Justin Timberlake: 'I Owe Amy Adams My Life'

Justin Timberlake may be looking forward to a life together with fiancé Jessica Biel, but he revealed that that future with his bride-to-be may have never been possible if it had not been for his on-screen love interest in the upcoming sports drama Trouble with the Curve.
As the singer and actor recounted to ET at the Westwood premiere for the film on Wednesday evening, his co-star Amy Adams may have saved his life while the two were filming a scene in the cold waters of the Blue Ridge Mountains in northern Atlanta.
"We shot that scene in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the water was just below fifty degrees. It was freezing," he depicted. "Amy actually saved my life. Unbeknownst to me, I was turning blue and couldn't process a thought, so she actually saved my life. I owe Amy Adams my life."
Adams, who plays the daughter of an aging baseball scout portrayed by Clint Eastwood, joked about having to give Timberlake mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
"I saved [Justin's] life; I did. Some people call it mouth-to-mouth, some people call it kissing--any way, it's nice work if you can get it," the Fighter actress said.
Thankfully, the show went on and Timberlake was able to carry out his role as Adams' character's eventual love interest and Eastwood's character's fellow scout for another team.
Eastwood, whose character brings along his daughter with him on his final scouting trip, discussed the film's central father-daughter relationship and its hopeful resonance with moviegoers.
"A lot of people have [had] that father-daughter relationship that happened because a man has been working...[and] sometimes they don't get to spend as much time with their daughter as they're supposed to," said Eastwood, who also produced but did not direct the film.
