Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake might just be this fall's hottest co-star pairing, and the duo posed for W Magazine's October 2011 issue as a political couple in promotion for their upcoming flick In Time.

The film, set in the future, revolves around a world where time is like money, and people must buy themselves more time to live when they stop aging at 25.  Timberlake & Seyfried's characters meet when he buys himself too much time and turns to her for help.

In the interview, Timberlake discussed his attraction to a wide variety of movie roles.  Most recently, he starred in The Social Network, where his character was a money-craving businessman, and a completely opposite role - the hopeless romantic in Friends With Benefits.  Justin related this want to change up roles to his career as a musician, saying, "After The Social Network I got two or three sociopaths pitched to me.  I didn't want to play that again.  It's the same for musicians - once you do a song that's a big deal, you get pitched a smiliar song.  But just like I didn't want my second album to sound like my first one, I want all the characters I play to be different and distinct."

Seyfried, on the other hand, expressed her interest in acting in totally girly movies, although she's varied genres before in flicks like Jennifer's Body. "I love acting like I'm in love," she explained. "It's a very positive thing.  Making a movie in general is romantic.  It's very special, very intimate.  So you can see why a lot of actors get together.  When you're young, it's hard not to see yourself together with a co-star.  But I've been doing this long enough to know that's usually not the greatest idea."

Although Seyfried might realize it's not the best idea to get in a relationship with her co-star, she did have to admit that she knew of him long before they filmed the movie.  "I was into [N'Sync] in middle school.  I definitely danced in my friends' basements for hours and hours to N'Sync's first album."
