Justin Timberlake Says He and Jessica Biel Want to Avoid Being "Weirdly Private" About Their Kids

Justin can relate to this, too, having played Branch in the animated movie Trolls. He laughs, “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, ” Justin continues. “Hopefully down the road, then that has more weight to it I guess.”

But Dax remarked that it’s going to be a struggle for their children no matter what, because even their best attempts to raise them as normal kids won’t diminish the privilege they’ll experience. He said, “They’ll have this weird challenge of being privileged, which seems bizarre that that’s a challenge but that’ll be their thing.”

Both Dax and Justin confessed that they’ve struggled with privilege too, with the singer sharing that he’s “become skilled in the art of self-deprecation.”

Justin says that he often makes fun of himself because it makes others laugh, especially on shows like Saturday Night Live, but knows it can come off as “false humility.”
