Cry him a river. Justin Timberlake is ready to come clean about what went down between him and Britney Spears at the end.

It wasn't quite the plot from his video "Cry Me a River" -- he insists that the saga of a guy getting rather torrid revenge on his cheating girlfriend is just fiction -- but it's close enough: Britney cheated on him, so he felt compelled to ditch her.

"That's reason enough, right?" he asks in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone.

It was the same scenario, he says, that ended his relationship with his two prior girlfriends.

"They've all gone down the same way. All of them," Timberlake tells the music mag. "Three strikes, I'm out. I mean, [Britney] has a beautiful heart, but if I've lost my trust in someone, I don't think it's right for me to be with them."

And as for life since Spears, Timberlake is not denying that he's fooled around with Janet Jackson and Alyssa Milano, among others -- though he says he never got down with dirrty girl Christina Aguilera.

But his most reliable date these days might be a certain Rosie Palmer. Not that he's so happy about that state of affairs.

"Actually, I'm not a huge fan of it," he says of masturbation. "I mean, it is what it is, a safe haven, there when you need it, and I don't feel guilty about it. But I always like to do everything at its best, and that just seems like settling, doesn't it?"

Aw ... someone, give the guy a hand.

Pam's new biblical proportions

"I'm having fun hanging out with my kids and teaching Sunday school. It's wonderful to make a difference in children's lives."

Smell the love

Julianne Moore may be 100 percent hetero in real life, but when it comes to puckering up for the cameras, she'd much rather have a woman for a partner.

"You kiss an actor and you don't know what they're going to smell like. But you kiss a girl, she's going to smell good. And she's very soft. They're soft and they smell nice. Guys don't," Moore opined in an interview with the London Sunday Mirror's M magazine.

But no matter how pleasant lesbian love scenes of the sort she and Toni Collette turned out in "The Hours" may be to film, Moore will have us all know that she is well aware that movie sex is nothing like real-world sex.

"We never have sex the way people do in the movies," says the mother of two. "You don't do it on the floor, you don't do it standing up, you don't always have all your clothes off, you don't happen to have on all the sexy lingerie. You know, if anybody ever ripped my clothes -- I'd probably kill them."

Unless of course, they smelled really nice.

Juicy bits

While most of us weren't paying attention, "Sex and the City" costar Kim Cattrall and her husband, Mark Levinson, with whom she wrote a how-to sex book, apparently took a little holiday vacation in Splitsville. But now, Peoplenews.com reports, the couple has reconciled. Or so Levinson says. "Everything is fine," the sound-system designer told the press. "We're together." I'm sure you're all quite relieved ...

The power of the pen: JK Rowling's $77 million annual income has made muggle mincemeat out of her fellow British female folk. The Harry Potter author landed far atop the London Mail's recent ranking of the wealthiest women in the U.K. The next wealthiest celebrity on the list was Madonna, who lives in London. She reportedly rakes in a comparatively modest $43 million a year. Guess that whole Material Girl persona really is a thing of the past.
