How close is too close? JT has been filming a movie and photos surfaced of him out with his costar getting very close, like holding hands in his lap close, and he's been silent on it.. until now.

Justin Timberlake took to Instagram Wednesday to address the recent reports that he was spotted holding hands with co-star Alisha Wainwright at a New Orleans bar last month, while the two were shooting the movie Palmer together.

Timberlake said he was speaking up because the talk was "hurting the people I love," adding "nothing happened between me and my costar. I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior." Timberlake went on to apologize to his wife Jessica Biel and family "for putting them through such an embarrassing situation," and also said his behavior was not a good example to set for his son Silas.

Since the incident took place, sources have repeatedly said that there was nothing going on between the two, and that the co-stars were like brother and sister. Despite that, Timberlake obviously felt guilty about the situation, and also wrote, "I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be. This was not that."

Yeah.. can't say I'd be happy with that if I were Jessica Biel and can't say I'd put myself in that situation at all if I were his costar either. All bad. But, mistakes happen and I guess we will see how they rebound from this.
