Justin Timberlake describes touring as being like a professional athlete

Justin Timberlake has compared going on tour to being like a professional athlete.

The ‘Sexyback’ star, who last toured in 2007 with his FutureSex/LoveShow, told GQ magazine that although he loves performing in front of his fans, he finds the day-to-day schedule rather gruelling:

“Being on the road, the hours aren't as crazy; but it is a seven-day-a-week job. I compare being on tour for music to being a pro athlete.

“You show up, and for two hours you're exerting yourself, then you go straight to the next place. Or like being a pro footballer. But they probably travel a lot more nicely than I do ' I get on a bus, they probably get on a private plane.”

The 31-year-old, who recently announced he will return to music to compose the score for ‘The Devil In The Deep Blue Sea,’ went onto explain how being on a movie set differs from being on stage:

“Acting is a different process, in a way; you work 12-hour days at least, but you get two days off. Then when filming starts you do things that aren't as vigorous because you're working so much, but you can get in short work-outs.”
