(NEW YORK) -- Justin Timberlake was intimidated to work with director David Fincher on their new film The Social Network. Timberlake was well aware when he landed a role in the movie that Fincher previously directed a number of critically-acclaimed films, most recently the Oscar-nominated flick The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. At Friday’s New York City premiere of The Social Network, Timberlake told Us Weekly the prospect of working with Fincher “scared the [bleep] out of me.” Timberlake called his new movie, which focuses on the origins of Facebook, “dense” and said he thinks “it really touches on the younger generations and that ‘We want what we want and we want it really fast’ [mentality]." He plays the outgoing former Facebook executive Sean Parker in The Social Network, which hits theaters on Friday.
