'She’s like the raddest chick on the planet,' Timberlake says of costar
Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake may be huge Hollywood stars, but that doesn’t mean they don’t get starstruck themselves. Case in point: The pair geeked out over Gwen Stefani’s visit to the set of DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls.
In the film, which stars Kendrick as a bubbly Troll leader Poppy and Timberlake as anxious town outcast Branch, Stefani plays a troll named DJ Suki and lends her voice to the soundtrack on a song with Timberlake.
“I was like, Gwen’s in the movie… how can I just find a reason? I wanna do a song with Gwen, I have to do a song with Gwen” Timberlake said. “She’s like the raddest chick on the planet.” “We were both pretty geeky the day that she was there,” Kendrick added. “I came in for a recording session and just caught the tail end of Gwen’s session, and I was like full-on saucer-eyed.”
