There are a lot of relationships in the entertainment industry that many of us would never believe could have ever actually happened and we often ger surprised by certain friendships that are revealed. While a few of these friendships blossom and last for a very long time, it is no real surprise that some of these obscure friendships do not last long at all.
One of the most surprising friendships that we have heard of, is that of former Dawson's Creek star James Van Der Beek and former *Nsync singer Justin Timberlake, who had a chance meeting with one another many years ago. While this did not blossom into a huge friendship, the two stars did enjoy a night on the town together, despite the fact that Justin was underage.
During a recent interview, James Van Der Beek revealed how he met *Nsync before they became huge stars and went out clubbing with the boys. Since they were underage, James decided to lend Justin Timberlake his ID so that he could get into the club which worked a treat, although Lance Bass was not so lucky.
Van Der Beek told Huffington Post, "I was in Vegas one New Year's and somebody came by and said, '*NSYNC wants to meet you!' And at the time, *NSYNC was the second to Backstreet Boys, it was before they had blown up. So, I said, 'OK.' And I met them and they were so sweet, they were so nice. I remember that night, we were all going to some club and they were all too young. And so I went in and somehow passed my I.D. back so that Justin could get in with my I.D. And then Justin got in and then tried to pass it off to Lance [Bass] to get in. By the third time [the bouncers] saw a James Van Der Beek I.D., they were like, 'Ah, I don't think so James.'"
We would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in that club when James Van Der Beek and Justin Timberlake walked in. Who would have thought it?
