Chelsea Handler: Justin Bieber Was My Worst Interview, Made Me Feel Like “Child Molester” — WATCH VIDEO HERE
The “Chelsea Lately” host stopped by the Variety Studio at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Saturday, where she was asked to name “the worst celebrity you’ve ever interviewed.” Handler answered, “Oh, there’s so many. I can’t decide. I mean, Justin Bieber maybe, because he was trying to flirt with me and it was so uncomfortable.”
“Like, that’s his schtick,” continued the former E! personality. “He would come on and flirt with you and you just felt like a child molester right away, and I was like, I don’t want to feel that way.”
When questioned if that’s really Bieber’s “schtick,” Handler said, “I think he does that to, like, you know — you know, I think he probably does that with everybody.” She then laughed at the possibility that Bieber actually “loves” her.
Handler confirmed, however, that the superstar didn’t ask for her phone number. And when the interviewer wondered if she was “into it,” the new Netflix star dryly responded, “No, I was not sexually attracted to a child. Thank you for clearing that up on camera.”
As Gossip Cop actually reported at the time, Bieber did appeared to be flirting with Handler during a 2011 Valentine’s Day appearance on her show, at which time he was definitely underage (see photo above). Handler, however, seemed to be giving it right back. Check out both videos below.
