Justin Bieber 'lucky' to have Selena Gomez, 'Never Say Never' director says
That would be the singer's "Never Say Never" director, Jon Chu, who caught up with the Ministry while promoting the pop phenom's 3-D flick.
"I just thought, 'Wow, she looks like a movie star!' " Chu said, admitting he was star-struck over Gomez at Tuesday's premiere, which was also attended by Usher, Diddy, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Miley Cyrus, to name a few.
"I think Justin's very lucky," the director said about the pair's much discussed relationship.
But, lucky for what? Owning the most epic teen love story to ever grace Twitter? Sushi dates in between stops on his world tour?
"[Lucky] to have such a good friend," Chu said.
Fine, be cagey. But perhaps Chu still sees the child in the pop star, the one who needs not concern himself with affairs of the heart just yet.
"There are those times when it's 2 in the morning and he's playing video games and his mom is yelling at him to go to bed," Chu said of the boy inside Bieber's bravado, "And when he got sick, he needed help, and not like an adult, like a kid who is sick and needs to lean on his mom and grandmom."
