Justin Timberlake Is Worried About How His Fame Will Affect His Kids

Justin Timberlake is opening up about his kids and his fears of how they will be affected by his fame.

The 39-year-old actor was a guest on Dax Shepard‘s podcast Armchair Expert and he talked about being a dad to his two kids with Jessica Biel. They couple are parents to sons Silas, 5, and Phineas, who is almost one.

Justin said, “I try to be conscious of making sure we can live a life where we’re not weirdly private but we’re conscious of making sure they can be kids for as long as possible. And not have the weight of somebody else treating them differently because of something that their parents do.”

Justin and Dax both agreed that they’re worried it will be difficult for the kids to make real friendships because of their fame.

“I have that great fear that kids are going to hang out with them solely because of that or resent them because of that,” Dax said.

Dax‘s wife Kristen Bell is the voice of Anna in Frozen and Justin is the voice of Branch in the Trolls movies. They both said they tell their kids to not reveal this detail to other kids.

“I know you’re proud and you should be able to say that, but I’m just warning you, that’ll probably make other kids jealous and they won’t know how to handle that feeling,” Dax said.

Justin added, “Yeah, we have this same thing where, like, the kids at school with my five-year-old are like, ‘Your dad is Branch.’ For guys like us, you know, the hope is that we just keep instilling in them that we got really fun jobs, but it’s not who we are.”
