As one of the world's best known stars, he's used to jetting all over the place to promote his music and films.
But things turned awkward for Justin Timberlake this week when the language barrier caused some problems during a seriously cringeworthy interview in Brazil.
The star, who was promoting latest film Runner, Runner, looked extremely uncomfortable as he struggled through the five minute slot with Brazilian host Sabrina Sato.
Justin remained a true professional during the bizarre chat, during which the interviewer only managed to speak broken English.

Things took a very awkward turn when Sabrina told the star: ''You dance like a black American. Would you like to learn how to Samba like a black Brazilian?''
Clearly perplexed by the totally un-PC question, JT looked a little confused, replying: ''But Brazilian is just Brazilian right?''
He then turned to his publicist with a smile, obviously unsure of how to proceed while nervously laughing.
The enthusiastic host then jumped out of her seat to try and do the Samba with Justin, but got told to sit back down by his publicist. So awkward!
To make matters worse (if that was even possible), Sabrina gave the Suit and Tie singer a gift - which was a plaster cast of her bottom. As you do.
Ever the gent, Justin, who has just released the audio for his new single TKO, laughed politely at the truly strange gift before the interview wrapped. We bet it found its way into the bin on the way out.
