'N Sync hunk Jc Chasez has a bizarre secret past as a foot model.

The 27-year-old singer admits he held the unusual job as a teen - and it proved to be a greatly rewarding experience for very little work.

He says, "I was a foot model when I was 13. This guy saw me on the beach one day, and he asked to take a picture of my foot. I was like, 'You're weird man.' He was like, 'Dude, you have a clean-looking, cool foot.'

"So he took a POLAROID, called me the next day and said, 'My clients want to use your foot for these posters.' I shaved my leg, they painted it to look like stone and I got paid two grand. It was like the lottery."
