Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s relationship was one of the most talked about topics of late 1990s and early 2000s. The couple headlined almost every top news story of the globe. Fans of these two pop-stars were sure that the pair was going to get married. But their worlds fell apart when Spears and Timberlake called the relationship off in 2003.
According to Celebuzz, more than a decade later, Tamra Davis, the director of Britney’s debut film, “Crossroads;” is revealing just how beautiful this couple was, before it all came to an end.
Davis was very much touched with these cute young lovebirds, who grown up together and lived in the same childhood superstar lifestyle, reveals Broadly.
“It was just the most beautiful relationship, seeing the two of them together and how love-y they were. They were just so close, and she was such a supporter of his. He worked just as hard as her,” she elaborated. “It was like, she would be doing rehearsals and he would be doing rehearsals. They really knew that life together,” Davis was quoted as saying.
She further described to Broadly how Spears absentmindedly draws in a notebook as character Lucy, all throughout the movie.
“I have the book. All she was writing was ‘Britney and Justin,’ all these little curlicues. It was like looking at a teenage girl’s musings—hearts and butterflies and Justin’s name.”
Producer Ann Carli and screenwriter Shonda Rhimes of “Crossroads” also opened up about Spears’ first movie role.
The coming-of-age movie follows a story of a young girl named Lucy (Spears) who sets out on a road trip to find her long-lost mom Caroline (Kim Cattrall) with her childhood friends Kit (Zoe Saldana) and Mimi (Taryn Manning).
Shonda is also executive producer and show-runner of the medical drama television series “Grey’s Anatomy” and the political thriller series “Scandal.”
