James Van Der Beek: I Snuck Justin Timberlake Into a Club!
He was one of the hottest actors of the 1990s, and it turns out James Van Der Beek was also quite the rebel back in the day.
In a new interview with HuffPost Live, the “Dawson’s Creek” stud confessed to letting Justin Timberlake use his ID to get into a club when he was underage.
James explained, "I was in Vegas one New Year's and somebody came by and said, ''N Sync wants to meet you!' And at the time, 'N Sync was the second to Backstreet Boys, it was before they had blown up. They had just come out with some Christmas album, like at the same time 98 Degrees did.”
"So, I said, 'okay.' And I met them and they were so sweet, they were so nice. They were such cool kids and I immediately liked them.”
However, things got much more interesting from there- “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 ID back so that Justin could get in. 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 ID, they were like, 'Ah, I don't think so, James.'"
