The hottie credited for bringing sexy back might be leaving the music world for a bit. JT wants to put music on the back burner and focus on movies.

Justin Timberlake loves acting so much that he’s taking a hiatus from his music career. The 29-year-old global heartthrob, who stars in the flick The Social Network,which hits theaters Oct. 1, tells Entertainment Weekly that he’s not going to make music just because it’s his job.

“Does a painter make a painting because he has to make it by December 21st?” he told the mag. “No, he doesn’t. It happens when it pours out of him. That’s how music is for me…”

And more uh-oh here: “I never stop making music,” Timberlake retorts. “I don’t know what else to tell you, except that I just don’t know [in] what capacity I want to be involved anymore.”

Justin, who plays Sean Parker, Mark Zuckerberg‘s Internet guru in the film, desperately fought to be taken seriously as an actor.

“I did a marathon of testing for the film,” says Justin. “I tested more than anyone. I have to fight against my music career — I’m cognizant of that. But I didn’t care. I loved the part and I wanted to do work with David [Fincher] so bad that I was like, ‘We can read this scene butt naked if you guys want.'”

Don’t forget to catch The Social Network this weekend, and tell us if YOU think Justin should stick to acting!
