IN SYNC ON SET
Justin Timberlake, in Vancouver shooting his first feature film, Edison, has found a kindred spirit in costar Morgan Freeman. Both Memphis natives, the duo have bonded over their southern roots and a similar sense of humor. After one heavy scene, they lightened things up by breaking into an electric slide to Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop.” Says a source close to the film: “There’s a magic between them.” The magic also continues between Timberlake and his sweetie Cameron Diaz. On his days off from the movie, Timberlake often jets back to L.A., where Diaz is shooting In Her Shoes. On one recent jaunt, the couple caught a Black Eyed Peas and N.E.R.D. performance at the Wiltern Theatre and Diaz held up her cell phone and snapped pics while Timberlake hopped onto the stage to join in on several songs.
TOMMY’S NEW TUNE

Diddy. “I know people say she’s a little hard to work with, but she’s not like that around me. She’s a sweet girl.” These days Lee is also making nice with his ex, Pamela Anderson. “We’re probably at the best point in our relationship,” he says of the mother of his two kids, Brandon, 7, and Dylan Jagger, 6. Lee’s busy finishing his autobiography (due this fall) and a new CD of electronic dance music. “I’m absolutely passionate about dance music,” he says. “It’s one big party.”
