Los Angeles: Popstar Justin Timberlake says that his fans are unhappy about his decision to focus on films.

The `Sexy Back` hitmaker has made a splash with his role in the superhit film `The Social Network` and is tipped to get an Oscar nod. But his fans are not supportive of the new career move, reported Ace Showbiz.

"They`re looking at me like, `Why aren`t you staying with one path?`. They look at me like I`m ungrateful for my music career because I want to do films. I had the same obstacles in music. I still do," said Timberlake.

The 30-year-old is currently preparing for four other projects in the coming year and says that he answers his fans with a question.

"I feel like I should pose the question to everyone else, If you had this opportunity, what would you do with it?," said Timberlake.
