Zooey Deschanel was nervous rapping in front of Timberlake

Los Angeles, Nov 4 (IANS) Singer Zooey Deschanel was nervous rapping in front of singer Justin Timberlake.

The “New Girl” star had to rap in front of the “Like I love you” hitmaker for their new movie “Trolls” and wasn’t feeling too confident about it like her co-star James Corden, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I think we had a similar experience where I had to spend half a day singing in front of Justin Timberlake in a recording studio, which is terrifying. But you had to go one further; you had to rap,” Corden said at his TV show “The Late Late Show with James Corden”.

Deschanel added: “They’re like, ‘How do you feel about rapping?’ I was like, ‘Wait, um, I’m sorry I didn’t realise that the rap was supposed to be me rapping, I thought that was for somebody else.’ Of course it wouldn’t be me – I’m not a rapper, now I am.

“Justin Timberlake’s there, he’s like, ‘So you want to take a minute to go over it?’ I’m like, hell yes. So I go in the other room and I listened to this rap like 20,000 times and then I went in there and did it,” she added.
