Justin Timberlake Vanity FairTalk about love 'em and leave 'em, Justin Timberlake told Vanity Fair that he hasn't spoken to ex, Britney Spears, in "nine or 10 years." Why the stalemate? Timberlake believes that their status as arguably the most famous couple of a generation was fueled by just that, but then they both grew up.

"We were two birds of the same feather -- small-town kids, doing the same thing," Timberlake told Vanity Fair. "But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn't make any sense. I won't speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person. I just don't think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers."

As part of the Mouseketeers -- which also included Spears, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling -- Timberlake's world was larger than life. But unlike today's generation of young Hollywood, who outgrow their adolescence by the time they're 15, Timberlake and the gang were "little kids with big toys. You do the math -- that's not going to last."
