justin timberlake olivia wilde Justin Timberlake's 'In Time' mom Olivia Wilde: Three years his juniorJustin Timberlake‘s new sci-fi thriller film “In Time” features his rumored off-screen love interest, Olivia Wilde… as his mother.

“We laughed about it when we first saw each other,”
Timberlake tells EW of Wilde, who co-starred in 2006’s “Alpha Dog” with him as well. “First of all, Olivia is three years younger than me!”

Director Andrew Niccol tells the mag that he cast Wilde because she seemed to have an “old soul” while still being able to play a character who looked 25 years old, since everyone in “In Time” is genetically engineered to stop aging when they hit the quarter-century mark.

Timberlake says that he told Wilde a lot of stories about his own mother, Lynn Harless, while they were on set. “We’d read the script and I would say, ‘Here’s something my mom might
do,’ or ‘Here’s the way my mom might say it,'” he says. “I think
she really looked to me to give her those little things because she had
the trickier job in our scenes. But she’s obviously a great actor. When
you meet both of [our characters], it’s visually jolting, but within
seconds you’re like, ‘Oh, wow, that is his mother.'”
