Justin Timberlake is reported to be taking voice lessons to make his voice more manly. His distinctive high-pitched voice helped him land his hit albums 'Cry Me A River' and 'Justified' but he has reportedly missed out on two lucrative film roles due to his squeaky voice.
A source close to him said: "He was dejected after the casting bosses rejected him… At first they refused to tell him why they had reached their decisions, in case it hurt him. But he wanted to know if he needed more acting experience. And they eventually confessed they rejected him because he sounded more like a 12-year-old boy than an action hero".
He is said to be listening to the smooth tones of George Clooney for inspiration and doing daily exercises to develop a deep voice.
But it's not all bad, his voice did land him a role as the voice of a young boy in the upcoming Shrek 3.
