Justin Bieber can sing and dance and wear all kinds of different haircuts, but he's not Chelsea Handler's favorite interview.

The Netflix star and former E! talk show host told Variety during the Sundance Film Festival that Bieber was perhaps her worst celebrity interview ever (though really, "there's so many, I can't decide," she said).

"Justin Bieber maybe? Because he was trying to flirt with me and it was so uncomfortable," Handler said. "Like, that's his schtick, like 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."

In the 21-year-old Bieber's defense, "I think he probably does that with everybody," Handler, 40, said.

Variety wondered: Maybe it was sincere?

"You think he really loves me?" Handler asked the interviewer, cracking up, and adding that he did not ask her for her phone number.

"I was not sexually attracted to a child," she said. "Thank you for clearing that up on camera."

While Bieber may now be of-age he was quite young when he first appeared on Chelsea Lately in 2009 when he was just 15. He made multiple appearances on the show over the years.
