Justin Timberlake tells the Autumn/Winter issue of Arena Homme Plus he’s not nervous about fan reactions to the pictures in the mag saying he trusted the photographer Steven Klein.
Justin admits, “He explained the scenarios and I was down for it. I know the pictures he takes are like pieces of art in themselves, and that’s where you kind of have to trust who you’re working with.
“I trusted him the whole time. And he made it really comfortable for me. I’m obviously a bit more naked in these photos than I have been in the past, but it is what it is. For me, it’s like a still in film.”
Obviously the comments were made before the horrific terrorist attacks on the U.S. on September 11, which had the cover shot of a bloody Justin draped with images of the American flag inappropriate.
