Justin Timberlake has a lot in common with his “Shrek” character. The â€œSexybackâ€ singer could relate to his animated character Artie in “Shrek The Third’. It is because they are both “uncool” and hated school.
The 26-year-old singer revealed, “My character in the film is not cool. He’s a bright-eyed kid who’s been told his whole life he’s a loser, but he gets the opportunity to grow.
The singer continued, “When I was a kid, I felt I didn’t fit in and didn’t enjoy school. That’s how I was able to play Artie because he doesn’t fit in that much. I was a good student, but school wasn’t awesome for me and I felt bored.”
“Shrek The Third” is Justin’s debut role in an animated movie. The singer recently confessed he enjoyed making films, but he has no intention to become a full-time film star.
The singer added, “I don’t aspire to be a movie star – I get enough attention. I always wanted to act but I never really had the courage. I thought I wasn’t going to get the opportunity to do it the way I wanted to do it.”
