The ‘Horrible Bosses’ star admits he has a Bieber addiction himself, but his daughter Francesca’s obsession has hit an all time peak ever since he splurged on Justin’s CD.
Jason Bateman and his 4-year-old daughter Francesca ride to school together every morning he’s in L.A, blasting Disney tunes and “splitting a breakfast bar.” But lately, those Disney songs have turned to dust thanks to Francesca’s new diagnosis — Bieber fever.
“It’s my fault, I took her to the documentary [Never Say Never],” Jason, 42, told David Letterman on The Late Show on June 21. “It’s tough. He will suck you right in. It’s like a vortex, I’m looking into my own personal addiction to Justin.”
“But what I’ve done is I’ve spread it to my poor 4-year-old,” he adds. “I’ve introduced the serpent to the garden.” Uh, oh!
Jason admits that he finds it cute Francesca likes Bieber, but what he doesn’t appreciate is the things he is teaching her, things a 4-year-old should know NOTHING about.
“She’s singing about these heartbreaking relationships and these passionate bonds at the top of her lungs…it’s cute until she says. ‘Daddy, can you turn that down? We need to talk,'” Jason describes.
The Horrible Bosses star goes on to tell Dave that his “sweet, sweet, sweet girl” Francesca told him she kissed a boy named Jasper, but wanted to keep the news a secret from her mom, actress Amanda Anka.
“I said, ‘Why?'” Jason explains. “And she said, ‘Well, I want to know how it rolls out. I wanna know if this is sticking with Jasper.'” And Jason believes this whole notion of a relationship Francesca has in her head is Bieber’s fault!
“Biebs is telling her about how things will blow apart in a heartbeat and Jasper could be knee-deep in the whole class,” Jason explains. “I mean, she knows English, she understands the concept and now she thinks that love and romance could be a world of pain!”
David Letterman, shocked by what he’s hearing, replies, “I have a 7-year-old son and I don’t think he knows who Justin Bieber is! So have I done something wrong or something right?” HAHA!
