Justin Timberlake has revealed that he punches pillows for stress relief. The singer-turned-actor admitted that when the pressures of life get too much he alleviates stress by playing golf, writing songs - or beating up pillows as therapy. Speaking to Star magazine, he said: "I use everything as therapy. I play golf, write songs, punch pillows. We've all done it. You get so mad that you punch a wall and then you break your hand or something." The Mirrors hitmaker also spoke about playing complex on-screen character Johnny in his current movie Trouble with the Curve, which also stars Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. He said: "We don't want to go to the movie theatre to watch people be perfect. We think we're going to escape, but what we really start doing, as soon as the first frame of the movie starts rolling, is we look to relate. "I love this movie - it treats you like you're intelligent and humorous and have a heart." Timberlake is currently at Cannes Film Festival, where his next film project is in the running for the prestigious Palm d'Or award. Directed by the Cohen brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis sees Timberlake star alongside Carey Mulligan in a music-based drama set in the 1960s.MTV
