Birth Place: Memphis, Tennessee

From his *NSYNC days to his one man misson to bring SexyBack, Justin Timberlake knows how to make headlines. We've got the goods on his journey from Star Search to stardom.

Justin Timberlake - Family Tree

Justin Timberlake's 'rents are Lynn Harless (who runs an entertainment management company called JustinTime) and Randy Timberlake. Justin's parents divorced when he was just five, with his dad re-marrying and having more children. Justin has two step-brothers named Stephen and Jonathan. Justin also had a half-sister, Laura Katherine, who died minutes after birth.

Justin Timberlake - Big Break

Although Justin made his TV debut on the '80s talent show, Star Search, he lost that competition. Justin's first real break came when he was cast in The New Mickey Mouse Club (MMC). That's where he met Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell, and future fellow *NSYNCer JC Chasez.

Justin Timberlake - The *NSYNC Years

As his Mickey Mouse Club days came to an end, a new project came up. Justin was invited to join a boy band by Lou Pearlman, a talent-agent-turned-scam-artist, who was already working with Chris Kirkpatrick. Justin invited his pal JC Chasez to join him and they were followed by Joey Fatone and Jason Watkins. Jason quickly dropped out and was replaced by Lance Bass. The newly formed boy band’s name was created by Justin’s mom – she took the last letter from each of the original boy’s first names to create *NSYNC. Despite being taken advantage of by their record company (the band was swindled out of hundreds of millions of dollars), *NSYNC enjoyed success for years to come with chart-topping albums like *NSYNC, No Strings Attached and Celebrity.

Justin Timberlake - The Solo Years

Justin has continued to keep busy during his post-*NSYNC days. In 2002, he released his first solo album, Justified, which featured singles like Cry Me a River and Rock Your Body. Justin has collaborated with the Black Eyed Peas and was featured on Nelly's song Work It. He formed his own record company in 2005, JayTee Records, and released a second solo album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, in 2006.

Justin Timberlake - The Ladies

When Justin's not chillin' with his best friend, Trace Ayala (who he designs the clothing line William Rast with), he's mixin' things up with the ladies. Justin Timberlake - as the whole planet knows - used to date Britney Spears. After a very public break-up, Justin went on to date Alyssa Milano briefly before meeting Cameron Diaz in 2003. The pair dated for three years before calling it quits in January 2007. Since then, Justin has been linked to both Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johannson.

Justin Timberlake Says...

"I'm just a very passionate person in everything I do. I really believe that whenever you do something you should put everything into it - otherwise, it's really not worth it."
