In November 2013, Timberlake was honored along with comedian Will Ferrell, rapper Kendrick Lamar, actor Matthew McConaughey and the late "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini as GQ magazine's 2013 Men of the Year.
That year, the 'N Sync alum staged a successful comeback with the release of "The 20/20 Experience" and all of its hit singles and tour, headlined "Timberweek" with late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon, performed at the White House, hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time (earning himself another Emmy nomination), released the second part of his album, #hashtagged his way back into our hearts, reunited with 'N Sync at the MTV VMAs and starred in Ben Affleck's "Runner Runner."
"I've been doing this professionally since I was 10," "The Mickey Mouse Club" alum told GQ. "If entertainment years were dog years, man, I'd be like Gandhi. I'd be like 250 years old."
"I don't see myself as someone who's ever going to be defined by one moment," he added. "It's on to the next."
