Justin Timberlake is terrified of his mother.
The 'Love Guru' star - who is dating actress Jessica Biel - admits he is not easily fazed, but his mom Lynn still makes him nervous.
He said: "I try not to be afraid of anything. I'm still afraid of my mother, but I think every grown man is!"
When asked what the best advice his mother had ever given him, Justin said: "She'd say, 'Answer me when I ask you a question!' and then I'd start to answer and she'd go, 'Shut up when I'm talking.' "
However, Justin added he loves his mother because she encouraged him to follow his musical dream.
He added to Life and Style Weekly magazine: "One of my childhood idols was Michael Jordan, and my mom said that just because he plays basketball better than anyone on the face of the earth doesn't mean he's better than everyone.
"It just means he plays basketball better. I think my mom knew I had a knack for performing and wanted to instil in me that, basically, we all put our pants on the same way."
