It’s been quite a year for Justin Timberlake. First he marries his best friend slash American sweetheart Jessica Biel, then he releases his first album since 2006, The 20/20 Experience, and it debuts at, oh, you know, number 1 on Billboard 200, and now? The 32-year-old star is featured on the cover of T, The New York Times Style Magazine Men’s Fashion Fall 2013 this weekend, proving that he not only brought sexy back — but that his sexiness is here to stay.
Because seriously. Maybe it’s the leather jacket, maybe it’s the cuddle-friendly sweater, maybe it’s the slicked-back hair, or maybe it’s just JT being JT, but we’re drooling over the magazine cover and the exclusive photo next to it.
And we’re also drooling over his wise-beyond-his-years words in the article itself, out on newsstands this weekend and available here. Case in point: “I’m sure there’s some self-help cheese-ball book about the gray area, but I’ve been having this conversation with my friends who are all about the same age and I’m saying, ‘Y’know, life doesn’t happen in black and white.’ The gray area is where you become an adult … that’s the place where life happens.”
It’s also the place where hotness happens, apparently … are we right? Do you think Timberlake looks especially sexy in these photos? What’s your favorite part of his look?
