model with a heart of gold (and abs of steel) in Model Behavior, a 2000 Disney Channel movie about a supermodel and her regular girl look-alike. Timberlake also has his first onscreen kiss. "It's really deep. I'm a teen supermodel," he jokes to Access Hollywood about the role. "He kind of plays a teen role model, hunky kind of image, and I'm nothing like that." (Psst – he was being sarcastic.)
