Hundreds of girls waited hours Sunday to catch sight of Timberlake, some with the singer's name written across their bosoms.
Hearing the screams for an autograph of their idol, he spent a fair amount of time signing his name for them before catching up with the rest of his companions on the red carpet.
Among them was Carey Mulligan wearing a sleek, geometrically structured white dress with a black top and deeply plunging neckline.
Filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen headed the team, which also included the star of the film Oscar Isaac, along with John Goodman and Garret Hedlund, whose girlfriend, the actress Kirsten Dunst, showed up at the last minute with Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel.
